Paul Cosbrook, of Pukekohe, writes: “On Saturday about 5pm there was a driver who managed to get build-up behind him for most of the journey heading to Clevedon.

Success! Achievement! Advancement! Oh, and by the way, have a Merry Christmas – loser! Next year I’m going to write my own Christmas letter. It will record my knighthood and my Nobel Prize; my $1 million Lotto win and my doctorate from Harvard in Bovine Excreta Dissemination.” Got a Sideswipe?
