    Dont know if this is in the right place but here goes, sorry if it goes on a bit.
    Nov 30, parked my Vauxhall omega outside my house, sun afternoon and all was well, :Smile: 4:30 pm neighbour knocks on door and says your car has been hit by another car and they have stopped down the road,i inspect my car and walk down the road to find a 64 year old woman sitting in the passenger seat of the car, is it your car I hit she asked, yes I replied, sorry she said :Sad: is there anyone I can ring to help you out I asked, no she replied I am on my own. We exchanged details, She said then that she must move her car as it was in a bus stop,:RollEyes: I said you cannot move it as the front wheel and suspension was broken:Doh: but she did and the car gave up the ghost, now in the middle of the road, main A road:Eeek: By this time my wife returned, why are you helping her, she has just hit your car she exclaimed:shout: and promptly went to Bingo:RollEyes: I now had this woman, who by the way suffers from parkinsons disease and walks with the aid of sticks, freezing cold and in a panic, so I took her in to my house for a cup of tea.:thumb:, now had to ring police for help, :Doh: one turned up and aked what happened, then asked to see if we could move her car from the road, we cant move this can we he said, no I replied thats why i rang you, to be continued

    locker doors continued

    continued
    O.k he said i will ring my mate, so another cop turns up and he says we cannot move it as well so they rang breakdown truck and disappeared now I was left with two damaged cars and one ill woman, unwilling to just put her in a taxi I decided to take her home in the RV which was parked over the road, managed to push/ shove her up the steps and belted her into the suicide seat, before We had got 10 yards she asked if we could stop in a supermarket as she had no bread or milk in the house, by now it was 6:30 on Sunday evening, but Spar shop was open. managed to get her out of the bus, get her shopping and stuff her back in bus and took her home, where starts another tale, but back to the point, as omega was likely to be written off I purchased a nice citroen berlingo in order to use it as a toad, but, at 6am today a coach, not an rv passed my house and one of the luggage lift up luggage doors had either been left open or had popped open, he passed all the other cars in the street but as mine was higher:Doh::Doh: smashed tailgate, windows e.t.c so the point of this story is if you have lift up locker doors on your rv, ensure they are securely closed before moving off:thumb:

    No not really, only two cars written off in 8 weeks, now, as things normally happen in threes, do I buy another one or move house, but even if I do move house will the curse of the three follow me:Doh::Doh:

    Hi Tony
    There is always a bright side , the bus could have hit the bosses car which was parked next to mine:RollEyes: then there would have been a problem:Eeek:
