So ... yesterday, John and I had a little adventure on the corner of Wood Lane and the Westway (yeah, that's an entrance to an on-ramp, but don't worry, we managed to pull up onto the curb until the car decided to die completely):
All I have to say is, thank goodness for:
1) iPhones and Google Maps
2) friendly, kind and cheerful breakdown repairmen such as the wonderful man above
3) free weekend parking in the Latimer Road area, specifically, outside the only garage available (which was conveniently closed until Monday)
... and ...
The inside of those tow trucks? They're like, totally awesome. Extremely roomy and fits seven people. I like the addition of the bar across the back, which makes you feel like you're either a) on a rollercoaster or b) a simulation ride. Someone should make a ride based on a tow truck. It would surely blow the HP Theme Park out of the water.
