My Ill Car

I've just had a phonecall from the garage doing my car's MOT.

It has failed on its brake pads and two suspension arms.

I am sad.

It will cost nearly £400 to get fixed.

It looks like I will be walking to work this week…

  1. Poor Ali!
    It's quite ironic that one of the safest drivers I know gets a massive bill for brakes and suspension…I reckon you must have been going out for secret races at night when I'm not looking! :–p

  2. I blame the road humps that I travel over every day on Tile Hill Lane…even at 20mph they must hurt my poor car!

    That's rubbish Ali. Good thing you're so filty rich so can afford it! ;)
    Not sure about the humps on that road, i travel over them at 20–30 every day and the metromobile passed its MOT a couple of weeks ago.
    If you want a consolatory drink on campus anypoint, give me a text as I'm usually around for the next couple of weeks.

    AW, poor Ali's car, does the wonder that is calpol not work on cars? That's one amazing medicine – yumyumyum!

    • Filthy Rich??? You know something I don't….!
    • Metromobile passed the MOT and mine didn't – that's not fair
    • Drink on campus – yes please, but it will take me 20 minutes to get there, plus my phone is broken so I can't text you!
    Hayley

    Thanks for the sympathy

    Funnily enough, I've not tried calpol on a car, but I agree it is tasty!
