Got distracted whilst trying to reverse the motorhome in my school car park by some pesky kids. Took my eye off the reversing camera briefly .......put a dent in the bumper of our P.E teachers car. Feeling very sad and silly. :(

Never mind the Teachers car, was the motorhome ok?

No, he wasn't in the car at the time. Very minor bump but it is a 14 plate car! He doesn't actually know yet as I reported it to our receptionist at school who has emailed him but he obviously hasn't checked his mail and hasn't noticed it as it is passenger side rear bumper. I couldn't leave a note as it was absolutely hammering down. Looks like an insurance job as it is a colour coded bumper. Poor bloke only passed his test in September so it is his first car car is I feel really terrible.

Accidents can happen to anyone. The main thing is no one was hurt, though your pocket might be a little.

After a minor dink, a wise older man told me,

So what it's only metal, no one got hurt, and that's why you pay all that insurance premium for, to cover accidents.
Just after my wife ripped the front of her dad's new to him car, caught it on the front fence while reversing.

Would not worry, that's just life, the ONLY sure way not to have an accident is to lock it away and park it up, the rest is just statistics

There needs to be a rule about that sort of thing :rofl:

I could have gone into spasms and shock with the amount of laugher that sprang forth from my loins ::bigsmile:

Love the first picture, but good job it was a boy bear!! :Eeek::Eeek:

I was going to shove a size 10 left black army issue up my butt and call myself Bootles, but I couldn't get anyone to take the picture and it nearly killed me taking a selfie :rofl::rofl:
