Rant… SILLY BINT!
So I’m driving along at about 25mph, and this SILLY BINT decides to overtake 2 parked cars. I hit the curb trying to get out of her way but she smashed my wing mirror.
She stopped, so I reversed back to her where she accused me of going TOO FAST! Told me that she wasn’t “accepting responsibility”, and that you can EASILY get 2 cars through the gap!!! NOT WHEN YOU LEAVE A 4ft GAP YOU STUPID BINT!!!
So we exchange insurance details, and I spend HOURS on the phone to the insurance company because she repeatedly REFUSES to accept responsibility! I have to give a full statement, send off all the photos and my insurers then spend weeks arguing the toss with SILLY BINT’S insurers!!
THEN! Yesterday, I get a phonecall off HER DAD!!! Saying her insurance is going to go up to 800 quid and she’ll lose all of her 500 quid excess, so can I take it to a dealership and get it fixed for £150!!
No courtesy car or anything, he even suggested I could WAIT while they fixed it, only a COUPLE OF F*****G HOURS!!!!!!! Cheeky f*****r
I told him to sling his hook, she should learn to accept responsibility for her actions, and she should at least HAVE THE BALLS to ring me herself!!!!!
Am I being unreasonable??? This silly cow has tried EVERYTHING to blame me, shirk responsibility, and now it’s obvious she’s gonna get stung, she’s GETTING HER DAD TO TRY AND BAIL HER OUT!!!!!!!!
(soz, just needed to get that off my chest…. grrrrrrrrrrr)

Good going; capitals, swear filter avoidance, derogatory sexist language, but impact lessened by the apology at the end.
FWIW, blokes do this too – coming out of a narrow culdesac with Mrs Removed driving last week, a guy coming the other way tried to squeeze through a non-existent gap where a van was parked with two wheels on the pavement (his side of the road).
Mrs Removed managed to get two wheels onto the kerb and he just missed us. He screeched to a halt and began waving his arms around but he must have seen the colour of my face (a fetching balckish / red my wife tells me) as he roared off quick-smart…
I do wonder where we’d be if she’d borked the suspension going up on the kerb though – £££s worth off I imagine.Posted 5 years agoz1ppyMember
Nice rant, but you loose points for being far to concise and taking the time to show us the photo but do get an extra point from me for the wrong forum…
TBH I surprised you managed to get your insurers to agree it wasn’t your fault, normally they just seem to capitulate cause they simply can’t be bothered to spend money fighting, good man!Posted 5 years agojoao3v16Member
My opinion would be divided on this.
On the one hand, the human/compassionate part of me would be saying “fair enough if he’s willing to cover the cost to get it fixed privately, no need to involve the insurers, bit of a wait, but what the heck” etc etc
On the other hand … “it’s her own fault, let her suffer the consequences and maybe she’ll become a better/safer driver” etc etc
What to do ? …Posted 5 years agoneninjaMember
She is reaping her own karma.
Now it’s been progressed with the insurers she will have to record the accident on future insurance quotes which will increase her premium anyway.
If she’s keen to keep her premium lower and avoid paying the excess get a quote for the work but with an extra £150 for the inconvenience and cash up front. Win win that way. She learns an expensive lesson but slightly less expensive and you make some cash.Posted 5 years agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Good rant – random capitalisation, overuse of exclamation marks, innapropriate derogartory terms. 8/10
(yes, she is learning a hard lesson in life about accepting responsibility and sorting things out. Reasonable that it is sorted properly, and she as old enough to drive should also be old enough to take the responsibility to sort it – I wonder what she would have said if it was an injury, a cyclist or major damage to car? We had an issue many years back with an accident on a narrow lane – similar in that mrs_oab stopped, had damage from wall on nearside she was so close, the other car managed to skid full length of our car damaging every panel and only stopped 10′ beyond – and over the halfway of the road. But is was ‘our fault’ according to her and father when we went to insurers. We lived 500m away and had popped back to take pictures of skid marks, glass etc and had exact layout of road…)Posted 5 years ago
She had a … What’s the current PC term for a mentally deficient individual??… who was having some sort of panic attack in the car. AND she was smoking… Both situations were obviously distracting her.
If she’d held he hands up there and then, I’d have helped her fix it, but she’s just tried to avoid responsibility. Now she’s got nowhere to run, she wants to minimise the cost to her. Shes just a ****.
Unfortunately, no kittens, window lickers or bints were hurt in this incident.Posted 5 years agokimbersSubscriber
well you are 100% in the right, and itw as a good rant
although bint is indeed a bit of an unecessary term imo
i quite like the idea that hes willing to get it fixed privately
if only more people did this then life would be a lot simpler, as long as the works done properly i cant see that id have a problem with it
infact if it was me id get him to by the wing mirror fit it myself and charge hm for labour
after all wont your premiums be affected too?
as for the courtesy car thing im sure that your time isnt that precious that you could survive without a car for a few hours if your really desperate to get somewhere you could always cycle 😉Posted 5 years agonukeSubscriber
Good rant 😀 Personally I let him do it privately.
I had this about a month ago but it all turned out rather amicably…a white van man did exactly the same to me and took off my part of my wing mirror. He didn’t stop so I turned the car around and followed him. 3 miles up the road I caught up with him and got him to stop. Initally he gave the excuse that Shib got about wide enough gap but I pointed out it was my right of way and I’d call the police for him not stopping at scene of accident and he fortunately changed his tune. Turned out he owned a gargae 🙄 and he had a brand new wing mirror colour matched up and fitted for me in less than a week.Posted 5 years agobigyinnMember
If its any consolation, I had a similar incident and ended up with 5 points and £185 in fines, plus a visit to the magistrates court. So dont moan to me that you’re being inconvenienced etc!
*note to self always report to police and give insurance details, even if its clearly not your fault*Posted 5 years ago
