How it is…

Is Darren there?

I’ve not been in the best of moods today thanks to a speeding fine that just dropped through my letterbox. 37mph in a 30mph zone it reckons – so I’m being fined £100 for 7mph? And to be honest I’m not sure I was even going that fast when I passed the camera/spy van; and another thing, surely that’s entrapment or something? Damn it!

I was just nicely simmering over that when the phone rang:

Me: Hello.

Her: Is that you Darren?

Me: No, I think you’ve got the wrong number.

Her: Oh, sorry about that.

Me: No problem.

I returned to my seat but, no sooner had I sat down, the phone rang again:

Me: Hello.

Her: Is that you Darren?

Me: No, wrong number again.

Her: Oh, that’s strange, I thought I’d dialled it right. Is Darren there at all?

Me: What, you mean in the house? I’ll just check…no, it’s the wrong number.

Her: Oh, sorry again.

Me: That’s okay, I had to get up to answer the phone anyway.

I went back to my seat and was just lowering myself down when the phone rang yet again – surely not?

Me: Hello.

Her: Is that you Darren?

Me: Yes.

Her: Oh thank God, I kept dialling the wrong number and a right miserable sod kept answering.

Me: Some people eh?

Her: That’s not Darren is it?

Me: Noooo, it’s the miserable sod..

      • There is not an ounce of misery in you, my friend! 😉 Bones would concur! 🙂

      • Hmm, not sure he would – he’s not allowed to get away with his mischief!

  3. Poop on the ticket! Wish I could wave a magic wand and have that whole thing disappear!

  4. Darren is probably on his way round to yours to thump you for pissing off his girlfriend. I hope he’s not a heavyweight boxer.

    • True, I reached my limit against a super middleweight in a nightclub a few years ago. I had trouble chewing my toast the next morning, but I reckon he still remembers.
