The grumpy thread

They have the monopoly on much of the BL stuff. The p&p bumps it up even more.

Just like CX-Basis monopolises parts for CXs, quite possibly killing viability for the British enthusiasts.

Bloody fuming!

As posted in the grin thread last week youngest (16) started work in the screwfix warehouse proper today, week of 2-10 shifts. This is after an interview last week where he had to take all his documents along including passport, ni no etc.  He went back on Thursday to do a day's induction, which had been moved till the Friday but no one had told him, did the induction day on Friday, was issued his ppe and started today.

 

During his shift he was sent home as they don't employ 16 yr olds! What a bunch of wankers!!!

I just feel so broken for him, this really was a light at the end of the tunnel and a real look at a bright future, only to be fucked about by some completely incompetent cockwomble at an agency...

Probably best to take them off and have them repaired or refurbished or copied by Speedy Cables.They are on the net.That might cost a bit but probably not more than genuine Lexus parts

What’s the score with all these moderns driving around with just one headlight on?? Are new bulbs suddenly really bad or is one headlight on now a thing? I’ve seen loads recently now it’s been getting darker earlier. 

Modern headlights so bad you cannot tell when they are on.

Slept like shit. Been awake since around 02:30.
So I'm now deafening myself listening to some Feeder whilst some fidgeting twat snores next to me.

Turns out the fucker who verbally abused my daughter wasn't Gary from upstairs. I'm very pleased I didn't beast him. Next door there is an old couple who has a druggy alchy daughter who lives a fair bit away. It was her son, their grandson who visits once a month or so. He's in his late teens and obviously has lots of issues. He's a full on wanker and apparently was screaming at a taxi driver for being 5 minutes late soon after. I will be having a word the next time I see him.

I almost feel like apologising to Gary although he won't have a clue what I'm on about.

I hate Tuesday, dropped a massive bollock with work. Meant to be putting a pop up stand in a medical show in Birmingham, got here at 6am and realised I'd brought all their kit but not the stand. I did not enjoy the phone calls I've just had to make 😣

I was away ski-ing once. I went downstairs where we were staying to get my ski's only to find that my mate Paul had locked them up and buggered off with the key. 

I slowly waddle down the hill to the slopes and see Paul in all his ski-ing gear queuing to get on the lift. 

I go up to him and start having a right rant at him for being a dick and locking up my skis and the fact I've just had to walk all the way down the fucking hill and will now have to walk all the fucking way back up again, reiterating several times about what a cunt he is. 

Just as I'm finishing, out of the corner of my eye I see Paul about 20ft away, wearing exactly the same ski gear as this poor French guy whose just had some nutcase with a Keith Flint haircut screaming at him in English about for for the last couple of minutes. I've no idea if he understood a word of it or not. Hopefully not.

It's a split coolant hose on the CX sez Monsieur Loizou and, for good measure, it's not one that even CX-Basis list. It has a tapered section with branches going off.....

Samco could probably make one from scratch but that would take weeks.

Missed out on a decent looking,lengthy MOT'd MX5 Mk1 that had been mistakenly stuck in a very obscure/incorrect part of an auction site, someone got a £281 bargain and it wasn't me, I've given the seller a nudge to contact me if he get's messed about

Wasn't that white one was it?

 

 

*Edit: It must have been, just seen what it ended up at. Offered him £375 last time round, which he declined. Was going to bid tonight, but waiting to hear back from someone about another motor so bottled it.

According to eBay it's already been despatched, so someone must have either paid, or collected quickly. Think that was (at least) it's third appearance, tbh was a bargain at £500, so £281 was a steal.

Sure was a steal, my daughter loves MX5's ,she's only 16 but would have been a great Xmas surprise for her but I wasn't going to run away bidding without having seen underneath the bugger , I don't need a 2nd rusty undercarriage here as the wife's is bad enough :)

WHY would you advertise a 7 year old £4k car and then not disclose on the advert that it has no MOT?

It was just what I was looking for to replace the Mini as well.

There must be a good reason...

The bloody woman I told months ago that 'I really am NOT interested' is still pestering me. Mark came up today to have a 'quiet' word with me as she collared him yesterday to sound out how I feel about her! He did tell her but he reckons she 'ain't listening' and she really isn't. Thank God she doesn't know where I live!

Short of telling her to 'FUCK off!' what else can I do?

Went to Liverpool for an interview with an agency for a specific job. All went well,  hours and money sound great, that'll do me. Passed on going to another two interviews for the same job in different areas on strength of it. Today was induction day, a 30 odd mile round trip. Gets there, very nice bloke from the company involved, but the hours are totally different to what's stated (half the amount, and every Saturday in) so jibbed that idea.

 

It was only part-time, just for a few weeks over Chrimbo.

2 doors up who told me to shift my car the other day, has started to put her wheelie bin in the road to stop others parking there. Bear in mine the street is quite empty.
For some reason, that I can't quite put my finger on, this has made me very angry indeed. It's totally irrational but I want to launch her fucking bin through her fucking window. 7b533c5557d1ee9f3adaa8057d31302b.jpg
