“You! Yes you! Come here! Italiano? No? You look Italian. Speak English? OK. I am from Emporio Armani. I have been here for London Fashion Week. I am now driving to Gatwick for the Fashion Week in Milan. I have four leftover samples in the back seat.”

Point 1: he was very smart, probably actually Italian, driving a brand new Golf
Point 2: I am not Italian, nor have ever been mistaken for one

Point 4: Milan Fashion Week is around the same time.
Point 5: If you’re coming from central London and heading for Gatwick and you hit the Tulse Hill one-way system, you’re either lost or lying.
