I mean, the first bang anyone hears, everyone runs off like their pants are on fire.
But seriously, If they were carrying on as normal they'd be at work, not milling about in the streets looking so morose.
Who are all these people; don't they have jobs to go to?
I mean, what's the etiquette here?
Do you take time off work to go and lay flowers? If you do, is it as holiday or sick leave?
Do you take the kids(?), as I mean, what a day out; some people clearly do.
And what about the flowers and candles; what's the etiquette there?
How long do you leave them there for and what happens if they (candles) start a fire?
What if it's too windy or raining to light them?
How long until the council road sweeper can clear them up, as technically it's rubbish.
And who makes the decision they can be swept up, the road sweeper or the council?
Not only that but I mean, how much do you spend on 'stuff' to leave?
It's like some sort of arms race of grief where you have to leave something bigger and better than anyone else, just to demonstrate you care more.
You get it all the time at these incidents and accident spots; I've seen all sorts left.
I'm just waiting for someone to leave a motorbike or boat. That would be good.
I wonder what the protocol would be there. Would you get a parking ticket? Could you be prosecuted for fly tipping?
Could it be towed away? Would it have to be insured?
Most importantly, if you got away with leaving such a large item as that, what would be the protocol for it to be disposed of?
Finally, I wonder how long it will be before we can have a new quango, specifically in charge of sites where people have died or had accidents.
They could have their own 'Chief executive' on £150,000 a year, their own logo and award themselves their own made up awards.
You know, like the 'Charter Mark', an award for 'Customer Excellence', or even a coveted 'Investor In People' award.
They could be called something like the 'Accident and death Response Service and Empathy agency'.
Or, as the establishment yes men who flourish in these 'Jobs for the boys' networks love having an acronym; A.R.S.E. for short.
