thoughtful car averts chase by cops
I prevented a Police car chase today when my own car decided to phone me.
"Ring Ring", it went.
"Hello", I said.
"Hello I'm your car, registration blah blah blah".
"I might have been stolen, check whether I'm where you think I should be..."
"Press 1 if I've been stolen or 2 if you know I've been moved without the key"
"You pressed the button to say I've not been stolen"...
...and so it went on.
They've taken my busted car away on a flat bed trailer to have the springy-ness re-boinged. It will return a veritable Tigger in a day or two. Meantime I'll be driving to Heathrow in the green teapot.
