Storyline

With hotel porter turned petrol pump assistant Michael staying at his house - since somebody stole his front door - Alan is asked to host a sales conference for a firm making coal-effect fires and is visited by their South African representative. Inevitably Alan attempts a South African accent which does not impress but he gets the job anyway. Unfortunately, on the way there he pierces his foot on a spiked fence which severely hampers the quality of his conference speech. Written by don @ minifie-1
