Title: Today's "What Gets My Goat" - NO POLITICS!
Post by: Hedgetrimmer on 04 July 2015, 07:46:42 PM
No, not a thread especially for midden  :lol

Stolen the idea from another forum, as it can get quite funny, and also, lots of whingeing old bastards on here who like a good gripe (not me, I'm not old - just stuck in my ways...apparently  :rolleyes ).

So I'll kick off with my latest one, verbatim from the other site:

When you discover a product at the supermarket that you really like and they stop stocking it. Or, they reduce the serving and bump up the price. In fact, one seems to precede the other, so that's probably what will happen to the particular thing I have in mind this time.

 They're feckin rationing me! My meals are getting smaller and smaller, cos damned if I'll pay for two now they've shrunk the original. Bastards.

"New recipe!" less of the more expensive ingredients. "Same price!" for a smaller portion.

You have started something now :)

For me it is so called reality programs on tv, they are so far removed from actual reality the producers should be prosecuted under the trades description act.

Me actually being a grumpy old foccer means my post count is going to rocket, the list of things that get my goat is endless :)

From today's ride...


The modern propensity to not bother using indicators, mostly Audi drivers but not limited just to them


And


People driving in country lanes who cut the corners forcing me into the hedge, follow the contours of the road tossers and stop refusing to drive close to the hedge in case of the odd scratch!


And that's just today's griping..

Slow witted retards who approach roundabouts and don't indicate they are turning left at the first exit. You slow down for them and stop, they turn left meaning everyone has now stopped for no reason than this moronic tw#t can't be arsed to drive consideratly. Next time you're in a traffic jam chances are some knob like this started it.
Tossers who take 3 or more seconds to set off when the lights turn green, at best three get through leaving everyone else seething at their incompetence.
Shop assistants who tell you there is no demand for the item you've just requested, really, what am I then? A feckin' apparition, didn't I just ask for it?
Numb nuts who refuel their cars parked three feet away from the pump. You've filled yours and are ready to leave but can't because the normal seven foot channel to drive through is now only four feet wide.
I'm a grumpy old bastard but only because I've no time for arseholes.

Or, they reduce the serving and bump up the price.

Tell me about it!

For instance Mars Bars have shrunk in size because of this new "treatwise" idea (that if you make chocolate bars smaller, people won't be such fat bastards), yet they still cost the same.

Meanwhile Asda's Toad in the Hole has gone from the original size with 8 sausages in it to the original size with only 6 sausages and now it's about 2/3rds the size and only has *four* sausages in it! Once again, of course, the price hasn't changed...

This seriously doesn't work with me... instead of having one reduced portion, I'll end up having 2 portions which were more than the original portion to start with... this could explain why I am a fat bastard though...

Getting excited because after two months of physio your knee finally bends enough to reach the gear lever, only to find the ligaments in your foot have shrunk too much to twist round and actually touch the fucking thing.

at least they were on the road.    riding out toward the middle around country lanes is sensible makes you more visible. I tend to do it on either bicycle  or the fazer.  Unlike the probable tard I keep ears and eyes open and move toward the side to allow vehicles to pass when safe. Beats cars racing passed so close they want to force you in the hedges  :)

So he was charged *two years* ago and only now has he been convicted.

Ok, the fine and, more importantly, the five points are good, but probably by now most drivers will have forgotten all about this law (especially given the number of Middle-Lane Larrys I've seen out there), so it's hardly going to be much of a deterrent :(

yeah supermarkets are open 24/7 but when I work away from home only time I get to do a food shop for the family is at a weekend. even on a Friday evening I'll go at 8-830 after I've spent time with my boys at rugby training and yes they are in Asda trying to decide which aisle to clog up and then they bump into Eric from across the road & have a natter in the narrowest part of the shop... they got cafe's for nattering in!!
 :lol
So all us old folk should stay in so you can go shopping disrespectful I know but feck off :lol


Apparently a lottery win, or ordering online can sort these issues out.
Replacing a loaf of bread with a loofah, 'cos it was close in the alphabet, can cause the odd argument but hey,nobody's perfect.  :lol

Some cnut walking around London with an IS flag draped over his shoulder and a kid sat on his shoulders waving a small IS flag just over a week after 30 British people were murdered on a beach in Tunisia by IS. The police said they can't do anything about it because he hasn't done wrong FFS.

And why the kid on his shoulders - so us decent people won't smack the shit out of him for doing it 'cos he has a kid with him. The spineless, wank stain, piss taking tw@  :grumble . On his own he'd be dog food.

Surface Dressing - I am surprised, somewhat that this is the first "whinge" about Surface dressing.
It is the season and it strikes - randomly - and according to the signs can take a whole week to do 500yds!

And for those "lucky" enough - try following the "Convoy Vehicle" through on a freshly laid section. They go at less than the DVLA request of new riders doing their tests! On a moving surface.
There is generally little warning.............
And getting the tar spots off - don't get me started.....
And I agree - keep old people out of supermarkets - I mean why are they queuing at Morrisons in Cheltenham, to get in at 7AM?  :rollin :rollin :rollin

I was spitting feathers yesterday evening.


Riding home on the M20 I overtake a woman, she's in the inside lane doing her makeup at 60 MPH.  Bottle of foundation in one hand, applying it with a sponge in the other, squinting up at the rear view mirror to make sure she applied it right.  :eek


Couldn't believe what I was seeing, stayed alongside her for a bit and sounded my horn, eventually she looked over, I pointed and shock my head in the hope she might realise what she was doing was so so stupid but no, I got the finger and told to fuck off (at least that's what I lip read).


I rode alongside her for a bit longer hoping she might stop knowing I was there but no!  In the end I didn't fancy being on the end of her inevitable accident and rode off.


Wish I had a camera for moments like this I would love to send that sort of evidence to the police.


I tried to remember her number in my head to report her (bit of a waste of time because the police only do anything if they have two witnesses to the crime) but by the time I'd concentrated on changing lanes to pull onto the A249 I had forgotten it!  DOH!


