Ooh, how good is that title?
I got a telephone call on Thursday or Friday of last week from a guy named Ian at Balder who’re the company I’m hoping to buy the controls from for my new car - after the introductions the conversation went along the lines of:
Him: “You enquired about our controls? Well, we have a vehicle in the country available for you to take a test drive in.”
Me: “Excellent! When?”
Him: “Tuesday the 17th?”
Me: “Great! Where are you?”
Me: “Ah, I’ll have to try and arrange transport, someone to come with me, someone else to help me in and out of the car - I’ll try and make it but I can’t guarantee it …”
Him: “We’ll come to you.”
Me: “Fucking marvellous! Oops, excuse me …”
So, on Tuesday sometime after 11 o’clock I should be cruising around Kidderminster in a car/van/vehicle of some kind and it’ll be the first time I’ll have driven in the last 15 months, so finger crossed that I don’t trash it!
