Diz Posted May 9, 2015 Share Posted May 9, 2015 Hiya all, it's been a while as my life turned upsidedown, but still driving and loving my Scoob. The bottom line question is how much a replacement key for a WR1 would cost, but here's a bit of background for those who like a story/rant. BF and I both got made redundant at the same time and are now running a powder coating workshop (and we're very good, if I do say so myself!), but it's still a young business so I took a part-time job supporting people with learning disabilities in their own home to make sure we have a known amount of regular cash coming in. The folks are great but the long shifts can be draining. Today I was working with two people who share a house, one of whom who has recently obtained a young dog (pic from 4 months ago) with no discipline whatsoever as some of the other staff spoil him. Noting that I am an animal lover with a dog and four cats myself, all mannerly and obedient - yes, the cats too, one of them even does 'Sit - Paw' I could have cheerfully booted this disobedient bundle of cuteness into orbit even before he took my car key out of the pocket of my jacket (seriously) that was hanging on the back of a chair and chewed off a good chunk of the rubber. I know better than to leave things lying even on a dinner table when this wretch is afoot, but didn't expect this. Needless to say I'm really hacked off, the dog might as well have put a brick through my car window. If only he'd chosen my lighter instead... Can anyone let me know roughly how much it would cost to get the key replaced please? I plan to claim it from their house insurance - as if I need one more headache to deal with. Before anyone remarks on how mean that is, just to put it into perspective I am working part-time for crap wages that we barely scrape by on whilst between them they have amassed over £50k in savings on higher rate DLA and could afford a pedigree dog costing £900 without batting an eyelid, so any rise in insurance premium isn't going to break the bank. Yours lividly, Diz xx ps I am presently diving head first into a richly deserved barrel of wine after a 24-hour 'sleep'over shift whilst suffering sleep deprivation... please excuse if I've gone OTT. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
