    Friend scraped another friend's car; just a scrape

    Everyone involved is autistic.

    Ok, so my friend Jim was leaving a party when he accidentally backed into his friend Bob's car. Just made a barely noticeable scrape on both cars. Bob wasn't there when Jim made the scrape, but their friends Tasha and Jake were. Jim insisted he tell Bob, but Tasha and Jake convinced him to just shrug it off and at least sleep on it.

    Suffice to say, Jim says he feels like an idiot, lol. As I said, I saw both scrapes-- barely noticeable at all. You'd really have to look close to notice. (Nothing broken, thank God, he says. I agree.)

    Should Jim let it go and be more careful next time? OR should he at least speak to Bob, Tasha, and Jim?

    Absolutely he should tell the person who’s car was hit. It is criminal not to. It also makes someone a crappy friend not to tell them and pay for the damage .

    He should tell him. It is the right thing to do. I think you already knew the answer to this question.

    Jim committed a hit and run and can be legally charged. He needs to come clean

    Tell Bob. This way they can sort it out with or without insurance getting involved.

    Jim can get some auto scratch remover, and buff out the spot he hit, and do his own car too.

    Jim may think it's just a scrape, but it's Bob's opinion that matters

    Jim needs to come clean before this comes out in the open, and it will eventually. There's also a chance of this escalating where the OP claims there was more damage.

    I doubt that any photos were taken at the time...Just something to think about.

    Honesty is the best policy. Jim needs to be humble, apologize and tell the truth. Then let the insurance company fix it minus the deductible.
