Not too long ago the police came knocking at my door. (That sounds familiar).
They said to me
Is JD here? (he works with Daz)
NO (oops, I didn't shout it, my finger just hit the caps key). I said
No, why, what'd he do?
And she told me. Which I thought was a bit strange. I thought they'd like to tell him first before they blabbed it all over town.
Apparently the police had received a phone call from The Concerned Citizen to say that he was driving to work and JD had overtaken him going 130 kilometres an hour. Twice he'd done it. Different days of course.
The first thing I thought (but didn't say) was
How fast was Concerned Citizen going himself for JD to have to go 130 to get past him? And how does he know JD was going that exact speed? And how reliable can the police judge this citizen to be?
So I had on my slightly concerned, this is a bit serious face and said to them
Have you seen what JD drives?
I mean its a transit van. It looks similar to something Postman Pat might like to drive. And the back of it is loaded with gas bottles and ladders and tools. If it ever gets anywhere near 130 kilometres an hour, well I want to see it happen.
Anyway, I told them exactly where he was, because it's always good for a laugh to get the cops onto him. I think when they saw the van they were a bit dubious. Pity they didn't take him out the road and make him crank the transit up just to see how fast it would go.
