Do I drive a large magnet?
So, I have a car which I really like. It's a black 94 volkswagen jetta. When I bought it a little over two years ago, it looked something like this:
But, hey, things change, entropy takes over, and I get hit... all the time.
Every day my car seems to look a little more like this:
Just yesterday somebody backed into my front, driverside door and crumpled it up pretty well. The good news is he was a decent guy and even though I wasn't there he was sure to leave his info.
What is it about my car? In the past two years I have been hit five times and shot once! Did you hear me? five times!!! And shot with a pellet gun.
The crazy thing about all of this: I have only even been in the car 1 of those times. That particular instance I was stopped at a stop sign and was rear ended. Every other time was either in my driveway or another parking spot.

You're just lucky I haven't shot it with MY guns:

I drive a jetta as well, and have been hit 6 times I can recall in 2 1/2 years. last january, my car got rear ended by a public safety officer, and the day i got my car back from the shop, a tow truck rear ended me.
Those were the only times I was in the car - the rest of the times were a result of parking in newark, or once at a church - no one ever left a note.

it's probably a personal attack on jetta drivers.

Laura, that's really funny!
Corin, that is wild! For real, I was cracking up when I read that.

I don't think we should be so shocked that jettas get into lots of accidents considering that they get into crashes in their commercials!