Do you know what made it worse, no amount of focing makeup was gonna make her look pretty......  :lol

I am sick of it every year having to spend time doing the rounds to find cheaper and then ring my current insurer to tell them for them to say "OH er ok MR Fazersharp lets have a look for you, hold the line I will just speak to my manager------- yes we can match that for you"

Having towed a caravan in rush hour myself I can sort of sympathise. If you tow properly you don't hold traffic up at all (except you can only do 50mph on a 60mph single carriage way road) but you do tend to want to keep rolling and as such don't want brake suddenly which some muppets (indicating or not) make you do when they think there is a gap big enough for their car to fit into in front of yours. What they don't think about is the fact that the car they are cutting in front of was using that space to stop in already so by you pulling out into the gap has caused me to brake suddenly.

I dont like towing the caravan and I try not to tow it in rush hour traffic. To help me avoid doing it, I don't even keep it in this country anymore.

Thats pathetic! One of our 300 series LWB diesel Sprinter vans ran to 500000 miles before giving up the ghost. It was the "full power" version 5 speed box and the only trouble I ever had was a split turbo hose temporarily repaired with yards of gaffer tape. it spent most of its life in the "fast lane" in the region of the National SpeedLimit(officially anyway!) :lol [size=78%] The accountants at MB advised the company to cut costs about 17 years ago which led to  a spate of reliability/warranty issues in the early noughties.[/size]

Career benefit scroungers


People who fall for the "Scrounger"/ "Illegal Immigrants"/ "Parasites" narrative that our Government and their tame media keep pushing out.

Did you know that, for instance, the owners of the Daily Mail, that paper that claims to be on the side of the "Hard Working Tax Payers" are registered abroad to avoid tax?

See this list (http://www.theguardian.com/business/2014/jul/10/whos-who-britain-legal-offshore-tax-avoidance-james-dyson) for many more famous names that do the same.

But no, let's keep kicking the poorest in society and blame them for being poor and force them to work in conditions of near slavery, whilst the rich bastards have expensive lawyers and financial advisers and do tidy deal with HMRC and their mates in power to allow them to hoard lots of money and screw everyone else because "I'm alright, Jack"!

mate knows a cop who works fraud/tax cheating
along with HMRC they've just busted a large well known Co. who have evaded £22M in tax

evaded = deliberately dodging their tax in this case and they're on their way to court now.......probably strike a deal to pay back a few mil  :evil

Got one of those who works in the next road from me, he also has different colour reflective squares on his panniers, 2 tiny red lights above the tail end each side of the rear camera, a camera on his shoulder and a white lid with black and white cheque banding on it.
The giveaway is the yellow hi vis jacket he wears is just the same as builders use.  :lol
In fairness people do tend to get out of his way though, even if it is a bit of a strange mentality, and I must confess I even moved out of his way once to let him pass, then felt a bit duped when I saw who it was.  :bobby

Sorry my nephew is a consultant him and his wife all they have been doing is fucking moaning about Jeremy Cunt.
I caused a family rift when I mentioned all I ever see them do on facebook is post photos of being on holidays at least 4 or 5 a year.
I did suggest that they take a pay cut and donate some to the under paid paramedics , nurses etc! fell on deaf hears that did.
My brother does their tax returns last year including private work £587,000.
They moan because they have to be on call 1 weekend in 5.

While we are on the subject of horses, why do these horsey people insist on taking a half a tonne of skittish, mental, easily scared metal footed animal on the public road when they know that at the first sight of a car, bike or carrier bag in a hedge, it will become totally uncontrollable endangering itself, the rider and other members of the public? We were out for a ride the other week riding at 30mph (barely believable I know but true) over the brow of a hill to find a horse and rider coming up the hill in the opposite direction, I whipped the clutch in and hit the kill switch and sowed down to about walking pace rolling down the road, as did everyone else, when I drifted slowly past I could see the young girl was having trouble controlling it, by the time two more had rolled slowly past it was sideways in the road and rearing up. The remaining guys stopped completely and waited until she got the animal under control, which she didn't. The lads told me that eventually the horse slid, kicked and reared its way up the hill past them totally out of control.
Apart from the usual "we belong on roads these days and horses don't" argument, I think the main point here is, why would you consider taking a large animal on the road when you know that ANY vehicle will spook it to such an extent that it will become uncontrollable and possibly cause damage to itself or other people/property? The other point is, why do they always shit on the racing line round bends?

Lets say you went for a hair cut and you say its a bit nippy today and they say "oh yes i had to put an extra blanket on my horse"  errrrrhhh !

And another thing when im shopping in sainsburys (cause im posh) there will always be -- and its always girls --- what is it with girls and horses, there will  be someone in their jodhpers and riding boots with shit on them while im buying FOOD, its not even like they have parked their horse outside -- get fecking changed before you go food shopping, its just another "look at me I have got a horse"

people forget the unions were started to protect and give the workers better conditions, unfortunately when one strikes it has an impact on others but that seems forgotten in this day and age where everyone are only concerned about themselves and foc anyone who dares to interrupt their daily lives

Do they think they will get support from the general public?   balls no.

I was working at a house the other day and the owner and his wife had the wifes parents come to this country for a week,,they had booked into a hotel in Heathrow and were due to hop on the tube into London,,,their first time as well as their guests,, it was the tube strike clash,,,they tried to cancel the holiday,,no good,,when they went it was a nightmare,,waited for two hours to get a bus into the city,,packed to the hilt,,even worse trying to get back,,they never even tried the second day,,,

So why do the unions do this to us,other folks,,,fuck our lives up,,,no support from a lot of fellow people.

