The Love Bug
*insert string of heavy and excessive expletives here*
She failed on two counts:
The upshot of this is that I have a car without a new MOT, and as my previous MOT certificate has already expired, the only legal journeys I can make in my car are to and from an MOT test centre.
- Rear Fog Lamp
Yeah, well I knew the bulb was gone, and I asked them to replace it. However, when they did, it still didn't work. Immediate failure, without investigative reasoning.
- Rear N/S Brakes
Quoted as "little or no effort" - meaning that it basically doesn't work. Immediate failure, without investigative reasoning.
I cannot get the items in question fixed until Monday morning, as my service centre closes at 12:30 today.
Spot the problem?
I have a wife and child in Yorkshire that I cannot go and see. I have a wife whom I wanted to spend Mothering Sunday with, and I have my Mum in Worcestershire who we were going to visit tomorrow. I now cannot do this.
I looked into the possibility of getting a hire car, but our plans revolved around the fact that I was going to work in Nottingham on Tuesday and come back on Wednesday. That's 5 days car hire. In addition, I'd need to allocate time to put Charlie back in for fixing/MOT and it's financial year end next week... I'm also working next weekend, so that idea doesn't really work.
You have no idea how pissed off I am about this... not to mention how disappointed Caroline, Amy, my Mum and Caroline's Mum are feeling.
