    Default Grrr!!!

    Grrr....grrrr....grrrr..ggrrr..ggrrr!! Glanced a traffic cone this morning on the way to work, thanks to the way they'd been placed on a particular island. Essentially a blind left and then you hit a brick wall of cones on one of the lanes - unless you are prepared for it!

    Anyway, the result is that my bumper, front wing and looks like a bit of the drivers door are now scuffed! Looks like I'll be getting the t-cut out again tonight!

    I take it there is no point in complaining to the highways agency about poor placement of cones and lack of signage is there?!

    It would be like banging your head against a brick wall mate

    Gives you an excuse to get the polish out, hope it all polishes out, sounds as though it will though mate.

    No point in complaining, as you hit it (you could always have stopped or avoided it!). They may charge you for any damage to their property.

    Must be one of them days because I reversed into one of them stupid green box collection things for bottles and cans!

    I reverse out of my parking space into a small cul-de-sac and I must have zombied into the car because I never saw it behind my car. Stuck it in reverse, checked all mirrors (or so I thought!) stuck it in reverse and about half way I heard a *scrape* got out and scraped the back bumper!

    Not bad but enough to annoy me because I know it's there!

    Not quite as bad as what i did with my old 1.8 sxi:

    Reversed to turn in a country lane in fog, at 2am in the morning. Checked all mirrors, went to reverse, then next thing "bang..scraaaape".

    Wondered what the hell it was, got out to look, and seen one of them stupid big boulders on the edge of someones drive. Scratched all the rear side of the bumper, but luckily never cracked it....somehow!

    (And all that, cos id been banging a chick, and needed to get her home fairly quickly)

    ...and guess what... they've changed the layout of the cones today so that one of the two lanes leading up to the cone brick wall, is now slowly closed off - meaning yesterday can't be repeated. think it might be worth a complaint now!
