One summer's evenng young Snellgrove gets a bloodbank job,to his great surprise,its going to Bangor,a couple of hours later Snell phones Metros office to tell the operator that his cab is overheating,Ste Ready then tells him"when you've dropped the blood off,let the engine cool down then fill it with water"a few phone calls later then Snell phones and says"with all the worrying about the cab overheating,i've just noticed i'm low on juice".
A few phone call's more and Snell say's"i'm at a garage(it's 4am by the way)but it doesn't open till 6am,the nearest 24 hour one is twenty miles away and i haven't enough juice to get their".
6am,Brian phones metro's office(the owner of the cab)"Snelly's brokedown in Bangor"
Bri:"what shall i do"
Ste:"i'd wait till Andy comes in at 7am and ask to borrow the tow truck".
So Bri goes to Andy's house to ask if he can borrow the tow truck,Andy tells him it only does something stupid like 5mpg,but says,tell ye what phone the AA tell them it's one of my cabs and they'll tow it in for you.
In the meantime the police are with Snell and they want the cab moving cos it's causing an obstuction,so they get it towed off the main road and i tink Brian has to pay for it.
But the good news is Snell fially arrived back home,safe and sound at 3pm on the back of an AA van..................................
(This is the first story i've heard of this episode and i've wrote it without talking to snell,so i'll update it when i have moore news)
Spoke to Snell he said this account of the story is near enough,but early hours(7am i think)the cab was towed off the main road and snell was left to fend for himself in the new strange world of wales,at 8am he found a tesco's with a cafe in in but when he went in he found it closed,"what time does the cafe open he asked""9am came the reply"on fealing sorry for himself the snell blurted out"listen love,i'm a taxi driver from bootle,my cab broke down last night,i've had no sleep,im stikin,starved,can i please just have a sandwich and a bottle of water and i'll be on my way"on hearing this the welsh wiman replies"are you stupid,i told ypu it doesent open till 9am"
so the snell went off on one big time(as ye do)told her she was a welsh slut and the likes,neadless to say he never got his sarnie's and water,but what can ye do?????????
