Text Of The Day

From todays Hawkes Bay Today:

`Truck Driver. The centre line is what you keep to the left. Perhaps you have to brake and wait until it is clear for you to cross over it.' Unattributed.

A road hog maybe.

If the centre line is on this guys left then the rest of us are in serious trouble if we meet this idiot coming head on at us left-side driving Kiwis...

Come on now, James. You don't expect truck drivers to be literate do you?

He just left the word 'of' off the end of his sentence.

Perhaps he meant to say:-

'The centre line is that of which you keep to the left.'

But then he wouldn't be a truckie. He's be a political studies student preparing for a career in the Labour Party.
