Just had a bump in my car. Narrow street and we all slowed down to about 10mph but then as the car in front went to pull off again at a normal speed they suddenly slammed on and I went in to the back of them. He even knew he slammed on as he said when we got out.

Absolutely no damage whatsoever. Not a single chip or anything. I didn't think to take any photos Sad

He said nothing will probably come of it and was alright about it all but asked for my details anyway. Am I fucked? Like a moron I didn't get a contact number but I've found him on Facebook. Worth sending a message to say if there is any claims come to me first or just play the waiting game and hope he has a high excess so won't bother?

His excess is irrelevant as the claim would be against you. Fingers crossed he doesn't turn up in a neck brace giving the the big one about whiplash etc.

True that. I really hope not. He seemed a genuine cool guy about it all. But it's when he goes home to his wife and she starts forcing him to claim for this and that is when it all gets shitted up. Fingers crossed nothing comes of this.

If you're a guy that uses words like spezzato then everyone will probably be expecting it, you'll be fine.

Emigrating to the USA is nigh on impossible unless you are married to an American or you can get a job where they will sponsor your work visa/green card. Good luck.

I'm running out of wardrobe space, are there any decent hangers for storing multiple shirts on the one hanger?

Have recently had a big clear out and sold a leather jacket (sized medium) on eBay. Got a message from the buyer saying it was too big and more like an xL, can he return it for a refund (listing says no returns)

So I reply and say no, sorry. It's not my responsibility to make sure it fits you.

So I decline the refund/return request.

Now I've got s message from eBay, from thier money back guarantee address saying I should contact the buyer directly, do I want his details….but nothing else re: returns/refund.

Is there anything I should do? In the description I wrote 'It's a great fitting jacket and is typical of a medium size, fitting a 38" - 40" chest'

The tag size is medium….

He can't raise a case or pursue this further can he?

he's being a twat but ebay will end up making you accept the return most likely so might as well get it over and done with
