What made you UNHAPPY today!

Recommended Posts

@andydclements sounds like a good idea to back out and mark up as a close call.

 

My irritant for today - people who can’t keep their vehicles between the kerbs. Builders who park on grass verges, HGV drivers who drag their trailers over traffic islands because they can’t be bothered to take a wide turn and people who’d rather stick 2 wheels up the verge than wait 3 seconds for the car coming the other way to pass. 

The verges round here look like the Somme every winter. 


A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

Try driving a truck when cars are parked irresponsibly ........

Don't get me started on dimwit truck drivers who block a 2 lane motorway for almost 2 miles at 54mph trying to overtake each other uphill with a speed difference of less than 1 mph...

Accepted, it happens, but too often it is impatience or laziness and frankly not giving a shit.

There are a number of traffic islands round our way where HGV drivers do it regularly, its not a parking issue as they are double yellow and most of the lorry drivers manage to keep it on the road. Funny enough when the council were repairing them and put a fecking great lump of concrete there they managed not to do it, yet the day after the repair is done and the bollard removed there are 2 bloody great troughs in the grass.

I watched a bloke the other week get held up for miles.  i was behind him.  Eventually the lorry pulled in and then this guy in a small van pulled infront of the lorry and slowed down to probably 30mph.  I could see the lorry driver going mad.  Later on due to traffic I came across him again and he did the exact same thing again to another lorry.  Whilst this isnt the answer I did feel it was showing the lorry drivers that their actions just are not acceptable.

Engine management light on. O2 censer I think. BMW say book me in earliest 6th March. Typical useless service from overpriced main dealer. 


Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk - that will teach us to keep mouth shut!

My mobile was stolen last night during Mardi Gras. Fortunately all locked down including the Sim so no use to anyone. Remote erase done and insurance claim initiated.

Ok. Public information message for the older generation.

Make sure you place a security pin code on your Sim card. That way if someone steals your phone they cannot just take the Sim out, place it in their own phone and rack up bills even though your own phone May be secure (pin or fingerprint). It will be in the security settings of your phone.

Ensure your phone is locked with strong pin.

Android (probably similar for Apple) has security items for your Android devices. Log into google.com and select your account from top left icon. Select security. Scroll down until you find devices. There is a lost or stolen menu for each device.

Locate phone

Ring phone

Lock phone and place message on lock screen (lost phone call this)

Erase phone

Choose as appropriate

Bloody car insurance.

"We can't quote you"

Why?

Computer says no.

Computer says £83625295 please. And a kidney.

Hate trying to sort business car insurance, its a joke. 

Although I will thank it once, couldn't get insurance on a Hilux because it's classed as a van ( no idea why ) and I have no van experience, so couldn't get a quote, despite having my license for about 5 years at the time. Forced me into a normal car for work use thank god.

Don’t know if I should be happy or unhappy, Dad was given a few months to live back in July & surprised us with how well he was doing until a couple of months ago. As of this morning he’s no longer suffering, the last few weeks have been hell as he deteriorated, crying with pain & begging the staff at the Sue Ryder Hospice to put him out of his misery. All they could do was give him medication that meant we could no longer chat but now he is free, so tonight I raise a glass & shed a tear, night Dad.

Well that seems like a life time ago, for various reasons today was finally the funeral, emotional service but the wake was lovely, although Dad retired nearly 22 years ago he spent his entire career at the same place & did well, a few patents, design council & queens awards & was rewarded with a fantastic turnout of old work colleagues, a lot older than he was & I hadn’t seen them in years plus friends and his huge family, he’d have loved it...

Bugger...…

Peugeot 3008 started misfiring. Needs a new engine - £9k.

Not going to happen. 😨

Glad I've got some extra cars to use in it's place.

 

Anyone want it?
