Don’t put petrol in the new diesel car …
Don’t put petrol in the new diesel car …I was in a rush, wasn’t paying attention – you can see where this is going…
I put petrol in the new diesel car a couple of weeks ago.
It’s taken me this long to stop being too embarrassed to own up.
A really nice man from Ukraine in a van marked:
“WRONG FUEL RESCUE”
relieved me of about £200 and the last of any dignity I might have had after I spluttered off the road.
“PETROL WANKER” shouted the kids from the school, helpfully, as I had skillfully timed this for 3.15pm.
I agreed in my own head, that at that age, I would have shouted the same, even though, jokes on them –
I am. in fact. a diesel wanker.
Just as helpfully:
“The AA would have sorted that for you, love”, said an old man walking past – you not a member?
No. I was not a member.
The best part of an afternoon, a wodge of cash and friends having to do MY school run later…I was on the road again.
It wasn’t my finest hour – but to be fair not my worst either.
The moral of this story…
Inattention and putting important things off (I MEANT to join the AA – it was on my ‘to-do’ board marked as Important but not Urgent. It moved up to the Urgent box and got sorted that day) – can seriously rob future you of time.
So trust me when you know that our Time Management FB Live on Wednesday 8:30 pm comes from a place of:
WE GET IT!!
Claire’s got a similar car wrong thing in the wrong hole story for you later.
(That’s what she said)
Everyone makes mistakes, right?
Come and learn how to NOT waste time and use yours wisely.
I went red as I typed that.
