Traffic Jam
( published 15th July 2003 )

Hi All,

When I drove back from Brussels last week, I knew there would be some traffic jam on the way, and so I tried to find the Belgian radio station Radio21, very good on traffic news. Bloody hell I couldn't find it on automatic search, and it was already 18.58...Next news at 19.00!!! Itried 96.4FM, no luck...101.1 no luck, grrrrrr how goes the slogan again...Radio21 102.6 ?? No that's Heart in the UK. And here, haha, yooohooo, found it found it, this is Radio21, and now it's 19.00, yippiiee. Now stupid traffic I brought my map I'll beat those silly Dutch caravans moving like snales to Southern France. "Et maintenant le trafic sur nos routes..." says the voice on the radio, and then...nothing. I'm in a tunnel, at least 1 kilometre long, and my radio makes bzzzzzzzzzz...I'm hitting the steering wheel with my head ( well, in mind at least ). And when I'm out of the tunnel again the voice goes "...bonne route et a tout a l'heure!" Boooohoooo, why me, why me...

Have a nice day

P.S. Wanna know if I ended up in a traffic jam? Why do you think didn't you receive a morning mail the following day? Booohooooo...

Mr. Smith went to the Doctor's office to collect his wife's test results.
- I'm sorry, sir, but there has been a bit of a mix-up and we have a problem. When we sent the samples from your wife to the lab, the samples from another Mrs. Smith were sent as well and we are now uncertain which one is your wife's. Frankly, that's either bad or terrible.
Mr. Smith:
- What do you mean?
- Well, one Mrs. Smith has tested positive for Alzheimer disease and the other for AIDS. We cannot tell which is your wife.
Mr Smith:
- That's terrible! What am I supposed to do now?
- The doctor recommends that you drop your wife off in the middle of town and if she finds her way home, don't fuck her.
