Muppet’ is a good description of the person that has done this to your car!
I disagree but using the correct word will either be censored or get me banned! ;)

My sympathies. I was just about to say "Muppet" is a much too polite term for the perpetrator, but scm got there before me.

You need to consult the Urban Dictionary https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Muppet

I’d say these two definitions from it are quite appropriate and I think GARETH would agree ;) .........

'Muppet'
A right useless f*ckwit!

That is awful, some don't respect any others persons possessions and don't have the decency to stick around. Is it your street you were parked in? Have you asked anyone if they saw anything? We had a front fence taken out once and asked neighbours who said they had seen a car driving fast down the road but hadn't seen them hit the fence. Not sure if it was partial plate or not but the police were able to find the car and it had a big dent where it had hit the fence - turned out to be one of my mates brother hooning down the road.

Unbelievable, how can the person that caused that damage sleep at night. I hope you get it repaired promptly.

I have always reckoned that 25% of the population are selfish, ignorant or stupid. It has nothing to do with age, background, intelligence or education as I've come across people with Oxbridge degrees etc. who this applies to just the same. They were born R soles and will always be.

For example, my wife was getting out of her car at Sainsbury's a few years back and a RAV4 with an old couple in it came into the car park and took the side of a parked car out! After a brief argument in the car, they started to drive off but other shoppers surrounded the car and stopped them. My wife went into the supermarket with the reg. number of the damaged car so the owner could be found. Apparently the offenders were not even a little apologetic and were more disgruntled at having to sort the mess they'd caused!

Thats awful. With it being aluminium, it's gonna be a bit of a complicated fix. Insurance will cover it though

Gutted to see this Gareth - hope all goes smoothly with the claim.

Street parking is a nightmare. I've had 2 minor dents/scuffs put on mine from other cars whilst parked on the street here in London. The absolute worst part of one was that they did leave a fake number, obviously felt the need to put on the act for anyone who saw...