I think your missing the point here slimwilly. Strike is always the last option. I've been a Shop Steward for 36 years and been on strike once. That was to get the company I work for to honour an agreement they'd consistently welched on for over five years. As for no one supporting strikers, that's exactly what the torys want as they are currently engaged in moves to seriously curtail unions powers, no just on striking but also on representation and safety issues. Any public body will have virtually no chance of withdrawing their labour.  Cue nurses paid even less with no redress, mass exodus of nurses, the end of the NHS. Just what the tories want. Unity is the only way forward, with it comes occasional distress and discomfort but without it the plight of the underpaid, zero hours contract workers and similar will get worse. I gave financial support at the last fireman's strike which wasn't about money but pensions. Few people condemn the firemen for striking because it's a dangerous and necessary service.  Why condemn others for defending their rights with a last ditch effort against their employers. People only see the media's side. Banks are making staff redundant whilst the clown Osborne sells off bank shares to his mates in the city at well below the going rate costing the tax payer millions. How many public sector workers could have had their first decent pay rise in four years with that money?

Its got nothing to do with the Tories,,the trade unions fucked the Labour governments over and over too..

You union people have your unions,,you are welcome to them,,pay them well, they will advise you correctly I am sure,,, but get the fuck out of other peoples lives,,,,why fuck every one elses life up.?

Its blackmail,,,trying to MAKE an employer give greedy workers what the unions say they need,,,and sometimes deserve..

It gets my goat when strikes mess everyone up.

We have just had a ballot where I work for industrial action as the multinational that employs us has decided that we we will get a 0% ( !!! )pay rise this year despite making more profit last year than ever before and our order books are that full we are taking on contractors and sub contracting work to other companies.
It has taken us 4 months to get this far, 86% of the workforce have voted for industrial action in the ballot and now a postal ballot has to be arranged to keep it all legal and above board, strikes are not something that can be done at the drop of a hat anymore, too many employers know this and use it to their advantage, they refuse to negotiate at all and then blame the workers when they use their last resort which is strike action.

Fucking tenants , I still own a property in the UK (bolt hole). He has been living in the property for just over 3 years now. The property is a two bedroom two bath flat modern built in 2000. It is on the beach front in Hoylake, Wirral , 5 minutes from last years Open Golf championship venue. So shall we say it is in a nice desirable area.
He contacted me last week asking for a rent reduction as the Central heating boiler is now 10 years old and (1) is not energy efficient and (2) the energy rating on the white goods are also not as as energy efficient  as modern appliances( I pointed out that when he signed his tenancy agreement I had gifted him the goods). He is requesting I fit a new boiler, replace the 4 year old washing machine and the 6 year old fridge freezer
He has not had a rent review in the whole time he has lived there. I was content with the, reasoning better a steady income and a reliable tenant so do not get greedy.


I pointed out that Landlord insurance has increased by 17% this year, building maintainence cost(management fees)by 4%.
His reply , not my problem!!! I phoned him this morning and asked if he was having financial problems regarding paying his rent( he has never missed his rent)
I could hear someone in the background goading him on!! Obviously I asked him was someone there. Yes turns out he has a new lady in his life!!!!!!!
Just doing some research on investment/ valuation on two bed two bath properties within a 2 mile radius of Hoylake. Yer maun is fucked, I am entitled to put up his rent by 6%, do not need to replace the boiler unless advised by the service engineer on the annual gas&electricity safety report.
Gets better had a valuation on the property (£275,000) so just informed my tenant I am giving him 6 months notice to vacate the property as I intend to return to the UK in January, health reasons (my arse)
Next village down  from Hoylake for that kind of money I can buy to rent 3 two bed flats returning me 120% more in rent than I am getting now. I am not a greedy person  but fucking tenants!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thought that you as the landlord only need give 2 months notice.
Funny how he was happy and content - was paying low rent then along comes this woman gives him grief and then gives you grief.
This grief you are getting now will not end with new white goods and a boiler it will be on going about every little thing you are best shot of them.

Well slimwilly, I'm a misguided fool, about what? And how the hell has it got nothing to do with the unions. The unions are a collective.
Basically what you are telling me is that anyone employed in any capacity that may affect you has no right to strike. That means that nurses, fireman, train drivers and the like will have to suffer financial hardship and deteriorating conditions just so they don't inconvenience you.
I agree that the unions in the 70's had far to much power and behaved irresponsibly. However I don't want to return to tugging my forelock and being totally subservient to the employer like it was before the Trade Union movement began.
You should lighten up a bit, we all have to suffer but A days train strike isn't the end of the world.

Personalised no plates......there are some really nice/good ones but the majority I see now are "the leftovers/dregs" that owners illegally space letters/numbers in some ludicrously pathetic attempt to give themselves some "status" or highlight their ethnicity( eg near me I8(S?) LAM) :eek
I can see the point of putting a cheap Northern Irish plate on to avoid the 6 monthly age-related nonsense-but I suppose it keeps some people employed?
When they introduced the new system in Sept 2001 (51) they also brought in a standard font. In my understanding all these jiggled around plates should be MOT failures as it could be argued that this is an attempt to confuse the scanning cameras.
Its all ego isnt it & it backfires because most sane people think "What a Tosser!"

Cars with those stupid HID bulbs so bright white light its like daylight.
The other night I was traveling in my car down a country lane I did not know with lots of humps and hollows and bends- I get this git in a merc behind me right up my arse with lights so bight they were casting a black shadow of my car in front of me and everything else each side of this shadow was bright white it was like driving into a hole, I had to slow right down to 20 mph which made him get even closer which made it get even worse which ment I had to go even slower, there wasnt even a good spot for me to let him pass.

Had that tonight, bastard white van man creeping forward so half his van was sticking out so I shook my head at him as approached him and went past so he didn't pull out.


He then flew past me and further down the road he indicated left whilst in the right lane then cut right across me and both lanes and turned left into the next road. :eek


After a good blast of the air horn he shot off again and at the end of the road he put his right indicator on.......and turned left.  :rolleyes

Whats worse is that the lorry has moved back in but everyone has moved now and they are damn well staying there.

Here here Stewie. I don't normally go in for an undertake but like you if there is an empty lane between us I will sometimes do it. Many is the time I have gone from inside lane to third lane and back to inside lane to pass a middle lane hog who still doesn't get the message. I've always been impressed on French motorways how quickly they get back to the inside lane, don't know if it's a law that gets enforced over there.

