    Has anyone had this trouble of having ya van pinched ???

    Stopped and spoke to a fellow windy today and he started saying that he knows to a fair few people who have had the vans pinched when cleaning !!! He himself had one stolen not long back .
    He was working away and his water stopped so went to look and someone had cut his hose and drove off in his van !!!

    Had a good chat with him and seems a nice enough bloke like and he said if he picks any more work up he will pass it on to me as he has started to slow down a bit now as he's getting on and is taking his time .

    Makes me think about changing my design on the my van (when I get it) to have a little flap the hose can come out of instead of having to leave the door open.

    You can't trust anyone these days

    If you a stupid enough to leave your key's in the ignition insurance companies will not pay out if your car/van gets nicked. :D

    I always lock my van when working no matter what sort of area I think it is. ;)
