The Worst day
I've just had the worst day today, although I guess it could have been worse.
Firstly the car needs repairing - $400 - they have to get parts and have to wait until friday. Fine - can handle that one.
Second - car parked in a shared driveway on the side at my aunts place and her neighbour backs into my car parked at the side. (note plenty of room for him to get past as a courier van had just been in and out with no problems just minutes before).
Neighbour knocks on her tour swearing and yelling "did she have a "beep"ing visitor parked in the driveway as he had just backed into the car. Beep of course is - I'm sure you know what I mean - the F word.
Well the swearing the yelling continues - he not only does this but threatens etc. On the way out to look at the car - I said to my aunt to call the police because is manner was so abusive. He continues to swear at me - he is obviously in the wrong as he backed into my parked car. I wasn't even out there at the time. And all this he does in front of his children. Of course I was entirely at fault in his opinion. He refuses to give me his license number and details except for his name. I write down his number plate number - I know where he lives as he is my aunts neighbour.
I've never been sworn and threatened so much in my entire life. He left before police arrived, I went back inside and cryed my eyes out. I must say however, that I did stand up to him because I new he was totally in the wrong and I had insurance that would deal with him. Police arrived and took details and said they'd have a word to him over his abusive behavour and that the insurance company would sort the rest out.
Approx $900 of damage to my car. Mainly paint damage down from front tyre down the side which finished at the passenger door on drivers side. A fair distance to scratch down before he stopped. Panel beater said minimum 4 days to repair and more probably 5 days. Our insurance doesn't cover hire car so I think I've found a company that has curtosity car we can use.
All this - for something I'm not at fault for at all.
Before we left - he come back - yelling more abuse - followed us up the drive way when we went to get into my car. Honestly, if his abuse was any worse - I think he may have hit me or picked up something to smash my car up.
He has hurled abuse at my aunt - the told her "he is the neighbour from hell and that she might want to sell her house sooner rather than later to get away from him". I ended up ringing her after leaving to make sure she got back inside safely.
I just hope he doesn't do anything to her and leaves her alone. What a mess all this trouble and none of it my fault or my aunts.
My stomack felt like it was in knots and my heart was racing. I hope I don't ever run into this man ever again. I don't think I will be visiting my aunt again while I know he is living next door. Lucky, he is just renting and I hope he doesn't stay too long. The reason for his move to there was apprently a disagreement with another neighbour. I sure hope he moves on soon or the landlord kicks him out.
thanks for listening.
