Me: At the next roundabout we will be turning right, so take the second exit.
Pupil: How do you know the second exit is a right turn?
Me: If the exit is past 12 o’clock, then it is classed as a right turn and we handle it that way.
Pupil: Oh, ok… so in the afternoon it’s a right hand turn?

My pupil and I were on a normal lesson, driving down a relatively narrow road. In the distance I saw a lorry approaching quite quickly; a new experience for my pupil.
Me: OK, what could we do to reduce risk in this situation?
Pupil: Sh*t! Cover my eyes and try not to panic!
It could have been worse – that first exclamation mark could have been a comma.
