I find it beyond cunty that these tossers are stood there filming rather than warning folk how deep it is.  Granted the entry speed on a lot of them does them no favours, but it's no excuse.

The two cunts with the Land Rovers sitting there are raking it in towing them out, they'd probably chase anyone daring to rob them of their loot. Surprised that Aldi Q-whatever died, I'd have expected better from a posh SUV. Must have its snout at ground level.

Many years ago I had a diseasel Citroen CX. Old school tractor motor, no turbo, no electronics and the wonderful Citroen suspension that enabled me to let the old girl lift up her skirts and wade through a flood that had a Ford Fiesta stranded in it with water up the tops of its wheelarches. Compare that to a couple of weeks ago when I had squeaky bum time in my Saab which has its air intake down in the front wing as the water got to about 9-10 inches.

I understand that, but actions like that are part of being involved with driving, which is seriously, and sadly, on the decrease. E.G. sitting in queues for lights or rail crossings with wipers going continuously. Also see auto lights blinding me before waking up that I'm approaching. How hard is it to flick a switch?

I don't really get this. It is just nicer than repeatedly flicking a switch. It doesn't cause any inconvenience that I can see or contribute to poor driving standards

I disagree I'm afraid. My commute to work is all twist country lanes. The amount of times I have been blinded by cars not dipping until they are head one is considerable. Now I agree that some people are c*NTS and don't dip as consideration, but a vast majority of these cars are with LED headlights so I would say most will have auto dip.

In my experience, the majority of cars still don't have it, whether they have LED lights or not

Ever wish your lottery numbers would come up, so you could tell everyone to fuck off and go and live in a little house in the middle of a big plot of land? I do.

I think those are all selling at a premium, preferred by great train robbers and nowadays cannabis farmers.

I'm an introvert. Constantly being talked at drains my batteries. So naturally the Mrs. is doing my head in, and I just want leaving the hell alone in QUIET!

I put her video door bell up Saturday. She spent all Saturday night & Sunday morning chuntering about what she's going to say if crazy old bat next door manages to get the council to come and look at it. Council man will say this, and I'll say that chunter chunter chunter.

Took her out to the countryside for walkies, and hopefully respite. Wrong. Man goes by on push bike and rings bell. Well why should she move? Chunter about cyclists for an hour. (This is after Eddie got knocked down on Friday crossing the road 'cos he has right of way and doesn't have to look. Blammo, hit by an E scooter. No good being in the right and injured).
Took her for an ice cream, and the fucking bastards gave her a PLASTIC spoon. Chunter, banned, chunter. Then some random person said "Jesus Christ", so a good long chunter about that too. Lovely hours drive back constantly going on about spoon, Jesus, cyclists, door bell on a constant loop.

I'm about to dump and run, when she decides she's scared and can I stay another night? FFS. She asks Alexa to play "dollar", and then every song asks "Alexa, who sings this?" After about 7 goes of Alexa saying "this is dollar", I snap and say it's dollar. It's always going to be dollar, that's what you asked for. We go to bed after another round of council man will say this, and I'll say...., for her then to accuse me of being nasty to her all night.

Never have I felt so glad to escape this morning. Turned the radio off, just listened to the engine, peace....

Yes I know I could probably click unsubscribe or summat but I likes to moan.

If you try and go through the supposedly 'automated' process to delete your account it fails straight away, and frankly my life is too short to contact their support team to get it dealt with.

Twats. I've clicked unsubscribe on the email so hopefully my shit old 2010s photos will keep costing them in storage without ever earning anything and I won't get bothered about it.

Couple of members of the "Travelling community" came down my tiny close yesterday and it's got me rather nervous. They started with the old we'll do your driveway chat (very keen to get on the property to give a quote, they've switched to offering resin, how modern) "Is your Mummy or Daddy in? I want to speak to the organ grinder not the monkey" I presume trying to size me up a bit since I'm clearly in my mid-30s. "Quiet round here isn't it? How long have you lived here?" "Is your neighbour in? Before pounding on their door to ask if they want their back yard clearing and finally "Do you want to sell the van for cash?" I was blunt, but civil, since they know where I live, but perhaps I should've told them where to stick it. Now I'm going to have to keep the van blocked in order to sleep. Brilliant.

I had them at mine on Sunday too. Wanting to buy the "starter engine" off my volvo. Telling me I'll get fuck all for the car because "Scrap's at £22 a ton".

His response to me calling him a chancer was to threaten to punch me in the face (which seems kind of pointless to me, if you're going to punch someone just do it!) then shout to the two in the van "He's a pedo! He just touched my bum!" which is funny because he was at least 15 years older than me, though he did appear to have the intellect of a 9 year old.

Think you’re doing the average 9 year old a disservice….

I'm starting to appreciate the benefits of going to an actual shop and buying stuff rather than relying on the bullshitters who work for Evri. Apparently they've successfully delivered my order which is in my garage. Only problem is I don't have a garage, and the photo is of someone else's garage, presumably in an unspecified property in the locality.

Plenty of stupid drivers about.

 

That would be made even better if the cameraman made the drivers do a piece to camera, introducing themselves and making them admit how bloody stupid they are.

And the footage of the tractor busting through the closure barriers further up the page is quite scary - if that trailer had fallen over, fuck knows how they'd have recovered it all!

It would have served the idiot behind the wheel absolutely right if it had gone over.  Given the location, very unlikely anyone else would have been hurt, and he'd be very unlikely to be able to clear it up before the police arrived...

We got this new apprentice at work and he keeps doing this weird grin like he knows something you don’t and in reality he probably knows fuck all that’s really important or worth knowing 

I work in schools occasionally and 15 year olds do it all the time, but you expect it.

However one of my brother in laws does it too and he’s 53! Just want to punch him.
