I discovered today that some [insert obscenity here] has done a hit and run on me when the car has been left parked. The passenger side of my bumper dented, thoroughly scuffed and scratched, and is hanging loose. My car is built like a tank so it would have taken a fair amount of force to do that kind of damage, there is no possible way that the person responsible couldn't have noticed or that their car got off undamaged. So now I'm stuck with a demerit point. Mum has kindly offered to pick up the $500 excess, for which I am very grateful, but I'm feeling very dejected and unimpressed with the human animal at the moment. Originally I thought it must have happened in a shopping centre carpark, but the thought occurred that it may have happened when the boy borrowed it for uni, which at least gives me specific time and place to hunt up security footage. I'm taking her for a quote tomorrow morning.

BTW for any overseas visitors who don't get the reference in the title of this post, the phrase originated in a phone directory ad and quickly became a popular Aussie colloquialism. Not sure if its used anywhere else. Probably not.

why are you losing a demerit point if it wasn't your fault? *confused*

Anyway, not sure if you got my text, my phone credit is being stupid, keeps telling me I have like $40 worth of credit available, yet when I try to call it tells me I have insufficient credit, so not sure if my text actually went through, but games tonight is fine, Cass, Dave and Brett are coming over between 7:00 and 7:30. If there's any games you wanna bring over, bring them all I have is a deck of cards. Will need to start building up my games collection now!

Anyway, I shall see you tonight.

Hi mummy! *hugs*

losing the point off my insurance rating not my licence, because I don't know who did it, otherwise it would come off the other persons insurance.
