In the supermarket this afternoon, an announcement came over the tannoy: "Would the owner of the silver Mazda, registration number AB12 1AB*, please come to customer services". To my horror, this is our car.
What could have happened? Anxious thoughts ensued.
Someone has pranged the car? It has gone up in flames, and is now a smouldering heap? It's been broken into? I'd forgotten to apply the handbrake correctly, and it has rolled out of the parking bay and run over a little old lady?
I made my way to the desk and introduced myself as the relevant driver.
"Oh, all your windows are down!" said the helpful lady.
I then thought, "If it's lying open, what will have been nicked?".
I nervously returned to the car where the windows were indeed all down. Nothing had been taken, nor was there any damage. Very strange.
I have no idea what happened. Some electrical quirk or the car has a mind of its own, and wanted some fresh air?
*AB12 1AB is not our real registration number.
