My car is parked just round the corner. Yesterday I went to it to get some stuff out of the boot and found that it had been picked up and moved two metres from where I had parked it. The city council had been painting new road markings and it had been in their way.

I told a friend about this on the phone and she told me how her dad once got into his MG in town and drove most of the way home before he opened the glove box and realised it wasn’t his but someone else’s identical one. He returned it to the place he’d found it and then picked up his own car in the next street.
