lil'bit of sideswipe

Noticed on the weekend when I drove over a steep driveway entrance/exit I get a clunk in the front end. Had the tires off today just to see if visually any of the bushing were shot.
Decided since it is slightly above freezing that I would rinse 3 months of road salt and grime off the car, this uncovered a 3ft long by 6"high swipe down my driver door and partially on the front fender. Through the paint, chipping already in a patch, and mini dents all along the area.
Just fucking lovely.
The only thing about this car I care about is resale. In needs to last me until the Fall when I jump into a new Canyon.


Is it such a big deal in this world to leave a note and fess up to your momentary stupidity?
