    Default Panic!

    True story

    female friend calls me today at work.

    "hello"
    "chris, its me are you at work?" (voice high pitched, panicing, clearly crying)

    "yes sweetheart, whats wrong?" (deeply concerned)

    "I need your, I really need your help......(tears begin full flow, voice starts to really crumble), I just picked up my new car from the garage next to your work and, and....."

    (oh my god, shes just smashed her new car)

    "and what hun, whats happened?"

    " I tried to do a 3 point turn in the road, (heavy sniffing and sobbing now)
    and i, ...... i, ............ cant find reverse".........................



    words fail me
    I had to go up, there was a que of traffic but by the time I got there, thankfully, someone had managed to move the car.

    what happened?
    Well, it would appear that Renault had stupidly made the reverse gear only accessable if you lifted the clip under the gear stick and then tried to put it in reverse........... how stupid, eh.

    and you wonder why i go out with men..............

    Must admit I was like that when I got my first ever car, but luckily I was on my drive, but sorted it within 2 minutes lol.

    Vauxhall have been using this method for years!

    Even the Vec C uses it.

    How stupid!

    i remember watching someone with a cateram kit car slowly and stopping then again... driving closer and closer and closer to a wall till they hit it - they couldnt find reverse and then they got out and pushed it back and roared off looking rather sheepish

    0-Large smile ......every time it's driven
