Friendly helpful and very efficient = Kwik-Fit.

I picked up a puncture this past week. My rear right tyre got screwed (literally). A lonely 18mm screw decided to lodge itself deep into my tyre.   There is a joke in here somewhere if I put a little more thought into this post. 😉

Fortunately I was able to drive on the tyre without much air escaping, but had decided to take it into Kwik-fit and have them look at it.  Our local Kwik-Fit is in London Road (next to Brent School), Stone DA2 6AS,  but here is a short breakdown of events this morning.

  • 8:45am – Called Kwik-Fit and explained to Matt the problem. Matt was very helpful and mentioned the tyre might be able to be repaired, but I should bring it in for a check and peace of mind. He also told me the price for a repair and new tyre. He told me I could bring in my car now.  I told him I would be there in 15 minutes.
  • 9:00am –  Drove my car onto the ramp.
  • 9:01am – 9:14am – Matt removed the screw from the inner wall,  unfortunately it could not be repaired, so a new tyre was put on (the same as all my other 3 month old tyres. Sad but true, we only just replaced them).
  • 9:15am – Paid and drove home.
  • 9:20am – Home.

I couldn’t ask for a better service. We have always had our tyres replaced by Kwik-Fit and it is for this reason alone they are the best in the business.

Eat and drink at the PKR table.

I logged into PKR after a 6 month hiatus from online poker and I see they have a new version 2.09, which allows one to eat and drink at the table. There is nothing like tucking into a hot dog or sipping an ice cold beer when it is your turn to play to create that little extra tension at the table. The actions are so life like and the annoyance of the other players, well priceless. 🙂 There are also new chip tricks and a whole bunch of new clothes.

Check out the video showing off the new features.
