Dont you just love some teenage gobshite with a hard-man attitude telling you the facts* because he has worked in a parts store for eighteen months and is an expert on everything?

 

Oh really? you NEED my registration number to check the fitment of this universal 40mm exhaust clamp before you sell it to me do you? Right, well its for a custom thing that your precious computer wont list, so lets not bother eh? Oh, you want to write "guarantee void" in big letters on my receipt because you think I am going to "misuse" it? well, you go right ahead if that makes you feel better, the receipt was going in the bin outside your door anyway.  :roll:

 

 

 

 

I dunno man. Its not just garages either.....I dont know if its an "Im getting older and less tolerant" thing or if its a "young folk are getting more cuntish" thing. I find it impossible to spend any length of time in a public place without wanting to zap someone in the face with a cattle prod.

 

Its an everybodys more cuntish thing, young or old. latest example, went to a massive breakers yard last week as i had it on good authority they had a Jetta in, theyve about 700 cars, everything from scrapped to accident damaged stuff thats now had a CoD issued, burnt out wrecks and a for sale section where they are selling off damaged repairable moderns, Goes in, guy "what you after" I said "any Jettas in, i need a few various bits and pieces, trim, interior, exterior trim, etc." he goes "gives 5 mins im busy the now with someone else" he then says "what year?" i said mines a 2009 but any Jetta from 2005 to 2010 will be the same as mine and should hopefully have what I need, same with mk5 Golfs" he says "i cant walk round the full yard showing you all the Golfs ive got theres loads" so he takes me to this Jetta, has a pen and a notepad and says right tell me what you want and ill list it and give you a price, i said I need various bits but i cant remember absolutely everything, Ill know as I work round the car and bring it all to the desk for a price" he says no you wont, im not leaving you alone with a car to take bits off thats not how we work, tell you what make a list of what you need and come back another day and hand me it and ill let you know if its there and a price, cos otherwise youre just wasting my time and your own. Absolute jobsworth.

 

I couldve found other stuff on a high spec Golf I didnt need as a necessity but wouldve bought if I saw something I wanted for my car and didnt know they had it. Similarly I couldve seen an Audi/Passat/Scirocco or something with nice wheels on it I wanted to buy, guy wouldve made more money out of me, everyones happy, why do you necessarily need a specific part before you go to a scrappy? Seems most are heading this way now, and I got the impression this yard was the sort where the prices wouldnt be far off the price of a brand new part! I dont mind if theyve already removed a part, if you go to a car and you see something you want and its not fitted and you ask, and theyve got it on a shelf, fair enough, saves me removing it. 

 

By comparison I went to another in Paisley and Renfrew, the Paisley one I told the guy I was after a Golf, he said "theyre all down there, help yourself" and as such he made 20quid out of me on an interior mirror and a couple of switches, not mega money but stuff I wouldnt have bought if I wasnt left to look around the car and see what it had on it. Renfrew place advised me where all their Golfs were dotted about and werent arsed when they saw me looking around Passats, Polos, Audis, Seat's etc. and just said when I was leaving, not find what you were after? i should have more Golfs in at the end of the week, just come back down and try again. 

 

I get that folk may rob daft little bits, not that I condone it, but for the sake of stuff worth about 2 quid all in to them like trim clips or screws, for letting someone have a wander they could end up with a couple of hundred quid for an interior, or wheels, or panels or an engine or box.

Thing is I can see where the breaker is coming from, my local scrappy is an old style help yourself one (the owner is about to retire and is winding down slowly) people take the absolute piss when removing parts, absolutely trashing the car to get what they need , rather than taking it apart properly, this means the scrappy is losing money from that car as someone who may need a different part finds that its fucked because its been trashed by the bloke wanting the bit behind it.

My grandad passed away this evening, didn't quite make his 90th that he had been planning.

A true shiter having owned a rotten green Viva, a blue Marina Estate then an A reg Ital estate in red. Only last year he was sorting out his loft and found a BNIB Austin Meastro water pump that he gladfully donated to a fellow shiter of this parish.

RIP grandad it was always a pleasure.

This is Larkhall where lived last year before moving to London. Fiat FTP'ed a few days before the grand move and was (until yesterday) still loaded to the gills with boxes and moving house stuff. There was £400 worth of office chair in the back* but the idiots would rather faff about ripping out a £40 radio! Easier to conceal I suppose... I don't want to do the area down though, we lived a few miles out of the town and never really had any issues. Why did I choose that place to fix and MoT? It was the nearest place walkable from the train station for the collection.

 

*Seicentos are like vans with the seats down

 

Larkhall where they are so staunchly Protestant the curbstones are painted red, white and blue.

Fuck me, I can't afford another £180 tyre. So I pull over, bugger all wrong. I've reset the tyre system and hopefully it's fixed.

This should really be in the grin thread but I'm not grinning so meh! Without going into mahoosive detail on a public forum, on Thursday I was in court and found not guilty of a crime I didn't even commit anyway, should be grinning about that, but on the same day I find out I've been getting lied to for weeks upon weeks, stabbed in the back, painted as a horrible monster and made out a creep and a nutter, and something I was majorly looking forward to which got me through all the time awaiting the trial date has gone to shit and I feel very empty. I could go out and do anything I wanted right now but I don't know what to do with myself, struggling to even get out of bed.

One of my mates died the other day. Used to go drinking with him in the 90's, he was one those characters who just always made you laugh, proper 'life and soul' job and never ha d a dull second with him. He collapsed and died in the street in his 40's :(

Aye, but naw - seriously, how the fuck? Is it gold plated or needs gold balance weights or is it some stupid fuckwitted size or something?


17" Goodyear I think. But don't forget, fitting, disposal, other bullshit fees etc.

If you're going to have a funky car, have it in a funky colour.

Top bullshit comments regarding the 305 today:

1. Old boy [upon hearing the 305's exhaust slap into the underside] "Now then young man, that's your propshaft."
Me: It doesn't have a propshaft, it's front wheel drive.
OB: Now, now, I've been working on cars for 30 years, longer than you've been alive.
Me: You're getting this confused with a 505. This is a 305. They were always front wheel drive.
*OB walks round the back of the car, mutters to himself and buggers off*

2. Car in front stops at the end of and exit slip road despite their lane following round, merging and terminating at the mini roundabout. They sit there for nearly a minute, with no traffic in the vicinity, until I flash my lights. Their rear seat passengers look at me boggle eyed and gesticulate. As they peel off for another junction, we end up side by side at a set of lights.

[I can't do a heavy Norfolk accent so you'll have to imagine it].

Driver: Someone with a car in that state doesn't get to tell me how to drive.
Me: So because my car's old, I don't know what I'm doing? You don't stop on a merge lane, mate. You stop at the roundabout further along the road after it merges with the lane.

My filter lit and he was still gibbering on spouting bollocks so I drove off.

Moneybags had a 14 plate Vauxhall Zafira, for the record. If we're going to make sweeping judgements, I think that says it all.
