I had to find the garage bowabs to move all the cars so my car could get out and then the driver turns up at 6.25, 5 minutes into my journey he tells me the car needs fuel.. I tell him I have no money on me for fuel so we have to turn the car around and go back to my apartment to collect money. Now he has been sitting all day waiting to take me out at 6,15.. in my book the car should be ready and fuel topped up it shouldn't all be done once I am in the car. I have just been dropped off and he asked me if I needed him in the morning.. he starts at 11am as he wants to go an vote.. he couldn't go and vote before coming to work nor can he vote after.. he will finish at 4.. he has to vote during his short working day.
We have a car, but is rarely used by me, now that husband can't drive. I rely on a local guy here to drive us now, I really can't stress how "stressful" driving is for me here.
Anyways, after having this same thing done to me several times, I now adjust my "leave" time and tell him a half hour earlier, than I really need him. That way he can just sit there and wait for us if he is early, or else if he is late, which happens lots, he is usually here when we really want to go, if that makes any sense?