They still shouldn't be sitting there with the hazards on, not even if God told them to do it, as you say, if one does pull out, you don't know if they're signaling or not. And I'm guessing they're all sitting on the zig zags too :rolleyes

1/2 a mile well what an inconvinence. French have it down to a tee. Indicator on right up your arse  pass and then pull over until the next overtake is required. On A roads worst drivers in Europe, Toll/Motorways excellent.

Gets my goat people driving along in cars and keep braking yet the car isnt slowing down, coming up to a junction or lights on the flat the brake lights will be on for 40 meters and yet no sign of the car slowing even though its only doing 10mph anyway, and then they do stop at the lights and you could get another car in between them and the line

On the same subject - those who panic when bules come from behind. Its a wide enough road for them to pull to the side and yet they swerve and almost mount the pavement over kerb scattering pedestrians.

What got my goat tonight was the following:


1) sitting in the cage at a roundabout trying to get out of Canterbury tonight.  Traffic very slow.  Im in left hand lane to go straight on.  CAr coming round on inside lane, indicating right, my spider sense tells me he's going straight on, but I decide to pull out, as I would be entitled to given his road positioning and indication, he's gloing about 10 mph so happy we can both stop.  And YEP, I was right, he was going straight on, still indicating right as he crosses lanes to go straight on, he then sits on his horn pissed off at me for "pulling out in front of him"!  TWAT!  It's times like that I want to stop the car and very calmly explain that indicating right on the inside lane means he's going round and not pulling off and actually he was in the wrong, not me.  Not worth it though.


2) driving through Faversham on the A2 bloke behind me talking on his phone and smoking a fag!  Great multitasking skills I suppose, driving, smoking and using a phone  :\ [size=78%], [/size][/size]but what a twat!!![size=78%]

Those traffic light sensor strips in the road that detect when you go over them. Only thing is sometimes me and my bike dont seem heavy enough to set them off and I end up sitting there watching the sequence go over and over each time bypassing me, until a car comes behind me and instantly gets me a green light.

I have taken to going very slow and diagonally over them to get my full weight on them, I have even reversed back over and bounced up and down to get a light change

They work by induction, a bit like a metal detector. I've had the same problem with ones in combined bus and cycle lanes because there just isn't sufficient metal on a bicycle to trigger them all the time. If that happens, I'll stop and if the lights cycle more than once without mine changing I'll treat it as a Stop sign and proceed with caution.

Here's a bit about them, although I don't guarantee its techniques will definitely work! http://www.wikihow.com/Trigger-Green-Traffic-Lights (http://www.wikihow.com/Trigger-Green-Traffic-Lights)

Designed for standard bars though?

Sure thundercat clutch stock and switch gear may be slightly different, but it would be millimeters out not an inch
But if the barends are longer, won't they take up the difference? Meaning that your grips are over most of the bars and some of the barends?
I had an email from another seller on ebay stating that the tube length of the bars he has for sale without bar ends is 260mm, the set I have are 240. Yes they would fit but they will still be loose at the end. I don't know if you've ever had a handlebar grip come off mid corner, if you have I don't need to remind you how bloody scary it was.

I don't have them in front of me and you showed two separate pictures, so I was surmising, rather than actually knowing there was a difference.

Nope, never had that happen as I've never modded any bike with clamp on bars,  but yes, I could imagine it's scary as is most times anything falls off your bike :(

Hence the reason i refuse to phone them, online is so much less hassle, and cheaper.
Use GoCompare and they even save your details, so just add another years No Claims Bonus each year then wait a few seconds for the results.


Although my mate uses Kwik Fit Insurance yearly.
They send him a renewal rip off price through the post, he phones up to cancel, then they say "Who have you found cheaper than us?"

LUCKILY it's very easy to spot them, they tend to be young males in a small family car. You can't miss them- there are
TWO VERTICAL STRIPES running down to the rear of the vehicle.
Is it a special care in the community initiative or something?

My road is exactly like that! 30 by my house, then 60, then 30 in the next village. That village being full of old fuckers who do 40 no matter where they are. The 60 stretch is also over a blind hill and pretty twisty, so unless you're on a bike you can't overtake safely.

No I think I get what darrsi means and I think I have been behind a few foreign drivers. We are both on the roundabout (them in front ) and going around and then suddenly they stop on the roundabout to let someone on from the left.
Where as we give way to people already on the roundabout from the right.
Americans have a good system in which some states at least allow (as it would be in our case) left turns on a red light and the etiquette when there are a few left turners at the same junction is first come first served rather than give way from the left or right.

Those shootout articles where they do exactly the same thing. E.g. they take half a dozen bikes, berate the one with the stiffest suspension on the long distance test, then berate the one with the softest suspension on the test track, the most economical one for being slowest, the most powerful for its poor tank range, while the bike that's the best compromise gets slammed for being dull.

On a plus note, the roads were lovely and quiet today, due to it being half term and I knocked 15 minutes off my journey to work.


BAD...  AHHHHH they are all out today.


1) I had the "I'm going to do just under 40mph regardless of the speedlimit" in front of me for about 7 miles this morning and considering most of that was a 60 zone it was annoying, big queue of traffic behind us, carried on doing just under 40mph in a 30 too.  :wall


2) A silly bitch dazzling other drivers with her fog lights on just because it was raining!  THEY ARE FOG LIGHTS YOU SILLY BITCH, RAIN ISN'T FOG!!!  :grumble


3) An Audi at a point where 2 lanes merge into one, could have pulled into the huge empty gap behind me but accelerated the last 30 yards to the merge point just to get in front and cut me up big time.... wanker!  :2guns


4) In Canterbury at a roundabout, 3 lanes, left is left, middle is straight, right is right and straight.  I'm going straight on and am in middle lane.  With about 10 yards to go to the roundabout a car pulls into left hand lane (fair enough, he's going left) then goes straight on forcing me to make an evasive maneuver as puts his car where mine should be..... arsehole!  :thumbdown

Thats a good one! . I get that a lot at a certian piece of road, the thing is that as you say this is where two lanes merge to one so 90% of the time the now single lane traffic he has just come up against is only going 15mph and so I just filter straight past the tosser.

