I Told You So!!!
"Why don't you go to the Kent office, that way you are nearer to home and I can keep you posted on the weather". I advised.
"Hmmmmmmm.....I don't know.........Shall I.........It might be better in Surrey......Hmmmmmmmm........Although Kent is nearer...........Hmmmmmmmmm" He replied.
"I think you should head off now and just make sure you are home by 6 pm as that's when its going to get really bad" I said.
"OK Wincy Willis (for anyone who is not as old as me, she used to be a weather lady on TV am....God now I do feel old) thanks for your advice but I think I am quite capable of telling what the weather is going to do, plus they said all this last time and nothing happened. Some of us do actually have to go to work you know" he replied.
"Fine" I said, "but ,if you get bloody stuck in this tonight don't say I didn't warn you." I said.
At 5.45pm he finally called to say he was well and truly stuck...............Now, to cut a very long story short what should of taken him 1/2 hour actually took him 4 hours. After getting stuck behind 2 jack knifed lorries, almost crashing into a tree and yelling at the gritting lorries he finally staggered through the door at 9.30pm. As he emerged all covered in snow the first thing he said was "Don't you dare say it...............I am not in the mood for you to tell me that I should of left earlier".
I carried on cleaning up the supper plates and smiled sweetly to myself....."Oh I wont darling, I'm just glad to have you home safe and sound" I said (all be it a bit sarcastically ).
Lots of smug love
