    Well, it seems quite ironic, but my 11-year old neighbor ran over a few hockey pucks with their cub cadet tractor and flung them across the street after splitting them in half. One of them, hits my Explorer, putting a hockey puck size dent in it. Has this ever happened to anyone else, and how do I approach the problem and fix it? Like, how do I tell them this happened and ask for money to fix it?

    Don't hesitate to go over and confront the neighbors. payup

    If you damaged their car, I'm sure they wouldn't.

    It sounds like neighbor kid was cutting his own grass?
    If that's the case, parents homeowners insurance will cover it in a heartbeat. Of course you should say something, they shouldn't have any problem turning it into insurance.

    Approach the parents asap. Be nice about it. Explain the situation. Let them come up with a solution, first. If agreeable with everyone involved, there are no hard feelings. Don't let the situation linger. If everyone acts responsibly, like adults, everything should work out just fine.

    I'd confront them, my idiot neighbor kids play golf and every other sport in their front yard and for some reason my truck is the endzone, green, and home base all the time, i'm waiting to hear glass shatter one of these days.

    This has to be the most cryptic message ever posted to Lawnsite.

    Splain please.

    You should have immediately gone to their home and showed them the damage along with the hockey puck.

    richard--both jim dailey and a1nlx are ham radio operators.

    "73's" a ham radio saying meaning "best wishes" or something very similar.
