  2. M6 north bound today , some twat in a black bmw/audi/clone type car nearly side swiped me as I indicated to move into the middle lane . I saw him coming on my last glance and aborted the change and held my line , he flew past on his way to a gap in the traffic for the Blackpool turn just off on my nearside.. and 40 tons of artic filled the gap just as he approached it , forcing him to dodge up the M6 looking for a gap as his options slowly ebbed away due to a chain of lorries blocking the lane off ... we fucking cried with laughter ......

  12. because of .... Does anyone else get nagged to death over running a banger. Had a bit of agg yesterday with our car, not the end of the world (I hope...) but it was incapacitated by a coolant leak, bit of a fucker but hopefully £120 of bits and it should be back on the road. Anyhow the comment of ‘simply get a new car on lease’ always comes round. It fucks me off for a variety of reasons that people assume I’ve got a spare £200 a month to rent a car with or like the idea the car I’ve got is within my budget and if I was out of work then I’d be owing to nobody. I get that as well , eg your fucking loaded , buy a new one you tight arse !! then I point out its cost me 400 notes to buy some 5 years back , and I can go anywhere , park anywhere and not give a shit .. and I will get some dosh back when it goes !!

  21. saw a pink fire engine today ... pink wtf I am not going into why it was pink ... but something big and pink does not register the same as something big and red heading in your direction .... even if it has bells and whistles on it ...
  22. I now like to be on the road before light fails , it helps a lot when loading up and finding the worst part of the way home .. I see our driving life is being made easier by the latest AI devices so the legal coffers can be filled .. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-10355673/New-spy-sky-camera-catch-eating-drinking-wheel-makers-say.html when it says it "addresses all forms of distraction " all forms ???? including the back seat driver ?
