The car park machines of Kent

...are specifically unusual and weird. In Tenterton you pay by the five minutes, and have to enter your registrion number, apparantly this is so confusing people from London take pictures of the machines (no not me I'm from Hastings nowadays). Then the one in Tunbridge Wells yesterday, that talked ina voice off of (like the colloquial, ay, ay?) Only Fools and Horses. In Tunbridge Wells? (Which, is a town that is like, posh you know).

Though it was warning of leaving valuables in cars though, so I suppose it makes sense that them Cockerney's would be out robbing the good people of Kent. I had to hang out by the machines, thus, making myself look a little strange. But it really was weird, and really was in the accent.

Still at least there were spaces to park. And Kent is rather nice, dahling.

Ha, ha! Course I know how to spell Cockerney, and my offspring were born v. close to the bells, so am only joking! In all seriousness I do hate Only Fools and Horses with a passion, and them's from de Sauf anyway...
