This gentleman really went out of his way to be kind and generous to perhaps the worst kind of female.

To think he spent so much of his time getting estimates for that person, only to learn the following day the witch – couldn’t find the letter ‘B’ – had her current phone number disconnected.

No, my good man, she will not call ICBC; she didn’t have any integrity from the moment she backed into your car.

What a way to learn a lesson!

Stu, I hope other readers take your advice:  be civil, but write down the plate number – after taking information from the instigator’s licence. Plate numbers may not always help, as it may be a rented car, or the person is using someone else’s car.

Shortly after moving to White Rock about eight years ago, I tried helping a young lady financially. I had no money and, since I’m in my 80s, her loans officer pushed me into taking out a mortgage on my property in order to get the $80,000 she and her partner needed.

Long story short, she walked away from the loan, though the funds had been used as a down payment on property.

Fortunately for me, after years of nightmares and insomnia worrying about the mortgage and only receiving minimal monthly payments from this person, the property was sold with the bank getting most of the proceeds.

I received most of the money due me, yet I am still out lawyers’ fees and monthly payments towards the principal and interest I took over.

This person moved out of White Rock and is living ‘scot free’ and drives a Mercedes convertible.

So much for being kind.

Ruth Carrier, White Rock
