Re: On being too polite

These things happen. In retrospect it would have been easier if I had just pressed the go pedal earlier and gone ahead, but not being in a hurry ... sometimes it's better to get going and not being too considerate of the other person ... :steering: Mea culpa mea maxima Saab Jim Not forgetting that ...
