    No consequence for being an anti social selfish cunt.   
    Add minimal help or understanding for those with mental disabilities from Joe public & yobbos.
    Finally add in panic and fear, and you get a boiling pot.

    National Express are cutting services right back from Tuesday as a result of coronavirus, so I'm temporarily transferring back to local bus to help out.

    In a previous iteration I was a support worker for peeps with learning difficulties 
    One of the more able ones once rocked up to shared house with a new cycle from Halfords complete with rigid forks backwards, non functioning rear brake and no batteries in front or rear lights.
    More than a little incensed I rounded up the troops into the mini bus we had, threw the bike in the back and returned to Halfords.
    The staff were adamant someone had fucked with the bike and weren't keen to do much about it.
    To the manager I  pointed out the chaos which his store had descended into. Two were playing a version of pooh stick with bicycle tyres in the isles, a lad with adhd was running around the store with his arms held out making engine noises having a whale of a time, another lad obsessive with prices was in the process of taking every single item to the till for a price check.
    To the manager I said quietly, the longer you fuck me about the longer this lot destroy your store.
    Told me to come back in a hour when all would be sorted and would chuck in accessories as well.

    I'm starting a new thread, and hopefully turning over a new leaf (no, I'm not getting a bloody electric car). 
    From now on, I'm going to buy and run what the hell I want, and have fun doing so.
    I realise that a lot of what I do isn't exactly the 'Autoshite way', but then I've always been a bit of a inbetweener, not cool enough for Retro Rides, too nice for Piston heads, too childish for Autoshite, and too random for any one make sites. 
    So yeah, I might spray a bonnet or wheels in Poundland rattle cans, or add a tacky roof rack, but that's just me, take it or leave it. 
    I do have a car being delivered this weekend, so no collection thread I'm afraid. But wait and see what 'horror' appears next!

    I rescued the entire North Shields fish quay on Saturday morning while out with the dog.
    I spotted the jetty bit on fire and rang the brigade. I used what 3 words and they turned up in 5 minutes flat.

    Nope. Lady stole a bunch of baby clothes, hoofed it in the parking lot to make a swift getaway, hit a pole and upended her car.

    No money...then no.  Run away.
    An overhaul of the front brakes alone can run into four figures...never mind anything else.
    They are biblically expensive to sort, and let's not forget that they enjoy rusting too.
    There's inevitably a reason it was parked up in the first place too.

    Boss mails us at 6.30pm telling us we need to have all our sales plans redrafted by 9am tomorrow to reflect how client meetings will fall owing to Corona stuff.  
    Made it quite clear that as we are working from home activity levels will be closely monitored and there are no excuses for failing to be busy.  In fact as we won’t have to commute our hours will now be 8am to 7pm and he will be calling on video to check we are at our workstations in the mornings and evenings.
    What an absolute fucking prick.

    One could argue that AC's own Model 70 also belongs in this thread 
    given it replaced the very similar Looking Model 67 much like the Cobra replaced the Ace!
    with the Model 67 having a 8.5Hp 197cc single cylinder Villiers engine and a top speed of about 45Mph, compared to the Model 70's 20HP 493cc flat twin and a top speed of 82Mph!
    if we look at it regarding percentages, it actually matches the Ace vs Cobra quite well, for example both the Cobra and the Model 70 had over twice the amount of power the model they replaced
    the Model 70 even had flared wheel arches like the Cobra LOL
    Model 67

    Model 70

    its all relative I guess LOL

    Sadly Nurofen Plus has codeine in and as such is pharmacy only.
    I did eventually manage to get through to the GP surgery this afternoon on the phone.  They currently aren't booking anything whatsoever (phone or otherwise) other than for emergencies, and cannot advise when they will be changing that. 
    They've also advised that as I am officially firmly in an "at risk" group, that I should be immediately taking action.  Their advice is that I should immediately cut off all contact with the outside world (including isolating myself from my housemates as they're still having to venture to work at the moment, especially Abby who's still having to take the train into Central London daily), and plan on not setting foot out the door for at least the next 12 weeks unless it's a matter of life or death.
    Um...Yeah.  Let's see how that goes...

    I went to see a car yesterday, but it was misfiring, EML was on, and an HT lead was arcing out. 
    Obviously I turned it down, but someone else bought it. 
    So what happens if you attempt to drive a car with this issue? Buyer is trying to recoup his losses on this...
