Weld sparks in the ear are the reason I wear earplugs when welding!

Hell, not the Bentley? I must admit getting paint done on a car seems to automatically attract every scratch and car park ding going. Saw a ding on the n/s front yesterday that definitely wasn't there before. Must have been a car door.

Overtook someone in a Astra GTC thing just then - quiet road, good visibility, dry conditions. They were doing about 35mph in a 50

Cue horn blaring and light flashing

Stop at a junction further ahead where I'm turning right and wait for them to catch up to find out what's fallen off the Laguna this time

"What's the problem?"
"Bit dangerous overtaking innit? And you've got a brake light out"
"No traffic and I can see for miles, how is it dangerous?"
"You've got a brake light out"
"How does that make an overtake dangerous?"
"You've got a brake light out"
"You've got a brake light out"

On the way to Tesco this morning and nearly went into the side of some moron in a small red 65 plate thing. I don't know what it was coz anything new I don't have a clue. 

Urban dual carriage way with roundabouts. Me outside lane, her inside lane at roundabout. Instead of following her lane round she cuts straight into mine as I'm alongside her. I had to slam the brakes on and blast the horn after which she wobbled around and got back on her side of the road. Probably on a phone. Did feel like putting the corner of mine into the soft side of hers but didn't need the insurance hassle, especially as they put your insurance up even if its not your fault. 

It isn't the first time I've had that round here. Stupid, curse word for a woman.

I take it this happens elsewhere but round hear its nearly every effing day.

Had one of those friday. Loooooooooooong straight wide road so I went past some doddering fucknugget doing 40-45 in a 60. Lots of horn blasting & lights flashing etc before I was even alongside them. I had my parents in my car with me & my dad whos near 80 said 'what a moron, they shouldn't be driving' :)

 

FFS, fuck nuggets.

I've learnt to out brake them just in case, once your slightly in front even their limited brain power notices you there.

Well, if you're in front then you've claimed the corner by racing rules so it's all good as far as I can see (and I'm sure* the police and insurance would back me up on that).
