Girls and cars?...a match made in HELL!

My car developed a strange "rattle" this week which seemed to be coming from the back. It mostly occured when I turned a sharp bend or went round a roundabout.

I'm not TOTALLY useless so I took a look underneath but couldn't see anything obvious. I sort of shook the exhaust pipe...kicked the tyres...banged about a bit...nothing! Then I figured there's no point having a brother-in-law who works as a car machanic and not employing the old damsel in distress routine... so I called him.

He dutifully appeared clutching his trusty little tool box and took the car out for a spin. Much to my relief he too heard the rattle and set about investigating it!

I went in to make a start on dinner whilst he tinkered about with it. A few minutes later he appeared saying he had fixed my "little problem."

The rattle was caused by something lose in the compartment where the spare tyre goes in the boot. He was clutching the offending article in his hand. What was it?...a bloody Cadbury's Cream Egg that's what! :o

Anyone else similarly machanically challenge?

I don't even know what a starter motor is darling! But thanks! :thumb:

I'm a bit worried now about "the boy who cried wolf"...next time I have car trouble he'll probably tell be to search for hidden confectionary before he comes round to help me out! :o

Mrs Skinny pulled into the driveway last year and said that there was a repeating thudding sound from her car. I looked out of the window, then said to her "You do realise you've got a flat tyre, don't you?" "Err, no."

Anyway...

I tried to reverse out of a parking space in Sainsburys the other day but the thing wouldn't budge...I put my foot to the floor...nothing! I asked a passing guy to look underneath to see if something was stuck under the car. He looked. There wasn't. I still had the handbrake on! :o

I was sent on a towing a trailor course at work two weeks ago......
spent two days driving around with the trailor, reversing and hooking / unhooking the trailor.....

the exam...... first thing I was asked was to unhook the trailor.....
There was an easy 5 step move I'd practiced over and over..... so I get to step three and drive off.....
the emergancy cable and electric cable still attached.... snapped the cable.... couldnt continue with the exam as couldn't drive without the cable....

as a well known mod would say.....

Epic Fail

I was embarressed to f***:o

Alma,that picture is of a transvestite.

I know this because an old school friend (or should I say fiend Ha!) pretended it was him in a email.(because he is a tranny:squiffy:) and got it from some trannysville site.:D just didn't want anyone feeling inadequate in the breast department looking at those!!:eek:
