tapir

First time for everything

It's very popular to say that one shouldn't regret new experiences, each one helps you grow as a person and other trite crap.

This morning was a first - in my rush to get to a meeting I didn't notice I'd parked in a Pay and Display zone (around the corner from my usual "Not-Pay and Display zone").

So that's £30 down the tubes then...

More haste, less speed - as my primary school English teacher said at one of the most mortifying experiences of my life, when I thought I was very smug at having finished an exercise first of the class, and had gotten most of them wrong.

This is not to be confused with ruana1's "Go back and do it again".
