Yule be sorry

It was Christmas 1992 and I was driv­ing the old­est car I have ever owned, a bea­tup Morris Ma­rina. En route to my broth­erin-law’s house for Christmas din­ner, the clutch started jam­ming in the dis­en­gaged po­si­tion. I couldn’t af­ford to take the car to a garage even if I could find one that was open, but my next-door neigh­bour came to my res­cue and helped me drop the gear­box and re­place the worn bit. Just as we fin­ished, I no­ticed a sleeve bear­ing sit­ting on the wall! An­other neigh­bour loaned me his Volvo for Christmas Day, then we spent Box­ing Day putting the bear­ing where it be­longed!
