This is a question Cars

"Here in my car", said 80s pop hero Gary Numan, "I feel safest of all". He obviously never shared the same stretch of road as me, then. Automotive tales of mirth and woe, please.

Wally of the Week Award #452
When I used to work at Marconi's in Basildon, there were a few large builds spread around. The building with the canteen was about a 10 minute walk from our building.

One particularly wet lunch-time, an apprentice in my department announced he was driving down to the canteen for a change, as it was pouring with rain.

An hour later he turns up soaked. We asked why.
"It's raining" he replied in a sultry tone.
"But you took your car to avoid getting wet" I said.

The look on his face was priceless. He'd forgotton he'd driven down and had walked back. Now he had to walk back again to pick his car up!

It was almost as good as when people left their sunroof open. They came in via the back door, which was locked when work started. If it rained, you could see the inside of their car getting wet, but they'd have to run all around the (large) building to get to it.

Hearing "Oh bugger!" when they noticed it was raining ment you had a good few minutes to line up by the windows, to see a wet, breathless loon run up to their car furiously trying to close the windows.

If they'd forgotten their keys it was even better :-)
