Went to visit my Nan the other-day. She had a relative down from Scotland, whom I see couple of times a year. Long story short: it was time for my departure. I was parked along her long, narrow drive with my wing mirrors folded. I have a habit of folding them even-when completely unnecessary.

Her friend was standing by the passenger side, and as I said my final good-bye, she so kindly pointed out that my wing-mirror was still folded. I said "it's fine, it's automatic", completely oblivious to what I said she proceeded grab the wing-mirror and yank it into position. I could only sit and watch helplessly. I heard this rather-loud crunch and looked at her shocked face.

Fortunately nothing broke! But what an emotional day.

I bet your face was even more shocked than hers. :eek:
Glad it was all ok though.

P.S. You used the wrong phrase. Getting on like a house on fire means to get on very well......but seeing as old people generally dont embrace new technology, i understood exactly what you meant. :)

When is a house on fire a good thing?

I know I kinda meant it as sarcasm at the time.
