It's interesting, as the response in the UK, even on the roughest sink estate would be: ''Wait to I get my hands on him! I'll show him, don't you worry!''

Meanwhile, the son has just turned up on his bicycle instead of the car. The missus has gone into war mode.

Best to just let it go, but my missus being who she is, will not let this lie now. She's in mega-apple eating mode, this means it's serious!

No point getting enraged. Let it go, with good intent and innuendo and gossip as the ultimate back-stop!

Chris Rea being interviewed on his first Ferrari:

“Yeah. It was instant disappointment. [Pink Floyd drummer] Nick Mason said to me once, ‘Chris, do yourself a favour. Stop trying to make excuses about all this. You’re a sad bastard. It could have been heroin. But it’s red cars.’ And he was right. There was nowhere to drive the fucking thing. Y’know, you put it in your garage. You didn’t want anyone to know you had it. Then you take it out, and you couldn’t find anywhere you could do more than 40 miles an hour. I’m a competent driver. I’ve raced at Monza. But it’s a terrible thing.”
