The silly season was on in earnest yesterday…

5 minutes from home: A Ukrainian guy driving a purple Commodore rus into the back of my van, while I’m sitting at the lights. When I ask for license details he tells me there is no damage and “I not give you license. You take me to court!”. He jumps back into his car & speeds off.

Down the road another 5 minutes & a pedestrian in Melbourne city decides to run across oncoming traffic to catch a tram. Cars hit brakes, screeching tires, pedestrian survives (just) but misses tram.

Another 5 minutes & BMW stopped in front takes off at red light on massive busy intersection (Victoria Parade & Hoddle St) & gets to the other side, miraculously without collision.

Merry Christmas.

Checkya tomorrow,
Fires out.
