Awesome story skipperman, by far the best one in this whole thread. A lot of these stories about pranks are juvenile at best and while they seem funny a lot of them can or have lead to injury and or property damage that can get out of hand and in the end is not funny at all. As well the stories of employees of service garages messing with customer cars are nothing at all to be proud of and say more about their character ( or lack of it ) than anything they could ever say about a "bad" customer. We have all enjoyed the odd innocent joke or prank but a lot of what has been posted here does not fall into that category. Your story is a breath of fresh air, sorry for the loss of your sweetheart.
