Early hours of this morning it had just finished snowing and i had just finished a run to east Belfast.
The Upper Newtownards Rd to be exact.
Well one of the little side streets just of it.
My customer safely deposited at her place of residence i started making my way back on the N,townards Rd.
What I didn't noticed on my way in was a tiny tiny hill in fact it was barely an incline.
I did notice it on the way out however because when i pushed the big make car go slower /stop pedal nothing happened.
Now it needs to be said I wasn't going all that quickly at most i was travelling about 5mph and to be fair that's probably exaggerating.
So what's the problem i hear you ask your only sliding at 5ish mph?
Well yes i was only doing 5ish mph but i was also about to slide straight out on to one of the busiest roads in Belfast.
The first thing I thought was oh shit oh shit make the bad car stop!
The second thing I thought realizing thought number one wasn't going to help was this things moving so slow I could just about stand up and just get out and i will be fine.
The third thought was if i get out then i will have a hell of a time explaining any accident to the cops and if i was still inside i might be able to do something when i regain control.
So i put on the hazard lights ( I figured a car that wouldn't stop was a hazard) to try and attract other drivers attention.
I also decided to sound my horn figuring it would get more drivers spot me and give them a chance of avoiding me.
So heart racing, horn sounding and hazards flashing i slid out on to the main Rd.
Where coming straight for me was nothing yup not a thing.
In my panic I had managed to forget it was the early hours of the morning so i ended up feeling a bit of a prat.
Even though it turned out to be a panic over nothing I still had a great adrenaline rush and a case of the shakes for a good half hour.
