I visited the local vehicle test centre with the campervan today. Having spent the last few weeks installing new headlights and foglights and making it generally neat and tidy, I thought there was nothing more I could do to prepare it for the test.
I didn’t expect it to sail through, but I certainly didn’t expect an outright refusal to test it. According to the proprietor, since it is a U.K. reg van it cannot be tested since Britain is not in the EU and the proof of this is they don’t use the Euro.
Now, I do my own work on cars and I have always thought that, despite the popular opinion that mechanics are a bunch of dumbasses, it requires a modicum of brainpower to diagnose problems and repair them safely.
Thanks for bursting my bubble Herr Mechanic.
Notice on board outside kids school: €200-00 reward for information on perpetrator of this heinous crime.
No, it’s not the local B&Q burger van that’s been sprayed, it’s the peoples bus (and a Bürgermeister is a mayor, not someone who is really good at making burgers).
Update: I have been corrected on the pronunciation of bürgerbus, its actually pronounced boogerbus. The kids cracked up laughing when they heard this – to stern looks from the correcter.
Much to their enjoyment, my kids can now curse in two languages and even better, call me rude names without me realising it.
Ekelhaft schwein-kaka-kopf is their latest: disgusting pig shithead... nice…
Or, is that disgusting pigshit head?
Fair play to them though, I would use it too if I were a kid; I may even use it as an adult;-)
I’m turning into one of them. Help!
Actually no, I was like this already -I should fit right in…
