    Default You never know who is behind you

    My brother the other night hit a pot hole in his beemer,pulled over to find one tyre punctured and one split and both alloys "done" he changed one wheel having to use his BMW tool kit screw driver to line up the wheels,just as he finished another car pulled up behind him with the driver asking did you hit the pot hole to ?,[the other car also had two tyres punctured].Brother finished and drove off not till he got to work he realised that he had not picked up the screw driver,he stopped on the way home but could not find it,that evening he went on line to track down a replacement.the door bell rings when he answered it ,chap at the door says remember me?,it was the same person who had pulled up behind him that morning !??,how did you know were I lived ? brother asks,I am a policeman and I was in a un marked car [Vectra] so I could not say to much was the reply,My brother has already been in contact with Essex county council about a claim for the wheels and tyres,the guy gives him his card turns out he is the Commander [no less] of operations back up for essex police based on boreham airfield,and says that he his on the ECC road safety commitee and if there is any trouble with the claim to contact him !,
    You could not get a better witness than that !

    Default

    Back in 1999 we were on holiday in Florida and were driving to visit relatives who were staying down the Gulf coast in Sarasota about 140 miles away from Orlando.

    At the time my wife was sat in the back of the hire car as our youngest was only about 13 months old so i had to talk to her over my shoulder and look in the rear view mirror to make eye contact.

    Anyway, we were talking away minding our own, when all of a sudden - BANG ! I'm sure we got airborn !
    To the left of us was a black car swerving violently with steam coming from the front.
    Oh-bu99er !, i thought i'd hit him as i was looking into the rearview mirror .

    Turns out that the guy driving the other car had hit a big black WILD BOAR running across the motorway !
    The boar flew across us and i drove over it !!! Hence why i thought we'd got airborn !

    To get to the point of this, our car was sha99ed and so was the other guys !

    Turns out that the other guy was a gaffer at Dollar car rental in central Florida (our car was a Dollar car) so we had a replacement sent to us within 25 minutes with a full tank of fuel and upgraded to a top end motor !
    We went from a Crysler Neon (SHI7E) to a Crysler 300C.
    Whats the chances of a Dollar gaffer being involved ?
    Just glad it was him as we were miles from nowhere and i hadn't got a clue what to do as i had no phone with me !

    WARNING:-
    NEVER EAT ROADKILL !!! UNLESS YOU HAVE BREAD AND SAUCE


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
