... when you walk out the door, see the other side of the street empty for street sweeping and your heart sinks because you think you parked not-your-car there and now it's gone, but you have to get to something else so you don't have time to stop and think about it. And then on the way to that something else you lose your keys, so you go walking back and forth between home and Davis scanning for your keys (and not pausing to look for the car because of course it's been towed...) and HAPPILY you manage to find your keys, which someone picked up and brought in to their office, which wasn't the office you were going to, but then you have to go to work - half an hour later than planned - and then you have to tell the owners of the car what's up, because you need the license plate number to check on its status, and of course that conversation is no fun "Your car? Either towed or stolen. What's your lic. plate number?"
And you get the number, and you call the local tow-mafia and... they don't have the car. "You should call the cops and ask them." and you do, and they don't, either.
So you start tagging people around you to try to look on nearby side streets, because maybe you're just too tired and stupid to ACTUALLY remember where you parked?, and one of those very kind people manages to find the car, around the corner from where you thought you'd left it and it's safe and sound and suddenly ALL the stress can leave your body, and you collapse?

Yeah, me neither...

(I'm fine, no one else was involved, and (thus, obviously) it's all my own damned fault.)

Turning out of our driveway this morning, I pranged my front drivers'-side quarter panel against the utility pole that stands at the edge of said driveway.

I suspect said quarter-panel is toast. The auxiliary light-cluster is still working, but is held in place by its cables, rather than by its mounting HW.

So, anyone have a good body shop in the Camberville/Charlestown/near-town-side-of-Everett, where good in this case is 'competent, cheap (as this is out-of-pocket), has good connections to junk yards for parts scavenging'. I don't need fabulous quality, but will do with 'reasonable'.

What a fucking Monday.
