    I was just cycling home and I had just crossed over the lights - as I was coming past the entrance to a pub some old geezer walks out pushing a lawnmower in front of himself!

    I didn't think that much of it but he just kept on coming and pushed the lawnmower right into my path at the same time that I was being overtaken by other cars!

    There was nowhere for me to go so I just shouted "no" and he kept on coming - I shouted "no" again and he screamed "NO NO NO" back at me and started shaking the lawnmower all about - but thankfully moved it back so I didn't plough into it!

    What a nutter!! :ohmy:

    LOL - he definately seemed like he had some "issues" - I'm more interested in what the people in the pub thought about him and his lawnmower!!!

  10. Maybe it was the oldest excuse in the book, "Sorry mate I didn't see(d) you"?
