...is what I am :-(
Up early this morning for my Thursday am Business Jaunt which allows me to cover 100 miles or so on the A1 and Dual Carriageways. First half at 6am onwards, so nice and quiet and plenty of 'spirited' driving.
Yet on the way back she felt like she was struggling for power, to the extent that pulling from 70 (In fifth!) up a hill next to nothing was happening, and then I realised my foot was flat to the floor, could go no further (A fairly rare experience in a V6!).
Cue, panicing, what's going on blah, blah, blah. Get home, sulk for a bit, and then decide to check it's not something stupid (Wait for it!), checked air filter, exhaust, sparks etc. All ok, It wasn't until I pulled the drivers sider car mat out....
...yes, that's right, the floor mat had got pushed forward and was trapped under the accelerator so it wouldn't go all the way down :-(
So, now that I've shared, what daft things have you lot done recently, don't pretend I'm the only one!
