In the past 24 hours ive driven over 600 miles from Edinburgh to London and from London to Leeds.
I set off at 2am this morning to be in London to pick up a sick friend ,i got as far as the M40 before the tiredness got the better of me.Like a good boy i pulled into the services,it cost a fortune for a manky sandwich and a tea.I then left the engine running and fell asleep in the car.Only to be woken about an hour later by some bloke in a fluorescent jacket,asking me to pay for the parking.
Out of my stupor i said Ive not been here that long,he said yes you have Ive been watching you,he was right 2hours and 10 minutes id been on the services.
I tried to explain this is the only sleep Ive had in probably 22hours,he said he didn't care and cough up or move on.
Now a tired grumpy,and possibly pretty miffed by now yorkshireman must be a sight to see because when id finished with my tirade of abuse at him,i noticed a fair few cars with drivers in the same boat as me all looking my way.
