Please think about what you write before posting. we have a broad range of members from all age groups and we want it to stay like that.Its generally the old people who are nearly dead, and jealous that their own lives have come to nothing.
You have to just pity them.
He has been causing offence on the other forum. So the old, those north of Watford gap do not matter now.I think Clever Dicky has gotten the message - an apology would be nice but his absence says a lot...
I daresay it was said without thought....just like opening a car door...
This thread started off about damage to another's car due to inconsiderate people. These same people were then berated in various posts and as clever dicky says various forms of violence were then intimated.
Consideration runs both ways. Parking across two bays to protect your own car is pretty inconsiderate in my book. It prevents someone else using a space who is just as entitled to park as you. Yes your car may get scratched by some moron out there but if you are that bothered don't use a car park. If we all adopt that tactic then 50% of the parking bays would be useless.
I think anyone who lets a door fly into another persons car is a moron. There are far too many people who don't car about anyone but themselves. But some of the reactions to what after all is paint damage are frightening.
What we think we would like to do and what we actually do are usually poles apart..I have often thought about letting a tyre down ( about 10 seconds work with my Schraeder key ) which would cause no damage but some inconvenience , along with a note on their windscreen telling them a little more care on their part would have avoided this . ( never actually did it though )
Thoughts of all kinds of revenge did pass through my mind in the heat of the moment,especially after their comment about its only an old car, but, in the end common sense prevailled and I left, the only cctv cameras were near the store entrance, so its very doubtful if they would have picked anything up anyway, it was just a case of momentary thoughtlesness on the other persons part, and by my speaking to them I hope they might be more careful in future.I would certainly have asked for his insurance details - had he declined , the police would have been summoned .
No CCTV in the car park , perchance ?
Otherwise , a good tactic is to wait until they have gone inside and let their tyres down , followed by a hasty departure
Actually all the cars would be straddling the centre lines, we'd be in the same position except the end of each row would have half a space free...Parking across two bays to protect your own car is pretty inconsiderate in my book.
