I have just had a call.OH and his mate have just been to see Uzzi on the island in a big van to pick up some furniture,

Back at the ferry port,in the queue,they have stepped in the back to see that the stuff was alright and the van doors have blown shut on them!

I have had to ring Wightlink who have had to contact the port who,naturally thought it was a wind-up,to ask the staff to let them out.

Just waiting for a call to say they are out.

I wish I had been there to see it

:-D :-D :-D


Sharron Report 25 Nov 2012 14:24

They are out!

I did ask Wightlink to give it a couple of weeks but ,I suppose the smell would have been too much to bear and his mate might not have fancied eating him,i certainly don't.

Well I sympathise with the locked-ins.
Glad they are out.

Daughter and I got locked in the grounds of a high-walled castle last week and had to ring for help.
It might have been a long cold night, but we too were released.

Never mind what was awaiting them when they stepped out.

Guess what's awaiting him when he gets home!
