So there I was, strolling along the narrow footpath, chatting to Mrs RC on my mobile phone.
I was on my way to the supermarket to re-stock my Pepsi supply at work, and had paused to look at a poster in a local small venue, advertising gigs by local bands.
Then I heard a whirring sound, getting rapidly louder.
Turning to look, I was amazed by what I saw, but before I could laugh I had to step out into the road to save myself a couple of smashed ankles.
Hurtling along the path was an old man in a mobility scooter - like a golf cart for one. As he passed, I was about to swear at him but instead burst out laughing.
Can you guess why? Bet you can't.
He was steering with one hand, while the other was waving a white stick.
A white stick indicates that you have at least a severe visual impairment. So we have an at least half blind guy hacking along the path in his scooter, seemingly unaware or uncaring of the mayhem he was causing! I cursed myself for leaving my camera at work, the video would have gone viral. Maybe I will see if he is around tomorrow?
Hm, thinking further, perhaps there was a camera crew somewhere and they were filming the next "Fast and Furious" movie?
