The grumpy thread

There is a rumour - unsubstantiated at this stage - that you can (wait for this) FIX them. IKR. Madness.

Seriously, if it’s the right car in the right spec then just fix it. It’ll likely never need doing again. 

I try to look at cars through the same prism as houses. If your roof leaks, you don’t fucking bulldoze it. Maintenance is key, as is long term ownership - and expect the odd unexpected bill. Other than that, enjoy.

I’m about to have my 165 year old house underpinned and I don’t even bloody live in it. 

If you really love something, do the right thing. 

I can put you onto a brilliant mobile Rover man who’ll have it done for £300 on your driveway. 

PM sent - I need my 820 Vitesse sorting.

It's already been the week (and last month or so) from hell, and things just keep taking another turn for the worse.

I can't and don't want to say too much, but my daughter was the (alleged) victim in something deeply unpleasant and we're hoping this week it'll all be over. You think you've turned a corner, but something else gets thrown at you.

I’m not one to complain but honestly, what a prick.

While I was parked up a taxi parked in the same position too, right outside the door and as you can see, over two disabled spaces. 

(Naturally I didn’t go over and insist they move, I’m a natural born keyboard warrior)

At work today.The gravel area on the right is where most people park,the tarmac in the middle is where artics drive down to unload.

I thought the SUV thing was reversing into a space,but it was still there 10 minutes later 🙄

It's in situations like that where my old Subaru 700 van used to come in handy.  It would just squeeze into a space like the one between the Audi and the [generic grey crossover thing], and I'd then exit via the tailgate. 

 

Well it amused me anyway.

What came first?  The Audi or the wanker??

I've got an Audi, so fuck you :)

There's a thread for all you parking whingers on Pistonheads, called 'the bad parking thread' surprisingly.

Edited just to say you have redeemed yourself a little with your second comment you posted whilst I was adding my reply:)

Apparently we're sharing the living room with this fucker...

Didn't spot where it ended up going so basically the living room is now cordoned off. d11394db0c959c2a30d6e3af15e2d1b9.jpgdc1e2081f4a9afce0d2990a5ae0122dc.jpg

I've chucked a few out of the window this week but one as big as a mouse has just traversed the floor where I'm sitting at the computer.

A new couple moved in downstairs. Long story short, they guy is an absolute nutjob, screaming his head off most the day like something from the exorcist. Doors slamming, loud bangs, glass smashing, horrendous abusive screams, Threats of "i'll fuck you up you rat", I've never, ever heard anything like this.  Even when someone was murdered more or less right outside my front door a few years back. It's well beyond simple anger, the guy is unhinged in the extreme.

The woman in the house is certainly in danger, and to be honest, i fear everyone in the close is in danger given he sounds like he's liable to torch the place at any second half the time.

Police were up taking statements from all the neighbours this evening, but my guess is he's that out of control, he'll just see it as interference and do something.
