….TV (or wireless…er…radio…) is what we geriatrics do quite frequently.
Yesterday I starting shouting at the windscreen.
Driving from the east coast to Birmingham on the A14 – cruise control set at 70 mph – and I slow down at a 50mph sign.
Just behind it (and adjacent to an area of significantly degraded tarmac) was a supplementary sign saying:
SPEED LIMIT DUE TO SAFETY REASONS
It wouldn’t have been too bad if I’d just THOUGHT it, but I blurted (yelled, actually..)
“ALL speed limits are for safety reasons, YOU FUCKING IDIOTS. That’s why you have them. And you don’t need an extra fucking SIGN to tell me that…!”
I trust you’ll all agree….
Yup, a full-fledged curmudgeon!
