Default Opps - I worked this week and look what happened

Did a part-time job for Wetherspoons - 18Tonner with a long rear overhang.

Went to London, and one place I had to pull out of a driveway well some idiot placed a wall in my way.

Felt real bad about it - Now able to look back and think - LUCKY its not my beemer

Oh well, the guy who ownes the BMW will get a nice payout

1st Accident I have had in 19-years and touch wood my last......







On a side note - The Copper who attended said to me:

I think we should give the owner of the BMW a ticket for being a little over-weight on the rear end

Oops!

Were the cops annoyed or could they see that it was all unintentional?

And did ya get to meet the Beemer owner? and were they parked illegally cos it looks like they are on the footpath/pavement.

I had to deliver the truck to a client, the address they gave was not marked, but it was 4 doors down from the corner, well I reversed up the drive, got out and was told it is next door.

As I drove out there are bollards on my left so was watching them and as the rear swinged it just touched the wall.

Was like watching a slow video, it swayed and then BINGO - fell down.

Yes the car was on the footpath. what the insurance do - well its up to them.

The boss at wetherspoons said to me, Oh Well Sh..... Happens
