Here in my car
I was travelling back from Canterbury on Friday in my car, when a car coming from the opposite direction got a little too close to my car and clipped my wingmirror. Ok, nothing too bad except when you calculate that I was travelling at 30mph and they were travelling at 30mph, then that was a 60mph impact on my wingmirror which proceeded to smash it into my window and obliterate it, covering the inside of my car with glass (and me as well).
It produced a very large BANG and the glass came flying at me and I believe the words to come out of my mouth were ?fucking hell!?. I was shocked and pulled over, but the other car was gone and didn?t stop. In all honesty I think they thought it was only the wingmirror and that no damage was done? but they would be wrong. I had several cuts on my hand from the glass and had to drive the remaining 15 miles without a window which made me very cold.
Once home, I parked the car up the drive and taped a black bag over the window, and was slightly annoyed.
In the morning Autoglass came out and I payed £50 for the priviledge as an excess on my insurance, but they were very good and came out about 30 minutes after I called them!
In instances like this I always try and look on the bright side and came to the conclusion that I didn?t go out on Friday Night and only bought a crate of lager for a party on Saturday, so in effect that £50 was what I saved by not spending the usual amount on a weekend. kinda.
