Sorry Dave. Decided to stay at home with folks this friday and have a little pre-rest just before Christmas parties commence... anyway I went to get a Pizza, the Merc was blocked in by my sisters MG so I took the Micra. 1st Thing that came into my mind was Dave Elcome as he had been giving me advice on my wipers! anyhow on my return I saw a Omega Estate Police vehicle blocking my drive and there was a Police man and a guy chatting away... it was raining and dark so I just gave my horn on the little bubble car a toot, nobody came so I tooted again, nobody came but I heard someone talking loud, I opened my door and said, 'Can you move your car please my foods getting cold, i need to get in my drive' The response by the officer was that he held my door open and said, 'dont blow your horn at me or i'll give you a ticket' he then absolutely slammed my door so hard It made me very very cross.... the officer then moved his car (which was on a red route) and I drove in, the other officer called me as I got out my car but I ignored him and locked the door to my porch while I went inside. by this time my door bell was ringing and then when I opened it he said he wanted a word, I said no my foods getting cold, by this time members of my family came out anyway I said sorry if I honked but I dont want to talk to you because my food is getting cold and I am not happy about my door being slammed anyway he explained what he was doing there.. I just told him next time dont block my drive unless its a emegency and dont ever slam my door. IMO the whole thing only escaltedas the police slamed my door, had they not I would have spolen to the officer and apologised for honking etc etc etc but no he packed the first punch. This was my first run-in with a traffic cop since ages (last time they gave me a ticket on my pedal bycycle!) ok I am calm now.
