So today I popped down to the village to do some chores.
I came back and as I was driving down the main 'vineyard' road an old and rather dilapidated hatchback was approaching. It was weaving erratically and I prepared to drive onto the wide grass margin to avoid what I presumed was some drunk idiot.
Imagine my surprise when I found that this was a special kind of idiot.
He had a small child (no older than 10 I would say) sat ON HIS LAP and he was allowing THE CHILD to steer the car!!! On a public highway in the middle of the day.
The sheer stupidity of that is, frankly, beyond my understanding.
