Taking it up the wrong 'un.

My car.

Whilst driving back from NY City to NH yesterday to avoid the dangerous "nasty weather" that's happening today.

Somewhat ironic, eh? *

* Well, it was a mostly plastic bumper and at least I could still drive home, unlike the old biddy that rammed into me.

All home and well though. *Thumbs up smiley.

Indeed - things could've obviously have been much worse (think exiting a four lane motorway onto another and the speeds routinely involved) and at least a bit of the car will be clean and shiny in a week or so's time.

Can't say the same for the in-laws' underpants though.

The drive I did in a taxi from JFK to LES will never be forgotten. Americans call themselves civilised! That was something else. The taxi driver even did a detour through the Bronx!

A bloke drove off the motorway and onto the roundabout at Ponty week after I passed my test, clipped my back wheel arch and the front of her Nissan fell off. I kept going until I found a safe place to stop then walked back. As I approached his Mrs started going off on me for driving like a lunatic and leaving the scene of an accident. I explained my actions in driving on and told her I thought I was in the right as I was on the roundabout and their car entered at speed and hit me in the back. I told I was pretty sure it was in the highway code that you don't enter a roundabout unless it's clear to which she informed me, 'If we all drove to the highway code there'd be no end of accidents.' I felt for her husband.

LES via The Bronx is impressive.

My Uncle Dave got busted (as I believe they say over there) for Jay Walking. He's a geordie ex miner who's accent is incomprehensible to anyone south of Sunderland. I'd love to have been there.
