Why does a simple car problem turn into a very expensive one?
So the catch on the bonnet got jammed on Sunday. I poodle off to work on Monday morning – all the way to Swindon – and ring the garage. Bring it round they say. I do.
They ring later in the day. “You need a new bonnet catch. And whilst we were checking the car over we found you need a new drive shaft as well”
So I get home and find the vacuum cleaner has been parked in the middle of the sitting room with a note from our cleaner telling us it’s broken.
Jolly good again!
I’m now living in terror of a third financial challenge!
