Apparently Colin's hospital bill would be about $1800. Now, I don't know that much about cars, but I don't think it's that bad. Basically, he just needs an area of panel on the back right replaced completely. And the back bumper, which is cracked badly. Commodores are pretty common, I'm sure the parts could be salvaged from a wreck and I don't give a damn if half my blue car ends up puce.

I know it's labour as well as parts, but that just doesn't sound right to me. I was expecting several hundred, or even $1000. But $1800? That's why cars are constructed in sections of panel, so one can be removed and replaced by another.

My dad will take him to get another estimate from someone else. He's much less likely to be ripped off than I am. My mum will lend me the money, and I'm very happy to pay her back whatever it costs. I hit that damn pillar, and I'm totally cool to pay what I need to for my car to be fixed. I don't have the money now, but I'll be paying it back in large installments when I get work.

So, cool with paying. Shouldn't have hit a pillar. My fault.

But I just don't buy that it's that much work.

Also, my dad says my dwarf name should be "Bumpy" or "Smashy".

Isn't it great of him to be so considerate of your feelings? I realise he is joking/teasing, my dad does the same.
