Some people dont give a s**t

I'm so angry at the moment. I took the lovely wife out to dinner tonight and while I was waiting at the door to enter the restaurant I watched this car backing out. This clown reverses back and sideswipes another parked car. I was going to approach him but though surely he will stop and look for the owner. No, he straightens up, stops beside the car looks over and then just drives off. I was lucky because that was where I was going to park my car (a 2 day old Laser with less than 100kms on it).

I took down his number plate and left my number as a witness on the car he hit. I hope the people do something about it, I'd love to see this guy get done for what he did. Things like this really annoy the hell out of me.

Same thing happened right in front of me back at my old job in North Sydney.. not being in the mood for turning a blind eye, I proceeded to confront the driver and "ensure" that he left his details to the unfortunate owner of the parked vehicle. I took his number plate and license details myself as well.

Size and having a bad day has it's advantages at times!

Same thing happened to my old man once, a truck backed into his car, but luckily there was a witness who happened to know the truck company and also took down the plate no. Now if everyone could be so helpful.......

Where are we headed in the big bad cities?
24 hr video record is where.

If you come out of a restuarant and your car has been vandalised or hit you ring up Big Bros Street Video Co and pay for a search to be done. Good business probably: the all the restaurants and other street businesses pay a levy for the service perhaps.

Or -even more electronically- your car ecu thing continually registers the bleeping electronic id emitted by all cars and especially the ones that approach within 1m or something.

I can beat that. I have just put my brand new GT front bar on my EB, (genuine ford part, took me ages to find) and this bloody woman driver in her mercedes decides to put the bike rack on the back of her car straight through it. 2 weeks old and i've been qouted 900-1000 to fix it. At least she's paying but she didn't even look in the first place.
Her excuse was that she was having an argument with her daughter. Her daughter would have been about five.

I think that would have put me in tears!

The trouble is, you just can't walk up and punch these type of people. Well, you could but then you are the one in the sh*t.

I don't have kids, but I would have thought that you don't argue with children, you tell them!
