Dilemma

... so, now that the warm weather has finally arrived, I wonder who else has the same decisions?

So there you are, getting to work with your shiny polished car. Do you park it in the sun, and burn your bum when you get in the car at end of day, or do you park under the shade of trees, keeping the interior cool, but subjecting it to the vagaries of the birds dropping various bodily things!!!!

Choices, choices....

Re: Dilemma

I'd accept the heat and leave it in the sun. I've had bad experiences of huge pigeons dropping bombs on my shiny paintwork - thankfully on my old car and not on the Alfa. I had to literally use a stiff scraper and boiling water to get it off, and that was when it was almost 'fresh'!

Re: Dilemma

Sounds like the episode of Cheers where Sam was selling his Corvette.

edit: in case anyone isn't old enough to remember, the correct answer is that you never take your car out in the blazing sun - think of the paintwork!

Absolutely!


Best argument for working from home that I've heard in a long while...
