Broken wing mirror.

I got in the car last night to get some cat food. It was only when I got to the top of the hill and tried to check my drivers wing mirror I realised I couldn’t see behind me. I pulled over and saw that the mirror was hanging off. I couldn’t see the glass so drove home….

The mirror was on the road but broken…it doesn’t help that I have to park on the road, its not the first time it’s been hit. Seven years bad luck?

I will have to try and get it fixed, but last night I taped everything back together as well as I could. I won’t claim on our insurance because the car is very old and it might be impossible to get the parts. My neighbours car was written off because it was slightly damaged. I can’t afford to lose it and replace it, I don’t have the money.

Sorry to moan about this. Its worth poking on YouTube for fixes. My mirror is a bit too damaged to do them and I don’t have the skills…

A strange call

sketch-1564951965056

Someone just phoned. I never answer unknown numbers, but then a text message came through saying I had hit someone’s wing mirror when I was driving and that I had then stopped and left my number on a note on the persons car. He said his car was not damaged and I could forget trying to claim for my wing mirror off him?

I texted back saying I did not know anything about it, and that I would ring the police.

The caller responded by admitting that the number he had contained 12 digits, one of which was blurry but he had tried my number anyway.

The whole thing is very strange. My wing mirror was damaged last week while my car was parked up. It was parked with the drivers side wing mirror against the pavement. I have not hit anyone and certainly if I had I would have stopped and sorted it out. I have never left a note on a car as I have never needed to.

What bothers me is it seems strange that a wing mirror is involved. It sounds like a scam. I’m considering blocking the number. I will keep the texts and report it to the police if there is any other strange communications.

Any thoughts?
