Peak hour hilarity

The strangest thing hap­pened to me on the way to work last week. Here I am, dri­ving along with a co-work­er up Lime­stone Ave dur­ing peak hour traf­fic, when I noticed a car up ahead eas­ing out from a dri­ve­way onto the road…. “That’s a bit cheeky” I said to my friend as I con­tin­ued along, think­ing the car would stop before it pulled out into the two lanes of traf­fic mov­ing at a rea­son­able pace. But noooo, the car kept com­ing and I had to swerve so that the car wouldn’t T-bone me. Then, as my mate turned to look behind us he said the strangest thing… “There’s nobody in that car!”

Sure enough, the car kept going per­pen­dic­u­lar to traf­fic, every­one behind me had been blocked, as it bounced off the gut­ter and rolled back­wards again to come to a stop. The sto­ry end­ed there for me, look­ing back in my mir­ror as we drove out of sight with this car just sit­ting in the mid­dle of the road.

Much embar­rass­ment must have ensued as some­one realised that their car was not in the dri­ve­way where they left it, and that a hun­dred angry peak hour motorists were wait­ing to glare and snarl at them…
