Even though it’s Half Term for almost all schools, traffic (beginning Monday) has been logically fairly light. On the way in on Monday, travel time was down by at least 5 minutes; No Grannies/O-fers™ delivering the Little Precious; Minimal buses … nice way to start the week!
On the way home, mostly the same. However – since I left the orifice a bit late – I expected even fewer impediments. Oddly enough, I was wrong. No matter, the Middle Lane™ was going to provide my respite from the unusual line of traffic I pulled behind about @ Dev. Rec.
As I passed the line (consisting of 5 cars, 2 Bikes & a Taxi) EVERY SINGLE DRIVER WAS ON THE PHONE … with the exception of the pillion passenger on Bike #2, who was relaying instructions from the Phone to the Rider!!! Taximan was all dickty with his bluetooth headset, but still laughing & jabbering away.
