French Collection #7


Travel and stress go hand in hand. Jörg wanted to get back to his lovely wife. Off to Paris airport.
By train.
Trains cancelled!
Taxi – VERY expensive!
Traffic gridlocked.
Time, racing.
Autoroute, accident.
Miss flight?
Flight delayed!

Berlin, huge taxi queue.
Probably miss last train.
Colleague has car.
Take Jörg to suburban station.
(Overtake train?)
Tank empty!
Filling station shut
Motorway to suburb closed
Plea to Almighty
Prayers answered.
They beat the train!
Jörg settles down comfortably for the journey to his city.

What more could happen?

“Hello Darling!”

“Why the hell are you so late?”

    Thanks Drew. It's all true, except that his wife was actually in bed asleep! Why spoil a story ending!

    What more could happen? Of course, the lovely wife and her warm welcome back!
