Hot weather brings the best and the worst out in people.
I stopped at the petrol station in Rhuddlan on my home from work this morning
( I needed an emergency scotch egg)
And as the heat of what will be the hottest day of the year
Hit me like one of those waves of heat you get when you exit the aeroplane on a sunshine holiday
I bumped into a young woman in the doorway of the shop.
"You TWAT!" The woman spat out under her breath just as I mumbled an apology
And I stood there for a moment lost for words as she stalked away
Just before she closed her car door, I tried to recover, despite being knackered after a night shift
All I could counter with
Was a lame but very precise call of
" CHEAP SHOES!"
