    Default Boots, Nottingham... Boycot The B@stards...

    As some of you will know, had to take the Mrs to Nottingham today for a 3day conference thingy with her employer, Boots.
    Had to be at head officer, Thane Rd, Nottingham at 11.00 so we duly set off, complete with her usual work attire for a Boots Pharmacy and several changes of clothes for the hotel she was staying in etc etc...
    On arrving at the place at about 11 ish we were directed by the numpty on the gate to this building in the complex....
    Offloaded the Mrs' bags and helped her into the building... departing with see you in a couple of days, will call you later when I get home.....
    5 mins later, on my way back to the M1, gets a phonecall from the Mrs, who was in tears saying come back and get me.....
    So, I duly returns to the Boots head honcho place and there she is with some course director outside and she is in tears.....
    She gets back in the car with all her bags and says to me, in floods of tears.... "Some one wont let me into the conference centre because I havent got a suit jacket".....

    She works 5 or 6 days a week for a Boots Store local to us and wears suit trousers and ironed shirts etc etc... which look smart, so why the f*ck say something like that to someone who has gone 130 miles to this conference....
    I had to drive home with her after the course director said she could go, only to get home and find that she had to get a suit and get back the same night or lose holiday time....never known an employer like it, I thought the police were bad!
    FFS!!
    So, the story is, I'm £50 light for diesel and 640 miles later I'm knackered, having not long walked in the front door after taking her back... and making the mistke of coming across the A616 in the Dark!!

    Plus point is that my K&N filter arrived today.... fit that tomorrow before work....

    Should put a sarie on and tell em your Hindu-see them get round that one without breaking the racism laws!!!!
    Wish I'd have known I could have leant you one from my mrs' wardrobe! Even worse-there's a Next the other side of the roundabout!

    I work at the end of Thane Rd and I hope you thanked them for all their regards= been off for 5 weeks and noone has even rang to see how I am!!!

    At least you're home now mate...........

    Yeah, home at last with an empty wallet and scorched credit cards....
    Total farce if u ask me....

    Anyhows, on the 2nd return journey, I made the error of going across the Peak District on the A616 - thought it'd show me how much of an improvement these headlight bulbs are over the standard fit ones.....
    H7 12V 55W Philips Power 2 Night GT-150
    Guess what.... they are f*cking awful.... even raising the beam does f*ck all to light up the road.... thank God the Siggy Full beams are pretty good.... although after this I'm considering HID's.

    Got a feeling she'll be calling me to pick her up again tomorrow.... dont think she'll be working for Boots much longer either.... cant really blame her either.

    BTW if 640 miles only cost £50 in fuel you are going great. I suspect it cost you more like 60-65

    I'll do some sums quickly.... averaged for the mileage 50 mpg exactly (how f*ckin good is that?!?!?)....

    12.8 gallons used for this trip !


    used £60 worth, but at the fill ups, only cost a total of £50 - if u get me.....

    got to go back again on Wednesday... hopefully not tomorrow after work because I'll be driving all day tomorrow....
