Came out of the grocery store to find a cart laying on it's side at near the front passenger fender of the Caprice.

Some people's kids. frown

I will just get if fixed. I don't understand people.

It's tough to judge the picture because of all the reflections. If the paint is not cracked at all, consider paintless dent removal. These guys are amazing!

+1 for PDR, even if the paint is scratched down to metal. Then you have a body shop do the paint. But at least you won't have filler in the panel. From the location of it, should be easy for PDR. You can go on yelp and fill in the search for Paintless Dent Repair. Don't ask the body shop their opinion of PDR for it because it means less money for them.

A few small scratches which will buff out. I am going to try them on Monday. Had them do some stuff on the WS6 and Truck and I was pretty amazed.

I hate when people are inattentive to their shopping carts. I yelled at a couple kids who pushed a cart in a parking lot and I had to run to keep it from hitting a really nice Back to the Future Toyota pickup. I yelled at the kids and saw their parents and yelled that the parents didn't hit their kids enough when they were younger.

Nice thing about Aldi and a nicer grocery store around here that has pull up service. Which helps keep shopping cart problems to a minimum.

My car would be at the far left somewhere. Away from the front of the store where everybody else parks.

I try to park in the middle of nowhere and usually come out to someone in a total beater parked right next to me.

Ditto.

I have found that the people who like to park close to the entrance usually don't care to respect others' belongings.

It called jellousy. They think that you think your car is "too good" to park next to regular cars. So that pull their pos next to yours out of spite.

Used to work at a grocery store, saw it every day.

Agreed. You still need to be careful of slope in some of these lots.

I always park my Acura in the distant. My GF [censored] about it but, I just dont trust other people. My deceased Aunt Linda always use to say, "park your car/truck right next to new vehicles at any time possible!" Theres no guarantee with that neither.
