Ha - a typical tale in these parts. I know the area well and sympathise. I once walked the 6 miles along the coast path from St. Ives to the pub at Zennor (it felt like 9) on a summer Saturday afternoon, bought a pint and thought that all was well with the world. On finishing the pint at about 6 p.m . I headed to the bus stop to get a bus back and found that the last bus had gone 30 minutes previously. reaching for my phone to order a taxi revealed no signal, and the phone box was non operative, as you describe. What dipstick thinks that a bus timetable like that is acceptable?That reminds me of being idown the far end of Cornwall coming back from the lands end hotel on the St Ives road at 1 ish on a winters night and breaking down in the middle of nowhere.
Grabbed my mobile and no signal, wifes the same so started of walking towadrs the St Ives direction came to a cross junction and on the corner i saw a light , thought great a phone box walked up to it and found sod all inside except a light
MOT day always makes me nervous. I drop my car off at opening time and usually he's on the 'phone around lunchtime to say it's ready. If I've not heard by early afternoon, then I start stressing.I'm Grumpy as my car is in for MOT today (UK government official legally required road safety test) and I've not heard after over an hour.
