Unhappy Those English will do anything for a laugh

Obviously left hand drive because the doors are on the left side of the trailers. That means the driver is on the right side of the vehicle and doesn't have a good view of the left side. But in those close quarters, he should have an assistant.

He did- but my observation has been that guys don't pay any attention to their wives' frantic hand signals

When I look in the rear view mirror for instructions from the Old Bag, I see her bird-watching or talking to a neighbour. I've pretty much given up.
