Frightening the kiddies

Yesterdays other amusing(?) incident; I’m walking down the street, having passed a very flash looking Mercedes Cabriolet with plenty of time on it’s ticket when I have to sharply side step to allow a little girl literally tugging her mother along, saying “Hurry mummy, hurry.” Her mother seems to find it all fairly amusing and keys the unlock on the Merc.

I’m only a couple of steps past said vehicle when the Mother turns to me and says. “I’m all right for time aren’t I?”
“Yes, madam, of course.” I’m a bit puzzled, her pay and display ticket had a good twenty minutes left before expiry.
“It’s just that my little girl was afraid you were going to book us.” She explains.
“Oh, I see.” Say I, still a bit bemused.
“It’s a bit sad really, when even the children are frightened of you isn’t it?” She gave me a grin. I had to laugh.
“Maybe you ought to tell her the Traffic Warden will come and get her if she’s not a good girl.” I joked back.
“I might.” We parted on a smile.

Phew, didn’t know I’d become the local bogey man. On the other hand, maybe it’ll keep some folk on the straight and narrow.

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
