I was on my way to Walgreens this evening with Cory and Remmy. We were stopped at a stoplight, and I was staring at the car in front of me. All of a sudden, we were moving forward. I stepped harder on the brakes but we kept going. Then I realized that we weren't going anywhere, the lady in front of us had a 5-speed and she'd let off the brakes enough to start going backwards. She wasn't going very fast, but I still just stared at her as she ran into our front bumper. I didn't do anything. She hit us pretty softly, and then she stayed there for a few seconds. I couldn't back up because someone else was right behind me. Then she started moving forward and the light turned green and traffic started going again. She never looked back or waved or got out to make sure we were OK (which was fine because she was going really slowly, but still...). We didn't even look at the bumper when we got home, but all the way back I was stopping many feet behind the person in front of me, all nervous-like.

you should have got her license # and sued her ass!

Well, if I could prove that she actually did anything, then maybe I would have thought of that. But she didn't do any damage. She was only going half a mile an hour.

Maybe she was too embarrassed to acknowledge anything happening

Probably. I probably would have been embarrassed too, but that shouldn't stop someone making sure everything's OK.
