Is honesty always the best policy?

I have had a hectic few days, finished working backstage on "Our House", then onto "Tom and Viv", tried to get packed for Turkey while simultaneously attempting to clean my house and mow the lawn (I mean moss and dandelions). And in the middle of all that  I had to book Roxy into the car hospital.
One morning I went out to find her left rump all scratched and dented.

I suppose it could have been worse, it could have been mine!
It must have happened one of the nights I was away with "Tom and Viv". Obviously someone ran//backed into her while parking, saw there was no one around and sped off. I only noticed it a few days later.
As I will be away for the next ten days this is the perfect time to get her fixed.
I rang my nice car repair man and explained my predicament.
"Did you get the name of the person who did it?" he asked, wondering who was going to shoulder the bill.
"Nope," I replied.
"B^*#"$d", he retorted."You must be raging."
Actually I can't really get annoyed. If it had been me who had been the culprit, if I had dented someone's car in a dark carpark with no witnesses or CCTV footage, would I be honest enough to own up?
All I can say is that......I honestly don't know if I would!
