ďThatís a great film. I watched it on ITV4. Mods and Rockers. The great thing was that Leslie Ash was about 19 and Sting was about 26 so it was a great mixture. A bit like an 18-30ís holiday."

Slightly surreal twist there.

Easter Weekend taxi driver asked what plans I had - told him I was off to LBB9 and he asked;

"oh yeah, what with all the duffle coats and stuff"

...then started telling me how his Dad used to have a Lambretta and "still wears his duffle coat now"... luckily I HAD TO make a phone call and avoided going into more detailed conversation.

Standing in Jump the Gun and a couple come in and ask "Do you know where the 60's / Mod shop is? "  and they weren't joking.
Maybe we didn't have enough targets on display...

Nearly everytime I'm out on my scooter, someone chirps up "Is that a Lambretta, I used to have a Lambretta how much is that worth, I only paid £5 for my TV200" blah blah blah .

Here is a stupid conversation that happened to me about 2 years ago with somebody from work

STUPID PERSON
hey mate can I ask you a question

ME
yes what can I help you with ( me assuming it was a work related question)

STUPID PERSON
well I cannot make my mind up are you a mod or are you a skinhead

ME
well I am 38 years of age family man that likes to look smart and listening to good music

STUPID PERSON
oh............ ( there was a pause then came the dreaded line) do you drive a moped to Brighton at the weekends

There you go, you could not make it up if you tried

Was on my Vespa a few years ago, dressed in a black bellstaff jacket, blue jeans and desert boots, some bloke in a dust cart starts shouting at me 'oi Jimmy, you from Quadrophenia?' I continued to ignore him and he just kept shouting louder and louder and getting more annoyed that I hadn't turned round.  Priceless :)

Got told last night that a 'mod is just an indie kid with a tidy haircut'. Explaining the little nuances in response just wasn't worth it so I plumped for 'cheers mate'.
