  • there is still decent people out there

    basically today i went to see the accountant cos its coming up to my 1st yr end and the tax bill needs discussing,so i jumped in the burg and off i went,parked in the village and went to see the accountant,meeting over went back to the car,jumped in,pressed the button and went back to work.

    an hr went by and the plod turned up at work and wanted to see me,but all they had was an envelope for me.i opened it up to find £250 and a note.the note read,

    as you were away from your very nice motor a lady bumped your car at the rear just as i was stood next to it,she looked as tho she didnt care,so as she got out i made out it was my car,told her that damage had been caused to the lower black valence and i wanted money for it,to which she wanted to know how much,so i phoned the dealer up after finding the number in the phone book in a near by shop,i phoned got a price and a quote for painting and fitting to which was roughly £200,i told the lady £250 and she went to the cash point and withdrew it,and off she went.as i didnt know you or the car from adam i took your reg and went to the local police station and they knew you and the car and said they can deliver it to you asap as you fix there car and needed to pay your bill anyway.hope you get this and you get your car fixed.

    no name or any thing,all i can say is what and absolute star he was and wish everybody was just like him,to go through all that trouble for mr knowbody and to even pass the money on was just amazing.

    what a guy

    the damage is a tiny crack which has gone back and not even noticable but for his troubles am gonna get it done.

    so people,good people are still out,few and far between but still about

    Lucky you!

    The last note left on one of my cars (Asda carpark) went a bit like this....

    " I've only left this note as people are watching and I've ran down the side of your car. This note makes people think I've left you my details. You and I of course know differently. Bye bye chump"
