My car failed its MOT the other day; nothing serious, no big surprise: the driver’s side mirror is broken. (Mine and another car were waiting at traffic lights. They were on red and it was a two-lane road but a third car drove between us, smashing my mirror and careering on up the road.)
The garage didn’t have a replacement mirror so I’ve taken my car home and they were supposed to be ringing round to get me one.
I just phoned to see what was happening:
GARAGE: Ah, yes, he’s just fitting it now.
ME: Unlikely. The car’s here.
