    The other day I was cruising along as usual coming onto one of my motorways, which was very busy with inferior cars.

    First off, I couldn't believe that the volume of traffic DIDN'T slow down for me AT ALL as I came off the slip road!  I had to squeeze into a barely big enough gap between two cars in order to get onto my motorway!  (The driver of the car behind me did realise his mistake though and honked an apology to me with a long blast of his horn.)

    Unbelievably, I had to do the same again before I could get to the MERC lane.  (Why do underlings use this lane?  Surely everyone knows it is for MERC drivers only?)

    Anyway, once I was in the MERC lane and posing along at 110mph enjoying the adulation that the inferior car drivers were giving me, I noticed an inferior car ahead of me which was not only in the MERC lane of my motorway, but was driving at a ridiculous 70 mph!

    Naturally, I got to within a foot or so of his rear bumper and flashed my headlights to remind him he shouldn't be in the MERC lane of my motorway and to get out of my way.

    Of course, once he realised it was a MERC behind him, he did just that, but I could hardly believe it when he pulled straight back out behind me!

    He also tried to keep up with me and when he realised I would out-run him, he put on some blue lights in his front grill and urged me to get onto the hard shoulder so that he could congratulate me on my excellent car.

    Needless to say, I was eager to oblige and when we had stopped, the man gave me a piece of paper confirming what I already knew - that my car goes fast!

    Apparently he wants everyone to know what a superior car I have, so I had to take my driver's licence to a Police Station to be sent away to have some points put on!  (They're not free points either - they're £20 each and I was only allowed 3.)  But the man at the Police Station said that because I drive a MERC, it won't be much longer before I earn the full 12 points, and then I won't even NEED a driving licence, so they will take it off me!

    See, now THAT's the sort of respect you get when you buy and drive a MERC!

    Wheelie,

    How nice it is to see someone taking as light hearted view over this as you are, it's far more refreshing than the usual caustic comments that fly about.

    I trust this non Merc driving individual didn't have the nerve to sit in, or touch your superior car, but if he did, then get it valleted immediately!!

    As a long term solution to this problem, ask Santa for some new driving shoes that don't have so much lead implanted in the soles.

    Wheelie,

    I forgot to thank you for getting into the MERC lane yesterday and moving the inferior cars out of the way for me...........I think that's what you did, I just saw a blur disappearing! <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>
