Yesterday Husband and I decided to go to Bath. To achieve this we take a short cut to reach the Park and Ride at Lansdown. At short cut there was a tatty little notice that said "Road Closed for Road Cleaning - 9.30am to 3.30pm". The time was exactly 9.30am. Husband was ready to make huge detour - "No", I said, "It is still 9.30am". With that I jumped out of car and removed bollards - same thing at the end of the short cut. Voila! all done and dusted.
Climbed aboard to Park and Ride Bus and met by chance one of Husband's tennis doubles partners whom I have not met before. She said to me "I gather you went to Benenden". Then ensued a conversation about school etc etc. (I hated the place). She then complained how she had had to reach the Park and Ride area through streams of traffic. I said, in a loud voice, "Oh, I removed the bollards". There was a gasp and titters from many other passengers on the bus who had obviously suffered the same traffic jams.
At Benenden they taught you how to be independent and resourceful (forget about the lessons)!!
