I spent today working in a GP surgery that has a very tight car park, they were having a drop in flu vac session. I was able to observe a veritable cavalcade of giffer madness, impossible reversing, clutch burning and a stand off between a dacia something and a honda jizz that caused two 70 something dudes to get out of their cars and threatening to twat each other , Jizz owner decided to show who was boss when pulling out only to reverse by mistake and bump into a member of parliaments Audi Q ninety twelve.....Twas nearly the bestest day ever

I'm sure I have mentioned before that I'm a sucker for charity shops, endlessly filling my life with other people's discarded crap.
Today I couldn't resist this
attachicon.gif20181107_160643.jpg
A nice, boxed pewter tankard, why the grin? Imagine draining your beer to be greeted by this
attachicon.gif20181107_160613.jpg

I'm assuming it's a promotional item, possibly given to people to drown their sorrows having purchased a Vauxhall

It's like draining your beer and finding the King's shilling at the bottom; the horror! :D This requires recording for posterity on the giffer trinket and general tat thread.

Having to lie to children, in a nice way.

 

Neighbour's kid, about 4 or 5 yrs old, has often come and spraffed to me when I'm working on me chod. He took a liking to the 45. Observant kid noticed it wasn't around any more. His Dad was with him.

 

Kid : "Where's the red one gone ?"

Me (looks at Dad) : "Er, it's, er, gone to the farm"

(Dad nods his understanding)

Kid : "Why's it gone to the farm ?"

Me (looks at Dad for moral support): "Er..."

Dad : "I think he means it's gone to the hospital"

Kid: "Ah, okay then"

 

I'm dreading the next conversation.

obviously now you have to go out and buy another Red Rover 45 and hope the kid doesn't notice  :mrgreen:

 

on a more serious note I would of prolly been honest with the poor kid no point setting up false expectations that will only be dashed

 

(unless you do get another Rover 45 :) )

Just saw this rock up outside the office. A chap in his late 30s/early 40s was in it. I gave him a thumbs up and he repeated the gesture.

This is no show queen and looks very much to be a daily driver. A very rare thing for old air cooled Porsches. Usually they're stashed away in a humidity controlled garage, rarely to go outside to preserve an "investment". So to be parked up on the side of a street in 2018 Bristol is a very unusual and rare thing.

Being ill and staying at home so as not to infect colleagues (I detest 'martyrs' who go in when they feel shit then spread their lurgy onto all and sundry) - not the grin.

 

The grin is being able to spend some time under the bonnet of a car to take my mind off my 'swallowing razor blades' sore throat, cough and snuffles (see also 'man flu'), and continue my acquaintance with the new chodder.

I love eBay's algorithms.

 

Because I bought an offside front Yaris doorhandle last year, its adbots reckon I'm some sort of offside front doorhandle collector and are constantly trying to tempt me with further purchases that might be of interest.

 

An offside front doorhandle for a BMW E36, sir?

 

How about an offside front doorhandle for a Skoda Octavia? No?

 

Come on then, an offside front doorhandle for a Mazda 6, surely?

 

WHAT DO WE HAVE TO DO TO MAKE YOU BUY MORE LOVELY DOORHANDLES????

 

 

It's impressively stupid, since if they were to dangle some Yaris spark plugs or air filters in my eyeline, I'd probably order them up there and then.
