Just drove out to get some lunch. Driving down a two lane road this newish BMW comes towards me hogging most of the road. I slide to the left a little to avoid hitting him. He doesn't yield and *crack*, my wing mirror disintegrates! I stop dead and he just carries on!
Fuming, I pull a U turn and start to give chase. He sees me coming and pulls over. 3 asian chaps get out of the car - 2 of them laughing. I'm still not amused so I start to check for damage other than the mirror glass and luckily it appears to be just that. Then I go to his car and his casing has gone along with the mirror. He's come off worse.
I speak to the driver who doesn't speak a word of English and I can't even understand his name which I've asked him to write down for me. Then one of the other guys says it's his car. I ask him if the driver was insured and he says 'yeah, yeah of course'. I'm like OK so we don't need to involve the police then? He says no we'll sort it. I explain that I'm 100% certain that I didn't cause this and the reasons as to why and he doesn't have a problem with this. So I take his name and number and ring it whilst his mate goes up the road to retrieve his broken mirror casing. We agree that I'll call him to advise him of the cost of the replacement. We then leave - the other guys both laughing still!!
I mean wtf! I'll bet the driver wasn't insured! He couldn't even drive properly! Grrr! Off to the dealers to fork out 29.96 for a replacement mirror glass and then I'll call this guy and expect him to pay for his mate's mistake. Otherwise I've got the details and I'll be off down the cop shop!
