Funny travelling story

A couple of friends and I where going on a roadtrip to Surfers Paradise. We decided to book a travel hire van for the trip. Being poor students we decided to go with the cheapest available. Being unorganised we went at last minute to discover our 'sleek, air conditioned, "NEW" and comfortable ride' was in actual fact a rusting orange comby van with a large picture of a naked woman on the back and an even bigger picture of skulls on the side. We had to use it, to which we recieved honks and whistles the whole way.
To make it worse, it broke down 100 km from our destination. We had to push it 25 km to the nearest petrol station. Meanwhile, a bus full of soccer players drove past, stopped, and reversed and the whole 16 players got out and helped.

They invited us on the bus to continue our trip and droppped us off. Thanks boys.
