    Default Is it today, or something else!

    Following on from someone else's post. Is it in the air today ? ? ?

    I was travelling down my local dual carriageway this morning, minding my own business, thinking, hell got to get out of the right hand lane and make the left turn slip road onto M1 south at J28 from A38 Mansfield side (just if anyone knows it).

    Anyway, traffic in front of me stopped, so likewise I did too. looked in rear view mirror to see black Volvo looming down at me.

    Luckily there is a wide verge between carriageway and centre barrier. Lucky as he managed to get his car between me and the barrier up to about the middle of the rear door with the front of his bonnet. (hope that picture makes sense)

    All I feel is a gentle rocking of the car as he stops.
    So I pull in front of him and switch o n the Hazards. Get's out does I and inspects the 'damage' - 'I don't think I hit you' says he. 'I felt a bit of a rocking' says I.

    I couldn't see anything on mine, so has a look at his near side and notices a small scratch on his wheel arch above the wheel. Goes back to mine and noticed a very slight mark, rubbed it with finger and it all but disappeared.

    He says 'don't know what happened, but I was away some where else just then'

    So I bid him good day and left the scene, thinking next time concentrate on the road.


    Should I be bothered? Is Karma more important than a tiny, tiny mark?

    Hopefully some one will give me the benefit today and not try to screw me over...

    Dont bother.

    Small Tiny Mark can turn into a nasty respray.

    Small Tiny Mark can turn into a nasty paperwork battle.

    Small Tiny Mark not worth it... think of it as a stone chip... **** happens !!

    EDIT: ... and pat yourself on the back for not kicking his head in for driving without due care and attention....

    You may have saved another Ste, he might have been away with the fairies at school out time otherwise with real danger to life.

    Good work Agent Ste, I'll put a memo in at HQ to commend you're unselfish actions.
