Title: You are very lucky to be alive, said everyone
Post by: Nick on May 25, 2019, 03:42:51 PM
With the M25 blocked by an accident I slipped off down the A3 to cut across country to Brighton.

Tootling along at about 45-50 I saw the car ahead of me braking, so I gave the brakes a touch. Nothing happened  eeek:  Hit the brakes harder and all the wheels lockedskid, spun through 360 and then headed off the road down a wooded embankment and ended wedged against a tree about 30 feet from the main road.

All the windows exploded, front of the car smashed in, both front wings detached and bye bye wing mirrors.

I got out of the car and clambered up the bank to where a lorry and several cars had stopped.

The ambulances got there first, then the Fire Brigade and then the plod. 

They were pretty surprised (as was I) to discover that I had one teeny scratch with did not merit even a plaster.  Ambulance crew were very nice, though they remarked that my heart rate was a bit high  ::)

Everyone left, ambulance gave me a lift to Petersfield station with my luggage and, I gather, the RAC have now recovered the car to a depot in Fontwell.

Glad to be unscathed but otherwise fucking furious  Angry9:

I call the insurance company to find out where the car has been taken so I can go and get stuff out of it.

20 minutes on hold and then 20 more minutes while she tracks it down.

She informs me it is in a garage near Basingstoke  eeek:  and gives me their number and postcode. No answer on phone  Banghead

Then the RAC call and tell me it is in a garage near Arundel  and gives me their number and postcode. No answer on phone  cussing:

I am going with Arundel as it is closer and the pick up driver said that that was where he was taking it.

What a shambles  noooo:

His name is Ginger
He lives on the second floor
He lives upstairs from you
So I guess you've seen him before

If you hear something late at night
A noise that makes you go "Oh-Oh shite"
Just don't ask him what it was
Best off not knowing what it was
Just don't ask him what it was
