Porsche gatecrashes Aldi – the ultimate in hard discounter pulling power?

Speaking to the Carmarthen Journal newspaper, store manager Tom Jones (!) said: "The chap who had the crash had just bought the car, and thought it was in reverse…..”

Reminds me of a pal in the City who picked up the keys of his first Porsche and couldn’t resist leaving work early. He went to the underground garage, switched on, touched the accelerator, shot up the ramp, took the gate off its hinges and ended up on the other side of a fortunately quiet, mid-afternoon street….

All goes to show, like in negotiation, power is often better implied than applied…

But now and again, giving it full throttle can be fun….

Have a powerful weekend, from the NamNews Team!
