It's never too late to do the right thing

Imagine my surprise when I came out of the CVS on Ribaut Road at11 a.m. April 25 to find my car had been swiped by "a woman driving a little silver Prius," according to the nice gentleman who witnessed it and waited by my car to tell me about it.

It seems the woman was backing out of her parking space and swiped the rear driver's side of my car with the front passenger side of her car. According to the witness, she then pulled back into her parking space and proceeded to back out again, almost hitting my car a second time. At this point, the man jumped out of his truck and attempted to get the license plate number, as it was obvious she was leaving the scene.

Alas, the woman had beat a hasty retreat without the courtesy of leaving her insurance information for me. Actually, I missed the whole thing by less than two minutes.

I'm asking the driver of the Prius to do the right thing in a belated fashion. Come forward, show your integrity, and we'll go down together to file an accident report with the police department. Then the silver paint from your Prius can be removed from my car, the white paint from my car can be removed from your car, and the scrapes on both cars can be buffed out, compliments of your insurance company.

I'm in the phone book.
