Our little ten year old Honda Fit (Jazz elsewhere) seems to have a huge red and white target stuck to it and has been bashed whilst parked in the street so often that I've lost count.
The wing mirror fell off of its own accord a couple of years ago and I kept sticking it back on with duct tape, promising myself ( and her indoors) that I'd get around to doing a proper job eventually.
Well, I finally took the door to pieces a month ago and finally fixed it back into place as the factory had always intended and stood back to admire my handiwork feeling quite smug actually.
Next day and I mean the very next fucking day, Adriana was driving to the shops and a lunatic in a Merc flashed past her so close that he actually clipped the reunited wing mirror, completely destroying it. She was more stirred than shaken and absolutely furious that the car had been hit yet again, whilst I buried my face in my hands hating every card river within a 1000km radius.
