OT: How embarrassing.

This is probably totally childish but I found it very amusing.

On the daily commute I pass the local Audi dealership and on the homeward bound journey tonight traffic comes to a standstill when leaving the dual carriageway which is some distance from the Audi dealership. Junction is blocked solid, everyone becoming irate. Eventually get to the source of the problem and it turns out to be an Audi salesman, on a test drive with a potential customer? but the Audi A4 is not moving & potential customer is sitting at the wheel looking very miffed.

But then what's this? Woman in another Audi appears, with Audi Priory Park, proudly emblazoned down the side of the car, promptly takes a fuel can out of the boot and passes it to the by now cold, dejected looking Audi salesman.

I just had to stop & make it obvious I was laughing at him - he then scowled at me - cheek Obviously no sense of humour.

When I took an E92 out for a test drive recently prior to ordering I thought I was going to run out of fuel at one point - I think fumes alone got me back to the stealers!

I never thought of that Gordon - damm I should have done

I know, I could go to Priory Park, find the salesman & ask him if he wouldn't mind repeating the episode, so I can be prepared with a half decent camera & post it on this forum. Do you think he'd oblige?

And when you have finished with the international hand signals maybe offer the punter a lift to the nearest BMW dealership?

He will then find out what crap customer service is all about.

You could always add " Move that fucking pile of shit out of the way " before refering to their need for self gratification

Steve - I wouldn't expect anything less from you - that dry Lancashire wit eh? Besides, obviously being a lady, I wouldn't dream of shouting 'wanker' in public
