Xpress Inconvenience


A car almost ploughed into our local shop yesterday, taking out the awning, the phone box and the bin. I don't think there was anyone in the phonebox at the time.

That was a pretty impressive take down by the car!

Cara, we must live so close to one another! Your photos area often around my 'hood'. We don't live far from this shop. I hope they can resurrect the awning - the billy tea sign should be heritage listed!! What a shock! Poor little shop

I went by at about 9:30 on Sat morning. No sign of the car. Apparently it happened about 3am.
It must have made a huge noise. I didn't hear anything up my way - I'm a couple of blocks east but at 3am there's not much competing noise.

I am just across the road from the shop but our place faces the other side... We'd had a pretty big night on Friday, getting a babysitter for the night, working late and gate-crashing our Indian neighbours in the wee small hours - who unfortunately for us had already cooked and eaten. We hung out on their balcony anyway with a few coldies, overlooking the shop. We must have missed the accident by about an hour.

Oh, is that what happened? I noticed the awning was gone and the phone box was a pile of rubble and glass, but somehow did not connect these two things...
