PostSubject: Horrendous day   Fri Jul 21, 2017 10:12 pm

Our son and his partner went away for a couple of days separately. The arrangement was that both would come to our house for his birthday. He had to change trains five times. On the very last leg of the journey someone had thrown themselves in front of the train,causing disruption and rescheduling. He was very late. At the same time his partner who was coming up from London had two tyres blow she used her emergency service to take her to Kwivk Fit at Watford. They did not even start to change the tyres for one and a quarter hours. She also arrived with us vey late. A truly horrendous day for both of them.

What a trail of events andsome! I hope they feel a bit better about life now that it's the next day and in the past.

The person who jumped in front of the train was killed I suppose?

What makes you think that? It really was a horrendous day for them both. My sons train journey from Halifax to Lichfield took him over eight hours.

Travellers were given no more explanation. I would be very surprised if he got up and walked away. His partners driving experience was evidently caused by two tyre valves blowing out.

So that's their slogan gone out the window andsome, "You can't get quicker than a Kwik Fit fitter". If that's what they call 'Quick" I'll eat nut's with a squirrel. yes
