First world problem – when there is a fast moving river running down your street due to a burst water main and your son is late for work.
In such situations, one must choose a suitable car to ford the torrent, don’t you think? The little car or the little-used big car? I firstly assured myself that it could be done safely by watching my intrepid neighbours and then chose the big car. Better safe than sorry.
Since my son is not licensed to drive the big car, I had to drive him to work (firstly rescuing our garbage bin before it became a victim of the current). I suggested we drive with the windows down so that we could make an escape from our vehicle in the event it was washed away. Do you reckon I was over-thinking it? We later regretted that decision. Oh well, never mind.
We survived (obviously).
