Swindon = Fail

So it was raining hard on M6 = traffic slow

Wippers started squeaking making horrible rubbing sound = getting more irritated.

Then hit longer then usually queue to get on M5. wipers doing my noodle in by now =

Stop for coffee, clean wipers = chilled again

Then on M5, some numptie holiday makers (who only venture out onto mway once a year) crashed and caused me to loose another half an hour and detour around M42 - Redditch - worcestor = iDrive bloody ace

Swindon = 1 hour late for meeting

Home = beer downed and rant over

Surely a man in your position could have arranged a video-conference . Think of the depreciation on the Beemer with all those miles

Unfortunatley, these needed to be face to face....

It was only 320 miles, and tbh Roger I would rather use my car than save 5p come trade-in (well that's what the salesman always tells me . Actually It's surprising how little 10k miles actually affects the value
