They said he had foresight.
The gleaming machines were lined up ready for business, and in a city where cars, trams, buses and taxis were banned, the only way to get around was on two wheels.
He was smug in his conceit for being one step ahead of his rivals.
He had snapped up this fleet of mopeds in readiness, and could charge more or less as much as he wanted as he owned the franchise for a ten mile radius.
Yes, they said he had foresight.
It didn’t hurt having a relative in the local council’s transport department though.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Talk about a racket! Having a monopoly on transportation can have a crippling effect on the population and their ability to find alternatives to the local status quo. Very challenging issues presented that also reflect present challenges in our societies. Wonderful submission — I’m so glad you joined us again this week ❤
