Went out for a bike ride today

Got home to find out my dad had given away my vintage bike to some guy across the road for a bunch of flowers and a bottle of malt.

That's it

    Gave it away for nothing actually. I'm just giving him the whiskey and flowers out of gratitude :lol:

    Go claim it back. It wasn't your dad's to give away, so it is theft on the part of your dad, and receiving stolen goods on the part of the recipient.
    To err is human, but to make a real balls up takes a super computer.

    No dishonesty so it's not theft.

    Defo need a bigger bottle tho!

    Oh, I get it. This isn't a real report. It's Wheezy indulging in crative writing.
