    Broken Down Again

    As the title,C.V joint collapsed (my own fault knew they needed changing)on me been out doing bits and pieces nearly home and it breaks luckily only about 100 yards from my house but i live just off a steep bank so couldn't push it home.
    Had to ring one of my mates go and buy a tow rope and tow it up the bank,thought it would have been a bit of a nightmare towing up hill but it wasn't that bad.
    Now i have to wait for the guy from the garage to come and pick my keys up so he can tow it away tomorrow,but he reckons he will have it fixed tomorrow so shouldn't be without it to long.

    Why is it something allways happens when your off work trying to relax and get a few bits and pieces done?????
