What made your day a crap one??

Some old SOB in a pickup as large as a Tiger tank ignored the lane signals and he barreled into the left side of my car from the side at an oblique angle. Totaled the driver side front & rear doors. I hit my left temple on the driver side window and wrenched my back a tad. My head hurts I will add, but ambulance crew checked me out & said good to go. The other fellow has insurance and the Police officer did cite him. In the meantime my car looks like gypsies live in it. :mad:
Sorry to hear about that @Bogeyman , what's happening with the car then?

I can get a copy of the police report next week and then call his insurance to file a claim. The way the process works here is then I have to get at least two estimates and his insurance adjuster will probably want to look at it as well.

The stupid ol' fart tried to deny his guilt, but the officer was familiar with the intersection and nailed him dead to rights on it being his fault. Meanwhile, it is driveable, but looks like Hell on the left side. Of course, people in traffic grant you a wide berth when they see a car all banged up. :D ;)

Asking my Mrs to transfer £7000 pounds and she transferred it to someone else unknown....one digit wrong on my account number.

From what i read online, i might not be able to get it back.

Sickening to say the least......

Hopefully the recipient is honest enough to give it back, proper bummer!

That's not good @Aaron1983 , but I'm sure that the money is just hanging about somewhere, sort of mid air type of thing?
Even though she had one number out of place, she didn't enter a name which she would've had to have done to complete the transfer. So, incorrect A/C # and no name, they can't allocate the money to a specific person?
She did it over the phone and they say because she gave authorisation, by law it went to the correct person.

90% chance we lose it....

But as Blademonkey said, there are good people in this world. I really pray this is true in my case.

I feel sick

Sold my Moto Guzzi motorbike on E-Bay recently. Great. The bloke couldn't come up with the money and so all null and void now. Time wasted and now having to go through all the rigmarole of cancelling fees etc. Why bid, win and not have the money in place?

What a kicker! Make sure you put him on your ebay list of people you don't want bidding on any of your future sales, at least he won't be able to mess you around again. P.

B*stard. Unfortunately happens all too often, you get people chancing it hoping you'll drop the price for them after everything is confirmed.

Attended a meeting today, and met a former colleague. Not seen her for nearly 4 years. Turns out she has been seriously ill and nearly died. Felt bad as we had lost touch, and I wasnt there to support her when she was having it tough with her treatments :(

Having a good sale on the Bay and very pleased until.....started getting demands for my bank account details as apparently my account was invalid (as Bikerjohn knows it works fine) followed by a host of spoof PayPal emails. Poo
