I was hit by a car in Wolverhampton today. I was standing on a traffic island, when the traffic stopped. The woman who stopped about 10 feet away was on the phone. So I said she should get off the phone. She ignored me so I stood in front of the car and repeated 'Get off the phone'. She just drove straight at me. I stepped to one side and she glanced off me as she passed. I suppose this is what passes for manners in countries where the sun shines all year round.
What is more annoying is I looked at the number plate and thought if only I had my camera, which is odd because I never think about my camera when anything exciting happens. Needless to say I don't remember the number. Doh!
