I dropped the wife off to her part time job this morning. But while I was out I had to return some shorts to a shop as they are not made for the fully belly figure I parked up in a disabled bay and went to look that it was OK to just show the badge or pay as well (Our local council give you an extra hour parking for the price of parking in their car parks) No it was free as long as I displayed the badges.
Well while I was there an frail elderly looking gentleman was getting a ticket with his walking stick leaning next to the machine. Just as the ticket popped out he knocked his stick which fell down along with the ticket to the floor. The ticket started to blow towards me so I said "I will get it." As I got in to the semi splits position so I did not bend the dodgy knee and prepare for the swan position before the dismount and pick up the ticket with my left hand supporting me on the nearby bollard and to get me back in to the vertical.
As I handed over the ticket he responded with "Bloody hell mate you are in a worse state than me!"
Some people just know how to make you feel so much better about yourself
