    Default Boss Borrowed my Car...

    Well working at the bottle shop on Australia day and the Boss needed to go grab some extra cartons of beer from another store. Lent him my car as his little excel would fit all of 1 carton in it.

    Hops in. Starts the car.. IN GEAR. (manual) Shoots forward and mounts a 40cm High concrete slab....



    Front bar is completely rooted.
    Holden wants $1300 for an unprimed, unfitted bar. Boss said he'd pay for the damages. But If I can find one cheaper from over U.K way I'd end up with a bit of coin in pocket for all the hassle.

    Hey matey, sorry to hear that. Now I know: never borrow my baby to boss

    Bumper looks destroyed and it's rather unable to fix. You should check some on ebay, that would be much cheaper than buying new original one.

    I'll just buy the copy from nicedeals.co.uk. Saves me basically $1000.

    At least your boss is doing the decent thing, he could have told you to claim on your insurance.
