YUP! It happened, my BRAND NEW 2019 Hyundai Elantra was damaged less than a week after I got her. May you feel my pain in the video above as I rant about how upset I was during those moments. That entire day was a whole test of my patience, thankfully I passed them all (slightly).
When I got home after my car had just been scratched, another crazy thing was going on: my laptop battery died and I had to frantically buy a replacement for $70 from a laptop battery store in Vegas (a big thank you and shout out to Battery Source)! I can't thank them enough for having it in stock.
I must say, I did remain surprisingly calm during such trying ordeals. Of course not the entire time as the laptop battery breakdown was even harder for me to go through than my new car getting scratched. That was more of an issue because I had to complete my client's final video (a $660 job). Customer satisfaction is my guarantee and I usually deliver within 24 hours so I had to make sure I completed and delivered that video! I knew my car could be fixed plus the person who bumped my car had insurance so it was all good.
