Random acts of surprise

| No TrackBacks

Friday evening, my wife and I were happily nipping round to my brother-in-law's flat when we reached the corner of the road. What should happen next, but a car should hurl past at about 20mph and go flying off the road, down a grassy verge, through some trees and into the side of a building.

What was most surprising?

  1. That the driver didn't seem to brake at any point
  2. That the five-month pregnant passenger and the driver got away almost unharmed, even though the front of the car was mashed in
  3. That when I ran into the reception of the nearby GP and told the receptionist that there had been a serious traffic accident outside involving a pregnant woman, she replied “Well, the doctors are all busy with patients right now”.

Did they have an appointment? Silly me.
