Why does the shit always hit the honest guy

1 year ago i rolled my lux and i fixed it again for R40k

Then about 2 months ago my brother had a accident with my 5 series bmw so i had to sell my lux to repair the bmw that cost me R60k

Now 3 weeks ago i bought a nice 3 series bmw for my wife 2 weeks ago my wife crashed the 3 series bmw now the cost to repair is R50k

It looks like i am a bad luck magnet

Eish Hendrik! :wth: :eh: I feel for you 'big time'! :( It's not a lekker situation, but remain positive and everything will work out in time. Of course insurance is a good place to start being proactive. These 'little' life lessons make us stronger and wiser. All the best for your path forwards! :thumbup:
When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

I am high risk (young, unmarried etc.) and my insurance (2.7 Hilux only) is R600 p/m with R6000 excess for major repairs. I guess you know how many times you can pay that monthly premium with R50k!

I hope the bad luck stops soon!

Hendrick my simpathy with your situation!

I can relate to the doo-doo theory (although maybe not on the scale you are at!)

Last night while camping at Ou Skip after the Hilux event, someone threw/shot something across the picnic area where we were parked, and cracked my Hilux's windscreen! I made this lovely discovery this morning! How's that for ruining an otherwise excellent weekend!

3months back I had an hernia op and the access was 3k
Then my tyre supplier stole 53k from me
My laptop got stolen not specified on insurance 3k
3g was stolen with and account for it came 3.5k
Honda broke gearbox R3k
and i still have to pay my V6 convertion
I am taking the tyres of my bakkie to sort out a warranty on tyres
There were some more badluck but smaller amounts
and this was all in about 2 months
it never rains but it pours :lol:
