    Default MOT Runaround - What happens next?

    The Sun shone brightly for MOT day. The car had been recently serviced. I've checked all the bulbs and wipers, tyre pressures and fluids, just a quick wash before I set off.
    What can possibly go wrong?

    (does a clean car help the MOT process? Not sure, but they might take a bit more care of a clean car, who knows).

    So, I clean the wheels, get the mud off the lower bodywork, quick wash of the mid and upper sections, rinse, then chamois off to dry.
    Mini hoover inside the drivers side footwell, then walk around the car to admire my handywork with the drivers door open.

    It's time to head off to the MOT station, so feeling really confident now, I sling the chamois over my shoulder, close the drivers door, and ....

    .... well, what do you think happened next?

    Option A
    The handbraked released (because the owner hadn't correctly applied the sticker as required by the recall), the car rolled down the hill, owner chasing it, waving hands in the air, smashed into a store trolley, throwing that into the air into a skip, finally coming to rest in the local canal

    Option B
    Drove into the MoT station
    "Sorry, your appointment was at 09:30 and it is now 11:30" or "yesterday"
