Tom's Top Tale: Wonky Cars & Wobbly Dads
Cars that just wouldn't start - that was our theme on Wednesday. Provoking Chris to remember this:
Years ago, leaving a family 'do' with my folks, Mum was driving, Dad was a bit wobbly. The car would not start so they phone the Recovery guys. My Dad, being the bloke, decided he would deal with the chap when he arrived. I will never forget the look on the mechanics face as my dad, swaying ever so slighly but ever so noticably, explained to him "yesh, the problem ish... my car.. it won't stop.... eh, start." We were all sorted out when my mum, sober and slightly embarrassed came down the drive to explain that it was ok, she was driving.
