    S3 almost squashed by excavator !!!

    Folks,

    I thought I'd have a nice flexi day off work today. So there I am watching series 5 of the Sopranos, just taking it easy, when I hear the noise of a large truck outside.

    A couple of houses are being built just next to my house, so this truck was to take away an excavator from the site.

    As he was parked right next to my driveway, not so far away from the S3, I thought I'd stick around and watch.......

    So the guy is driving it up on the truck when this happens.......

    So I dive out of the house - the driver is upside down in the cab at this point (but not injured I might add!) and the excavator is trying to turn - almost ready to topple - so I do the only thing I could - move the S3 out of the way!!!

    You can see from the photo how close it was to the slabs on my driveway where it was parked!

    Enough excitement for me for one day - I'm off to have a heart attack......

    Sound like the Toyota ad for the Yaris with the window cleaner.

    Well, I did ask him if he was OK first - he said "aye" - so the only thing to do was move the car [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Yeah - the best show ever! I'm totally hooked, I always say to myself I'll just watch 1 episode, but I end up watching 3 of them and wonder where the day has gone.....

    It's just too good!
