White Van Man

Post by tim leech » Tue Jul 25, 2006 9:09 pm

Bloody white van pulled in next to my newly painted Gti at the petrol station, clearly there wasnt enough room for his van and my car in a narrow space, but! the fat slob opened the door against the rear bumper then proceeded to squeeze his oversized bulk through the gap pushing the door repeatedly against the bumper removng a nice round circle of paint! I watched him do this from the kiosk window. I went out and had a go at him but he denied it until i pointed out the silver paint on his door coinciding with the lack of it on my car and that the teller and I had watched him do it! :evil:

I said just because its a old car you dont care do you, wouldnt do that with a brand new BMW I expect

Sorry mate he said and drove off. So now I have a shiny new bumper with a scuff on, and his vane well its not his so what does he care.

WANKER!

Did you not follow him home and s**t in his slippers? Thats what I usually do.

I'd have asked for some money towards the repair.

He'll probably be on CCTV. Ask for his number and report him.

Bast***

Reminds me of the time, at a Surrey country fair, a woman parked her new Audi next to my 7-year old Fiat Uno turbo and her kid opened a door onto it, leaving a nice big dink. When challenged, she basically said 'old car what does it matter"!

After she'd trailed off with her Aryan brats, he had a f***ing big dink in her Audi, believe me.

Don't let them get away with it!

Have to admit I've done that too phillip,

When i had the CX CX Turbo 1 some 'person' in a volvo got out and whacked his door off my rubbing strip and took a chunk off it, i was standing behind my car waiting to get in, when i challenged him he simply said "well its an old banger isnt it" so when he had left i accidentally booted his door.

not big or clever and it doenst make you the better person, but you feel sooooo much better :-)

He drove off and to be honest as its only a small mark I didnt bother, its a case of his word against mine and I cant be doing with the hassle, insurance claims are so long winded and complicated, just annoys me people have no respect for others property these days. I never leave the Sd1 unattended as I know some goon would reverse into it or something. :shock:

Not a White Van Man - but I rather upset one of my patients yesterday when I didnt give them a Methadone 'script - I vame back to my car to find it had been egged and the hubcaps nicked.
Still, it could have been worse, the silly b1nt could have put the windows through.

They were Geniune Citroen Blingo Hupbcaps - anyway got them back this morning as the person in Q had chucked them into one of the gardens of a house near where I was parked - returned unscathed this morning and a quick session down the jet wash saw the car egg free once more so no real harm done.

Thats good news then. I will have to touch my bumper as I cant afford to have it painted again.

When I went to local cinema last year someone dented and scratched my TGE with their brand new Range Rover...Im afraid to say I lost it and keyed the side of said Range Rover. :oops:

on the revenge theme....once got nearly squashed into the offside curb of a dual carriageway by some totally oblivious wanker who hadn't seen that I was overtaking him and the vehicle in front of him and proceeded to try and kill me ( I was on my M/bike at the time). Stopped at the set of traffic lights to remonstrate with him to find that I was getting the ignorance bit.....he didn't ignore my size 12 m/cycle boot as it dented his two offside doors to a large degree......I then exited stage left .....what a great feeling......at the time I really felt that I was lucky to be alive though.

I think all of us who have ridden bikes for any real time can sympathise with this one, we all have had similar 'didnt see you' idiots try and kill us.

Im with you though, boot his door in, reminder to look :-)

I was once on a works aprillia scooter doing some drop offs and found a C15 from Central Auto supplies was trying to kill me, so i booted the door and nerfed his mirror, aprillia wasnt registered to me and I dint care about it :-)
