Where’s Frank* gone?

One of our dealers recently received a call from a concerned son regarding his father who was cooped up in his nursing home all of this time. “Mate, he won’t come out and it’s terrible, he’s just sitting there and slowly disappearing, can you do anything?”

Not one to shy away from a challenge, our fearless dealer said no problem; “One other thing” said the son. “He also suffers a little from incontinence and won’t speak to anyone about it. Any chance you can have a word?” Not exactly our guys area of expertise but off to the nursing home he went nevertheless.

After a chat with Frank our dealer realised this would take a little more work to get him out and about. “How long since you’ve had a beer Frank?”; “Do you enjoy a quiet beer Frank?”; “You could get out to the pub Frank.” With the deal sealed, he moved on to a touchier subject… Handled with equal diplomacy with our dealer explaining how easy it would be to solved and get on living life.

Frank’s shiny new Eureka Scoota was delivered and he got straight out and about. A short scoot to his local Frank pulled in just as a friendly group of young tradies arrived; “You fella’s don’t mind if I join you?”, no problem they replied! “So” said Frank, “do the old rules still apply to shouts?” They all looked at each other, what rules would those be? Frank explained, “Every time someone needs to visit the bathroom they buy the next round.” They smiled at each other, weighed up Frank and replied why not.

Our dealer was also enjoying his Friday night, a quiet one at home. The phone rang and it was the nursing home frantic that Frank was nowhere to be seen and it was 9 o’clock, did he have any idea where Frank might be? “Where’s your local, that’s where he’ll be.” Sure enough, as staffed rushed through the busy pub doors there was Frank perched on his Eureka Scoota holding court. In front of him was a confused bunch of tradies all a bit under the weather.

Frank scooted back home and now has a very strict 6:30pm curfew!

*Names have been changed to protect Frank’s reputation at his local.

Well he is 87! Hugh Hefner zooms around Disneyland on a mobility scooter… and wife Crystal, 27, gets one too!

Hugh and Crystal Hefnet are making the most of their time as newlyweds. Which, for the rather odd couple, involves travelling around Disneyland in style… on matching mobility scooteras.

Generous residents’ group donate mobility scooter to disabled Wirral dad.

A king-hearted group of neighbours have stepped in to help a Wirral dad whose vital mobility scooter was stolen by thieves.

Andrew Sim, from Prenton, told the Globe last week how he was left devastated when he discovered his scooter had disappeared from outside the building. It meant he had no means of transport and he said the theft had “taken away his legs” as he could become housebound.

However, after reading of Mr Sim’s plight, a residents’ association at Harvest Court in Moreton decided to donate their own mobility scooter out of their funds.

Russell Brand hyjacks Dorking mobility scooter…

Unpredictable comedian Russell Brand made a big entrance at his stand-up show in Dorking on Sunday night.

The Essex-born funnyman took an audience member’s mobility scooter for a spin around the Dorking Halls auditorium before launching into his Messiah Complex show.

And the sold-out performance clearly went down a storm with most audience members, if Twitter responses are anything to go by.
