    Default Car Park Door 'Dings'..

    Will people ever stop with this? Had to park in a public car park this morning, so chose the spot next to shiney clean BMW thinking i'll be safe. Just moved it to find a nice new ding to my drivers door, with matching scratch on the 206 cc now parked next to me. So now I have 3 of these beauties on one door alone.

    Last time this happened, with a BIG scratch, the co-incidence was that the offending car suddenly had a flat tyre, spooky eh.

    This time, I've left a note which reads:

    "Thanks for scratching my car, how very ignorant, but hey - we were all brought up differently". Thought provoking?

    Think I may do up some A4 sheets saying "please be careful" and put them in my windows every time I park up somewhere.

    I give up with this

    I was thinking of running a couple of sheets through the laminator to put in my windows because i've got lots of marks on my doors too it's hardly worth having them touched up, it will only happen again.

    It looks bad on a light coloured car because the "bump strips" are black under the paint and stand out loads

    yup, I have 3 as well...
    Now I always look for parking spaces next to flower beds, and other object where people cannot park. I always park the furthest away in the supermarket carpark. Yet no Matter HOW empty the carpark is, I'd put a £10 note that some r-tard in tatty ol' metro park next to me.... Always, and I REALLY hate it, it drives me nuts!!!

    Cheers.

    ...sounds just like me mate, as you say...you can park at the far end of Tesco car park and guaranteed to come out with a 4x4 parked next to you!

    Yep, you and me both. If anyone wants to argue I'll show them round my car so they can see all the knocks that are not down to me!

    I had this yesterday, came out of a restaurant, after having a lovely lunch with the family, to find a woman with a rather large " rear end " sitting on my bonnet talking on her mobile, I wanted to But obviously that was out of the question, noticing my rising anger levels and knowing my short fuse,my wife done that wonderful thing that only women can do, gave her "THE LOOK OF DEATH" and said "CAN I HELP YOU" to which she quickly responded with an appology and moved away quickly.

    Three cheers for all the wives and girlfriends out there, who don't really give a hoot about how clean the car is, but know how important they are to us.
