    another car door slammed into mine

    I took a look down the side of my car 2day and found that someone has opened there car door into mine . They where so generous about it they left some of there paint on the car as well. I dont inderstand how these people do it tho, i park my car away from others(specially rust buckets),i always make sure there is plenty of room for people to get out of there cars and when i have to park in tight spaces i always take note of the registration number. Sounds really sad i know. I have yet to catch anyone open there car door into mine but im not sure if i really want to be there when they do. I go from to in about 0.01 ov a second.

    Probably some fat waste of space trying to squeeze into a Fiat Cinque whatever piece of crap, that has to have the door wide open to get 1 arse cheek into the seat.

    Winds me up, I'd rather take 2 spaces and park over the middle white line

    i have two paint chips on my bump strip.... what it's there for i suppose but still annoying - no where near as annoying as a dent in the door though!

    thankfully my bump strip seems to be fulfilling it's job - i just stay well away from 4x4's in the car parks - people who drive them are normally erm... big boned shall we say and the doors are usually high enough to clear the bump strip so would ding the door skin

    it royally pi$$es me off when people do that, a friend at work had this done while he was sitting in his car and when he moaned at the stupid cow that did it all she said was "its only a car" :roll:
    i always try and park near the most expensive cars i can find, the owners usually want to make sure they dont damaged their cars so they make sure they dont hit yours, and dont park next to people carriers either as they usually full of kids that swing the door right open

    They're probably well upset when they come back and find an Astra parked in the 'expensive' part of the car park.

    I find if I park in the space away from all the others, were there is a whole row or 5 six spaces away from mine, theres always one that parks right next you. and knocks the door. Pisses me off a treat.
