Will I ever get used to France not being in the 21st century yet – even after 17 years - No I don’t think so.
Just been to get some money out of the cash machine to pay the gardener and whilst I’m on route I’ve remembered that I’ve got one potato left and look, the petrol gauge is low.
There are two garages in close proximity, both without 24hr machines and ‘service operator’ assisted - so garage first I think – chain across the entrance. No good going to the other one either, they will be closed too. I must add that both of them close for lunch too.
OK no problem with the cash machine, although quite often this machine is temporarily offline and suggests we wait a few minutes – I have been known to wait for 10 minutes and still no reaction from the machine ! And isn’t always when the bank itself is shut !
Two mini-marts in close proximity – eh, no vegetable trays outside and blinds down !
What’s happening ?
It’s Monday isn’t it.
