This is taken from the Pub close to my Mum´s house just a short walk, about 50 meters up an alley. I guess you could say it´s an enforced lock-in! Lots of rain the night before and someone forgot to lower the Thames Barrier, bet he/she is is on the unemployment register now!
I guess no one reads signs anymore, there is a sign (now submerged) which reads “ Car owners, this area is liable to sudden flooding”. So i´m stuck in the Pub for the next three hours, waiting for the tide to go out (how bad is that- not that bad at all actually- i get to sample lot´s of beers in three hours!).
Then out of nowhere these two Swans decide to Swan by and checkout the the idiot humans who left their cars at the mercy of the River Thames.
The bar lady said to the vehicle owner “what are you going to do? “ He said “nothing,´cos everyone is having so much fun photographing my car submerged , that i´ll come back in the morning and sort it out, got a spare starter motor so it should´nt be too much of a problem”-I thought, that´s a classic, Londoners can be so funny sometimes!
Moral of this tale is-if you see a couple of Swans close to your car-move it or lose it!
