My Favourite Brussels anecdote

I once hired a car and chauffer to convey the chairman of a major UK regulator on a visit to the European Parliament.  The chauffer and I stepped out of the car in Rue Wiertz to speak to Parliament security.  A moment later I saw my reputation and career slowly but relentlessly disappearing as the car, with chairman inside, picked up speed down Rue Wiertz. The chauffer had forgotten to put the handbrake on.  Luckily the chauffer was a fast runner!
