Excuse length of post, I live next door to an institute of dire learning. The students (aside from generally being "students") are usually found at lunch time in my back yard trying to find somewhere to partake in the inhalation of illegal substances. Annoying but it's teenagers. And they are all petrified of dogs. Oh and the college are expanding. The local football club is building an academy on the same site. Then the Council decide they are going to start building houses on the field opposite that is meant to be a space for kids to play but is actually the overflow car park for the college. At the same time. Did I mention it's a one way street? Had to pop out for server parts today, when I got back I went to park in the residents Parking area and the builders for the college had taken over my car park. It's pretty tight out there so I had to reverse back down a narrowing ally way between my property and the college... As I'm doing this some bloody moron decided to push a girl he was talking to... Right into the path of my car. I saw her (and heard the bloody car beeping) on the camera and reflex/panic kicked in and I dodged her as I hit the brakes. Car skids on gravel, Wall meets car, Car kisses wall, Car now has a nasty case of brick herpies (brick rash, paint scraped off the rear passenger corner, grazed, is FUBAR) Girl was fine but in shocked, head was next to my wheel, wanted to hit the kid but he was a child, barely 16 I reckon and easily as petrified as the girl. I would prefer to not have to claim on my insurance for the repair work, so do any of you have a firm you could suggest to repair big reds poor grazed paint work? Some sort of scratch specialists or the like? I refuse to leave the poor car in this condition but my pockets arnt bottemless! Also, any of you with kids that age - was the green cross code dropped from the circulum and I missed it happening?
