During the winter time, I was driving to college (of the "rushing, but following the speed limit" kind), and very early on I had to take a left turn after seeing that no cars were crossing by. As I turned left, my car did a 360 degree spin (as I had forgotten about the ice), hit a road marker (which may actually still be bent. I need to check), and hit the curb, which thankfully prevented me from spinning off the road. After I realized the vehicle was stopped, I went on my way as if nothing had happened, and managed to get to class on time.
Later that day, my mom was driving home, saw a car bender on the side of the road, and wondered who it belonged to. Her question got answered very quickly when she drove into the driveway, and saw the side of my car. And yes, we did drive over to that part of the road and picked it up.
On a different day, I also drove into a snow pile on the college campus after temporarily loosing control of my car. I just hit the reverse, drove out, and went off to find a parking spot as if it was a normal day.
