Story by the Pig’s Armaments Correspondent.
I’ve always thought of that large hardware chain as something of a family affair. Clearly this is a somewhat antiquated view.
Even if it isn’t an antiquated view, few volunteers sought to take the opportunity to point out to the wearer the dubious taste associated with wearing such a T-shirt.
On a different note, while we’re at the hardware mega chain, here’s a photograph of a hole in the ground. More to the point a pothole in their carpark that threw the Zephyr off line and caused me to back into a diminuitive car. I left an apologetic note to the owner with my details, expecting to get a rocket up my back door. The damage looked like a new plastic bumper bar to me.
Instead, later that evening I got a very pleasant SMS thanking me for being honest and saying that the owner would call his insurer (same one as mine) in a day or so. I was shocked.
And pleasantly surprised to have found a far more reasonable and civilised chap than our friend here of the short arms persuasion.
Winsome, loosum, I guess.
In case anyone is worried about the state of the Zephyr, worry not. Car made of steel versus plastic toy car ? Foregone conclusion.
Happy New Year to all the crowd at the Pig’s Armaments.
