Officer Brownlow was taking George’s statement having arrived on the scene some five minutes before.
He moaned
‘All I said was ‘You can’t park that there’, and the driver angrily got back behind the wheel and drove off. The next thing I knew there was this almighty crash behind me, and it was parked in my wall!’
‘So what happened next?’
‘She came to the wall all sheepish like and said she’d forgotten it was an automatic.’
Brownlow tried not to snort with suppressed laughter.

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.

    Funny story, and great photo.

  2. Lol πŸ˜‚ Forgot it was an automatic! I don’t blame the officer. I would have struggled to keep my snorting under control too

  3. neilmacdon says:

    Forgotten. Yeah, right

  4. granonine says:

    Was she telling the truth? Or maybe a little passive-aggression going on there πŸ™‚

  5. Did she offer to pay George for the wall?

  6. Hahaha! That was a good trick to slam an automatic through the wall! Love it!

  7. GHLearner says:

    Oops. Forward, backward, what’s the difference, right?

  8. Nobbinmaug says:

    I think I would do that trying to drive a manual. It’s been a long time. Do they still make manual transmissions?

  9. Dale says:

    Buahahaha! That is hilarious! Excellent, Di!

  10. A dialogue totally believable.

  11. Dear Di,

    I can’t stand driving an automatic. πŸ˜‰ Cute story.

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

  12. …and that’s why I won’t drive an automatic. I swear they have minds of their own and like nothing more than playing tricks on their drivers!

    Here’s mine!

  13. It would be hard not to laugh
