We looking at your flared nuts? Or dodgy package?

An empty package. It was already opened - cheeky barsteward just put an empty envelope through the door.

Bloody sickened, my desk faces out to Newsham Park and it's nice lake, I saw a bit of activity earlier and turns out it was the RSPB trying to rescue a Coot that had a small crossbow bolt through it's neck, Fire Brigade also attended but couldn't catch the little bugger. RSPB are coming back with reinforcements to get it. It seemed active enough so I assume the bolt has missed any vital bits but Jesus wept what cunt would do something like that   

An update, the little fucker of a Coot was caught and has been taken to the Vet's , took hours to catch and allegedly it had to be given mouth to beak resus as it had tried to hide underwater for too long, possibly some artistic licence from the park volunteer group but glad it's been helped

I regularly struggle with wanting to save cars and the current one is this.Galleribilde

It does not get better that this is a diesel something I like a lot and that they are almost extinct here. It is also cheap and is 30 years old next year so will be cheap to own. Can we possibly create a support group here? Because I need help.

We have a holiday let which we rent out via Airbnb. Nice cottage, with plenty of space around it for dogs to exercise. Got there for a changeover, to find 4 (very obvious) piles of dog shit they haven't bothered to clean up. Plus the bathroom bin was full of used sanitary towels (no bag), which blew all over the garden while I was taking them to the main bin. Worse still, they've already booked for a repeat week!

Then to compound things, the couple who were arriving later that afternoon sent us a message at 10:30. Bearing in mind we clearly state a 4pm check-in time, the message stated that they were setting off now, and so expected to be there earlier, around 2-3pm. And they'd tested positive for Covid 2 days ago; were there any special precautions we'd like them to take?

Yes, how about staying away!

Walking through the park to my son's to collect my car.

The amount of rubbish and dogshit is appalling.

Worse were these buggers allowing their dogs into a children's playground with 'No Dogs Allowed' signs all the way round.  Woman letting her dog shit there too.

There are acres and acres of fields for the dogs and they let them crap in a playground.

A bit hard to see, they are lurking near the trees at the back.

You don't understand that applies to everyone else.

Took my eldest to college today. Saw two cars fall victim to the heat. A lot of poorly maintained cars will give up today.

Three blocking a lane on the A38 North of Brum, in 4 miles.

Yes, stay at home. How hard is that?

I regret to inform you this is the support group.

Now, when are you doing a collection thread?

Knew that asking for help not to buy more cars here is like asking a drug dealer how to stop using drugs.

And do not know there are problems as always, the biggest is that it has not been on the road in 4-5 years and that it is 4 hours drive away. And the timing belt makes me not want to drive it home. I also do not have a drivers license to tow a large trailer either and a-frame towing is not legal here which is a shame as  a-framing a Renault 19 home with a Hyundai i10 over Norwegian mountains for 4 hours would be interesting.

We would support you, except that sounds like the perfect collection thread. Go for it.

Can noisy inconsiderate neighbours just fuck off to the nearest desert island :(

Nobody wants to hear your non stop gangsta music, with TikTok music thrown in, at MAXIMUM volume

I get that it's a reasonable time to enjoy your music, but is there really a need to blast it out? 

They're two fucking adults with three children under the age of 5. And they're behaving like feral teenagers. Couple that with the constant shouting and smoking of various substances outside other people's windows it's really beginning to get irritating.

The worst thing about it is that 50% of flats in the building have people who do night shifts, so quietly enjoying your music is not much to ask for. No need to blast it out

Neighbor opposite (not even in the same building) sent me a text asking what all the noise was about! It's that bad

Its really annoyed me as I deliberately didn't put the washing machine on at 11:30pm last night so as not to disturb them, and they've gone and done this without any consideration. 

Why do people have to be such cunts? 

Another flat has a teenager who blares out music sometimes, whilst annoying, to be fair I can forgive them slightly as that's the teenage way. But we're talking about grown adults here :(

There are reviews of guest for that website. leave them a truthful negative one. Do not the website say anything about Virus protocols theses days? They were full of it earlier. I understand that the website does not like the owner making cancellations. Is that correct?

I hate that website so much I cannot even write it's name.

Their policy is that guests shouldn't travel if testing positive, but nowhere did it state where we stood if we cancelled the booking. Potentially we'd be fined, unable to have anyone else in for those dates, and lose the Superhost status. Phoned them up and was told that they can have a refund if they supply proof of the positive test, which is not what I wanted to hear! I asked if we would be penalised and they said they needed to escalate the query.

6 hours later, and half an hour before they were due to arrive, Airbnb messaged to say that if we got in touch with our local health department, they would be able to advise, or we could host them at our own risk. Decided on the latter, worried about being penalised. So now we're having to have a mammoth cleaning session when they leave, otherwise it's hardly fair on the next guests. There's disinfectant 'bombs' which can do a whole room, so have ordered a pack of those.

Get an ozone generator, kills bacteria and viruses. Portable ones not expensive but don’t expose yourself to it. Ozone reverts to oxygen after two or three hours. 
We use them for this purpose and also for deodorising smoke damage. Good for all sorts of odour and bacterial problems but must be used with caution as will cause respiratory problems if used incorrectly.

So, I finally owned up to buying the 100 today (yes, it’s been sat on the drive for a few days now).

As I wasn’t planning on bringing it home, I told my mrs ‘I have a car to move’ when I went to collect it. Then due to Murphy’s law I’ve ended up bringing it home and leaving it on the trailer (if it doesn’t touch the ground, I don’t have to own up to owning it, right?). Obviously, I have been doing everything asked of me by my partner whilst it is out there in order to keep things sweet and avoid questions until I can shift it 😅 

Today I wanted to play cars, but she fancied a trip to the beach. No bother, whilst I don’t like the beach it’s only down the road, and I can take beers to pass the time. Keeping her happy is the name of the game until I think of a way to own up to my bad decisions.

I’m an idiot and I often forget to use sun lotion. Last weekend I got burnt like a bastard on my shoulders and I’ve been uncomfortable all week. Before we left I asked if she had packed the sun lotion. ‘Yes, it’s in the bag’. We go to the beach. First call of action for me, sun lotion as I don’t want to get burnt again… yeah, the sun lotion isn’t in the bag. My dearly beloved forgot to pack it (‘yes, it’s in the bag!). I’m not happy but I don’t complain. A little while later, I’m asked out of the blue ‘when are you going to own up to owning that Audi?’ 😳 oh dear. I fessed up, told the story of the ancient advert etc., she wasn’t angry (we have enough cars that it’s obvious I had a problem already) but she did chirpily mention that we’d now be staying at the beach as long as she liked.

Now, I’m definite that she didn’t deliberately leave the sun lotion at home, it was an honest mistake. However, karma is a bitch, because I’m burnt to fuck and she’s absolutely fine!

here’s to another week of discomfort then…

That makes my run in with the website (as a guest) as very trivial. They are seriously messed up.

These disinfectant bombs can be harmful to your health too. I hope you have enough time  between these leaving and the next ones....Good luck
