Insurance claim

(viewed 1445 times)
Bookmark and Share
I backed into the corner of this woman's hedge last Friday.
She insisted on filling out an insurance claim form.
It's spring! It'll grow back!
We have a bonus system at work, a few quid if you get through the year with no culpable damage, only a token really.
Up to this hedge I'd been four years without a scratch. 500,000 dent-free km's.
Never mind eh.

Is it below the belt to make a comment about what an arse?

(Come on, someone had to say it)

The hedge should file a grievance on her for trimming it then!

What exactly is she going to claim for anyway? A repair?

I had no idea you could get bush insurance! Looks like it needs seriously cutting back anyway, there will hardly be any path left soon. At least you missed the sign.

Bad luck.

Did she come out of her house in that strange position or is she going in for a whiplash claim as well or was she in the hedge at the time and was caught short and was unable to wipe?

She was trying to get out of the way of the photo but I was quicker.
I gallantly suppressed the massive urge to make any comments at all about a neatly trimmed bush being more attractive, or that I was sorry for rubbing up against her bush with my rear-end.
None of that.
I just filled out the form and got out. Will be interesting to see what the claim says. Wouldn't surprise me if she tries for a complete garden make-over.

Paddington says:

A clear cut case of encroachment onto the highway by this house holder.
So, no encroachment, no incident.
However, if the lady is a member of the local ruling Green Party,you are dead.

JokerXL says:

I think you have an XL-ent point there Paddington!
But it really wouldn't surprise me if we actually didn't hear any more about this. It's not worth persuing, internationally, you'd think.

Geez, the snowplow took out two of my peony shrubs last winter and I didn't even complain! Definitely a tempest in a teapot.

If you are going to lose your careful driver bonus, next time you are down that way, make it worth while by driving through the garden..

Might as well get hung for a sheep as a lamb, as they used to say.
