Where I stayed
Now this is no lie but the bloke i spoke to at the garage the night before was called RANDY. I can now say i have met a Randy.Well Randy was not in today so his colleague helped me.Guess what? his name was CHIP... just leaves me a Brad, Chuck and a Ken now to meet.The tires were waiting there for me so in the pimp mobile went to be made better. This is when i got passed a message from Chip from National car hire.COULD I BRING THE OLD TIRES WITH ME !!!!! sorry say that again. Yep. i was to drive 4000 miles in a convertible with two 15" tires in my car. They are having a laugh. So i phoned them up and politely told them where they can keep the tires and it was not in my car.No they still wanted them. So once again i asked to speak to the manager. What it turned out was their arse is not talking to their elbow
Well with the car fixed i was on my way to Memphis to see if Elvis is working at the local drive-Thur. I have still not eating with that company but i have found a fantastic replacement. Its called Sonic Drive Thu. U pull up to a stall and there are about 20 of these stalls. You press the button and order your food. Then some dolly bird comes out on skates and delivers your order.GREAT !!! i have now got a good plan in action. I order my food realize i have want a drink and order a large iced coffee. So i get served twice by the roller girls. I do think we need something like this at home.
Now i said could today get any worse than yesterday.After all the car was fixed and i was only 10 miles out of Memphis and cruising at 85 MPH. Yep it could.FLASHING BLUE LIGHTS.. SHIT !!! Now i knew i could not out run them so i decided to hide between a line of trucks.Great right.NOPE !!! the bastards pulled out and left me a sitting duck. So i had to accept defeat and pull over. Out stepped the State highway patrol and in a typical drool asked for " your license and vehicle details sir " on came my best accent
Well i got into my hotel early so i decided to head towards Graceland and see if the KING was home. This is where i hit Memphis rush hour. It took me over a hour and a half to drive 18 miles and by the time i got there it was too late as the last tour starts at 4pm. SHIT!!!!!! so all i got was a few pictures of his airplanes and the sign for Graceland. This is why i am not doing sight seeing on this trip.Its to much hassle.
Well with nothing else to do i decided to go out and head towards the local Wall-Mart and have a walk round retail heaven. This is where i had the bright idea of dyeing my hair.Why not never dyed my hair before so as my hair is getting long i thought lets go blonde. So after years of doing Hayley's hair i was an expert at dyeing so i decided on going Bright Blonde. At worse all it would do was go light brown.RIGHT !!!! nope it ended up like straw color with a hint of ginger in it.Hopefully in the morning it will look a bit better.after all it needs to settle down and sure a bit of water and gel it will look better..BLOODY HOPE SO!!! i don't want to be a GINGER!!!!
