OK, the new (to me) car is ready to pay the main money on Friday morning and pick up after saying goodbye to the old car at a nearby car breaker. One problem. I have money in the bank but the payment processing firm have glitch and the transaction fails part way through so the money in my account is now reserved for the transaction so can't be used until the cancellation comes through, hopefully by Tuesday. I then ring the bank and ask about another option which is for the seller to request a cancellation of the transaction and am told faxing the instruction through will get it done quickly. Quickly apparently means something else in banking terms so I am hiring a small car on Tuesday to make sure I can get to work where a number of employers who are recruiting will be in. My fluffiness level isn't too good on this one. At least I should be driving around again mid/late week.
