well. We are currently being chauffered home to Leeds in a large breakdown truck with my car on the flat back in two pieces :shock:
After an extremely stressful morning we were setting off to boston hospital to see dad from the caravan site when I caught the front bumper in a stupid pipe thing that was at the side of an empty plot. The result? The whole front bumper flew up into the air and ripped off :shock:
I was doing around three mph reversing.
RAC came earlier and checked it. Not safe to drive, so we've been waiting for the tow truck since around half one.. Got to us half am hour ago..
I'm so tired and stressed but more than owt I'm a pillock lol
I will attempt to attach photo later..
I need my bed :roll:

    I shouldn't laugh because being carless is no joke when one is also, to all intents and purposes, legless but, nevertheless, welcome to the Society of Pillocks. We have a large and varied membership.

    The pipe caught it right at the weakspot... Just my luck.. :roll:
    I am happy that nobody was hurt although my brother said he's gonna sue me for whiplash... Lol
    I told him if he did he'd then have to sue me for two black eyes :lol:

    Julia, I totally agree lol...

    Fowls.. They have changed the rules so that even if you've made a claim you can still be legible for the good condition bonus.. :D


    I've got a nice peugeot 3008 for now. The garage says it will probably be next week some time next week before mine is ready, fine by me lol

    You didn't mean to do that did you Tony????

    Yep you are right about the good claim bonus. As long as it comes back in good condition you qualify for the bonus.

    Well it never rains but it pours, or something to that effect- you did a good job in mangling up your car, Tony :shock: Never mind, as long as the people inside were OK, the rest is only a bit of metal which can be mended.
