Apparently, someone fills their diesel car with petrol every 3.5 minutes here in the UK. That’s a statistic that would have made me snigger yesterday, perhaps even roll my eyes at the human capacity for inepitude.
Today, as I handed a mug of tea to the AA man, it just made me feel a tiny bit better.
(He also told me that the other week he turned up to exactly this situation only to find it was another AA man. And also apparently the police are the absolute worst at this. Who knew?)
