    I wish I couldve clicked two options. Call the cops and take a baseball bat to their garage door. 😀

    If I knew their number, I would call them and be like “WTF!?”  After I made sure the hubby was ok.  Then, I’d probably call the cops. 

    I can’t believe someone wouldn’t stop, totally redic!

    Is he ok?!?!  Did they damage the motorcycle?  Did they stop because they saw they’d hit him, or because they were putting the car in drive to drive away?  Do you share a common driveway?  Sorry for all the questions, I realize they are not related to the question you asked, but I am trying to understand how this happened.

    If your husband is injured or there is damage to the vehicle you will probably need a police report for insurance reasons.  That being said, sometimes police don’t respond to hit and runs (or at least here they don’t).  However, in this case you know exactly who hit him, where they live, etc.  Whether or not the report is necessary depends on how you want to resolve this situation.

    Oh geez!  I can’t imagine that happening!  I assume he’s all right?!  I guess I would call the cops because I don’t think people should get away with that sort of thing but on the other hand I don’t want them to make my life miserable either! 

    Ugh.  I can’t imagine hitting someone (much less my neighbor!!!) and just driving away!  Do they think you’ll forget about it by the time they get home or something!? 

    Ok.  I take the “on the other hand” back.  Call the cops.  They’re obviously crappy neighbors to start with!

    Wait-a-second… the neighbor was aware that he’d hit a PERSON, and he just kept driving?  That’s bananas! 

    I assume you’re Fiance is alright?  If he were injured I’d obviously say call the cops… and I’d probably break some of his property so the baseball bat option would still be in play.  But seriously, I’d wait for my neighbor to get back home and I’d lose my mind on him. Who does that?

    What?!?!? They hit a person?! Are they stupid?!?!?!

    Call the cops and make sure he’s ok! I’d make sure he didn’t get up, stayed laying down, and made sure he kept talking to me. Assuming he got hit, not just like, bumped into or something.

    What spurred this? I’m sort of confused, no lie.

    You know what? you have to share a driveway with these people so you don’t want to do anything crazy. HOWEVER – WTF? Who does that? If it was a little tap he could have rolled his window down and said, My bad! i’m sorry man, everything ok? And move on. I would honestly call the cops and report it, and have them come and talk to them, but not press charges. And if they acted crazy, then i WOULD press charges haha.

    I’d call the cops for sure. Those neighbors are no friends of yours.

    WHOA.

     That is the most ridiculous thing i’ve ever heard of! yeah i agree, if it was a tap it’s like “hey you ok?” and call it a day, but to make eye contact, THEN hit him?! craziness.

    I wonder if his argument will be something like about how your Fiance was crouched with his bike and didn’t see him and thought he hit a trash can or something?!

    People are crazy.

    Call the cops! I am glad that he is fine, was there much damage to the bike? If there was then I would DEFINATELY call the cops. The fact that they didn’t even stop or anything is nuts.
