How to embarrass yourself at the MOT station

Post by Eightpot on Thu May 28, 2015 12:44 pm

1. Drive there in a Hijet. (some may say that's fulfills the above criteria on its own).
2. Hand keys over and retire to the waiting room.
3. Listen to the sound of splashing water.
4. Watch as the tester makes a grab for the paper towel dispenser.
5. Note that the origin of the water sound is coming from the underside of your hijet high up on the lift. And the water is pink.
6. Accept the testers invitation to come and look over the hijet to find the source of said leak. Walk over with that deep sense of foreboding in the pit of your stomach that the head gasket has popped. Again.
7. Feel relief that the actual source of the leak is the fitting between the coolant hose and flow meter you fitted a week ago.
8. Aplogise to the tester that you've pissed coolant over his shiny, clean floor while inwardly thanking the great god Wotan that you don't have to rip the engine to pieces. Again.
9. Ask if he has a watering can you could borrow, hoping that you don't come across as taking the micky too much.
10. Proceed to fill the cooling system with water, trying not to get even more liquid over his shiny, clean floor. And failing.


11. Be amazed that he hands you a fresh pass cert, after leaving his MOT station look like the aftermath of a gycol tsumani.

You mean you didn't even offer to help clear up? Or hug him for letting you pass???

Such dreadful eloquence from you rabble!!

I think Andy with that very talented bit of Journalism you should usurp Jeremy Clarkson and take over his Motoring Column in the paper.
That's the best laugh I have had this week.
Well done mate.

I did read that right didn't I Peter??
You did say " hug him for letting you PASS" and not HJ's suggestion.
Thought I better clear that up before Logi gets the wrong end of the stick.

Last year the tester got the hijet stuck on the rolling road/brake tester & had to ask 2 staff to help push him out..
