Friday 13th

Place: Work

Situation: About to leave to attend an appointment 13 miles away


How Problem Solved: I took the foot pump out and pumped like hell as fast as my short leg would allow. One of the women in the office asked if I needed help but I sadly told her I was used to dealing with Beetle chicanery due to my car being the anti-Herbie

....oh, and thank you kind stranger for your note. May good karma hunt you down and give you some excellent luck

That's kind - could have taken you much longer if you'd set off like that and damaged it further.

13 miles? Oh sket....you should have been like me and just *don't leave the house* today. (Why tempt fate?) Although I did play with the oven. At least it's not gas.... :-)

At least you were prepared Sket. Your Beetle is like a garage on wheels.

Inside there is, Torch, Jump Leads, Foot Pump, Tow Rope, AA Man.....etc :-)

So your freaky stalker is letting down your tyres and then leaving you notes ;)

Oh that's kind! First they deflate it, then put a note. Very kind indeed.

Your back left tyre is flat ..............

Jesus, is that the best information they could leave you ?
They could have at least told you if it was the "left" looking from the front or the "left" looking from the back of the car.

I bet you were walking round the car for hours trying to figure it out.
