100photos2I got myself organised early this morning because my car was due for it’s service and I had to drop it off at the garage.  Then somehow I got into autopilot mode and drove straight past the garage heading off towards my workplace.  When I came to my senses I did a quick detour at the next roundabout and tried not to feel stupid.

As part of the service they will drop you off at a convenient local place, which saves the effort of trying to get some other form of transport to wherever you want to go.  Very few buses go to my workplace so it saved me a lot of hassle.

When I turned on the ignition after  I had got the car back one of those irritating alarm bells was bonging at me and I noticed they hadn’t removed the maintenance warning from the dashboard display.  This meant that I had to go back inside to get a mechanic to come out and reset it for me.  Then on the way home I noticed that the clock was now set at the wrong time!!!  What a good job I am not a technaphobe and I know how to read instruction manuals!

They do however seem to have found a car underneath the layer of dirt that had accumulated after the rain.  In fact I rather get the feeling they were trying to turn it into a mirror.

    Permit me a smile. You keep your car clean too.

      Off course I keep my car clean!!! I normally take it down the road to be hand washed by a very industrious (but small) private enterprise ;-)
