Its official, most people are ***ts
You spend days, weeks, even months looking for the right car, you spend money on gas and train tickets to go and see those cars and you spend lots of time researching the car you want to buy. Then, when the Moon is aligned with Uranus and the dandelions are shaking hands with the squirrels, the car you will eventually buy comes up for sale. And thus starts your relationship.
Id like to think that when buying a car, what ever make or model, that in some small way its bought with a little passion, the person buying it prefers it over something else, which makes the purchase an exiting and rewarding one.
So with this in mind and knowing that there are many people out there who take pride in their property and take care not to damage it, or take care not to damage other people’s property with it, it raises a question…
WHY THE FCUK CAN’T PEOPLE TAKE CARE WHEN THEY OPEN THEIR CAR DOORS AND NOT USE MY CAR AS A FCUKING BUMP-STOP!! OR AT THE VERY LEAST HAVE THE DECENCY TO ADMIT THEY HAVE PUT ANOTHER DENT IN THE CAR WHEN I CONFRONT THEM!!!
I spent 6 hours on Saturday cleaning the car, I even spent 2 hours using a clay bar on it, it was such hard work but was well worth it, I don’t think the car came out of the factory as clean as it was on Saturday.
But then I made the mistake of going out to actually enjoy myself on Sunday, and when coming back to the car I caught the turd who was parked next to me as he examined the silver dent he made with his silver Ford Focus. A dent that , 12 hours earlier, wasn’t there.
I know there isn’t much I can do, the guy denied any wrong doing and subsequently tried to blame me for not parking properly. In a car park that was practically empty and parking the furthest away from the cinema and restaurant, this guy decided to come and park next to me, there where rows up on rows up on rows of empty spaces, but-he-had-to-park-next-to-me.
In the last year alone, I’ve given nearly £150 to 3 people whose cars I’ve accidently hit with my door to put towards dent removal. One occasion I waited 40 minutes for the owner to come back and on another I left my number on the screen.
I'm not after a medal or anything like that, but surely I can’t be the only person to be like that….
Anyway, thanks for reading, I'm off to buy paint stripper and a pack of balloons…
