That car should obviously have been recalled. Get your warranty claim in without delay.

PS. Was it an orange truck? One of them drove into me, it's time we started to strike back.

Was too busy looking in the mirror while putting on my makeup and turned into an intersection too wide. Truck was fine, so am I. I'll just put a bit of bog in that dent and she'll be right.

You simply suck at driving.

I suppose we should be thankful you didn't hit a motorcycle, cyclist or pedestrian, But considering you didn't see a damn truck its only a matter of time until you don't see something else and cause an accident.

Yeah I do suck at driving. I almost hit a cyclist last week Friday. He just managed to swerve around me.

I should probably get a job that doesn't involve me driving for 40 hours a week.

This didn't happen too far away from Ellerslie actually.

What happened was the guy behind me was tailing me pretty close as I was slowing down to turn left, and I've been rear ended once by someone in a similar position. I have a bad habit now of watching my rear vision mirror too intently when taking a turn now and not paying attention in front of me. I misjudged the angle I needed to make the turn and didn't swing enough and just caught the back of a truck with the front of my car as I was completing the turn.

It looks ****ing mongrel but it's really only the panel and the bumper that need replacing. Gives me something to do at the weekend too!
