Too bad the steering wheel was installed in the wrong side.
Normally I appreciate the postie popping by, however this morning he popped backwards (aka reversed) into my better half's Golf. With me in it.... I saw his reversing lights, but had nowhere to escape.
Sounding the horn didn't work either since, by his own account, his stereo was turned up too loud.
No harm except for a sad postie and a mad owner (aka not me). Just piles of hassle to get stuff sorted.

Apart from the bloody waste of time having it arranged the rest is paid for.
If it had been my Lotus the postie would have had other worries on top.
And something for a road trip in summer.
Roads in the area, and a spot you leave your car a bit away from....
Best part is that having driven the hairpin road down there's only one way out of this place, back up the same road!

Just need to look out for those tourist coaches. Not enough room to pass!!!
Anyone fancy a slightly different tack ?
How about your first car with some oomph ?
