Just when you think all is going well and your so organized, something happens to make you realize your never far from trouble…
Today while driving home from work, my car bonnet blew up and smashed the windscreen of my car.
It gave me such a shock, in fact I think I am only just beginning to realize just how lucky I was.
My car insurance people were very helpful and had a recovery wagon out to me with in an hour.
While waiting for this recovery wagon what amazed me most was the total un patience of other drivers.They speeded past flashing their lights and sounding there horns which just made my situation even worse.
Even more amazing was that a police car even went passed and made no attempt to stop and see if I was ok….. says a lot about our police force today !!
The driver of the recovery wagon , which came from Tears Recovery in Sutton Bridge,was fantastic and went out of his way to drop me at home, which was much appreciated as how I would have got home I don’t know.
After spending over an hour trying to sort out the insurance procedure and how I got my courtesy car, which I desperately need living where I live.
This article was bought to my attention.
The situation then changed and I got very angry thinking that Renault knew about this fault and I had never been informed.
Needless to say Renault now want my car so they can asses the situation, I only agreed to let them have it when they said they would pay for me to have a hire car
They will have to act fast though if they want it, as the holding garage is due to take my car to the repair garage first thing in the morning.Which they have to do before they will let me have a courtesy car.
I will not be able to relax now till I have some car keys in my hand.
Having no car all ready means….
I was unable to collect my son from his friends house, luckily they understood and are keeping him for another night and will then return him home.
I was also unable to collect my other son from work, so he had too beg for a lift home.
I have also had to book a taxi to get me to work tomorrow at a cost of Â£20, how I will get home I am not quite sure.
In the new year I am going to change my car and I was really thinking about having another Renault Clio but this incident could change my mind.
Please keep fingers and toes crossed that a miracle happens tomorrow and I end up with a car… any car will do.
If I don’t it could well ruin my Christmas. 🙁
