  1. walked by the bank of scotland to-day and the hole in the wall was beeping there was a £10 note stuck in it i've handed it into the bank i'd imagine if the person who has lost it goes in stating the time they used machine it will get returned
  2. sorry I confused it a bit (I've calmed down a wee bit now) I said I didn't need the catalistic converter bit as I had decatted it last time I replaced the exhaust the exhaust came to about £400 + vat then the extras labour was only £36 hubby things he was told £250 + fitting as vat wasn't mentioned we assumed that was included in price if he had said £250 +vat + fitting we would have done it ourself for £235 a bit of a difference also unfortunately it's been paid
  3. phoned lerwick garage regarding a price for my peugeot partner-combi car said i didn't need a cat and was told £240/£250 to-day it was fitted and i was charged just over £500 ok they did an extra small job charged £24+vat for that but surely any GOOD retailer would let the customer know that the goods are double what was originally quoted so the customer could source from else where p.s. i could have got of ebay for £235 and hubby would have fitted but thought give local business the trade

  10. do you know the price of fuel in shetland some of us cannot afford to travel without a specific reason (i.e. food medical or collecting something necessary ) the council could have specific old quarries designated to depositing bulky unwanted articles for disposal outside the usual skips then they could collect when the amount was worth while if the cut backs continue we will be back to the old days of the nearest cliff and let the sea claim the (bruck)
