OT AA recovery times

Can anyone better three minutes from the end of the phone call telling them the van had broken down and the recovery truck arriving?
It made last weeks wait of 15 minutes when the van last broke down look pathetic:-)

Sounds like you need a more reliable van?

Aye, check the small print. ISTR there is a fairly low limit on the number of calls outs you can have over a given period.

Last weekend my son + wife + 2yo + wife's friend broke down at Sandbach services at 1045 am. AA man attended & booked recovery. It finally arrived at 6pm and they were home at about 10.30pm. The driver told them that their booking had been initiated and cancelled twice.
We will know to ask next time whether Adam was the name of the rival recovery client.
Oh and the garage in London could find no fault, but changed the gearbox oil. It is automatic and a Renault.

I bet you didn't know AA patrols once gave Nazi salutes.

If you're breaking down that frequently, the AA are probably following you around.

I remember looking in the Sheringham lifeboat station, and they had been called out to rescue the same boat over 10 times in one month. It was always engine trouble. I never knew how it resolved itself. Did the lifeboat crew pay for an engine overhaul? Or did they take a sledge hammer to the engine, so the guy ruining their lives couldn't put to sea?

I've done a number of flotilla holidays in the South Ionian Sea. The crew of the lead boat have defined responsibilities and the engineer (usually called the "engo") deals with problems below decks on the boats in the flotilla.
At the first briefing you are given detailed instructions on use of the "heads" (WCs - with very tight rules on what you can and can't put down them) and told "The engo will deal with the first blockage The engo will supervise you dealing with the second blockage If there is a third blockage, the engo will give you a bucket"

Last time I broke down - broken fan belt which I'd normally carry a spare for - I gave up waiting after an hour and a half. In central London at approx 1 am. They said they couldn't find me. Despite being stopped on Holland Road right beside the street name sign.
The AA refunded my year's subscription, and I haven't bothered with any breakdown service since.
