Mysweet is rather bitter tonight.
I am just happy that he is still alive after the car accident.
The weather has been foul today, it never has really got light, with black clouds and squalling wind and rain.
He was on the motorway driving back home this evening in impossible conditions. He overtook a car at a safe slow 90kilometers per hour in the outside lane, and another car came up behind him driving dangerously at 2 metres behind him, flashing lights and pressing him to get out of the way.
The car then overtook him and slammed on its brakes and forced him to slam on his brakes and skid into the central barrier. He bounced off it across the road, narrowly avoided another barrier and managed to regain control.
Ironically the fact that it was very wet meant the car aquaplaned instead of rolling over and killing him. Amazingly, he got the number of the other car.
He went to report the incident to the police, and they said they could do nothing...no witnesses. Apparently, it is a phenomenon well known here called to fish tail someone "queue de poisson".
The damage will be very expensive, and Mysweet wishes he could vist his aggressor and have a chat with him about it! We just need to find a way of getting the address from the car number...
Oh well, maybe better not!
