Fingers crossed I've not broke it
« on: 26 November 2019, 09:57:54 »

 .... SWMBOs car is due a service, I'm too bone idle to crawl under it so I A framed'd it to Citroen which is about 6 miles awayand due to traffic barely got to 30mph the whole journey.

When I got there I realised I'd left it in Reverse & not neutral (it's a slush box auto)  :o :-[ :-[ :-[ I drove it around their car park OK

When they've serviced it, just reverse it all the way home and that should be all right!  :)

I got the bus into town and back the day my pass arrived, just to see a) if the pass worked and b) if buses had changed much since I used them. Never again, not while I've got a hole in my arse.

Didn't realise you were that short of money! . Being serious you could practise your spiel on here. If you can cope with the forum hecklers, pundits, experts and nay sayers then the general public would be a breeze.
