I Pity the Fool

What sort of person gives his (and it was a he) little BMW roadster a personalised number plate that reads ‘Phool’? Well, if the evidence of yesterday was anything to go by, the sort of person who also turns left across a pedestrian crossing without indicating he was turning.

Actually, thinking about it, the real shame is that all the other drivers aren’t so conveniently labelled. Some sort of compulsory scheme seems to be indicated. I’m accepting nominations now for the driver who most needs the number plate ‘ID10T’…

  5. One seen in Dublin EJIT1 . Specially personalised What a GOM B11N

  6. Huttonian – I don’t believe you. Although our local plumbing firm has the plate: LO02WET

  7. Well actually it may be a figleaf of the imagination. But I did see at Sligo races in the late 1950s a Dr’s car : SAY99

  8. I had such an encounter with a lady driver on a crossing, Instead of breaking she stepped on the acceleration while I was just in front of her fancy car. It seems that she confused the breaks with the acceleration, but I do not blame her, only her little tiny brain. I needed hospitalization, by-the-way.

  9. Phool is Hindi (Indian language) for ‘flower’. Maybe thats what it meant?

  10. VS – that could be an explanation. Although he was still driving a little phoolishly …
