caught ebola outside a hospital
was driving the other day when the car just started doing weird things the wipers were giving very slow, the music stopped and the engine just cut out.
I was going downhill, so was rolling down trying to work out what the fuck had happened.
As the road flattened out, I noticed a bus bay, so pulled in. Tried everything, but the car was completely dead. I was in the middle of nowhere, it was passing down and life seemed very bad.
Anyway, had a look round...and right opposite was a garage!
fucking beautiful. Apparently, the battery had a loose connection, so they juiced her up, sorted out the dodgy connection and I was on my way. They didn't want anything for the work, either.
unbelievable luck, eh!
my dog died outside a pet shop
by a friend after throwing one of its occasional hissy fits. The towrope snapped...just outside a Halfords.
Victory from the jaws of defeat.
