For this gem I need to thank Natalie.
This video clip is hilarious and (whether the story is true or not) demonstrates the need to maintain a sense of humour, while being persistent, to achieve your ultimate objective. In this case getting a parking fine waived.
The clip is from the British TV Show “8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown”. Based on this clip, I’m off to download a few episodes to look for more gems like this!
