This car is going to run out of petrol. I just don’t know when.

When I worked the markets in the South Wales Valley, I had this amazing old Fiat 128. I loved it. But it had one or two quirks.

The key one was the petrol gauge didn’t work. I didn’t know if it was nearly empty or completely full.

So when I did a market, I was super keen to sell so I would have money to fill the car up full with petrol so I could relax. On days when I didn’t sell, and there was too many of those, I wasn’t sure if I would make it home. I did my fair share of walking home.

I learnt to drive in that car. And, more importantly, I learnt the importance of selling.

Yup, always be shipping.