I don't see it's a big deal. If you stopped, held the clutch in with the bike still in gear, then held the front brake and let the clutch out, that would be stalling it (and probably not good), not simply cutting power to the ignition.

I used to stop the engine on the kill-switch  because my bike has an alarm and when I switch the main key off it starts arming which would cause it to go off if I'm still pushing the bike into the shed or getting stuff out of the top box. I only stopped doing this when I found that it was leaving the headlight on which was draining the battery, so now I have to switch the key off, then back on for two seconds, then off again which puts the alarm into service mode.

I then have to remember to re-arm it before I walk away...

Guys switching their bike off with the kill switch. :evil :evil :evil

Its just a bit like stalling your car purposely every time to switch it off instead of using the key :evil

I don't see it's a big deal. If you stopped, held the clutch in with the bike still in gear, then held the front brake and let the clutch out, that would be stalling it (and probably not good), not simply cutting power to the ignition.

I used to stop the engine on the kill-switch  because my bike has an alarm and when I switch the main key off it starts arming which would cause it to go off if I'm still pushing the bike into the shed or getting stuff out of the top box. I only stopped doing this when I found that it was leaving the headlight on which was draining the battery, so now I have to switch the key off, then back on for two seconds, then off again which puts the alarm into service mode.

I then have to remember to re-arm it before I walk away...


Doesn't it make an almighty bang if you're still moving and switch it back on?

I think that only happens if your in gear with the clutch out, fuel on a carbed bike would still be drawn into the engine and ignited when you flick the kill switch to on

People who drive with fog lights on in clear conditions, then this morning in thick fog I saw loads of cars with no lights on at all?  :wall

You beat me to it :) , going along A64 this morning the number of cars with no lights on at all was  ridiculous.

Oh yes then they look at you as though you're stupid when you flash your lights at them. I had one clever soul follow me for about 1/2 mile completely oblivious to any gesture I made and ignoring me turning my lights off and on again.

There is the 3-4 weeks before 5th November when the kids realise they are available in the local shops (they forget the shop a couple of miles away that sells them all year), New year, Diwali, end of Ramadan, Chinese new year, the odd scrotes birthday and whenever the scrotes remember the shop down the road that sells them all year round.

My dogs don't seem to mind them too much if they (the dogs not the fireworks) are inside the house but wont go out into the garden if they hear fireworks going off.

Other variations on the same theme are the pedestrian stood at the Zebra crossing on the phone, but not actually intending to cross, thus wasting everyone's time pulling up and the pedestrian that does a seamless 90 degree turn from the pavement onto the crossing without even pausing/looking to make sure the traffic has stopped.

Bit like if a van you're behind gives way to a car in front of them on a narrow side street, then the car zips round the van but then has to slam on the brakes when they suddenly see you directly behind it as if you've appeared out of knowhere by magic.

On coming traffic swerving in to the middle when we are filtering is Fukin nobish I agree. When that happens I just stop and they won't hit anything stationary. 

Even if u were to pull slightly past the vehicle that's stopped to let someone out of "any side road"  and u had stopped also....it would go 50/50 because of ur road position. Always best to hang back a little if ya can.

You're misunderstanding me.
No side turnings at all.
I'm on about an oncoming vehicle ahead of the vehicle in front of me, that is given the go ahead for right of way.
They then swing in left to go around the vehicle in front of me then swing right again, straight into my path as I'm waiting, quite patiently and innocently I'll hasten to add.  :D

Back to fireworks, there has to be some law introduced as to the size of ones that you can buy for your garden. Last year right next to my car was the remnants of a rocket it was about the size of a loo roll and quite thick and solid plastic at the bottom, if that had hit the car it would of put a dent in it. People in their back gardens are sending these things up without a care in the world as to where the remains will fall.
I also found the stick in the road which was about 3 feet long and 1/4inch thick FFS

I've always argued the fact that you can get nicked for randomly dropping a cigarette butt on the floor, but it's perfectly fine to launch the equivalent of a stick of highly explosive dynamite into the air towards some unsuspecting victims property, not only blatantly littering but possibly causing a major fire hazard or resulting in serious injury to some poor sod.

Some old woman in a big fuck off Merc decided it would be okay to nudge the car forward this morning whilst sitting in static traffic.
Obviously my Hi-Vis jacket wasn't bright enough for her, or the fact that me and the bike were right in front of her car!
She slid across the corner of my end can (ooh err missus) with the plastic bumper, nearly pushing me over in the process until I banged my hand on the bonnet of her motor.
After making the bike vertical again to take the weight off my leg, and quite a few expletives later, she just sat there staring at me with a stony look that resembled an angry Queen Victoria, then a few more expletives later she eventually held her hand up as an apology.
A few more expletives later, I quickly checked the bike for any obvious damage but couldn't see any, so after a few more expletives I rode off with the hump.
There were plastic bits of the bumper sticking out of the exhaust when I got to work but fortunately there appears to be no damage.
That was at 8.30am, but I've calmed down a bit now.  :grumble

Fortunately there's no real damage, although they'll be a nice scrape on her bumper judging by the plastic left in the join of my end can.

I was in the car a while ago in stop/start traffic behind a driver that was obviously texting. Every time the traffic in front of her moved on there was a really long pause until she realised and moved on herself. This went on for about a mile. The traffic then pulled up at a red light. When the lights changed to green...you guessed it, no movement. I gave a bip on the horn and received the 2 finger salute from her thru the back window. Charming :rolleyes.

Drivers who don't carry the most basic of emergency kit.


On my ride into work today I came across the aftermath of an accident. Young lad had just lost control of his Peugeot on a blind bend and slammed into a tree. Front end was fucked, car's a write-off, but it came to rest across both lanes with cars backing up on either side. I got off and asked if he was ok (not a scratch on him, but in shock), then tried to push the car off the road. No luck with that, so I asked the nearest few drivers if they could tow the Peugeot to the side of the road for safety's sake. None of them did, the drivers started getting impatient and going round on the verge to get past.
I stopped every car as they passed and asked if they could help.
Nobody, fucking nobody, had even a tow rope in their cars. WTF?


