Nicest people in the world

I was on a business trip to Leeds yesterday and had a catalogue of minor disasters, more details to follow. Despite having a bit of a torrid time the people of Leeds have definitely put themselves onto the James Cleverly shortlist for the nicest people in the world.

Upon entering a multi story car park I lowered the window of the car to get the ticket from the machine and was then unable to make it go back up again. I didn’t have enough time to do anything about it before my meeting started so I had to leave it wound down, in a public car park for two hours.

I came back to find that nothing had happened, nothing at all. 10 points to the people of Leeds. I then went off to find a garage to sort out the window before my drive back to London, at 5.20 I found one. They were in the process of closing up but were sympathetic to my plight, ten minutes later the window was secured and I was heading down the M1 to London.

They charged me absolutly nothing, and not only did they do the work for free but they also gave me a can of de-icer. Top work.
The trip home would have been a real high for me because of the kind actions of Leeds’ mechanics had I not been driven into by a truck. I now have lovely scratches and tyre marks down the offside of Susie’s car. Photos to follow.

  1. Us Northerners are like that you know. Although coming from Derbyshire we are always surprised to hear of a Yorkshire man giving something away. Are you sure that lorry wasnt coming after that can of de-icer you thought they had given you for free?
