    Default Look what happened to me pride & joy!

    I got up early to wash the car as it was a little dirty, however it was pizzing it down so I went to the shops instead. Got back to the car to find this

    Like the mottled finish

    caused by this tw@t



    Of course when he eventually got back to his car he denied all knowledge, his darling wife gave me a mouth full claiming I'd scratched the car somewhere else & set it up!, even called the local police as she was giving so much abuse, but they were toooo busy. Eventually got his details. As you can see my car was a little mucky so I couldn't tell if it was dinged or not, the stupid idiot started rubbing the muck off with his fingers at one point causing more scratches luckily it t-cutted almost fully out & somehow he didn't crease the door skin at all.

    I've still got very slight scratches, any of you expert polishers got any tips

    Real ****ter that one. Luckily its not too deep. Sorry no advice on polishing.

    I am sure from your photgraphs you can measure the height of his marks against your car...

    You should have given his wife a mouthfull...

    I always park as far away as possible from any other car in a super market , but you always come out to find a car parked next to yours even though there are hundereds of empty parking spaces around !!

    One that did rile me up was a service call i did and the bloke opened his door taking a chunk out of my passenger door rubbing strip only for him to look at me and say " oh well its only a vectra" that boiled my p155 so i replyed "oh well at least its only my car" didnt get an appology , so opened my door onto his ...git

    Half the problem is in this country we have stupid narrow parking bays only just about wide enough for a small car.

    In the USA the bays are well spaced and very wide and people respect other peoples cars etc.

    This is so common and i think the biggest culprits are the fat assed woman who bash your doors at the supermarket while they are getting the snotty nosed kids out of the car, then they scratch it further with their handbags etc.

    In the UK we need bays the size of those parent and child spacers but for everybody.

    So partly to blame is the retail shops and supermarkets for squeezing as many spaces as they can in one area.

    I did that the other week. Parked well away from anyone else, to return & find a pick up truck one side & a people carrier the other. They were both so damn close I had to get in through the tail gate!

    I couldn't belive it (and yes i was jumping up & down like Vitor Meldrew!) but I couldn't be arsed to hang around & have a row.
