No not me…the significant other…
I explained that if it had been an RX-8 then we wouldn’t be in this situation
Due to the fact you wouldn’t have got to the petrol station in the first place
Hope she realised before driving away
Nope, it conked out half way to Aldi…it’s at the garage now, he’ll look at it tomorrow, works van for me tonight!
I did it to ours a couple of years back, they just emptied the tank, filled up with diesel and off we went. Not cheap though
I was working in France as a watersports instuctor 30 years ago and filled a diesel Transit with petrol.
I broke down 10 yds off the forecourt.
I got it towed back to the site and was siphoning off the fuel thinking we could use it for some of the outboard engines but really didn’t have a clue what I was doing and had no idea of how I was supposed to get it fixed.
A windsurfing instructor walked past on her way back from the beach and in the broadest Essex accent you ever heard asked me if I wanted a hand. I knew she was a shit hot windsurfer but wasn’t sure how she was going to help but I seriously didn’t have a clue so said yes please.
She sent me off to find certain tools and took charge.
She had the back jacked up about 3 feet and drained the tank and started dismantling things and taking injectors out and cleaning them and stuff. (I honestly didn’t have a clue what she was doing)>
I got sent off to get a can of diesel and in a short time the van was back up and running.
Like a fucking idiot in my best patronising way I asked if her Dad was a mechanic or something and had taught her.
She gave me a look of disgust and told me that no her dad wasn’t a mechanic and nor was her boyfriend and neither of them knew fuck all about engines. She had done a full apprenticeship at Fords at Dagenham and was a senior technician.
That is Ford, at Dagenham where they build the Transit Deisel engine.
Massive cockpunch to me for being a cunt.
I did go out and buy her a case of beer and to this day can’t believe how lucky I was that she just happened to walk by and had the skills!
Did you teach her any watersports?
Anyone who could flip a board and rail ride on the sea didn’t need any lessons from me!
Jim I didn’t know you were kinky!
Hope you are taking your rubber bed sheet on that boys camping trip…
Not at all,
I was a watersports instructor for 5 years, any idea how many times I have heard jokes like that?
Hmm, , ok, I’ll give you that one…
Urine trouble now…
gonna have a piss up?
now you’re beating the shit out of me
