I learned at the weekend that I've had a car crash in the last two years that wasn't my fault. The only incidents I can recall were when I reversed into the fence on the car park at work and when a bloke drove into the back of me on the M60 at about 2mph (which is quite brisk for the M60). Neither resulted in a claim of any sort. The conversation went:
"Hi. My name is Viran from the ambulance chasing leech bunch of ******s legal group. How are you today?"
"Not great to be honest. I've had a very upset stomach. I've been ****ting like a new born baby" (I like to do this to put them off balance)
"Oh, erm, well, erm. I'm ringing about the car accident you had"
"Oh. The one in 1992 where I needed corrective surgery for facial injuries that went to court and everything?" (This is true)
"The one in 2004 when I crashed into the back of a man in a Ford Scorpio at low speed approaching a roundabout when my foot slipped off the clutch?" (also true, sadly)
"Ah, you must mean the one in 2010 when I reversed into a neighbour's car" (Also true)
"No, the one you had in the last two years"
"Can you be more specific on dates, because I'm struggling to remember that one"
"Our database shows that you have had an accident in the last two years"
"Where does your database get its information from?"
Sadly Viran decided to hang up at this point.
I have been know to just leave the phone and walk away leaving them to talk to themselves, pretend to be deaf, do Norman Collier impressions (ask your dad), tell them it's a stately home and I need 40 windows, tell them I want windows, and a conservatory, and an orangery, and will they send the bill to the council.
Auto Express - six issues for a quid. Offer must end soon (and then immediately start up again).
