Jez, on the other hand thinks this would be a false economy as the replacement vehicle would not be as economical to run and we would have to spend a lot of money getting it serviced and MOTed. He could be right, but once I get my mind set on something…..
So, I planned to wash and polish my car all by myself, take photos and put up for sale. That way Jez would know I was serious. I had it all planned out in my head what I needed to do and on my way home I pulled in to the petrol filling station to fill up with diesel. For some strange reason I thought my tank was on the left and I parked on the wrong side of the pump, I’d never done this before. I needed to swap sides which would be an easy manouvre for any driver, just a case of pulling forward and then reversing again so the pump would be on my right instead of my left.
Before I pulled away I noticed this big, yellow bollard in front of the pump, it had some large black scuff marks on it where some poor sole had driven into it. I thought, ‘what plonker would drive into such a big, bright bollard, how could anyone not miss it?’.
I pulled forward and CRUNCH, damaging the rear wing and door!
So the day I plan to sell it I dink it – what’s the chances of that happening to someone?
