Pound coin you dropped down the gap between the driver's seat and bulkhead is mocking you



A pound coin you dropped down the side of your car seat is openly mocking you and there’s nothing you can do about it.


It made its move at McDonald's drive-thru window last Thursday while you were counting out the cash for your order.


As you passed it over to the spotty youth, the pound made its move and leapt from your hand before disappearing down the narrow crack between the edge of your seat and the dividing bulkhead.


Despite pissing off everybody in the queue for a full three minutes as you desperately tried to retrieve it, in the end you were forced to admit defeat and reluctantly pay by card instead.


Service Technician Dave Clifford explains. ‘Modern cars are designed so that if you do drop anything between the seats, it can never be retrieved without having special tools to dismantle the whole front half of your cockpit. More often than not that's going to be a total rebuild, sometimes costing thousands.'


You remain adamant you will somehow get the pound, but Dave only cackles manically: ‘Mwuhahaha! Yeah, you try, squire. You haven't a hope. End of.'
