Well, tonight Claire unintentionally took my Vectra field racing.

She came back in an hour ago

She was going about 40 mph, hit something slippy in the road (probably diesel) and went skidding into a field. She was going to the store, and was rushing to get there before it closed. Turns out she didnt get there after all. the car "bounced" into the field, and travelled a distance before coming to a stop :rant2:

I had a quick look under the car, and it appears that there is Something (possibly part of the exhaust) hanging under the car, its clearly broken, along with most likely the suspension struts.

She had to get recovery to bring her and the car home.

She's fine BTW, as annoyed as me, nothing like this has happened before...

Looks like ANOTHER repair bill for this car.

Im going to make her drive my Range Rover from now on!

Or maybe not, the Vectra is the cheapest, I think she can jsut use that. Its a V6 though, not cheap to fix.

Oh yeah, I keep forgetting what she does for a living LOL

Hey what grade does she teach?
Shes the head mistress, so she does little actual hands on teaching., although next year shes is taking a role as a deputy head, for similar wages, more teaching, and less time in the building.

She teaches kids aged between 11 and 16, The hell years

Secondary education, its a good school, my kids went there, but since shes the boss they know better than to mess with her, they can be evil!

She loves her job, its why shestaking a demotion to teach more
