Waiting For The RACQ"

Sheila was going to visit her Mum for her Birthday on the following weekend, taking the Friday afternoon train, so, on Monday, Sheila enquired of Bill whether he would drive her to the railway station on Friday and, because the car had not been started for a considerable period, if it would start.
Bill’s answer was..“Yeah, she’ll be right!”
Friday morning, Sheila asked Bill again, if the car would start, again, Bill’s answer was…“Yeah, she’ll be right!” But….. when Bill went out to start the car, just to satisfy Sheila that ….“she’ll be right”.. it wasn’t, the car would not even turn over, there wasn’t any charge in the battery, it was totally dead.
Bill now had to find a way of getting the battery out of the car so that he could take it up to the garage and get it charged up; but for the life of him Bill was unable to remove the battery, he tried all the nuts and bolts, to no avail, Bill was now getting very upset with the whole situation, he threw the spanners to the ground, in anger, wiped his oily hands on his belly and, in desperation, grabbed hold of the battery with both hands and gave an almighty wrench, with that, the offending battery flew out of the engine bay and landed behind Bill, complete with the cable.
Bill stood back and surveyed the scene, walked over and kicked the battery, then went to the fridge and got a beer and lay down on the sun lounge, lit a smoke and had a look at the weekend racing guide.
Sheila was unmoved by the whole incident, she has seen it all before, she just went on quietly knitting, safe in the knowledge that she had already rung the Automobile club the day before…….the RACQ is due any minute.
