You could write a country song with that story.

Yikes, I hope you have a better day tomorrow!

Sorry to hear of your day Tom.Sometimes it happens like that with one thing leading to another.Yesterday my friend was clearing the gutter of the house when his extension ladders fell sideways and dented the wing and bonnet of my 156.

Re: Today i crashed my car, lost my phone, caught speed and failed Uni

Not in the same league at all, but an illustration.

The other day:
Bought new monitor becuase thought old one was broken - continued to not work
Tomtom fell off windscreen and broke
Forgot I was parked next to a jutting out kerb in a car park and drove over it, possibly damaging car

The very next day:
Sorted out monitor with a bit of fiddling. Also saw a way to probably sort out the old one too.
Got TomTom replaced by shop with surprising lack of bother
Remembered to check sill of car (I'd refused to when I did it, because there was nothing I could do, and it'd just make me feel bad) - it was fine
Got info from Paypal saying I could be refunded in a long-running dispute.


Obviously these are all minor things compared to yours, but it's amazing how things can turn around if you just keep on going

147V: Your day, to my sensibilities at least, seems worse than the original posters. Hope things take an upturn for you soon, and you're welcome to a virtual bearhug from me if it'll help.

Well, look at it this way - it gets it all out of the way. Now you're guaranteed nothing but good luck.

Re: Today i crashed my car, lost my phone, caught speed and failed Uni

Well the damage to the car is only going to cost about £200 so not as bad as i first expected, I left my mobile in the works van (although its now in york), and if i retake the module i failed and ge over 58% my overall grade for my second year will be 60%= 2-1. So kinda feeling better now
