I was getting a couple of essential items today in that very well known supermarket, the one that's on the edge of world domination, when oh dear I had a bout of hardware failure. It was sort of my fault but I was leaning forward to get something and as a result of this was pressing down hard on my knees when my foot plate gave way! Like I said it was sort of my fault because Ive been fiddling about and changing the way its set up, and obviously I hadn't tightened the whole thing up hard enough. I'm used to a solid foot rest taking all my weight so this came as a bit of a surprise, and very awkward it was too. I couldn't lean forward enough to pull it back up so had to make my way slowly and gingerly out of the store and back to the car. I really really didn't want the whole thing scraping along the ground, but you know how you sometimes see a car slowly driving along with its exhaust hanging off? Well it was a bit like that. So I got back to the car, cursed quite a lot and decided Id have to head home to do some repairs as I don't routinely carry Allen keys and screwdrivers in my bag. Hmmm perhaps I should eh?
