The Question Club
So, today I was driving out of my neighborhood and saw some guy pull out of his driveway wildly, nearly driving backwards into the driveway across from him. He pauses there, then takes off, on the wrong side of the road, to the exit I'm driving to as well. I'm behind him, since he finally got into the proper lane. |
We stop at the exit. He stops ahead of me, a little short, and I slam my brakes to compensate. I feel our bumpers bounce going 5mph and think "oh shit". The man turns, looks at me, then gets out and says his bumper is bent. I get out, hurriedly apologizing, saying I stopped short after he did. He tells me he can't understand me and says his bumper is bent. I look and his bumper is perfectly fine. I look at my car and it's fine too. I run my hand on his bumper and feel nothing. No bent, no indentation. I apologize again and tell him that I don't feel anything and it all looks perfectly fine. And it is. No bump, dent, anything.
He asks if I live in the neighborhood and I said I do, and his whole demenor changed. He smiled sunnily, said everything was okay and drove off. I never gave him my information, or took his, told him where I lived or anything.
It's been bothering me all day. WTF happened. Is he gonna drive around the neighborhood looking for my car and ring my doorbell? Did he realize I was a local and wasn't gonna put up with his "it's bent" song and dance? I'm not liable for anything, am I? I never gave him my information, he never gave me his, we don't know each other's names. It was a bump at 5mph. Nothing was damaged and he said it was okay and drove off.
What should I do?
