grr someone just backed into my ute!!!

This dumb b*tch backed into the front of my ute just then. Someone was reverse parking in front of this lady (who I was behind) and she all of a sudden decided they didn’t have enough room so she just started backing up (obviously without even looking in her rear view) and just smashed into the front of my car. And I couldn’t find my horn quick enough! I had my foot hard on the brake (coz there was another car right behind me and i didn't want to hit them) and my car was still thrown backwards with the force. But what really annoyed me was that she tried to blame the person reverse parking in front of us!! And I was like ‘hello! The general rule is you look in your mirror before you start reversing!’.

Anyway there was minimal damage but she just pissed me off because she was one of those ppl who blame anything else apart from herself. So it was the reverse parkers fault and my fault for not getting out of the way or honking my horn quick enough. People need to take responsibility for their actions! ARRGH and now I have even more paint scratched off my car. No dents though as far as I can see, apart from in the number plate. It was just lucky she didn’t have her tow ball on, and that the front of the ute is built like it is.

Sorry this is a bit of a pointless thread but i need to share my annoyance with someone! if anyone else wants to complain about bad drivers they have encountered feel free!

I was in Albany last week and no offence but half the people around there are asleep especially when driving.

Re: grr someone just backed into my ute!!!

I know the feeling..........
December 28th, 16.00 hrs, a fruitcake decided that the rear left corner of his
EB sedan looked MUCH better implanted in the right front guard of my XD ute.
How his tow bar didn't damage the front Simmons mag wheel, I have no idea.

Best part was, "Oh, I don't have insurance", right after he'd just finished popping his glass eye out..............

I suppose he's lucky my ute wasn't a young kid on a pushbike or something similar.....

So now it's off to the panel beaters for quotes (I've been away on holidays), and next to try and get the $$$$ from him to get it fixed.

Am I impressed? Not bloody likely.

My XF 3 on the tree ute is ALWAYS stuck in third......
