So I'm out on the driveway cleaning the car when I spot 3 lads pushing a Corsa from around the corner... obviously broken down...
They strap a piece of rope to its front... and then tie it to the back of another corsa, which had appeared from nowhere.
I watched as they took in the slack on the rope... the lead car pulled away and..... 'snap' the piece of rope broke.
So I thought, these chaps are going to be here all day. So I went into the garage and grabbed my tow-rope (which I've never used ) and handed it over to the lads, who promptly thanked me and drove off.... saying "we'll drop it back to you later today"
So.... did I ever see my tow-rope again ?
