    Five really happened and five we made up but which are which?

    Got 8 out of 10. My S-I-L used to work for a car insurance company (years ago - she's I her 80s now), and some of the stories she told us were hilarious.

    6 out of the 10. One of the questions brought the following to mind. Cheapside in Denham ends at a T junction with another road crossing in front. Directly in front approaching the junction is a high brick wall on the other side of the other road. Over the years quite a few cars have run into the wall, and the repairs do resemble a tunnel in shape. There is a story, although it could be a local urban myth, that someone did drive into the wall believing it to be a tunnel entrance.

    Re: my S-I-L working in the car insurance - when we bought our first campervan, she said, "Oh, my manager's got one of those and he has a bunk up in the back". To this day we've never explained to her the tears in our eyes as we rolled with laughter.

    I remember reading a list of some really funny ones some time back. One of them read....."The tree came at me from the other side of the road?"
