Unhappy AArrrrrrghhh......Do I cry???????

Is it manly to cry??????????

My wife has just rang to tell me she's reversed the focus cabrio into a bloody skip!!!! I haven't seen the damage yet but she say's it's 'not that bad'.

How bad can it be?????? The car is not even 8 weeks old!!!!!!!!

Will post pics of the damage when i can.....I'm sure you guys across the pond will want to wallow with me...(NOT)!

Of course we will, I've destroyed 2 cars piece by piece so far. And ....by the way....what's a skip? Is it like a curb I guessing. Not like the boat (skip) that first came to mind.
If its a curb it can't be that bad
