General (General discussion, talk about anything.)
Been to hindley this morning to see the in-laws... On the way home called into Robin Park... Nightmare.. Couldn't get on for people queueing up for fast food at burger King and kentucky... Anyway her indoors nips into card factory for the upcoming essentials... I stay in car as it is persisting down... 20 mins later her indoors returns... And off we set off on the way home.... Turned onto montrose avenue norley Hall to hear a rumbling sound from the rear.... Oh no... Not a flat!! Yes... The preverbial pancake. After muttering several profanities... Park up and admire the cats and dogs raining down. Luckily when cleaning car last week "Shining like a diamond thread" I did check the spare so I knew it was okay. "Are you ringing Green Flag" her indoors suggests... Green xxxxxxxxxxx flag I say... I'll do it. Spare out jack at the ready.... "Are you going to sit there or get out and hold the brolly" enquires I.... "it's wet and cold" is her reply... More profanity... Doing beltin... Until 2 of the nuts will not budge for love nor money... More profanity... Then a nice young couple pull alongside... Need any help? Just two nuts won't budge I say... They park up and the nice young chap (appearance of a muscle bosun) takes said spanner and with a bit of brute force loosened the nuts... Had your weetabix says I... Thanked him and off he went... Spare put on and still a bit of a drowned rat got back in the car and off to home.
A tale of woe ye might think... But me being me memorised his number plate... I have submitted a forn V888 to dvla at a small cost and reasonable reason to request his address so I can either call or send him a Thankyou card and a token gift.... Restores my faith in human nature and I will stop when I see a similar situation to offer my services.... Providing I have had my weetabix that morn
