Top Gear

Originally published by on 20/09/2017

Henri had a morbid fear of losing personal items while travelling, particularly umbrellas, hats, coats and briefcases. His track record in this regard was poor.

On the Eurostar at Gare du Nord, Henri had neatly organised his items on the luggage rack. At London St Pancras, he collected his belongings and exited the train.

Well into his taxi ride to his final destination, he suddenly remembered his hat. He raced back to St Pancras and explained his sadness at the Lost Property Office.

“Is this missin’ ’at similar to wot you’re wearing now, sir?'

His hand flew upwards.

“Mon chapeau!'
