re locking wheel nuts

got this off one of the scooter forums
not in the best of taste but funnyish

For those of you that have wheels that people might nick, locking wheel nuts are a must.
But where do you keep them????

We sent one of our younger lads Pea-head on a breakdown today, blowout.
All he had to do was take the wheel off and bring it back for a new tyre.
But when he got there, the car was a black Ford Galaxy, tinted windows, alloys etc.
he asked the suited driver for the locking wheel nut key,
"oh, it in the back of the car, under the floor".
"but I have a load on, can you help me move it'.
The load had to be moved to gain access to the panel, for the lock nut.

Anyway, long and short of it is.

THEY lifted the DEAD old lady out, and placed her out of the car, got the locking wheel nut and then placed her back

Now Pea-head knows what a 'private ambulance' is
And the driver knows to keep his locker in the glovebox from now on.
