Overworked donkey puts on brave face to make meeting

Ewan McGregor  as Renton in Trainspotting - the gender neutral toilets Zella has visited are almost as grubby

ZELLA COMPTON: Men – just aim it in the right direction and we’ll all be happy!

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.
