An old chap (early 70's) in the next village backed into his neighbours car hardly touching it. Pulled forward a metre and got out to check for damage. A bit of a job to tell as the neighbours car
was old and tatty but eyeing up the shape and position of the two cars deduced that the crack in the rear light lens must be his doing. The lens was complete, just cracked, so he went round and confessed.
They had been friends for years so it was all amenable, the neighbour saying, "Thats no bother, soon have that fixed."
A week later he came round with a quote for a complete new light unit, rear bumper panel and a rear end respray. "Do you want to pay this now or shall I go through your insurance?" The elderly chap didn't
have the money so he gave his insurance details.
The neighbour moved house without saying a word 3 weeks later so the old chap never saw if the car ever got done. He's still paying increased premiums and loss of no claims.
