I was reversing into a tight space in a parallel-parking scenario today and it was pretty close to the limit space I can get our large car into. I edged very slowly backwards but just kissed the bumper of the other car and realised I wasn't likely to finish the parking. Several cars were waiting to get past so I gave up and parked around the corner and started to walk. Next think I knew this dude draws up asking me if that is my car. I say it is and he starts off with "you just ******* well hit my car and drove off!" Me: "I didn't "hit" it but merely touched it very gently, I'm sure there's no damage" Him: "That's not the point, you couldn't know that without getting out" Me: "Well I can because I know how soft the touch was" Him: "Oh you're some ******** crash expert are you?" Me: "No I've just got common sense, let me take a look" - walk around the back of the car. No damage. Even the dirt on the bumper wasn't marked. Me: "There's no damage like I said" Him: "I'm disappointed in human nature. People like you make me sick" Me: "Look, fuck you mate. It's not damaged. What's yours fucking problem?" He drives off in the direction of my car around the corner so I think I better walk back and make sure he's not doing anything stupid. He turns around and comes back up the road and opens his window. By this point I'm pissed off so I glare through he window and say "What?!" Him: "I was parked there near the funeral directors to arrange my dad's funeral and I didn't need to dealing with a wanker like you" Me: "Oh. Right. Listen..." Him: "....I'm not f****** listening to you you ****" Drives off So I'm left with feelings of annoyance mixed with guilt. If I thought I'd damaged his car I'd stop, check and if it was leave a note. I've done this before. But on the other hand I can see his point of view. And of course had I known he was arranging a funeral I would have backed down instead of getting angry with his insults. Bad person, badly handled, justified? What would you have done and said?
