    its a funny game this window cleaning, when its going right its great, when it goes wrong you find yourself thinking about being employed again.

    Indeed. they're all problems with solutions though :) just bad they happened at the same time, as things seem to do. Keep at it as the majority on here are success stories :)

    I had a Frank moment many years ago while on holiday in Cornwall. Me, the Mrs and dog decided to take the tent for 2 weeks. I had a Rover 220GTI and wedged it all in the boot with the dog sat on top of it all :D. Anyway on the last night it blew a gale and I mean a gale. In the morning the tent was that mangled that the roof of it was touching me nose as I slept. I was quite happy to keep on snoozing but the Mrs insisted I got up. I wedged all the gear in the boot and we drove off on the long track home. I hadn't even got out of Cornwall when I noticed a rattling noise from the engine. Hmm, fk it just keep driving I said to myself. As we approached Bridgewater on the M5 I heard 2 bangs [delusional]. I had a blow out on a tyre and the exhaust valves had blown at the very same time! We were a mile from the junction. I managed to change the wheel, after emptying all of the camping gear and making sure the dog weren't going to leg it across 3 lanes. I decided to limp off the motorway. As we got off there was a lay-by and parked up was an AA van. Yippee saved! Hi mate can I join up please as I have got a big problem with my motor. Err, you can't just join when you break down mate, but I can give you a tow to the nearest Rover garage. Nice one, cheers mate. I bung him a drink and they are just about to close for the weekend :thumbsdown:. Leave your car here and we will look at it on Monday. Oh frig, I live about 150 miles from here, I've got a dog and the car is full of camping gear. So, we get a few bits and bobs out the car and the AA man gives us a lift to the train station. I'm wandering if they charge for dogs on trains, oh frig they do. We buy just 2 single tickets and get on the next train. Oh ******** here comes the conductor, hide the bloody dog. Sweat rolling down me cheeks as I shove a coat over the dog just before jobs worth checks out tickets. Luckily he didn't suss pooch :D. We call the mother in law when we arrive at our station and she picks us up and takes us home. My neighbour who was a car dealer saw us without a car on the drive and asked if he could park one of his on my drive as he hadn't got space for all of his motors. **** right off tw@t. Garage ring up and want £600 to fix the car :eek:. No thanks. So I send a transporter down to bring it back. Then I book it in a garage near us who came and collected it and fixed it for £300. The car was never the same after that.

    The end.

    Night night cnc.
