Posted 04 November 2011 - 09:57 PM

Today at eleven in the morning a 72 year old Lady decided that it was a good time to come and park her car twenty mt in side my new shop.
Thats right in side the shop. :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o :o

Taking out the one  half of the glass front door and half of the stock in my shop only stopping at the back wall. The old bag missed me me by only a mater of feet in the process cariring down the length of the shop fill it with smoke and burnt rubber and broken lamps.

The good news in all of this is that I get to tell you I and my staff member are both OK but I now have one hell of a big clean up ahead this week end.

I have to thank the Rev mate for looking after me on this one because one one was hurt and the stock can be replaced. I did make the local news so that should help sales.

Umm, would that count as an epic fail on her part???
At least everyone is ok but not a good way to spend the weekend...

I'm assuming you're covered by insurance to? Get a clean up crew in on them?
At least you're all safe and sound.

Seriously glad you are OK mate! :o

You really shouldn't have installed those novelty traffic lights in the shop mate - clearly the old duck got confused!

Clearly the old dear sounds like a bright spark.

The ordeal would have left her light headed.

She obviously didn't have Light-ening fast reactions...

I guess your shop now needs re-filament?

Maybe she was a LED-foot?

Have the police investigated to shed any light on the situation?

How many little old ladies does it take to change a light bulb?

Don't worry mate - there's light at the end of the tunnel.


In all seriousness, I am glad you are ok, let us know if we can help in any way Bruce.

Jane.

Perhaps she mistook the shop at the end of the street for the light at the end of the tunnel...

That could have been SHOCKING!

Not a very BRIGHT idea.

I'm sure her purse will be LIGHTER now.

She should have stayed at home planting BULBS.

Thank God no-one DIODE.

She really went off TRACK.

Luckily you weren't in the way or you would have SOCKET  ::)

You should BATTEN down the hatches.

You'll recover, you're a strong OSMAN.

Hope you were wearing your safety FLUORO.

Glad no-one was hurt buddy.
