A bit of surprise on the way to work....

Driving into work this morning at 6.30am and approached a cross roads controlled by traffic lights as you do.

Lights were red on my side so I slowly drew up behind a Mercedes Vito which was stopped ahead of me whose hazard lights then started to flash.

Imagine my surprise to see a guy slide out from beath the back of the van into the area between my front bumper and his rear one!

He was trying to do a quick repair to his exhaust apparantly

Did you dip your oil? Maybe he was stealing synthetic oil to sell in China!

Had he been there while the Vito was moving? Thick foreign accent? :-)
