Feeling Old

As I was filling up Bebop today, it occured to me that I'd been driving for over ten years.

And, in that time, petrol had almost doubled in price.

That made me feel very old. Especially as I found myself explaining to the sixteen year old behind the till that "back in my day, four star was only 54p a litre!"

Back in 1996, I was driving a lovely red Triumph TR7 called Tiffany. Sadly, they've double in price too. If only they'd doubled in reliability. Then maybe I'd have talked T into letting me have one!