My basic kit includes a tow rope, light bulbs, fuel can, everything to change a wheel, medical kit, food & water.


People think if they have an AA card they don't need anything else. Fucking dicks. :rolleyes

Along the same lines as my "on the ground" goat getter, I have just heard and thought of another one.
There seems to be a trend from news commentators and or their script writers to jump on the phrase "gone into lock down" to try to add extra dramatics
Just heard it again right now some school kids got too hot in an over crowded classroom and q uite a few started fainting and the news item said the school had gone in to "lock down"

"Can I get a coffee?"  "No you focing can't, you may have one, I'm the coffee make I'll get it for you!"


And yes, I've noticed everyone starting sentences with so, especially on radio and TV when people are replying to a question.

Yep im with both of you on those.
Another one I have spotted is mainly with politicians I have noticed over time that phrases and ways of speaking come and go, the current most used ones are
"We think"
"What we know is "
"what we have seen is "

Most American words are ours, just after the founding fathers colonised the US, our english evolved into what we hear and use today, they didn't have the same evolution hence the difference pronounciation of the same words, tomato v tomato

It's a nightmare trying to keep on top of it. I have to treat it at least twice a year. Yeah I guess it's a bit late for it, but I've found it still works. Probably wouldn't bother again until Spring now tho. The main issue is that re-seeding is a bit hit & miss when it turns cold and wet.

Forget the bikes..welcome to gardeners corner :lol.

I find that the best way is to treat with moss killer and the use an electric scarrifer around about April and the re seed. If you have never use an electric lawn rake before you will be amazed how much moss and thatch you will take out. The south lawns of sharp hall are not that bad for moss but the rear lawns that fall under sharp halls shadow can get mossy in areas.
The gardener didn't scarify this year and I noticed that he did not have to mow the lawns half as much as in previous years due to the thatch suppressing growth.
I am going to have a word with him next year and get him to scarify as Lady Sharp had commented about the lawns condition during her last garden party

Had a new one happen last night on the way home.


Stuck in traffic (again) and I noticed the car about 4 foot in front of me inching backwards, so waited for the brake lights to come on but they didn't so I gave a quick blast on the air horn.


No brake lights and now the car is getting closer and also picking up momentum.
Now I have the air horn on full blast......car still moves towards me!


So I have to make a decision to get the foc out the way in a split second and I had to blindly reverse the bike hoping I never hit anyone behind me, then I swung round the car and moved forward up to the driver's door, then banged on his window.

I WOKE THE BASTARD UP!!!


I could see by the way he jumped and moved his head that he'd nodded off, adding the fact that my air horn is bloody loud and he never even heard it.
Wouldn't be surprised if he hit the car behind either, because if he's anything like me I take an hour to properly wake up.  :lol :z :z :z

LOL

Three locks in as many months, first was a combination which they changed as they were concerned anyone could gain access so changed it for a lock with a key, which of course everyone had access to. So in the name of security they put on a third lock and kept the key to themselves............I have enough focin things to do on start up without having to hunt down a member of their team to open up the bloody box.

The box is plastic, if they carry on like this the box will have an accident

It should be illegal and they should have to stop in the field entrance and scrape it off and not fling it on the main road.

The appalling standard of motorway driving, in particular, people who overtake, then pull in front of you and then slow down. WTF?


And when traffic is fairly heavy and all lanes are moving at a similar pace, people who keep cutting across from one lane to the next, then back again, in the hope they'll end up a couple of car lengths ahead of where they might otherwise be. Don't they see that if everyone moves into the lane that just for a moment is going a bit faster, then that'll slow down and the lane they all moved from will speed up? If it's heavy traffic, why not just stay in one lane until it eases up a bit? Tossers!  :grumble

they cut to a plump middle aged boss of "VOGUE" magazine and ask her who's to blame/responsible for putting pressure on models to be skeletons (paraphrasing here) and she says......ummmmm, I don't know


it's YOU, you foccin bitch, you don't buy your clothes off the peg in Primani so get a foccin grip and own up. You're not a stick insect so these big fashion houses obviously make clothes to fit fat foccers like you.......no need for malnourished girls to wear their clobber in the first place, just get normal sized 8/10/12/4 sized girls etc even though you looked a size 14/16

Ars3hole in a big white Mercedes decides to close the gap between him and a big fuck off truck while I was legitimately filtering through traffic on a 3 lane A road. He did it INTENTIONALLY, just before I reached him.  :grumble Had to slam on brakes hard luckily speed was only around 20mph. Almost lost it- not the bike, my temper. "FUCKING NUTCASE YOU FUCKING NUTCASE ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME ARE YOU FOR REAL YOU FUCKING ARSEHOLE ARESEHOLE" he wisely decided to role his window back up after my tirade, I've obviously mellowed in my old age, resisted the urge to put my boot into the driver door ffs some people!

Ive seen that quite a few times - they just hate it when they see you filtering along while they are stuck in the line, I usually say thank you and go around the other side of them in the gap they have just made there, if it takes me past the drivers side it gives me a chance to give them the slow head shake

Met one of these arseholes driving an enclosed rigid truck on the way home this evening coming towards me on our unlit "just wide enough in places for the Fazer and a truck" road, in the pissing rain and howling wind. Had to stop and when I looked behind at it, he had one near side rear light and no marker lights.  :grumble Just as well it was white in colour.

Just glad I was on one of the wider parts of the road when I met him.

Ahh, think I've just clicked onto what you mean.
Your not meaning a load over the width of the truck, your meaning that the truck just didn't have any marker lights??
So basically the driver hasn't checked his lights, or if he has, he's not bothered to fix them before he drives off.

Sharpy, next time you pass a car like this have a peak inside and see the speedo and rev counter lit up. Citroens and Toyota Prius are classics.

