So here I am tooling down the road on my way to work when some guy grabs a ladder that was propped up against a broken street light (this was one of those big 12 foot ladders) and starts staggering across the road with it. He loses his balance and the thing starts swinging right at my windshield! I had to swerve out of the way which meant I almost ran him over. I called the police to report this lunatic. Sure glad I didn't hit him, that would have ruined my day!
I was working on a streetlight in the early morning. Some drunk guy stumbled across the road and nearly got hit by a car (whose driver may also have been drunk, or maybe just half asleep). The drunk guy then stole my ladder out from under me, forcing me to grab on to the light I was fixing. As the drunk was making off with my ladder, some other bloke walking his dog saw the spectacle, but instead of helping me, he just phoned the police to report a burglar. He must've seen me, because he looked directly at the busted streetlight from which I was hanging. Why on earth did he not help me? I had to hang there for over an hour, clinging on for dear life, before some good Samaritan helped me down.
What is this talk of release? I do not release software. My software escapes leaving a bloody trail of designers and quality assurance people in its wake.
Looked out of my window this morning cause the streetlight had gone out and I wondered why. There was this bloke with a dog following a man with a ladder, obviously up to no good as he was keeping out of sight of the ladder carrier. Luckily a passing car lit them both up so I could pass the description on to the police.
Awful! They sound like bloody hairdryers. I went to the Hungarian GP many times and it was brilliant, the sheer brut power could be heard roaring around the track. That? Barely hear it across the road.
I was walking the dog this morning I saw a suspicious looking man dressed in dark clothing, crossing the street with a ladder. He had even gone to the trouble of disabling the street light so as not to be seen. I got a good look at him though as he was lit up by an oncoming car. I have passed his description on to the Police.
