Thank God For Builders!!

On Saturday morning I was driving down the street and then suddenly I started to feel a bit of a pull on my car to the left side, I was thinking, 'what is going on?'

I wasn’t far from home so one of my best friends advised that I drive it home at least and then I sort out something from there.

He was already in South London so it would have taken him over 1 hour to reach me. He told me to put my hazards on and drive around 10/20 miles an hour.

Anyway…I started to drive back dead slow and I was worrying what I would do - I had a lot of things on that day and was worrying how I would do it all with no car. It was just starting to rain when I drove past some builders, the light bulb switched on in my head and I pulled over and jumped out. In my most, I'm a weak helpless woman voice, I said to one of them 'does any of you know how to change a tyre?' I put on my big helpless eyes and it worked!! whoohoo!

The guy I asked was obviously the boss, he was in a suit he looked at me and then down at his suit and hesitated. I could actually see his thought process, he was probably thinking that he wanted to do it, but he was wearing a suit and it was rainy and muddy.

He replied 'no problem, one of the boys will do it for you' and he called one of them over and said 'Rob can you change tyres?' Rob arrived with some BIG grin and said 'yeah sure' then another guy came over and said 'Ill do it boss' then Rob said to him 'I've got it covered, it doesn’t take two of us' then he and the other guy started fighting… I couldn’t actually believe it!! Men were fighting over who was going to change my tyre in the cold, wet and rain????????????? Amazing huh…. Anyway Rob did it, and I had to take a picture as look at what his Jacket says, what a great name! All I can say is…

Thank God for Builders
