On Shit Days: Sure, They Could Be Worse, I Guess…

….worse how, I’m not exactly sure, but yeah – those are the platitudes people feed you when something kak has happened – “it could be worse…”.

I walked out of a mall this morning to discover my car – picture above – still where I parked it – but not in the same condition it was in, when I locked it and walked on my merry way into the shops to exchange a pair of shoes I bought last week.

No one was around, no one saw anything; not one of the car guards or security guards knew anything about what had happened to my car. Obviously. Just my freakin’ luck.

Fuck. My fiancé was unbelievably calm about it, his legendary temper didn’t even make a hint of an appearance.

And me? I’m just sad. My poor mommy car has been through so much. I don’t really blame whoever pranged into my car and just drove off – after all – what would you have done if it was you?

So yeah. That was *my* day. Please tell me yours was better?

    Personally if it had been me I would have left a note, I once did a runner and it came back to bite me, badly. I will always take ownership now.
    Sorry your day has been kak.

    Not to defend the person, but I have hit someone’s car before and not had a single way to let them know it was me. There was no damage or anything, but not even a car guard around to let the person know on my behalf. But seriously, how can someone not notice that they have done that to your car? I hope karma comes back to bite them and hard!

    I am sorry that the person didn’t own up 🙁 they least they could do was apologise.

    But hey, this is where we live, I guess.

    Hope tomorrow turns out better, and that it won’t cost a fortune to get fixed.

    I won’t say it could have been worse. Because that would just be lame. All kinds of lame. And it could not have been.

    OH hun…I’m so sorry luv. Had my car repaired recently…so I can totally sympathise! Really sorry! I’ve come to the decision that the really kak days are there to make the better days even more Asshum, so one shouldn’t take them for granted! I wish chronic diarrhea on the person who dinged-and-ditched you though…sending hugs and virtual “Life-Ups”.

    I had a very GOOD day. But I’ll tell you about it at our next playdate. I know you love your car, but it is only a car and at least you were safe (and not responsible) 🙂

    Aaah, I am sorry about your car!

    The same thing happened to me when I took my daughter to the hospital for her 6 week check up – I came back to find the car I loved suddenly had a large dent and scratches (and no one had seen who had dinged it and then disappeared).

    It ruins your whole week 🙁

    Same thing happened to my boyfriend yesterday… but the damage was more severe and now he has no sideview mirror … Sigh….

  11. That Sucks. My car has been broken into 3 times in 1 year when I still lived in SA. In the past 8 years since I lived in the UAE my car has been broken into 0 times. The police don’t take kindly to criminals here.
