I aint very materialistic. To me functional and practical are more important that style and form.
In need of an updated vehicle I got a reasonable deal on a ex demo vehicle. it's nice and ticks all my functional and practical boxes but also has style and form.
I've taken out a lease and hope to keep it in reasonable nick so the resale value at least covers the balloon payment at the end and hopefully have a touch left over.
Anyway I parked at a restaurant for breakfast. normally i would park away from the main parking to keep away from other vehicles. however today i thought to park a little closer as the carpark was empty.
while eating away 2 large cars parked either side of my car and i am thinking "why would they do that?" i see the back door open and pop back a little - oh did they just hit my car? man i was a little pissed. so i walk over and the guy is holding his car door with a hand on my car door. did he hit my car?
"man, did you need to park so close?"
"what's ur problem?"
"the car park is empty and you parked right beside me. and parked so close. why would you do that?"
i had a peek and i couldnt see any damage to my car so i thought fuck i am being anal.
"its a free country. i can park where i like." yah good point i concede.
"sorry man i just got the car and i thought you hit it."
his elderly mother got out the back seat - not a kid - oh maybe i am over reacting. anyway, what's the point of blasting this guy?
"sorry i am a little anxious. i should have parked somewhere else." which is what i should have done.
but today, i notice there is a small mark on the paintwork. what a fucking liar - he did hit my car!
i sort of wished i kept my old shit bomb. but i am glad i have the newer vehicle. it is just a car afterall and there are hundreds of people who have no consideration or just do things by accident.
