    And so I go and buy another GTV 3.0 yesterday.......

    just for some elderly motherfuckingcocksuckingsonofawhore in a Mondeo to scrape the side of the GTV whilst pulling out of the parking next to me today, and then drive off...... I am so livid. I dont normally worry about cars but I love Alfas and this old girl was in decent shape for her years. Not spectacular but just a good honest 10 year old motor. The scrape on the door I could fix by picking up a door from a scrappie. Its the rear flank scrape that makes me so angry. It is pretty deep and you cant get to the back of the panel to fix it due to the double skin. Now every time I look out the door I see the dented panel and I get wound up all over again.

    I hope the old fart chokes on his dentures tonight......

    No details of the other driver/vehicle? Most stores and car parks have a CCTV system these days so you could get lucky...

    oh and on the good news front - i saw some gizmo on wheeler dealers where you spot weld tags onto the skin and then pull the dent out (if it's not too bad) for use in situations like yours - might need a blow over respray after though but probably cheaper than the alternatives...
    From now on if my comment can be expressed in the form of a tired internet meme or picture.
    So it shall be done.

    definitely track the piss soaked old crumbly down, get them prosecuted for leaving the scene of an accident. with luck they'll have their license taken away or their insurance will increase to be too much for their pension to bear and that'll be another ancient moving obstacle to frustrate and infuriate the rest of us on a sunday morning off the road.

    Should he have said "Urine soaked old tosser" instead?

    as opposed to 'elderly motherfuckingcocksuckingsonofawhore' ?

    They both seem appropriate in this context.

    If find it just as likely to have been caused by some feckless mother and her unruly kids, or even a youngster just passed their test, in fact it just seems that driving standards have fallen so low in this country that every time you park a vehicle in a public place you take a risk that you will return to find it damaged.

    I've been on the road over 30 years and only twice ever come into contact with another vehicle - both were elderly drivers, both were going excessively slowly, both neither looked nor signalled before performing manoeuvres I could not react in time to avoid.

    Nappy-soaking old noddies are thick on the ground where I live, and I see such fuckwittery every day - doodling around at 30mph on 60mph roads during rush-hour getting in everyone's way even though they've got all day to get to Kommodes-R-Us and Adult Diaper Warehouse - and I find it perplexing that since they have VAST experience of driving, and cars have got MUCH easier and safer to drive, they respond by going ever-slower and doing ever-more stupid or selfish things...

    When I rule the World, the old will be retested regularly every 5 years from 65 - 75, 2 years until 80, then annually until 85 when they will be euthenased. They will also be issued with special red number plates that licence them only to use the roads at off-peak times. Any coffin-dodgers found out and about during peak time will be executed at the roadside and left there as a warning to others.

    Oh I speak in the sure and certain knowledge that I may be no more than a few years/months/days away from my first non-arousal-related damp patch, rest assured!
