New Forest 2012 - I have to share this anecdote

Discussion in 'Hants' started by D and G, Jul 2, 2012.

  1. So Gill and I have been down to the New Forest for the weekend, had a great time, stayed at the Red Shoot camp in Linwood, highly recommend it, great site.

    Anyway, on to the anecdote, as we were off out on the saturday, tomtom took us out of the forest and up to the A31 to go to Milford on sea. I sat at the edge of the dual carriageway for what seemed 5 mins watching traffic in both lanes stream by unable to get out. eventually I see someone indicating to pull in to where I was coming out of, this is it I thought, i'm off. When I pulled out there was a bit of a hill to climb but I tried to make progress quickly, I looked in my mirror and the driver behind was waving his hands about all over the place and his passenger was bashing the map on the dashboard with both hands. Now, we only had to go half a mile up the road before we pulled off, and as my window was open I thought i'd wave and say thanks only to see several pairs of 2 fingers being waved, i can only think they were saying V for V dub ???
    Gill and I laughed soo much that they should get soo upset, it really made our day, probably not theirs, but hey ho !

  4. on a not dis similar note mate, my friends came over from Switzerland recently, they wanted to go see this 700 year old yew tree , so i arrange the transport etc , so we park up and have to walk about half a mile to the woods along the pavement out of the housing development , as we made our way, a car goes by wiv 5 lads in it , windows down screaming abuse at us, so very ha ha , typical where i live at present, it was trying to explain to my guests that this is just how it is , at least in this part of the country anyhow, i"m no angel but.......
