No, he's a great payer. It goes something like this
6:20pm last night, just locking up, phone rings....
Punter; hi Si it's St*****. we are in the shit. We are heading off to France on monday to do the Circuit Des R******* and the Rallye Du A*******e
and the damn B has broken down. Can you help?
Me; Erm, yeah, does it have to be today though?
Punter; oh yes, we want to visit friends en route. I've spent all day trying to fix it, checked all the wiring, taken the fuel pumps off, stripped the carbs, checked the ignition.
Me; OH. What happened last time you did that?
Punter; yes, yes I know. I thought I would stop before I got too far. Only when I started putting it back together lots and lots of smoke started coming out from behind the dash.
Me; jesus, has it stopped?
Punter; I don't know, I can't see from here, i'm in the kitchen. I thought it best I asked your advice before I bugger things up.
Me; God give me strength. Get off the phone, disconnect the battery and I'll be there in 30 minutes.
So, it looks like a busy weekend for me. Customers eh!
