This f*cker was 3/4 into my tyre yesterday on the way to a 5 year old's Star Wars party.



A lucky escape in the end for two reasons. Firsty we were round the corner from a Kwikfit and half an hour and 25 later it was all patched up and, secondly, I decided at the last moment not to dress up myself...

I've no idea how you got a pound coin stuck in your tyre. Perhaps the street of London really are paved with gold?

People just chuck them away Michael as a pound is worth about a penny down here!

Those new pointy edged ones are going to be a nightmare.
Did you eat the bagels while you waited for it to be fixed? I assume that's why you could no longer dress up.

No - it's one of the 3% fakers.  Besides, Porter's column this month suggests that they are paved with sick.

I've had at least one puncture in every car I've owned, bar the current one. It'll get here eventually!
