He is the type who likes a lot of drink and can be very dim-witted sometimes.
He was down in Glasgow visiting his family last weekend and got the train to Inverness then was getting the bus from Inverness to Dornoch but he fell asleep on the bus and woke up in Golspie (10 miles north of Dornoch). As he had spent all his money, he only had the option of hitching back to Dornoch and it was at about 5pm-ish. Just coming out of the 30mph zone but still in the street lights, a line of cars started approaching and he kept walking with his back to the traffic. 6 cars passed with no lift but there was one more he could hear. Now, he was on the very edge of the road and had his thumb out and guess what.... the 7th car hit his arm. He did a ballerina style flying leap into the ditch, smashed the windscreen with his arm and knocked the wing mirror off. Lucky escape. The woman driving got out of the car and went over all apologetic.
No problem he said, I am just trying to get home. The passenger in the car was on the phone to the police, reporting the accident and they came out and took my mate to the hospital (100 yards up the road!!!) where the doctors said he had a hairline fracture in his arm and should take it easy for a few days.
On Wednesday, the husband of the woman driving came into our work with an envelope for my mate and inside was a letter and an invoice. The letter was saying that the car was booked in for repair and that could he please pay the garage directly for the damage! Also included was a 'home typed' invoice from a vx main dealer with the damage repairs to be carried out. It was on plain paper and only had a price with heading 'parts' and a heading of 'labour' with another price. Total cost was £770 or thereabouts! lmao The invoice was obviously not from the vx dealer. To make a bit more controversy, it was a company car...
So, she ran him over, damaged her company car and has sent him a bill for the full cost of repairs. Can you believe that??!! lmao Bare-faced cheek!!
