    Thumbs down One of those days!!!!

    Running round like a blue 4r5ed fly all day at work, delivering b0ll0ckings and locking horns with management. Managed to pile out of work half an hour late, and got about half a mile away from home, when the Vectaru gave a polite cough and decided enough was enough, crawling to a halt at the side of the busy dual carriageway - plenty of vroom, but no action!!! Just enough forward movement to get me onto the grass verge

    Flipped my hazards on, and gave Drinky a call to come and help, then stood back to watch the vast number of kind passers by who watched the lone female standing at the side of the road, and drove straight past me!!!!

    Bless his heart, my Lone Ranger came to the rescue, and soon discovered the problem - fortunately just my turbo hose had blown off the intercooler (yes, I felt pretty thick when I saw how easy it was to get back on!!! )
    Soon fixed and back on our way.

    Stunned however, by the young lady who came along at high speed in her little Pug 205 and narrowly avoided ploughing into the back of us because she was...............reading a book at the wheel!!!! Some people should NOT be allowed behind the wheel!!

    Oh yes - and adding insult to injury - poor Vectaru is evidently destined never to have the front lip spoiler for any length of time - the bl00dy thing jammed against the high verge when I pulled off the road, and when we pulled off, it ripped off and split in two. Looks like the cr@ppy rubber one is going back on for good this time

    Hugs and sympathy required...............

    Can really sympathise regarding the lower spliter, scrapped mine in a multi storey car park on Monday. Typically of the way people are nowadays most people just seem to look after themselves and find it a chore to help people. Think a lot of people these days get there license via a lucky dip. Hope chris wont get jealous if a offer you a great big a loads of sympathy.

    It makes you wonder how some people can actually think they can read and drive at the same time, Idiots!

    Things always seem to go wrong when you already having a bad day.

    Why is that?

    Hope you have a better day tomorrow.
