...had managed to break a Hyde Park peddallo boat through taking it into his head to try pedalling backwards while the other person was pedalling full strength in the usual direction, would you have risked the wrath of the owner by coughing up to it? Or not?

Just wondering.

I do know what you mean, but don't forget that breakages are written into their hire costs.

Just drift quietly away - "Do I know this boy?!"

My GS once peed in a shop on a sort of ramp between two areas - and the wee ran in a merry river all the way down. I drifted quietly away! "Wee? - what wee?!"

Yes petra! That is what I'm banking on. A quick soldering job can't be that expensive.

My DS when a toddler ducked under the red velvet rope and weed on the chaise longue that Charles Dickens died on. Did we own up? Did we hell. You have never seen two parents move as fast.
