I work for a birdy charity and 99% of my travel is by train in order to minimise the carbon footprint we put out. All to the good but it takes forever to get to a destination to actually start my work. No complaints here though, trains are my thing.
Occasionally I have to hire a car for a drive of a couple of hundred miles. It is normally a wee roller skate, suited entirely to economic city driving. However, on this hire I scored a bit of an upgrade. This is a Nissan Juke and has a decent sat nav and a parking camera.
I am a bit miffed that it arrived today (Friday, 3.30) for hire on Tuesday next week; parking is already tight in my street as next door seem to be running a clandestine and noisy Romanian people trafficking/scrap metal outfit from their house, and the cars and vans are frequent and endless. I am not insured on it for another three days, so there it will sit, stealing my neighbour's slot. And it will remain in situ' all next weekend too after I park it up and it comes off hire next Friday afternoon.
I think the firm who dropped it off have a number plate tailored to their drop off policy.
