I carded someone in Waitrose carpark Stratford Upon Avon.

Pulled in to park in front of Waitrose near Stratford-Upon-Avon about 3pm yesterday and two cars across was a lovely SLK 230 R170 in bright red. The bloke was just checking his engine. I thought great, I’ve got time to go and speak to him. Found out he’s part of the MB Club, but I got the car all ready sand carded him. He seemed pretty impressed at my tenacity and we may see him online soon! Yay. My first carding.

What does carding someone mean? I'm probably just behind the times
