    Since they made it specifically about the "accident" they didn't feel a need to call the cops about but fully blame me, I think it puts this situation in a curious legal space because they didn't allow the law to handle the situation properly but they want to use the incident to take away my position. I don't think it's hard to see some questions to an attorney are reasonable, should it go that far.

    Thanks man. I did file. And, as much as i talk big :censored2:, I would need to muster up the balls to tell them this myself... Id prefer an attorney do it for me.

    Update: so my sister totaled her car this morning and I'm relieved not to be driving with this on my mind...
    Also, the lady who works in the office and handles uniforms, etc passed me as I was leaving preload and told me to study my 5's and 10's. That has to be a good sign...

    Off topic: No injuries at your sister's accident? Having a vehicle totalled is too vague

    I always block residential streets (where parking is very limited) and make sure there is absolutely no way for people to try and squeeze around me. With cars on both sides of me there’s no way for for some idiot to back into me. However, never under estimate the power of stupid. You can be doing everything right and still get hit.

    I did notice it but I figured you need more reminding of it.

    It's :censored2: incredible to totally block someone in on purpose and on your walk back to the truck you see the maroon doing a fifty point back mounting the curb and going over grass to try to save ten seconds to get out anyway.

    Or you see that they are backing anyway like a tard so you run to your truck and start honking seconds before they clip you. Like gd dang people just wait ten seconds.

    Sounds like they plan on sending you back out with a supervisor. Anytime there’s an accident or injury you can expect that.

    Know your DOK and show some contrition and you should be back.

    Admit to them that you will be more aware of where you park from now on

    I go back and video that guy's normal backing out routine. Then contact a lawyer to sue him for causing you the lost wages you would have earned.

    Asians have a rep of being bad drivers?

    There is a asian doctor on my route that can't back his BMW down the driveway! It's on a hill with a bend. Lol, he looks at me as I back all the way up to his garage!
