The grumpy thread


Recommended Posts

Wickes timber really is dogshit sometimes. I remember ordering a load from them a few years back, probably 40x 4x2s. The bloke turned up to deliver it and after picking through them I just told him to take the lot back - they were all so bent they wouldn't even flipping stack! you'd think twice about using it for firewood!

Obviously it's the woman's fault but the BMW driver seems to have made no attempt to slow down either before or after the collision, just ploughed into her and then into a parked car that wasn't even in the same street. Was he even awake?

Maybe he got a face full of airbag and pushed his hands away from the wheel? Also might have bent the rack/suspension and so couldn't steer where he was going.

If there are a dozen lengths of 2.4m 3x2 CLS in Wickes, how many are we saying will be a) straight b) not split or sappy? 

Not one single fucking length. I mean what are you honestly expecting to build with fucking bowed stud timber. 

The thinner lengths are even worse. Great if you want to build a large egg, otherwise......

Yes,he was belting along at 21mph when she drove past a give way into him.

Yes, and made absolutely no attempt to avoid a collision. Driving at a sensible speed is no good if you don't pay attention to what's going on around you.

He's a serial dashcam video poster too.

Collision 1 is her fault, but he's totally exaggerated the whole thing to make for a better video.  If he'd only have lightly tapped the i3 brakes at 20 mph he'd have never ploughed in to the white car (collision 2).

ROAD ACCIDENT INVESTIGATORS OF AUTOSHITE HAVE EXAMINED BOTH VEHICLES AND THE SITE OF THE CRASH, AND CONCLUDED THAT THE BMW DRIVER IS AT FAULT. THERE WILL BE NO DISCUSSION. 

Fuck off you massive twat.

You both seem to be implying that he deliberately smashed his car up to get YouTube hits.I think you should stick to commenting on YouTube.That's more your milieu.

I am suggesting that people who repeatedly post videos pointing out other people's shit driving are generally not the best drivers themselves. I don't think he deliberately escalated the accident, he probably thinks he didn't do anything wrong. 

I am not disputing that there was bad driving on the woman's part, just pointing out that there was bad driving from the BMW driver too. For the benefit of the capital letters wanker up there that's what discussion is.

parking at work came to a new level when I blocked in some cars with the mini bus .... 

and one of the cars was on the pavement ..........so we took pictures , and they complained about US the next day  !!

  so the head saw his arse and now ...

all cars are banned from parking in that area  , and yellow lines are being installed along with some signs ..

now that picture of the offending car .... should I post it ?

the ped on the left puts his phone away just as the car goes past him ? , did not even look round

then "it" walks right past the crash site without looking .....  come on even the woman in the brown coat has walked back to see what happened

and the woobly woman has a mobile in her hand as she is screaming her tits off  !

And we're all telling that is wrong. I don't understand why you're so keen to defend the women when the fault is so utterly and very obviously hers. Was that your wife driving or something?

Parking at my work is absolutely unbelievable - it’s a bit short on spaces for the number of people they’ve crammed in, granted, but the amount of times I see people abandon their car on verges / hatched markings / pavements / etc etc early in the morning when there are plenty of spaces just feet away beggars belief.

Why are some people’s priorities all to cock? Given we are in the midst of Storm whatever it’s called the roof panels on the porch are lifting, they want some roofing screws putting in, or in all likelihood they’ll blow off (no I didn’t fit them, the guy who lived here before...). The wife has absolutely no interest in the actual building being kept in a half decent state, time doing that is a waste of time apparently. The inside of the house, yes that’s kept good but so long as it looks ok it could be falling to bits underneath the veneer. The chimney needs repointing, I’m half the mind to leave it until it falls through the ceiling.

I left Tescos in November after 16 years of employment. I got to thinking about the retirement pension I had which is run by Legal & General. I'm not paying into it any more, and neither is Tesco, so it's just dead really.

My idea is to draw the lot out and put it into an account where Mrs Tet has access to it, should anything happen to me. So, with that in mind I phoned L&G. Sure, no problem, we'll send you the appropriate form out. This was on the 31st Feb. Still no form. Phoned them. Yes, they are sending the form out out. Still no form, apparently it takes TEN working days to get this form out. If it doesn't arrive Monday, then another phone call will be outgoing, maybe not quite so polite this time though. Sodding ridiculous. TEN days to get a piece of paper in the post.

Ten working days = 2 weeks, so 14 calendar days.
