The general manager said she thought it would be okay if her staff exceeded the maximum speed limit on the way back to the depot at the end of a shift. I was speechless. Much later it occurred to me that I should have asked whether I might break the law too with her approval - if only travelling a couple of stops I would not bother buying a ticket.
When do two wrongs make a right? I ask this as a philosophical question, for once answers not to do with traffic would interest me. Diolch/Danke
Just read an article in the Guardian about "untranslateable" words. In Yiddish "trepverter" means: the witty or suitable response that one occurred to one too late, it could also translate as "staircase words".
