That was a very entertaining read Mr Sharkey. Every 6 months when I have to take my car for it's Warrant of Fitness checkover, I have the same feeling you did.
While watching the testing officers going over my car with a fine-tooth comb I scream "NO NO NO NO NO NO!" inside my head.
It gets louder when I watch one of the officers find something "interesting" under my car and gets another testing officer to have a look then they shake their heads. Ugh, what a stressful time watching this. I'm not looking forward to the Tredia's first Warrant of Fitness inspection. There's half a tonne of rust hidden in that car!
Every 6 months Kiwis have to go through this ordeal... I swear NZ Governments secretly hate the automobile.
