frown When to confess/scratched the car

Well after 12500 ks I managed to scrape the spoiler twice today, both times on the drivers side. You can't see it from the front but it is pretty burred up underneath. Even though it is my car Hubby is very fanatical about it, do I tell him or do I just wait until he finds it and deny all responsibility or knowledge?

Fom personal experience only last week, my wife rang me to say she knocked the left mirror with a parked car while stuck beside a tram and was too scared to see if it was "serious". I came home expecting to see a broken mirror hanging loosely by the electrical wiring...basically couldn't find any damage at all. My suggestion as a "mere male" who can spot a shopping trolly scratch from 25 metres is admit it immediately and any "consequences" will be far less severe..in fact you may be surprised at the "lack" of negative response..
Good luck...

Just tell him, how else are you going to be able to explain it. And its not like you did it on purpose

Re: When to confess/scratched the car

Yeah, admit it...there's really nothing wrong with that. Though it's a really nice car, it's "just a car" afterall....get what I mean? No need to hide coz accidents happen.

Re: When to confess/scratched the car

yeah just tell him. who really cares in the end? it can be fixed anyway. nothing worse than when someone damages your car and doesnt tell you about it.

Haha problem solved, he just came home in a mighty hurry and backed his Pajero into the letter box. No real damage, other than the topped knocked off the brick letter box, perfect timing. Must have been the day for it.

Tell him and apologise with sex. I think I'd be happy with that
