As Storm Bridget lashes the country with torrential rain and hundred mph winds, 18 year old Terenure girl Sorcha O’Gorman is having a total ‘mare with her 2013 Mini Cooper Convertible,
writes Gerry McBride.
A gift for her last birthday, arts student Sorcha opted for the 29,000 euro vehicle due to it’s fuel efficiency, safety rating and how totes amazeballs it would look when her and her bessies went cruising around in the Summer. All of these features have served her well, but the past few days have taken their toll on Sorchas usual cheerful disposition.
“Oh my God, yesterday was the WORST day of my LIFE“, veruca’d Sorcha.
“Me and the gorls had tickets to the rugby in the Avives, and I said I would totally drive. What nobody BOTHERED to tell me was about like, the weather? We were halfway there in the Mins and we like, almost couldn’t even hear each other? The wind was like, oh my God. SO. LOUD. The canvas on the roof of my connie was like, rattling ALL THE WAY there”.
Life continued to grind Sorcha down this morning when she discovered that a night of ceaseless rain had made it’s way through through the roof of her cherished automobile.
“There was like, WET on the SEATS“, groused the enfant terrible. “I only found out when I had SAT in it. Look at my clothes! They’re ruined!”
“Why can’t people build cars that are suitable for Winter as well as Summer? This is totes unacceptable. How can people be expected to live like this? All I wanted was a car to drive to town in without getting wet. This is so UNFAIR“
Discovering that she was unable to sue anyone over the bad weather, Sorcha has agreed to keep the Convertible as long as she is bought another car, more suitable for Winter use. Her father has agreed.
