Thread Name: BS: and now - layby rage
Subject: RE: BS: and now - layby rage
Unfortunately the only time the number plate was illuminated it was for a few seconds as I was reversing, and my attention was on getting the van aligned with the earth bank on the left side of the tarmac, far enough away so as to be able to access the side door of the van, but not so far out that a large vehicle could not pass by - the lorries sometimes leave very early, to catch the early ferries I think.
I did experience an adrenaline rush - I have to confess that I find them enjoyable - and I put the bike lock next to the bed just in case he came back and I could hit him with it.
The damage is surprisingly minimal - a few bruises and a twisted knee, but I actually feel slightly elated. I also feel that I need to do some sorting out in the house so that if I were to meet a sudden end at some time in the future I would not leave so much to do.
The layby is usually a fairly quiet place, it is out of the way and there are other places closer to the town for assignations. I usually enjoy the darkness - this last week has been moonless so the stars are very visible, and I have sat and taken in the night sky in all its glory on many visits there in the past.
