To be fair, she must've took one look at you and concluded "infantile, child-like", and arranged your sandwich accordingly.

It was a bloke, but in fairness he looked about 80 so I can see where he got confused.

Honda offering me a better price on my current car in PX than a Renault dealer. My current car is a Renault. I guess I should be happy they are, which I am, but somewhat irritated that a dealer I've dealt with for my last few motors is giving me a crappy deal on a car they would charge top dollar for as it's their brand.

Those automated phone lines where you have to say, in a few words, what you are calling for - which of course never understand what you are saying.

That's because Renault know the electrics are:
a) not working
b) about to stop working

Get it round to Honda quick. :D

I was shocked when I realised it was a beamer. Usually their drivers keep a safe distance and never drive like utter bells.

When your pouring milk on your cornflakes and you catch one at the wrong angle and it fires milk over the kitchen worktop.

Did this this morning.

Had the kids in the car, just about to drive off when I realised I didn't have it. 5 minutes back inside the house looking, but couldn't find it anywhere. So had to drop them off and come back to the house to look again. Eventually found it hung up in the wardrobe in yesterdays trousers. Headbanger

That's not losing it, that's temporarily misplacing it.

Mine is lost lost, in the back of a cab most likely never to be seen again. 5 separate debit/credit cards to cancel, driving license, numerous other membership cards etc and worst of all a caffe nero loyalty card with a full 9 stamps thus entitling me to a FREE coffee.

Pedant!

Couldn't be in the back of a cab, else you wouldn't have been able to pay for the journey as you got out...

Edit: Unless it was an Uber!! :D
