|Dear Connie, if you came here nobody would know what you were talking about! The reason I got hit hit by the skip was easy. I was Head Gardener at Greenwich and had only just met Sarah, I intended to be at Muriel's house at 6 o' clock so Sarah and I could go for a drink. At Greenwich we had a slope that led into this pit, this enabled the gardeners to tip their rubbish into the skip from a wheelbarrow and not have to do it by hand, therefore saving time. Someone had put two traffic cones on the slope, so as the new skip arrived I went to move them, as the skip was swinging on its chains from the truck the driver could not see me at all. At the last moment the security guard did and screamed at the driver, he hit the brakes and the skip hit me. It lifted me up and knocked me into a cast iron fence. I woke up in Greenwich Hospital with broken ribs; then looking at the time I realized I was going to be late to meet Sarah, but I managed to get there by nearly 8 o'clock, and Sarah thought I had dumped her (split up). Which I hadn't at all.
So using your language, Sarah thought I had dumped her because I got hit by a dumpster!
