Original call handled by N. Which consisted of N: You need to stop the car and we’ll get it recovered. D: No. (and repeat).
N says to me that she shouldn’t be driving this, I of course say, you’re right and I’m in the mood for a fight. So to protect us in the event she kills everybody in her path I call her up.
M: It’s Kevin calling from [holla plc] I’m calling in regards to your [gigantic 4×4]. Is it correct that you have a red warning light on your dash saying “STOP” and another red warning light?
M: I must insist you cease driving the vehicle as obviously you have the warning light telling you to stop which could indicate a number of issues, potentially even with the brakes. So you will need to pull over to prevent further dammage to the vehicle and the potienial injury to yourself and other road users.
D: I CAN’T WAIT 60 MINUTES FOR YOU TO SHOW UP, I HAVE MY CHILD IN THE BACK, I’M JUST GOING TO TAKE THAT CHANCE AND DRIVE HOME.
M: (repeating the above). In regards to the attendance time seeing as you are on a main road we can attempt to get a priority call out for you which would mean they would be within the hour.
D: I don’t have time for that MY BABY MY BABY (etc).
M: (again repeating the potential for self endangerment), again I can only stress that you could have an issue with the brakes from what you have described warning light (!) which again I must stress that you should cease use of the vehicle so we can have somebody attend it.
D: (refuses again for the same reasons).
M: I have advised you that you need to cease operation of this vehicle but if you continue on you need to be aware that you could potentially cause an accident. If the situation changes and you want us to call a breakdown agent out call us immedately.
Now, I’m all for killing yourself, by all means go for it. You live and end your life as you wish, however, using “MY BABY” excuse for not stopping YOUR RECKLESS BEHAVIOUR isn’t exactly winning the brain power award here for seeing the obvious. Especially as I’m the only person who appears to be thinking OF YOUR GOD DAMN BABY. Because I don’t know about you, but cars with no brakes tend to cause accidents.
It turned out the following day that she managed to live and called us for recovery. Idiot.
