Bollocks

I bumped the Berlingo in Tescos car park this morning.
I was reversing out of a space holding scotch egg in my mouth, just as a chap was doing the same from the opposite parking space. Now he was just driving, he didn't have a scotch egg in his mouth ( that would be just too wierd) but our bumpers just about touched as both of us hit the breaks.
I bit down hard on the egg which bounced down into the foot well and got out out of the car with a groan
There wasn't a mark on the chap's car.
We couldn't tell if there was one on the berlingo......it's covered in bumps... so we left on good terms.
It's going to be just one of those days today.
When I was outside looking at bumpers
Meg had scoffed the egg on the floor.
It was the first one I had bought in two weeks!.....and they were on special offer!

  3. LOL -- that Meg is hilarious. Olga also eats anything within reach, so I can sympathize. At least you know where that egg had been -- as opposed to so many of the morsels Olga consumes off the sidewalk on any given walk.

  4. Glad there was no damage, other then the egg, it was sort of bumper for your teeth. And it went to good use.

  5. Glad no (obvious damage to you, the car or meg, shame about the egg...).
    I would have gone bwck in the store and bought another egg.......but, you probably had a 'back up egg' in case of emergencies? xx

  6. There's a moral to this story somewhere but I'm not sure what it is?

  7. Your scotch egg loss and incompetent driving is Meg's gain.

  9. Well.....you wouldn't have eaten it off the floor of the car anyway so Meg was just doing clean up duty for you ..... right?????

  10. Looks like a bad start for you is a good start for Meg.

  11. Meg's got good taste, John. Have you never had a go at making Scotch eggs?

  14. I see your friend is here again (above)!!!!!

    After such a close shave, I'm surprised you didn't go right back into Tesco's and buy TWO.

  16. Farewell, scotch egg, we hardly knew ye.

  17. That's why I like used cars. What's another bump?

    ReplyDelete
  18. In this area most vehicles the size of the berlingo would have hit a bumper that is 2-3 feet off the ground, matching the taillights.

  19. I was puzzled by the title of this blogpost but then when I thought about it, scotch eggs do indeed resemble bollocks! Given their gingery colour, maybe the bollocks of an adolescent orang utan.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aw bless Meg, with her bad eyes she must have heard it drop and then sniffed it out. She deserved it for the trauma of the bump.

  21. Same thing happened to me. I was backing out hurriedly to get away from a panhandler and dented a, oh I don't know what it's called. Anyway the whole thing cost me $2000. USD. It is such a racket. My husband said, why didn't you just tell the panhandler NO. I wish I would have. Panhandlers scare me and are getting more menacing and in numbers. Kind of like the walkers.

  22. Sorry about your bump. I've been dented and scraped in parking lots (while away from my car) six times in the past three years. So it probably resembles your Berlingo in that way. We call it the invisible car now; seems like no one sees it.

    Just think of how Meg enjoyed her treaure! Now doesn't that make the loss of your treat worth it?

  23. Off to work tonight...running late

  24. You were lucky.
    In America they would have grabbed their neck and screamed in pain. Next up the lawyers !
    awwwww Meg was just being a help.

    cheers, parsnip

  25. The other driver may not have been eating a scotch egg, but there again he may have just eaten one a few minutes previously. Apparently at least 189 accidents a year are caused by drivers who are distracted by scotch eggs.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'd say what a waste of a Scotch egg, but obviously Meg wouldn't agree.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I'm sure Meg enjoyed the Scotch egg and figured that as it was in the foot well for more than five seconds, it was fair game.

    I still haven't made these yet. I really ought to try.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Get another Scotch egg tomorrow and don't bring Meg.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Ditto with Arlene! Hope they are still on sale.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Tesco car parks are notorious for bumping cars. So glad there was no damage except the Scotch egg, but I expect Meg enjoyed that.

    ReplyDelete
  31. And you would have eaten it out of the foot well???????????

  32. Have you seen this?

  33. A scotch egg tragedy. Perhaps your rear view was impaired by the egg forcing your cheeks up so as to obscure your eyes? x

  34. We have a lot of "hit and run" accidents in Jacksonville. My car is the proof. I hope you went back for another Scotch egg.

    Love,

  35. Love the final indignity of the event being your stolen scotch egg! That really is the tin lid!

    You do make me smile!

  37. Meg did you a favour as you might have been tempted to brush off the scotch egg & eat it !

    ReplyDelete
  38. You could say it was a very good day...a car accident with no significant damage abd one scotch egg less on the waistline!

    ReplyDelete
  39. One more dent on the bumper, one less inch on the waist thanks to Meg, she's a good girl !!