Fazersharp, my view is the same as Frosties etc as I tend not to notice "other lights " in the car. If its dark outside and the speedo is visible then my lights must be on. This is one reason when I drive my dads Audi I go into the menus and turn off the DRL's.

There are another bunch of fecwits though. Those who drive down the road with no lights on and you wonder when the last time they looked at their speedo was as there is no way that they could have seen it in the dark.
Title: Re: Today's "What Gets My Goat"
Post by: fazersharp on 18 December 2015, 05:32:01 PM
My speedo and main dash is an lcd but in reverse in that it is black but the numbers are silver/clear and it is permanently lit green from the back other wise you would not see them. But to help me realize my lights are not on as well as the cd ect being lit, the main permanently lit dash dims when the lights ar turned on so that you realize that its looking brighter than it should.
So yes it is a bad design that can lead to driver error but as you say people just must not be looking at the dash at all.

I mentioned that on a different post yesterday.
They do fecking notice, they're just lazy bastids that don't care.
I've seen one overtaking a car coming towards me before that had no right light, so the car was on my side of the road but the only lit light looked like a bike within its lane.

I think part of the issue with that is the fact that the headlamp bulbs on most cars are so difficult to replace nowadays due to limited access to the rear of the lamps.

There is so much extra stuff under the bonnet these days and it all has to be crammed in somewhere.

I've been told that on some models the bumper has to come off to change a bulb!.

I reckon it puts people off trying to do it themselves, when years ago it would have been a breeze.

An hour long show is generally around 40 minutes long in reality, i just hit the 2 minute forward button twice on my remote and it cancels them out.

Yep, the only thing I watch "live" is the News and even then I tend to switch it on, stick it on Live Pause, put the TV on standby and get on with something else for a while before speed-reading the news ticker and seeing if there's actually anything that is of sufficient interest to watch.

Given that so much news these days seems to be vox-pops of people going "oh isn't it terrible that this happened to me" or talking heads given tedious "analysis" that very often adds bugger all to the understanding of the situation, it saves a lot of time!

Today's "What gets my goat" is......

Public outpouring of grief over a musician who was only mildly talented but is only famous for surviving as long as he did on a diet of narcotics and alcohol. I read today that he was a "leading light of rock" & a "truly talented musician".... Really??? he had a voice that sounded like a wookie gargling gravel and a guitar that judging by his music only had 3 strings (all of the being G chord).

OK he was famous in the 70's & 80's when most music sucked and anyone who could shout into a microphone could be famous then..... As you can guess I'm not a fan. It's sad that someone has lost their life but don't deify the bloke.

Landlords who don't evict aggressive customers.

Two pissheads out last night looking for trouble, one of the lads was carrying a knife and had pulled it on someone who had been drinking with them. When they left one forgot his coat, rather than wait for them to return I suggested the bar manager (female) take his coat out to him as there was less chance of a confrontation if a woman went out to them.

According to the manager this makes me a pussy, focin idiot couldn't see how a man going out could potentially cause an issue. This lad was pushing people around her bar from the moment he walked in and she had done nothing to try to diffuse the situation, only served them several more beers before they finally went (like that was going to help)

Not focin happy

When I relocated from Newbury to Kettering I took a stop-gap job in a busy village pub, and because I am "of a larger build" than most people that the landlord and landlady used to insist that that I evict the trouble makers (mostly pissed up farm workers). What used to annoy me is that it soon became a game to these idiots and more and more I was constantly "escorting" people out through the fire exit using their heads to open the doors. What pissed me off that the landlord knowing that i would sort the problem started to get really aggressive with the troublemakers and when they kicked off he would be nowhere to be seen only to pop up again like Mr Ben's shopkeeper once the problem had been dealt with.

I got sick of it and when I started demanding that they get a doorman or at least increase my wages to cover what I was having to deal with, I was laid off.... funny that. Last I heard the pub had got so rough and the landlord could not cope and had given up the tenancy. But I really don't get why people go to pubs purely to start trouble as it ruins everyone's evening.

I'll never forget an evening, years ago now.  We had been in our first house for about a year and thought we would give the local pub a go.  Despite living in Sittingbourne all my life I had never been to this pub, but I'd never heard anything bad about it.


We were having a drink, playing some pool when a drunk chap comes out the toilets and rolls across the pool table mid game.  I simply said, "hey mate, no need for that, we're in the middle of a game" and that was it.


He's squaring up, his mates come over (BIG mates, proper BIG mates), my mate stands up and there is lots of "you want it" from the 3 chaps now in front of us.  One other says "leave it lads, we've only just got out, don't want to go back just yet"  I'm shitting it, coz I am far from a fighter and not built to fight plus these guys look battle hardened.


Anyway,  managed to calm it by talking my way out of it and the 4th guy calmed his lot with the prison talk.


The land lord came over but stood well back and not once said anything or did anything.  Once it was all ended he went back behind the bar and not even an apology of any sort.


We never ever went back!

I've found over the years that it's rarely people who go for just a few beers that mainly start trouble, but the ones who are bugled up to the eyeballs on the devil's dandruff, and then also mix it with booze.
I've seen many a placid man, and woman, turn into complete and utter wankers when they're off their heads.
The even more annoying thing is that they don't even appreciate the fact that they're being complete arseholes either.

