3. Off he goes to exchange it before they sell out They then tell him he must pay the difference it should be £59.00
4. While Rocky is arguing that the receipt states its a Veho HD camera @£29.00 they can not make him pay the difference
Little does he realise that while all this is going on he is being issued with a £60.00 parking ticket
5. On winning argument no.1 he then goes out to confront a smug traffic warden hence start of argument no.2
6. He then has to use all his Black Country charm to persuade the said traffic warden that he was only on half yellow and half white line and that he was parked in a bay. After taking pictures with his sons camera phone to argue his case in court the said traffic warden then agrees to withdraw the ticket leaving Rocky thankful that a £59.00 camera that he got for £29.00 didn't cost him another £60.00

The moral of this storey is don't mess with the Rock
not very often you feel sorry for a traffic warden

I've had a chance to take some video and whilst I'm happy with the video the sound has some background noise caused by the record button vibrating/rattle Anyone else had this?
