After one alloy being kerbed some time ago, well I managed to kerb one of the back ones last night :(

We had been out on a stag/hen do and I was driving a few legless men home when I went round a tight corner, Malcolm should be familiar with the bend into The Hornets near the football ground, and I could hear that awful graunch as the wheel hit the kerb :Oops:

In my defence I was wearing very high heels and couldn't reach the pedals very well, hadn't moved the wing mirrors and had forgotten to raise the seat, so I was kind of peering over the top of the steering wheel. As I had also been standing for over 4hrs and my feet were killing me too I think I did quite well to just damage an alloy really :p

Well it's that or me saying I must be a crap driver to have done that :Oops:

If my other half tells me once more that a new alloy will cost him £400 I am going to kick his butt. I didn't even want to go out last night but was coerced :p

I apologise - we men can be very unreasonable at times. What's £400 compared to the love of a good woman? ;)

Thank you Malcolm, that is what I suggested. However he says 'it's never the same, it never matches' honestly it can be very hard to please some men :p

I refuse to comment on the grounds that it may incriminate me, apart from that a slap from a woman usually hurts;)

Is that the meaning of the saying " I would die for that"
