What If You Are a DC Kisser?

Walking home tonight, I saw another DC kiss in action – this time someone backed into another car, and post-crunch, sped off. That makes me wonder:

What do you do if your the DC Kisser?

Do you flee the scene as this scofflaw did, or do you stick around and say your sorry, or at least leave a note? The deviant in me says haul ass, but as a “kissed” car owner I am so glad my neighbour owned up quick.

What’s your plan of action?

Married, mortgaged, and soon to be a father, Wayan Vota is in the fast lane to mid-life respectability – until the day his brood finds his intimate journal of global traveling and curses him with the ever-eternal reply “I’m gonna be just like you, Dad!”

  1. By “DC Kisser,” do you mean “Hit and Run Suspect?”
    That’s spin Rove couldn’t even dream up. :)

  2. Karma always catches up with you. I say own up. At least your conscience will feel better. It is the ethical thing to do.

    It may cost at first, but overall your constitution will be better in the long run and you won’t have a regret.

    It is like finding a dollar or in this day a $20 bill on the ground. Do you look for the owner or take it as your own?

    I have felt much better returning it to the owner and remember it a lot longer than finding it and pocketing it.

    For me, it’s the easy decision. “Mama always said” – Do the right thing.

  3. In the DC kiss I saw last night, the damage was minor – I heard a light get crunched but wasn’t sober enough to determine whose light it was. It very well could be that the kisser was more damaged than the kissed.

  4. Wayan, I thought YOU were the DC Kisser. Or was that just before you got engaged?

    I would own up. Like Will H. says, you feel better about yourself when you do the right thing.
