Daily Prompt: It’s raining Eggs

Oh dear!

This is what might happen if you are not careful about transporting eggs from the supermarket. It could be that a heavier bag than the bag containing the eggs might fall on the bag containing the eggs: no problem. Instead of the usual fried eggs you make scrambled eggs if you manage to remove the pieces of the cracked egg shells. Note we buy our eggs generally in amount of ten, in England the custom is a dozen eggs.

I have an eggy story. Once upon a time, about 40 years ago, a family lived on the first floor of an appartment building situated at the crossroads on a busy road and there were traffic lights, leading to a stop and go situation. There was a knock on the door in the afternoon and two policemen were standing at the door. Only the man of the house was present, as the wife was shopping.

“Good afternoon, there is a problem” said the police officer. The man of the house was a law abiding citizen and was perplexed. He had not fines to pay for false parking and lead a quiet honourable life.

“We had a report from a car driver who stopped at the traffic lights. It seems that someone threw raw eggs onto their car whilst it was waiting below your building and they seemed to come from the window of your appartment.” said the policeman. The driver had reported this to the police – it was his good right of course.

“Oh” was the reply from the man of the house, not knowing what else to say. There was only one person who might, could, probably committed this unpredictable crime. Yes, if you have an autistc 7 year old at home anything could happen. The case was explained to the police, and with the remark to make sure it does not repeat itself, they left. As I said this was about 40 years ago. Words were spoken to the suspected who was warned and it never happened again.

We are a law abiding family, but just the idea of sitting in a car and eggs raining down from above is not ideal. Today we can laugh, but then it was not funny. It was a criminal offence. The car driver had to clean the window aterwards to remove the egg. It can rain many objects, but not eggs.

    • They don’t really learn lessons, they just think up the next novelty. It all happens until they are about 10 years old and then they gradually don’t see the point any more. You just get used to having eyes in the back of your head.

    • We were glad that the problem was solved with no repercussions. The Swiss don’t have hairy cars, they spend too much time washing it and the hairs don’t get a chance to grow.

  1. A very embarrassing situation but thankfully an understanding policeman. Egg is dreadful to clean from a vehicle especially once it has dried. Never had our car egged but our trains were occasionally egged when I was working for the railways and as a cleaner I had the dubious pleasure of cleaning up the mess on some occasions.
