Default One lucky guy

Snipped from BBC news

A traffic warden has been warned he could face prison for jabbing a motorist in the eye and then punching him.
David Jones, 40, was found guilty of assault causing actual bodily harm on businessman James Wardle.

Mr Wardle of Knowsley Village told magistrates: "I felt disgusted. If it had been a person in the street it would have been bad, but for a traffic warden, I was amazed.

"He is lucky that it is a false eye because otherwise he could have blinded me."

Wow, he really was lucky he wasn't blinded in that eye eh?

Could have been worse, he could have given him a Bootle kiss.

From what I know about Knowsley, a punch and a poke in the eye is just a friendly way of saying hello.

It has to be understood that wardens are generally about as bright as your average club bouncer.

Was reading about a case in Edinburgh the other day, a warden was having an Americans car towed and they were arguing. A man of the cloth intervened and was told to f**k by the warden
