I am annoyed again.
You see, I went down to the village and brought the dog into the library. But that’s not what annoyed me.
I then drove to the nearest bottle bank and disposed of a large [surprisingly large!] number of empty whiskey bottles. But that’s not what annoyed me.
I then drove back to the village and parked in my favourite spot. I did a bit of shopping. But that’s not what annoyed me.
Time then for a cuppa in the coffee shop where Penny was fussed over. My mug had just been placed in front of me when Herself phoned. She was too hot as I had closed the garden doors on the way out, and could I please go home and save her from over cooking. But that’s not what annoyed me. Surprisingly.
I pulled out onto the road to go home when a bloke jumped out in front of me, frantically waving his arms at me. I stopped.
“That van that was parked behind you scraped your car rather badly” says he. “he saw you getting into your car and immediately drove off. I photographed him”.
So he sent me the photographs he had taken and I took a photograph of the damage to my car.
I phoned the plods and gave them all the details.
I just hope they follow up on the registration number.
Now that’s what annoyed me.
N.B. I pulled over onto the double yellow lines to talk to the witness, before any smart arse points them out.
Yup, that's annoying. (what else is there to say?)
It's a lot more than annoying! Modern cars cost a fortune to repair, and I assume Grandad's Focus is new(ish). You only have to breathe on them and it cost hundreds, if not thousands of pounds to put right. That's not annoying that's a fucking disaster for us pensioners! I can't see that much in the photo, but something similar happened to my Mondeo last year, also while parked, and the bastard responsible also buggered off. It took out a parking sensor, damaged the rear bumper and trim. Cost of repairs: £2850.60!!!
How's that for 'annoying'????!!!
You have the registration of his van. That is sufficient to make a claim on your insurance isn't it? As you were obviously not at fault there should be no loss of NCB.
Welcome John. I did intend to get in touch with my insurance, but frankly it slipped my mind. I don't use the car that much and the damage is on the nearside so I don't notice it when I do get into the car. It's sixteen years old anyway, so the damage is hardly going to devalue it below scrap value?
