Everyone is welcomed to a motorway service area. All creeds and colour filling the tank or the stomach, milling around, stretching their legs.
Notorious for food or goings on at night. Rolls Royce, Mondeo , white van, Volvo truck, drawn to the spot.
Juggernauts stacked outside, grease in the kitchen. Picnic or brew up in the camper on a sunny day.
A flutter on the one armed bandit or in the car park after dark may suit?
In a common cause, families with young children mingle with hardened travellers. One thing a binding urge - yes the need for a pee.

    You have created the seediness and the neediness really well here Steve. Nice one again.

    You're welcome, but you'll only get a diploma if you pass the practical. That involves a lot of eating greasy fry-ups, playing slot machines, doing whatever else you fancy....oh, and peeing. :-)
