Complete fucktards who park on the opposite side of the road facing you and leave their headlamps on - FFS even the highway code has more sense than these idiots...............and why do they have the nerve to get pissed off when I hit my main beam. Years ago it was common sense.
Those are my principles...if you don't like them I have others.

Or hazard lights, so it looks like they're about to pull out on you as you approach them. There's a nursery on my way to work and the parents have obviously been ill advised to leave their hazards on when dropping their kids off so you get a whole load of them with indicators flashing but all parked on the wrong side of the road.

Mud.

Why is it that you can stomp around all day on the pavement and it doesn't shift off you're boots, but the minute you walk indoors it's dropping off foccin everywhere!

Grr! Tell me about it.

Usually what it means is that "I can't be bothered to parallel park properly, so I'm going to be a complete cock and leave the car stuck half-way out into the road and put my hazard flashers on, so it looks like I'm trying to pull out, but actually I'm just a lazy cnut!"

Booking fees. Just another rip off, booked 4 tickets to see Peter Kay and had to pay a booking fee of £4.50 per ticket, thats £18 for foc all. You cannot go to a booking office and buy them so you have a choice, pay up or no ticket.
I booked the tickets through the First Direct Arena website which takes you to Eventim UK to book and pay, and when the comfirmation email came through the location of Eventim UK is apparently Amsterdam NL, so a Dutch company not a UK company as implied in the booking site name, a nice little tax avoidance scheme maybe?

Just got renewal quote for 2 vehicles for £217 from RAC.
Same difference with AA was £139.


Let’s face it, if you break down you just want your vehicle sorted out at roadside, or taken home with it.
I’m not interested in all the other bollox they’re offering.

I just read right through this post from it conception. What a miserarable, whinging lot of foccers there are on this forum. It seems foc al is right for you, FFS cheer up and try and see the positive in some things it's not all doom and gloom. Should start a post called 'What makes me smile' the people of Zimbabwe are smiling now foccing great big smiles, I really wish Africa well, the people there for the best part (not all I know) are generous and kind people. My Daughter worked in South Africa for 6 months working with aids victims, and I use the word victims with full understanding of what a victim is. It is a person through no fault of their own find them self in an untenable position or situation. The full total of the aids baby's are innocent of any wrong doing, the majority of the woman are infected because of their husbands sewing wild oats while working away from home and infecting their wife on return.
Oh! hang on tommyardin is going off on one AGAIN.


What makes me smile: Laying the Fazer over in the twisties, looking at the Fazer after it has been cleaned and polished, wakeing the Fazer up after 5 months of hibernation. Receiving a letter telling me my £200 heating allowance has been deposited into my bank. My mechanic telling me the car or bike has gone through the MOT with no advisories. When the Mrs says Oh! All right if you must  :rolleyes :eek  to name but a few.

Completely irrelevant post Tommy, read the title, this is exactly the place for people to harmlessly mention their daily gripes in life, which most people are all too familiar with.

So because there's much worse going on in the world, which there's always going to be and which I'm sure most people would acknowledge, everyone here should be disqualified from ever having a gripe about anything in their lives, even if it's in the generally light hearted manner I think was intended by this thread?.

By a similar token there would be little, if any, domestic news in the papers or on the telly if it was ranked purely by global seriousness.

FFS cheer up and try and see the positive in some things it's not all doom and gloom. Should start a post called 'What makes me smile'



The bait was cast.... now the wait in eager anticipation.


The rest of the post i feel is accurate, yes, off topic as someone commented, but nevertheless a necessary rant. its called padding out.


Have a great day. :finger

Seriously.
What get my goat is why Samsung built the Galaxy 6 Edge in a such away that you cannot remove or replace the battery.
Mine is 14 months old and the battery only holds its charge for about 8 hours, it seems every time I go to make a foccing call there is 3% left and it immediately shuts down.
Nearly £600 for 14 months use, £42+ a month without call costs or data.  :thumbdown

So i just phoned the RAC to cancel my Direct Debit, and they then offered me not 12, but 15 months of the same cover for £163  :look


Would’ve been so much easier if they just offered me that in the first place.
When broken down (no pun intended) it even works out cheaper than the AA quote!


Worth knowing if you’re not too impressed with your own renewal price.
