Wow. He's not even American.
 
2020-03-29 6:33:09 PM  
She got to ride home in the boot? LUXURY!
 
2020-03-29 7:07:02 PM  
And felt bad about having to travel to get a car back.

In his defense.
You are never going to see better prices in your life than the ones in an epidemic shutdown.

He put his wife in the trunk to make space for windows?  Sounds like he's a real pane in the ass.
 
2020-03-29 7:14:29 PM  
Doesn't say anything about him *forcing* her to do it.  They seem like a harmonious couple, with a real mutual appreciation of windows.

This is a survivor. You people cowering in fear remember this, and worship him like the God he is.
 
2020-03-29 7:16:09 PM  
So they did not know the size of the windows they bought - or their car - till they got there?
 
2020-03-29 7:16:55 PM  
Oh. England. Yeah, they think 200 miles is a long trip.
 
2020-03-29 7:17:26 PM  
So did she then have to walk the rest of the way home?

Know the difference between a wife and a dog? Lock them both in the "boot" of a car for two hours. When you open it, the dog will be happy to see you.
 
2020-03-29 7:19:09 PM  
That sounds like a lot of windows for 15 pounds.

This is true.

Mitt Romney's dog is not amused.

He was heard to say "I was always attempting to get her in the trunk"

My wife won't put up with me putting her in the boot.

A man forced his wife to wear his boots and the police gave him a web browser as punishment.

Sometimes I don't understand other countries at all.

It used to fit on a few 3.5" floppies, now it takes up 20% of your new hard drive regardless of its size.

Waaaaaay back in the day I worked at good ol' Crappy Tire. About once a day I'd carry some bulky item out to a customer's car for them only to see it was a Honda Civic hatchback and they expected a shower surround to fit in there.
 
2020-03-29 7:44:10 PM  
I told you windows was no good.

We had 2 people show up for a free upright piano in something similar.

Even if they had a pickup they'd have a hard time lifting the damn thing. My grand weighs over 700 pounds. Uprights are lighter but still it's not like you just lift with your knees and everything's ok.

The remaining members of Monty Python probably wish that they had thought of it.

Several years ago I came out of a Best Buy to find a sales associate with a large flat screen TV on a cart.  He was standing next to the guy that had just bought it.
That guy was looking at his car and making hand motions about how it would fit in or on the car.
The car was a Corvette.

"pane in the rear" would have been even better.

Wife found in car boot after man drives 220 miles to pick up windows in coronavirus lockdown

Someone should have told him he could just download it from Microsoft.

cretinbob: Wow. He's not even American.


Stupid knows no border.
 
2020-03-29 8:14:31 PM  
Meh. I drove 250 mile return trip during the lockdown. It was awesome, the roads were empty of all the assholes that make usual journeys a complete bind.

Managed a 2 hour journey in an hour and a half
 
2020-03-29 8:31:19 PM  
He should have used a lorry.

What do you expect from people that drive on tyres?

I put the crumpets I ordered on my mobile from the takeaway in my bonnet. What more do you want?

But he was in Cheshire, penny pinching farkers in Alderley Ledge. I suppose that's why they have money.

Madman drummers bummers: Oh. England. Yeah, they think 200 miles is a long trip.


To an American 100 years is a long time,
To an Englishman 100 miles is a long way

Why did she go with him in the first place?

Benny Hill had a kinda-related joke a long time ago.

NephilimNexus: Why did she go with him in the first place?


It was a 400 mile trip! He might get sleepy and she'd have to take over.
Like the time my brother and I took an 1100 mile round trip for a concert. He drove there, I drove back. It was a long day. Good concert though.

I imagine the thought of an 1100 mile trip in one day would give the average Englishman an aneurysm.
 
2020-03-30 12:48:55 AM  
Well, he was from Coventry.
