What makes you grin? Antidote to grumpy thread

Recommended Posts

After 4 years of arguing with the local council about my rates and the amount I pay and being given a £16000 bill last year which I obviously disagreed with( !) I received a letter this morning saying.... Yep, I am right and they are wrong!!!!! :)   :)    :)    

So I owe them £775 not £16000 a tiny bit better I feel.

Got the passat through another mot for only 33 quid and a bit of swearing.  All four top suspension arms and a roll bar link changed out.  Chinese shite parts but they didnt seem too bad  and its only an old diesel for the commute so should be ok.  The infamous pinch bolts werent too bad, one side was done recently so moved ok and the other needed a little blow torch therapy but didnt put up too much of a fight.

Happy with that so will use the lockdown to go a bit two bucket wrong un on the fleet.

I have to wonder how much this would be worth, if it wasnt almost empty and eight years past its use by date .....

Discovered in a bag we used on holiday a long time ago

£6.95 - because I bought something similar in a shop in Ealing a couple of weeks ago for that money. Bit shocked at the price but we needed some and that’s all there was. Got it home and found it was made in 2009!

GR8 news, M8, the spare £235 should easily cover your fuel home.

Anyone for gravy, a twin pack, bogof, with bonus free train travel on British Rail.... Unfortunately the train freebie expired over 38 and a bit years ago! 

There's no use by date so it must still be good to eat, aaaah Bisto! 158523120587256048602445913653.thumb.jpg.2c51bb34d50c69404c34a5a2ef4095ed.jpg15852317418993500066070413878343.thumb.jpg.da44494e8a28c7066dfd4d6b7d78e22b.jpg

Today, after asking the Mrs an innocent question I learnt : "no matter how many times you ask me, I will never have any baler twine"

I didn't bother to ask if she had any old pairs of tights to cut up.

Every day's a school day and all that.

I have just seen a stupid advert for one of those credit check companies. It has a bloke looking sadly at his battered Mk2 Ford Escort, then checking his credit score, eventually ending up with an Audi. In reality he could probably sell the Escort and buy an Audi outright without borrowing.

If this lurgy keeps up I'll be OK, probably got enough booze in the house to stay permanently pissed for about a year, usually I don't drink at home but put me down the pub and I can do about 10 pints and a few shorts in a few hours.... But the recovery time does appear to be taking longer 🤯😎🤪
