I've been without my car all week after wearing out my break pads. I took the car to the garage last Tuesday and it will be ready to pick up next Tuesday. That's how they roll here in Norway. They take their sweet friggin' time and it irritates the shit out of me. I used to drop off my car in London before work,get a service and the break pads changed, pick it up after work and hand over approx 170 pounds yet here I get to wait 7 days and hand over 1100 pounds for the same job.
Our cottage makes shit like this bearable-only just!
