"THERE'S NOTH­ING BET­TER THAN GET­TING NEW CAR PARTS DE­LIV­ERED. BUT THERE'S ALSO NOTH­ING WORSE THAN UN­RE­LI­ABLE DE­LIV­ERY FIRMS PISS­ING YOU ABOUT BE­FORE­HAND"

Fast Car - - Up Front -

If there’s one thing that can spoil the won­der­ful feel­ing of your new wheels ar­riv­ing, it’s the bum­bling fool who’s de­liv­er­ing them. I es­pe­cially love it when you get a text message thought­fully in­form­ing you the driver will be with you be­tween 6am and 2pm. Well thanks for be­ing so bloody pre­cise.

You lit­er­ally can’t do any­thing un­til they’ve ar­rived, be­cause your par­cel will be back in their van or thrown be­hind your neigh­bour’s bin quicker than you can say “overnight parts from Ja­pan”.

You can’t even have a shower, in the un­likely event they turn up at the ear­lier part of the ridicu­lous time slot. (Has that ever hap­pened to any­one, or do they ar­rive at 1:55pm for ev­ery­one else too?).

And you just know they’re go­ing to push that bell the very sec­ond you start push­ing out last night’s Korma. I’ve lost count of the amount of times I’ve had to speed wipe to get to the front door in time. But don’t worry, I al­ways shake the guy’s hand af­ter­wards. I’m nice like that!
