thought she lived Deeping ? if so why not go Colsterworth across to Bourne and down ?

just got the vehicle back Wednesday after minor damage to front bumper fixed after someone reversed into it on 28th Dec (George driving)


and today someone else just reversed into it again scratching the bumper :sad: :sad: :sad:

On both occasions driver sounded the horn but the people kept reversing till they hit it because they were reversing without looking where they are going

Some people are just f***ing thick.

Worst examples are mums at schools, and old dears in supermarket car parks.

Idiots who can't understand why I'm picking them up, and/or dropping them off against the wind.

Then bellyaching that they are struggling to get out the car.

Do I care? Do I f***.

I once had a MK3 cavalier rear door wrapped around the front door thanks to the wind.(even after repairs it had weakened the b-pillar that much the door was never the same again.) After that I used to put the child locks on the doors, pain in the backside getting out all the time but was only for the odd windy day! So glad I’ve sliding doors now. I know they can be problematic but, touch wood, never had a problem in 12 years. ( engine cleaner on the rollers now and again and then silicone spray.

She shouldn't have needed to ask, most friends should just be there.

I know this isn't Caroline Flack Online, but this article, from the Metro of all papers, sums up the situation very well.

so called customers

today had a girl phone me up wanting a taxi from a village 12 miles away but she had a dog. So i sent out a driver who likes dogs. He was a long time on the job so I phoned him to see what was going on

Well the dog turned out to be a young puppy !!!! Which was sick in the car on the journey :sad: then when we got to the destination which was a town centre flat she had no lead so driver had to carry puppy to the flat for her. Then she turned round and said she had no money and wouldn't pay anything . Apparently she was paralytic drunk but didn't sound drunk on the phone

SO driver got nothing and had to take car off the road and clean the dog sick out of it so lost a third of a days earnings and I'm left with having to trace who she is and take her to court for the money which will probably cost as much as the fare plus soiling charges were worth

Might have been an idea to take card over the phone before committing driver.

Guessing you have got her mobile number.
