Overworked donkey puts on brave face to make meeting

LAWRENCE MURPHY: A worthy alternative to roasties?

Have your say

Iwas stuck in traffic earlier this week sweating it out in my silver Hyundai, when it started shaking. I pulled over thinking it had over-heated.

When I set off, it started doing it again so I went to a garage about a mile from where I needed to be for a meeting. The mechanic said the car was misfiring and if I left it they’d take a look.

I was wearing a dress, killer heels and was loaded with bags. So I did what any girl would do – I sucked it up and started walking down the road.

By the time I got to the meeting, 45 minutes late, sweating, dress crumpled and stuck to all the wrong places, I was limping with about 10 blisters on each foot, had make-up running down my face and looked like an overworked donkey. The meeting didn’t go much better either.
