God hates my alfa

He spent all of last night picking up bits of debris and hurling them at my car.

The result is a nice 5 inch crack at the bottom of the windscreen. Thats 75 quid I'll never see again. Why is it always this time of year too? We're all skint as it is thanks to His birthday bash...

...in the words of Father Ted "I could go off you!"

Re: God hates my alfa

Yes, a few jars of left-over festive cheer will do the trick for now. To be honest there's been a scratch right in my field of view that's been annoying me since I got the car so at least that'll be sorted out now...every cloud and all that ;-)

I'm at the parent's in Sheffield at the moment but all my insurance docs are up in Leeds so I'll wait til I get home then give them a call. Hopfully I'll get it fixed without too much fuss.

Perhaps alfa ownership is a divine test of patience! I've got some ABS sensors en route somewhere between Italy and Yorkshire which I can only assume have been sent by pack horse! lol

Re: God hates my alfa

Well my beauty now has a shiney new windscreen courtesy of RAC autowindscreens however she's missing a 3sq in patch of laquer from the roof.

They left the car with 2 strips of masking tape holding the screen in which I removed along with a chunk of laquer. They then claimed that since it was I who removed the tape causing the damage they take no responsibility. Someone at head office is going recieve a strongly worded letter shortly.

As a slight aside what is God's favourite car? My girlfriends Ford Ka has never had so much as a flat tyre yet my alfa has been smited at nearly every opportunity. perhaps its a "first shall be last and last shall be first" thing or perhaps the GTV is a false idol. lol

Re: God hates my alfa

You have answered your own question Indiekid.

I'll summarise.

A minister and a priest (Ford Ka and Alfa or is it vice versa) are playing golf.

The minister goes first and when he misses the ball he lets out a curse " Oh Chxxxx,Ive missed again"
The priest chastises him and says you better watch your language or a bolt of lightning will come down from heaven and strike you dead.

The next hole the same things happens.Once again the priest chastises him.

At the third hole the same thing happens and before the priest can chatise him

a bolt of lighning comes down from heaven and strikes








































the priest and a voice from heaven says

"Oh Chxxxx Iv'e missed again.

So watch what you are saying indiekid.
