Wow, here we are again, with only a few days to go until gentlemen up and down the nation wake to the reality that only one shopping day remains before Christmas, that this is it and that the current gift count is zero.
‘Not a problem’, they say. ‘A spot of click and collect will see things sorted’. But therein lies the problem because, on firing up the phone or laptop, up pops the last page visited and there they sit, transfixed by those curves, that pose, the glorious angles, topped off with a pair of magnificent… headlamps.
Yes, they are looking at car porn again and those minutes are turning to hours, as fleets of Mercedes delivery vans wind down toward that singular restful day in their year and shops dim displays.
Suddenly, the chill fear of realisation enters the souls of these sorry, lost fellows, for now there is only one choice left. The service station.
‘Clap’ - You are back in the room. Do that shopping right now… and go for the gift-wrapped option, you tight wad. It’ll save hours of wrapping misery and it’s surprising just how long those tiny pieces of sticky tape remain in your mouth.
This is supposed to be about cars, bikes, trucks, buses, etc, right? Well, it is, as now you are perfectly primed to enjoy a couple of days unfettered, messing about with your motor during the holidays.
Shop local where you can. Small businesses could do with your support right now.
