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.

Parking woes...
I'm sure we've all done it - parked up in a multi-storey car park, and wandered off, safe in the knowledge you've memorised what floor and the location of the car etc.

T'was September 19th last year (that's 'Talk Like A Pirate Day'), and I had a date with the lovely Wendy. And so, off I drove to Cambridge to meet her, parked up, met up and a great evening was being had.

At one point, Wendy went off to check out the facilities and I sat there wondering why everyone was dressed as pirates - then it dawned on me :)

And so, if you really want to make an impression on a date, I suggest the following:

1) When your date returns from the loo, talking like a pirate without first explaining why causes some confusion...
2) At the end of the date, failing to find your car in a car park (even if it is a big green Galaxy nicknamed 'Shrek'), spending 10 minutes going up and down levels then finding it parked not 10 feet from your date's car doesn't put you in a good light...

I lost the bloody thing in long stay parking at Stansted one time too - how can anyone lose something that big and ugly? Twice.

I lost one of mine in a car park for the best part of half an hour.
naturally I was in the wrong park. The blasted thing was on the other side of a narrow street between the parks. It was dark when I got there and even darker when I left, if that's any excuse.
