Tis But A Scratch by DanVzare Tis But A Scratch by DanVzare
Check out the official website for the latest 20 Quid Amusements comic strip!

I can't be the only one who has noticed people reacting like this to their car being scratched?

Maybe it's because I don't have a car, but it looks like they're overreacting to me. The kind of reaction someone has over seeing a scratch on their car, is roughly equivalent to the reaction someone would have to waking up with one of their arms missing.

I guess the upside to this overreaction to car scratches, is that people also see it as being the ultimate revenge. Forget murder, keying someone's car will apparently hurt a lot more.


Also, a little off-topic here. But I'd like to thank everyone who leaves comments on my comics. SkylaComics, vindurza, Blondbraid, ToddNTheShiningSword, MCPZR, and anyone else I've missed. You guys are what keep me motivated.

Hey np!

This reminds me of a recent article about a scratched Lotus: www.roadandtrack.com/car-cultu…

And here I thought I was exaggerating at least a little bit when I made this comic!

Thanks for that, I needed a good laugh. :D

To be fair, the lacquer is a form of protective layer on the car that prevents it from rusting and corroding, and any openings in the lacquer can lead to pretty bad damages over time if it isn't repaired.

That is true, and is something I've heard before, and can definitely understand and agree with.
People still seem to overreact a little bit to me though. :shrug:

It's accurate in the UK as well.
I think it's a global thing.
