    I want to know if you were in a accident or you hit something ? What's the process? Today I was backing up and was gonna turn and I bump a car that was on side walk and I panic and left it was wasn't a huge hit or anything it was just a tap should I be worried no one seen I was doing EAMs

    So you didn't call anyone or leave a note on the car? (Why was the car parked on the sidewalk?) With all of the security cameras around you have got to be upfront and honest about everything that you do----if you bump a car you man up and admit it.

    If you have not heard anything about it by now you are probably in the clear but in the future you need to do the right thing.

    I voted "don't say anything" because it is clearly too late to tell anyone at the center. You would be terminated for failure to report an accident in a timely manner.

    IF they catch wind of it now you will be fired with very little chance of getting your job back.

    cosmo1 Just another internet hooligan.

    If you "oopsied" my pickup, and somebody saw it, you would be in a world of hurt. Cross your fingers and pray.

    Put yourself in the shoes of the owner of the car you dinged and didn't have the common courtesy to at least leave a note.

    You will have a sleepless night and I don't feel the least bit sorry for you.

    This guy leaves the scene of an accident and calls no one and the news is trying to crucify a driver for rolling a package out a door? :rolleyes2:

    It is 7:53 pm (ET) on 10/29/14.

    I just wanted to note the date and time that you and I were in agreement.

    But, you certainly scratched the paint on the other car.

    This isn't 30 years ago when you could 'rub' a chrome bumper with no damage. Somebody is probably p*ssed and trying to find out what happened.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    If you had called it in immediately there wouldn't be a problem. Call anything thing in that you even remotely question.

    We had a guy call in an accident 40 minutes after it happened. He was terminated and sat at home for about a week.

    This is what keeps people from calling in sometimes.

    You freak out immediately after it happens. Thirty minutes later you're thinking more rationally and know you should call it in. However you don't because you know you'll be fired.

    He was trying to do what he could to appease the homeowner.

    Property can be replaced, your driving job can't.

    What can I do now? Will it be too late ?

    It is after 9pm here on the East Coast so there is little to nothing that you can do right now. When you go in to work tomorrow morning you have two choices: fess up or keep quiet. At this point, and it really pains me to say this, it may be best to keep quiet.
