arseh*les who dent cars and then drive off!!!!!!!!!

My pride and joy now has a dent by its badge on the boot lid..... no signs of paint chipping though or scuffing.

The theory is that it was the council refuse collectors who achieved the remodeling by clouting it with a wheely bin. (My girlfriend heard a clout during their collections this morning.)

But the total disrespect for someone elses property that this can happen in the first place! I am livid..... livid that this happened, livid that my faith in human nature has again been tested and ****ing livid that i've got to shell out for a repair that I shouldn't need to do! (If anyone has any ideas on this one by the way let me know...)

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

I can park my Gtv right at the empty end of a car park and i can guarantee that some r soul will park next to it in a 4x4 or people carrier and happily put pin dents down the sides
I once lost it completely when i was sitting in the other half Barchetta when some obnoxious prat openened up the door chipping the o/s door on the Barchetta.
I had a word and basicly told to f off as he strolled away.
Before i drove away i was so mad i kicked the drivers door in on his Merc E class.
I shouldn't have done it, but did i feel better.

Every time i see an Alfa Romeo, i raise my hat.

Whenever i see the front of a Gtv i become sexually aroused.

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

I had exactly the same thing on Wednesday. I'm really carefull where I park, but I have a dent on the front wing and some scratches. Mrs Snapper also has damage and the cars were parked one behind the other. Obviously, no one bothered to leave a note.

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

Are these sort of dents easy to remove? It looks like my 166 has had a few doors opened into it throughout its life and while most people don't even notice them they really get to me.

We have companies over here called Dents Away and Dent Wizard, amongst others. They are a mobile service and specialise in removing minor dents without the need for the car to go into the body shop. You probably have something similar.

Cheers! I'll have a look into it. It would be handy and hopefully not too expensive.

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

Sorry to hear about this. Nothing gets me in a worse mood than finding a mark on my car.

It is usually the elderly who do it, that and mothers with kids. I have watched these two groups of people literally throw doors open onto other cars without any respect. You can see in their faces that they are actually having a strop because your car is "in there way" so they won't even feel guilty.

Even worse though, esspecially true to old people is not putting shopping trollys back. I have seen them just give the trollys a shove in any direction, irrelevant of what is in the way. All because they can't be arsed to push it about 100 yards.

This is why I always park about 10 miles from everyone else and over two spaces (I had someone give me verbal abuse for doing it once which wa funny). It is not fool proof though as you are then singling yourself out to the other pricks out there who like to kick and scratch nice cars.

I also give verbal abuse (not swearing but I make sure they know they are wrong and everyone around them sees it) to anyone I see dumping trollys. Even if they are old and decripid!

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

I parked up at my missus house a while back. Right next to her old man's silver 156 V6 (they look cool on the drive together)

Her nan was over and getting into the silver car and we were both leaving to go out down the road. She opened the rear passenger door and it hit my car with this horrendous knock I was sat in the drivers seat really angry. I got out to look at my door and unbelieveable she had hit the chrome on the passenger door handle. There wasn't a mark!! Phewww.... Then I looked at the other car door and there was a nice mark on the edge.

She seemed oblivious to doing anything.

"SAY YOUNG FELLOW,"
I hope you you return to this post,and read the following.
I take a dim view of the words "OLD PEOPLE'.
It may be that I ONE OF THEM,(OLD).
But you are I feel a little out of order,there are cases,when a persons of all ages and gender struggle with their trollys, some due to the fact that they have missbehaving off spring,some because
They cannot be bothered,this applies to all ages and gender.
I will be a little cheeky and ask, " Do you make a habit of asking any person with empty,loaded trolly, if they require a hand?"
Please do not take offence, but generalization can offend people.
John the luddite.


P.S. walk aleast 12miles a week over mountain and dale,complete with backpack.
Have always managed to struggle with both loaded and empty trolly.

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

Colinjb phone the council and ask for a claim form - they will send you one out and all you do is fill it in and send it back to them - say that someone saw them do it. Their insurers then decide if to pay out or not - I work for a council and I know our refuse dept pay out quite a bit of money for claims even when its just one persons word against another - its worth a try you lose nothing

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

Had to pull in to a petrol station the other night to take a call on the phone...wasn't in the way of anyone but a Rover 75 pulled up slightly behind and to the right. Driver got out and dinged the nearside door with his...no apology so got out and thanked him. Seemed quite shocked that someone was in the car but still no apology...wouln't mind accidents happen its just the bad manners I can't stand. Not worth fighting about so pulled in front of him for fuel.....Its amazing how long it takes to put £1.50 in your tank if you really try Heh Heh thank God for forecourt cameras tho otherwise I think he would have torn my head off.

Sorry to hear that.

The phenomenon of shopping-center-car-park-dings is something that a lot of people take for granted, I hear. This I can't understand with the best of my will. Slamming doors or trolleys into other cars and not caring? How? It should bloody well be possible to avoid that every time, as well as leaving as note if an accident happens... I have ZERO sympathy and understanding for it. It's not something to be accepted

I have recently taken up the practice of occypying two spaces in shopping center car parks. It helps.

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

heres one foryou anyone who`s been to meadowhall sheffield will understand.

went xmas shopping with a friend came back to see a note on his window then scratch on front wing heres what the note said.

I put this note on your window because people saw it happen and they think i`m leaving my details but they know nothing and you`ll never find out who did it.

Funny thing is my friend works for south yorks police and boy was he annoyed we walked straight to customer service flashed his badge asked for security to obtain tape due to accident now noted has a hit and run and last thing i heard tape is being fully check they already know make/model/colour just trying to enhance tape for reg number.

who ever it was are in for a huge shock soon he`s like a bull in a china shop he wants who ever did it.

Re: F**king arseh*les who dent cars and then ****** off!!!!!!!!!

That's appalling! I hope they catch the *******.

Incidentally, the scumbag that is currently the Norwegian prime minister did much the same thing. Only he didn't write a note, he just placed an old parking receipt under the unlucky fellas wiper because someone saw him and he wanted to make it look like he did the right thing... He did this in a labour party car a few days after his first stint as PM, and he later got elected again

Here is the article from the Norwegian paper Dagbladet.

A governement that thinks its fine and dandy for its officials to engage in the pettiest of crimes is disgusting. IMO such people should be banned ever holding any official position. Yes, yes, I know - they're politicians...
