well..I was working last night (friday) and was having a poor shift on the taxi's...thought my luck started to change as I got a £8 tip then I got a local trip for £10...then the bad luck came back. Had just set off back to the local nightclub and tryed turning a tight corner in the snow in the focus estate I was driving and I skidded towards the kerb. though maybe if I straighten up I might just mount the kerb and maybe get away ok, but how wrong was I . instead the car hit the kerb with a loud bang as it was a high kerb and just stopped in its tracks. got out to check for damage and noticed the drivers side wheel now touching the arch . had to drive about 5 mile with the wheel scrubbing the arch to get it back to the depot. when I got back to the depot I had a quick look to asses the damage. looks like it needs a new wheel and tyre, bottom arm and god knows what else. gonna cost a fair bit no doubt. Well all that shift for nothing and maybe even more money on top of that...stupid fords. And snow.
