I heard that sales of freezers are now up 200%.
My annoyance today was taking my car in for its booked MOT and finding the main dealer I use had barricaded the car park entrance and left the building empty. No warning, even though I spoke to them earlier this week.
Due to MOTs now running for a year from the test date, rather than a year from the expiry of the previous, the date moves back each year. My certificate expires on 28th March, so not covered by the extension. I managed to get an appointment for Monday, so hopefully that will be OK.
The MOT was put back anyway by a chipping causing a crack in the windscreen, which crept up to above a third of the height of the windscreen on the driver's side. Despite trying on Monday last week, I only got a response after contacting one of the companies (Autoglass) via their web site contact form and a follow up email when that was ignored. They came on Saturday - with the wrong windscreen. Rearranged for next available date on Thursday. Then a message on Wednesday saying they were cancelling all appointments except for essential workers etc. So I contacted company and played the age card, as I'm 71. Finally done.
And the saga still goes on, until the car passes.
