The Gate - Nailed

“Where have you been? I’ve been frantic; I’ve been looking all over the place for Brian. I asked Pam next door if she’d seen him, I’ve knocked at Betty’s, and I’ve been ringing YOU on your mobile for the last hour.”

“I’ve been stuck in traffic. There’s a big pile up on the motorway, traffic’s backed up to junction 37. I had to go miles up the road and then drive back down the motorway for our turn off.
There’s loads of white cladding type stuff all over the road; traffic cop said it was caravan; it’d more or less disintegrated. Apparently it flipped over taking the car with it; a big artic just wiped it out; another twenty vehicles involved; so he said.
Recons a dog had got onto the motorway; and the car towing the caravan had braked hard to try and stop.
You know some people should take more care of their animals. I hope that they can sleep at night after knowing they’ve caused all that.

I can’t believe you couldn’t hear all of the sirens from here; it’s only just over the back field; down the embankment.
You know we’ll have to tell Jack to be careful on the field when he’s throwing Brian’s ball for him; there’s loads of holes in that fence.

Janet why are you crying?
I know it’s terrible and all that, but it’s not like we know these people”.
