Nominative Determinism [Jan. 30th, 2008|02:17 pm]
Douglas Spencer

Friends will already be aware that I was involved in a road traffic accident yesterday afternoon.

One of the traffic officers from Surrey Police who was in attendance was a Mr Skidmore.

The other driver is insured by a company called Admiral -- when I phoned them I found myself talking to Mr Nelson.

Gosh, I'm sorry to hear about the accident - I hope you and everyone else involved are ok.

The names are splendid, though. I kind of feel sorry for Mr Skidmore, though - whatever ambitions he might have had of joining the CID, or rising to the dizzy heights of Detective Chief Inspector or perhaps even Chief Constable, he's doomed to spend the entirety of his police career in the traffic division.

"Request for transfer denied. Sorry about that, but to be honest we decided it's funnier if you stayed in the Traffic division."

In Mr Nelson's case, it could possibly work in his favour - his employers presumably having an extra reason to keep him around.

You couldn't make it up.

Glad you're OK, and hope things continue well.
