Oh No #7

by

We hadn’t visited Biarritz in years so we decided to retread our steps to a beautiful seafront hotel overlooking the surf. Despite the long tiring drive, punctured by traffic holdups on the autoroute we were just as pumped up as the French themselves embarking on their summer vacances.
But oh no! We were quickly deflated to discover on arrival that the hotel had been commandeered by the KwikFit annual sales conference. How very tiresome but you’ve got to spare a laugh! Despite this much compensated by the gourmet Michelin blowouts and the beach crumpet enough to tighten any salesman’s nuts!

    I’m picturing a long tiring drive punctured (sic) by traffic holdups...hope there weren’t any punctures and that the only blowouts were of the Michelin variety, and suitably slow-fit. Sounds a lot of fun, prompting a fun drabble!

    Actually a situation experienced in Tobago transposed to France - a sort of hybrid drablr? Except it wasn’t KwikFit but the Caribbean Union of National Tyre Fitters Society. Get it?

    Tyre fitters is one word in Trinidad and Tobago and around the Caribbean by the way.

    Since reading this I feel Tyrefitters may become a swear word of sorts where I work... :)

    On second thoughts it could have been the Union of Tyreshifters but it doesn’t make a lot of difference, they were still a load of C****S.
