Sometimes things happen that you just have to laugh at. Today I left work for lunch, and got in my car. We parallel park on quite a busy road, and I was facing in the wrong direction so decided to turn in the road rather than driving further up and turning at the roundabout. I waited for some cars to pass and then began my manoeuvre, only to get half way though and have a massive land rover speed up towards me. I carried on, as by this time I had more than started the motion, and if he wasn’t speeding I would have finished the process before he had reached me. I straightened my car, and as I went past, I signalled thank you with my hand. I was adjacent to their car, and noticed it was an older couple, in their sixties or seventies. I was appalled therefore, when the passenger, a genteel looking lady, gave me the finger.
