Evening all, was in a bit of a tizz the other day, having had some bad news and was trying to park in the town square.
Saw a space that I thought I should be able to get in to, even though one of the cars was parked badly, but of course, no, I couldn't. ended up scraping a car (and of course mine) went round, found somewhere else to park.
Jumped out, didn't really look at the damage to the other car, but wrote a note of apology, added my name & phone number & tucked it under the windscreen wiper.
The lady owner duly phoned, thanked me for my honesty and said she would get an estimate for the repair, and email it to me.
Mr P was able to deal with the scratches on my car with a bit of T Cut and some elbow grease. The estimate to sort out the scratch to her car is £260 !
No point putting it through my insurance, as my excess is only £200
I have asked her to get another quote/estimate, but somehow have the feeling that the next one might be even higher, as she has indicated that the place she got the first quote from are very reputable!
PS Anyone who responds to the question in the OP saying that yes, I AM an idiot for trying to get into the space will be awarded the "stating the bleeding obvious" medal, and also branded as a not nice person.
