accidental tourist

tags: , , , , , , , ,

1.00pm 13th August

Riding along, following my instructor, I drove too fast into a bend and ended up punching the curb. Not a good move.

A conscientious paramedic was on the scene within 10 minutes followed by 2 police cars because this was a Road Traffic Accident (RTA).

The police apologised for breathalising me. I was being way too sensible to be drunk. Not even a hint of last night’s glass of wine was hanging around.

Instructor: you should call your partner, get ‘em to pick you up from the hospital

wendy: I’m on holiday alone, I don’t have a partner and my family all live on the west coast, so there’s no-one nearby to call. I’ll be able to find a bus to get me out of hospital

    Ouch! I do hope everything’s OK now?

    I crashed once, years ago – second hand car, slightly lacking in the brake department. I got breathalysed too – mandatory after any accident, apparently. Nobody hurt, though I’ve barely driven since (the car was a write-off and I never replaced it).

    No, no, no… when on own, this sort of situation warrants a licenced taxi cab to take you door to door. You have suffered enough not to endure a bus ride.

    Hiya Scarlet, there was no local door for a Taxi cab to go to. The YHA was a bit far Arundel) my PJ’s are still there until I send them a stamped-addressed envelope. …

    MIND HOW YOU GO.

    And I would normally never say ***** but that is my security word, so ***** it is.

    P.S. I am doing a giveaway, visit my blog and leave a comment. Looks like you could use something positive to happen to you.
