I thought you were going to talk about Anglia Fixings that were on Watchdog tonight!  I have heard of Dropped "H"  but not Dropped "S"

Re: They don't build Porches like they used to

Heard this story a while back:
Two men knock on the back door of this large house. The owner opens the door and enquires what the men want.
"We heard you wanted your porch painting". "Yes" said the owner. "There's some creosote in the shed and I'm off for a walk to the shops. Be back in an hour".
An hour later the owner is back, the men have finished and are sitting on the back step. The owner pays them the agreed amount and they go on their way. As they leave one of them turns and says to the owner. "By the way, my mistake. It's not a porch it's a Ferrari" Shocked

But thats over double what some of us pay for car insurance in a year though - guess thats why the costs keep going up!
Not blaming the guy - accidents happen, but whichever way you look at it, its an expensive one!
