    Just about to get in a parking space to pick up the wife and little one and SMASH, wtf, VW T5 reversed straight into me, nearly tipped me over. You ought to see the B post. Passenger door won't open unless you yank on it, why would you reverse in a f***ing big van, on a car park, when it would have taken 10 seconds longer to go the right way round and you could see where you were going, rant over, this is what we pay insurance for.

    Ouch could of been worse you could have had your wife and little one in the car at the time, but at least you were there when it happened so he couldnt drive off

    Yes, very fortunate, that no one was in the passenger side, l had gone to get fuel, it's only a car, the B post is a right mess on it!! That's the wife's Mercedes bust and the Ford wrecked, wanted to get a few supplies and fuel, thought mid morning would be a good time to go !!!l sometimes think l am jinxed.

    Such a familiar feeling - Almost like life has returned to normal.
    But wait, there's next week.

    sorry Sideways..
    Well that was a sh!t happening,,,
    I have been driving vans for near 40 years ... Always reverse into a space if you have to, or in double bays, drive though..
    when you need to leave a space, just look out and drive ...
    reverse in, think of it as 'quick escape' ... Fire up and look left/right drive out ... its just so basic ..
    parking up nose-in is just lazy bastard and stupid ...

    It's a Titanium X 16 plate 45k on the clock, l value it at £10,000,but no doubt they will low ball me, it took me ages to find one with the full leather, intelligent headlights, yeah they are that clever they dip when they reflect back off catseyes, then you can't see where the road is, it's foo barred, hopefully got a courtesy car coming tomorrow.

    Best of it was, because he reversed into me, he said it was my fault, what a ***CK, as Clockwork Orange said reverse in, and he didn't hit me at a couple of miles an hour!!!

    I did actually amend my posting, I really wanted to massage his face, especially with his attitude, so I did let him know that he was a complete ******, bleep, ******, bleep, **** head, etc etc, if he had been observant he possibly would have caused only a little damage, now l cant get through to his insurance company, they are saying they are all working from home, but they don't have phones, what a joke!!!!

    That game can be worse than the damage and repair itself. In case they don't respond and you need to sue, you should find out where the court clerk lives.
