Isn’t it amazing how when you think life is getting a little easier it turns around and kicks you where it hurts?
To help us over this bad period Yvonne has been working a lot of shifts at a local restaurant and I said I would give her a lift over last night and then pick her up later. As my car was out on the drive I thought I might as well use it. The restaurant is only 10 mins away and about half way there a car went passed in the opposite direction.
Something hit the window screen making a 10p sized hole “oh gosh” said I (something like that) and we continued on to the restaurant.
Due to the size of the hole I knew it had to have been a large stone and on the way back home it started to spread. I phoned my insurance and the screen will cost me £50. This morning I went out and found I have a small dent and scrape on the bonnet where the object must have hit first. So now I need a new screen and some work done on the bonnet.
As most of you know I’m trying to sell the car and this is something I don’t really need. So a question for you …
Do I get the bonnet fixed and sprayed or leave it as is and know some money off the car?
Personally I would rather get it all sorted but I thought it worth asking you lot.
Indecently I reported it to the local police as I think the damage is too much for a stone and believe either someone in the car going the other way has thrown something out the window or maybe someone at the side of the road was chucking stuff at passing cars.
Just hope whoever it was stops doing it before someone gets injured.
