This is a question Schadenfreude

There's nothing like administering first aid to cyclist who has just spanged into the back of a milk float when you have tears of laughter running down your face. The world is just one long episode of You've Been Framed - when have you laughed at the misfortune of others?

Park and Ride
Ex and I were sitting in the car waiting to go through the barrier of Canterbury Park and Ride, the car in front was just pulling up to the token machine.

Unfortunately the driver had stopped too far away from the machine to get his ticket. So we giggled a bit at the arm waving forlornly out of the car, desperately grasping at thin air.

We had given him plenty of room, if he had wanted to back up and realign the car he could have done so quite easily, but he didn't.

Oh no, he got the missus to get out of the passenger's side, walk round the back of the car, get his token for him and hand it to him. The barrier raised up, presumably on a timer, he drove forwards leaving her at the token machine. - We both looked at each other thinking "She's not going to.. is she?" Yes, she did.

She walked after her husband, timing her passage under the barrier perfectly. It descended onto her head with an audible *clonk* and part of the plastic covering snapped off and fell onto the road beside her. After seeing stars for a few moments and rather embarrassed, she quickly shoved the debris to the side of the road, and then tried to work out where the hell her husband had parked the car as he had completely buggered off now to find a space.

As it was a Park and Ride scheme, we then had to share a bus with them into the city centre, and unsurprisingly we were giggling the whole journey.
