    Agreed, I am indeed Black Catted! Well done that Police Officer, how were you?

    I felt fine at the time aside from embarrassment, thank you. It only started to hurt the next day. Fractures to clavicle and ribs, concussion, exposed forearm bone, dislocated fingers and thumb. Merely flesh wounds although I couldn't put my own socks on for about two weeks.

    One of the two paramedics was someone I train with occasionally. He said "I know who you are so I won't ask you to tell me your name. But do you remember me lending you £20 last week?" Black humour, eh? :)

    Did you have to put someone else's socks on?

    Funnily enough, yes, I did. I rummaged about and found some non-elasticated socks which I had recovered from my old pa's nursing care home after he died. His droopy old, beige socks were recycled! :)

    Having a few beers and getting pumped up to the max to do some phys and waking up sober without the effort the next morning and questioning what went wrong.

    Gym-goers who need to park 3 metres from the entrance door so they don't wear themselves-out too much walking the 12 metres from a parking bay...

    I'm no detective but is it just me thinking that the driver might have dashed in to sell steroids rather than to use the facilities?

    Jeeez how on earth do you get those cracks in the bonnet and above the windscreen like that? Looks like he's drove it through Chernobyl.

    Also, he's knicked the headlights or had them knicked, those don't belong on that car.

    It had one of those pearlescent paint jobs, I'm guessing they weren't available 12 years ago, so probably a dodgy re-spray.

    People who like running. There’s always someone in Lycra comes cruising by smirking and singing along to their headphone while I’m sweating my ass off and praying that a passing lorry will swerve off the road and end my suffering.

    Tried cycling recently for the first time in 20 years, under orders from She who must be obeyed. Hobbled for about a week and was convinced I had sat in a razor.

    Being mean and making Scrooge look like a philanthropist I was going to tie a cushion on the saddle.

    Interestingly, from your DM link:

    "But the Met have once again rejected the advice and will continue to say 'victim'"

    Here's a compromise. How about 'alleged victim'?
    It's respectful and complies with the conventions associated with every other crime.
