    Jesus H fucking christ some people really are utter cunts.
    Just had an ultra irritating karen in a D3 reverse into the front of the merc.  I saw it happen.  I wasn't in the car at the time.  Cue an utter barrage of shit from her about "you parked too close"  "I didn't see you"  "you're in an awkward location" yadda yadda.  And when I tell her that she's done damage (which she has) she gets all twattish with me, and starts telling me I'm being agressive.  She then gets shitty with me when she gives me her phone number and I drop call her phone to make sure it's her and to give her my number.  "oh, don't you believe me??!?!!!?"  Actually, no, I don't.  Plus this is the easiest way to give you my number.
    Then when I give her my name "well that's typical.. that's my ex's name"  What the utter fuck has that got to do with it?
    No apology for hitting the front of my car.  A properly nasty arrogant attitude, and she even said "what else do you want,.. I'm in a hurry".
    Fuck you, you utter waste of blood and organs.
    And breathe!

    The overall issue here seems to be a lot of people with a VAST amount of experience driving just about anything and everything over many decades, trying to give advice to someone with none of that experience and allowing said novice to benefit from their errors and experience.
    ... and that advice being utterly ignored in preference to their own plans.  You can lead a horse to water, etc...
    All I'll say is that I wish I'd had this level of genunely useful advice available when I started driving.  As it happens, I didn't do too badly, but I am sure I would have done a lot better if this sort of forum had been available in 1993.  Like all teenagers/early 20's, I thought I knew everything.  Actually I knew practically nothing.

    well, she's going to get a rather large surprise.  If she'd been reasonable and apologetic, I'd have offered to fit a second-hand bumper at cost.  Now, she's getting a quote from mercedes for a brand new bumper and their labour to fit.  And two other quotes from people I know who run bodyshops.  If she sees change from £1k for this she'll be lucky.  She won't like that, but tough shit.  If she ignores me, I'll just engage the police and claim direct from her insurer.  Utter cowbag.

    The cost for a bumper and fitting from Mercedes is going to be eye-watering enough for her...
    She was even trying to pretend she knew what she was talking about, saying "it can't have been me, your number plate isn't broken".
    "The number plate is clear PVC plastic and fairly flexible.  The bumper is ABS which is more brittle, so it's no surprise the number plate is not broken but the bumper is."
    That's the point at which she realised she was screwed and started getting even more aggressive.
    I might take the bumper off tomorrow and see what other damage has been done.

    Because the route you are taking is headed for disaster and you can't see it.  Many people here can, hence the advice, guidance and help that has been offered.  It's all been offered on the basis of trying to help you avoid that disaster, as no-one here wants to see you end up in a situation that could have been avoided.
     
    I'd never want advise from close friends and loved ones... mad buffons on the internet who buy the most stupid vehicles they can?  Absolutely.

    I can’t stand people like that, utter cunts. Sorry to hear you had to put up with that mate.
    I think I wrote a while back about a similar spat I had with a bloke who hit the landy whilst parking. He was adamant he didn’t hit it despite me watching him, and got quite angry. I left him to fuck off, and then when I left I also didn’t hit his car.
