No, it wasn't a gay-date tryst courtesy of Flickr - why, the very idea for an Alpha like me? . Allow me to explain: I bought a car from a dealership about 120 miles distant from where I live, and for reasons that are none of your business, to save my having to make the journey to collect it, I arranged with the sales guy for the exchange (my then-current car being part of the purchase, with a cash settlement) to be done in my local Sainsbury's car park. When I arrived there after receiving the previously-arranged telephone signal that he'd arrived, I saw the car, but the driver, named Steve, was nowhere to be seen. Assuming he'd gone into Sains. for a coffee after the long drive, I looked for him in the restaurant. It was quite crowded, and I noticed two guys at different tables with coffee cups in front of them. I asked one 'Sorry to bother you - are you Steve?' He wasn't. So I asked the other one 'Scuse me, is your name Steve?' to which he replied, 'No I'm afraid not.' to which I replied (quick as a flash, as is my legendary wit) 'What, you wish it was?'
