This is a question Relief

Last week, I thought we'd run over and killed something. After steeling myself to get out and find the body of somebody's beloved pet, I found we'd squished a bin bag. When has something turned out not as grim as you first thought?

Bit of a pea
When I was camping in wales I was rudely disturbed from a post coitus nap by the girlfriend shrieking that the car had gone from outside the tent.
Popping my head out revealed that indeed the car had gone.

"How the hell could someone nick a clattery old Mini from right outside our tent without us knowing?"

Then as a cold chill went down my spine I recalled the slightly dodgy handbrake and the fact we were at the top of a hill with a whole load of other tents in below us.
Barely daring to look at the carnage I was expecting to see I peeked round the tent flap to see my car a good 100 metres away parked between 2 other tents with an arc of fresh tyre tracks leading from outside our tent to it's current destination.

I quickly ran down, retrieved the car before anyone could see what had happened and we vacated the place the same evening.

My car reversed itself off the drive like that once...
cos the missus hadn't put the handbrake on properly.

Fortunately she also hadn't straightened the wheel up, so it backed perfectly onto the road again instead of going across the road and into the neighbours' garden.

If there'd have been something coming though......

After years of owning dodgy Minis etc I always leave mine in gear - even on the flat.
