    .............a Mercedes Benz. So the song goes.
    Well I already have one of them so I think I will ask the Lord for a Sat-nav. Yesterday I had to collect ebay stuff from various locations in East Anglia. All went well with the first two and then I had to get from Clacton to Lowestoft, easy enough, straight up the A12. However I found myself in Felixstowe Docks.  Lord wont you buy me......... 2419626307  WTF I thought, have I been asleep? Or was it that blond bird in the Porsche that distracted me? U-turn back to A12 and get to Lowestoft now late. I had instructions written down, over the dock bridge, bear left at the roundabout, second road on the left. Simples. Except no fecking roundabout! I decide to take ever increasing circles until I discover the road as no 'locals' appeared to know. Half an hour later I find another bridge also going across the docks. Oh dear,  Lord wont you buy me......... 1498946960  never mind, only one hour and 10 minutes late now.
    Managed to find the final pickup in Fakenham without a problem. 281 miles google said the round trip would be, I clocked up 334............Also, next time take reading glasses so I can see a bleeding map. Sometimes I think I'm just too 'old skool' for my own fecking good.  Lord wont you buy me......... 3025408739

    You will be fine with a sat nav, as long as you make sure a woman is giving the directions.   Lord wont you buy me......... 294053457

    I had a built in one on a car once, woman kept telling me to turn, put me right off.  Lord wont you buy me......... 3025408739  Car even had a telly, trouble was it kept letting me down. Sold it on ebay in the end as a non runner, some muppet paid £500 for it. Jeez was I glad to see the back of that. Rover 75 it was, mainly BMW bits on it. Dont ever buy one.
