I went to start my car and the battery was deader than a door nail, flatter than a crepe suzette, as lifeless as a grain of sand. So what do you do? You call the Automobile Association to give the said battery a kick in the guts and to put some spark into it.
George has AA membership (not to be confused with Alcoholics Anonymous, and in this instance it refers to the Automobile Association of NZ). So once he was home from work we rang them, and they said it was a busy time and we could expect someone here within the hour. Well it actually got to two hours. When we have used them before a cheery serviceman turns up in his ute or vehicle, covered with the AA logo. We heard the sounds of a very loud vehicle motor outside and were greeted with the below sight. For a flat battery! Complete with a car on the back. I guess any contractor will do?
