    That doesn't seem that bad, maybe the pictures don't do it justice.

    In picture #2, are the body lines messed up, or is that just the picture deformed ?

    Rear door / front door / rear pillar ????

    IDK.... That doesn't look right.

    Stupid ? That depends if you've ever done it before. If not, I'd say it's just a bad mistake.....

    Now if you do it again...well, then I'd have to agree with the title of this thread.

    Sounds like your boss has already let it go, you will always kick yourself about it. I backed over a light post at a customers when I was 22, I still can't shake the stupid feeling and I'm 44 now. Maybe check up on the car in 20 years and see if it still matters...

    I did some on/off site relocations at a car dealership this year, I was very very nervous the entire time.

    your boss let it go, however that old man walking the dog across the street won't. when the glass broke, it caused the dog to jump pulling the man's back out. You will hear from the man's lawyer on Monday and don't think for a moment that the dog won't need couseling

    Sounds like you have a great boss, and it sounds like your boss has a great employee. Chit happens!! It would be stupid, if you didn't feel bad about it.
