No beating Bridgy but Taunton is absolutely terrible these days.

I went to college at Bridgwater. Laughing out loud There used to be a website (internet had only just taken off back then, especially in Bridgwater) dedicated to the nutters, of which there are very many.

There was one man who used to walk around and pretend he was driving a truck. Making the noises and steering, reversing whilst beeping etc. He used to get served at the drive-through at mcdonalds. Laughing out loud

I've heard many a story about this guy - including one from a mate's dad that involved him getting a group of shoppers to help him reverse park his particularly unwieldy imaginary articulated lorry into an ASDA loading bay.
I actually played a basketball game at Bridgwater college sports hall the other day - i don't think it will have changed much since you've were last there.

Could be a penguin moment but we had a guy in Hartlepool who we called Johnny Car who was just like this, you would talk to him and the crank would pretend to wind his window down and ask you what you just said as he couldn't hear you as his window was up. CSB
