On The Street
I saw this strange sight today on a local Barrow in Furness street and couldn't resist taking a photo.
It reminded me of a tale from one particular busy Sunday a while back now.
I had picked my fare up which was a guy who had obviously been out partying all night long. He was still very much the worse for wear but in a very good mood laughing and joking as we drove through to the nearby town of Dalton.
The party animal was still laughing at one of his many unfunny jokes when we pulled into his street, then he suddenly stopped and the entire colour drained out of his face and he looked really shocked.
What’s the matter I asked, his mouth was working but no words were coming out, he looked like he was going to have a seizure. But then I saw the problem outside what turned out to be his house was a pile of plastic bags with shoes clothes etc (his I guess) spilling out.
And to make it worse it was pouring it down with rain and there balanced on top of the sodden pile was a very expensive looking stereo.