It pisses me off as well when I read newspaper articles about people in court that have done heinous crimes but it's always alcohol that gets blamed because it's an easy excuse, but there's hardly ever any mention of drug using.
The criminal liars tend to keep that one as quiet as possible in court to paint a rosier profile of the accused.  :rolleyes

off to a meeting at the ozzy and fuel the bike up, been a while since I've rode so go to put air in the tyres starting with the rear. Puts me little dog leg adapter on and air starts leaking out the tyre......being a daft foccer I think that if the machine can get it in quicker than the valve is letting out then eventually I'll get 42 into the rear.......WRONG :'(

IT KEPT PISSING OUT.

tried the front incase it was a dodgy adapter but inflated to 36 no probs so I decide its the rear valve, cut me losses at 4 psi in the rear, rang the ozzy and said I'll be at least an hour, rode the short distance home (too far to push) at 4 mph keeping an eye on things and got home ok. I'll see if I can fit the car foot pump and get air in that way before shooting down the tyre place to sort a new valve

Agrees with YamFazFan on the headlight bulb replacement issue. my box is a MR2 Spider and I have to anticipate a head lamp failure about 4 months in advance so I can go on a strict diet to lose about 1\2 lbs per finger to get anywhere near the bulb holder let alone release the F-----g thing, and my fingers seem to be about 2 inches shorter that the gangley sod who designed the car.
To replace the side lamp bulbs a Toyota engineer said the easiest way is to remove the front bumper and front panel to get to the bottom headlamp shell fixing screw remove the shell to replace the bulb.
Seems like an easy option Doh! :'(

faulty tyre valves

off to a meeting at the ozzy and fuel the bike up, been a while since I've rode so go to put air in the tyres starting with the rear. Puts me little dog leg adapter on and air starts leaking out the tyre......being a daft foccer I think that if the machine can get it in quicker than the valve is letting out then eventually I'll get 42 into the rear.......WRONG :'(

Do you not change the valves every second time or every time you change the tyres?

I would double check if the dealer changed the valves  because many do not unless you ask them to. Valves perish like tyres and eventually crack near the rim..

I helped a damsel in distress the other week, she'd got a flat tyre on a dark rainy night and didn't seem sure on how to change the wheel. Apparently she'd had a slow puncture and some local garage had repaired it? When I arrived on the scene she was struggling to remove the wheel trim and tbh it wasn't easy when I took over, whoever fitted it must have put some force behind it as they had not lined the trim up and had sheared off the valve, no shit, it wasn't there. Focin cowboys, it must have been flat when she drove it away! Way I see it is you've got to tell them exactly what you want, may seem patronising, but at least you know it's hopefully been done correctly.

Had a BMW (what else) move over to the other side of the road in front of me last week, didn't indicate or anything, but i stupidly presumed he wanted the parking space.
So as he's now out of my way i carry on to go past him and he then goes for a left hand u-turn.

He moved left, she assumed he was taking the next left, continued past in the right hand lane of the dual carriageway only to find he had moved left to get a bigger swing at the (no u-turns signed) gap in the central reservation. She had to be taken away in the air ambulance, and the BMW driver just trotted out some lame crap to the judge about being a CEO and needing his car, he did get done but not nearly commensurate with the damage to her and her bike that he wilfully caused by being a typical BMW cockwomble. He had no chance of doing a runner though - the car behind him was old bill.

She was lucky in a way because there were witnesses to the accident. Not so with my accident where the young scrote turned into me without looking or indicating and got away with it because it was his word against mine that he signalled.  :o

Sorry to hear that Freck. It really is luck of the draw who's on the road near you, whether they are good drivers or whether they'll stop if they witness something. I got knocked off my old FZR600R by some buffoon diving into a parking space on the other side of the road just as I was overtaking. He knew it was his fault but insurance said I hit rear quarter so they blamed me. Then some old dear came along and started having a go at me about how all the bits of plastic fairing were making the place untidy and I'd better pick them up! I was like WTF? Yeah of course madam, as soon as I get this f***Ing motorbike off me I'll get the broom out! FFS!

Back in my courier days I had a woman step out from behind a van, right in front of me. BANG! Me, her and my bike all over the road. Within seconds a lynch party congregated all muttering about how bikers are a danger on the road and I must have been going too fast etc.

No fucker asked if I was OK or offered to help.

Most muppets that fit HIDs do not check the alignment after fitting them.
They also fail to realise that they are actually illegal unless you have automatic self levelling headlights and headlamp washers fitted to prevent dazzling oncoming traffic whenever they go over a bump in the road.

cyclists (again...)


Not so much the general people out for a ride but the wannabies.  Was out for a quick ride at the weekend and going down a country road a huge "peloton" came around a 90 degree bend heading towards me, completely filling both sides, about 30 of em!  They were not for yielding either, I gradually moved over to the left as I approached but they stayed in situ, seemingly they were more concerned about keeping in their little formation.  It was only when the lead riders realized that I wasn't going to stop and/or ride right in the gutter for the assembled royalty that they started giving a sharp wave to the riders behind to move in.  Absolutely no nods to me that I had given them a wide berth on my side of the road or anything, more like looks of disgust as I had had the audacity to take my bike onto a cycling race track...

Why can't workmen fill in all the damn potholes in a street while they've got the tarmac to hand, rather than just filling in the biggest ones?


And what the feck are they making roads with these days, is it some form of marmite and breadcrumb combo?
They just seem to be disintergrating really quickly.

Do you live near me? It's really shite the way they repair roads round here. They even stopped tarmacing in the middle of a rut because the depth was marginally less than the minimum. FFS, what do they think will happen next, the bleeding new tarmac will peel up because the jobs not finished properly.

I took a different route home last night so had to keep my eyes peeled for potholes, but still ended up whacking one full on, but they look like they've been dug with a shovel these days rather than just slowly growing bigger.
I've never seen so many that are so bad before.
It's a proper nightmare when riding in the dark, especially if it's raining 'cos they just fill up with water and resemble a puddle.  :grumble

To be fair they have to confirm they are speaking to the right person. We have to do that when we phone up patients from the hospital. Some people don't want other people to know they are ill or possibly what they are ill with, so we have to make sure it is the patient before we disclose any details. Mind you the bank or whoever should be expected to prove who they are as well.

:agree

I work in an industry that was historically a male industry. Now women are being promoted above men simply because they are women rather than on merit or experience. Its the same in many other industries and not just related to male/female but for ethnic reasons.

Look at the police and fire service for example. They reduced the height requirements and the strength tests to get women and small Asians etc into the mix simply to meet some unreasonable target. The result is now that some fire service staff don't have the physical strength  to carry someone out of a burning building and coppers who cant hold their own in a pub brawl.

People should be recruited/promoted to do a job because they can meet the requirements for that job, not dumb down the job so that they can meet some other non-sensible requirement.

How come in the winter you have the heating on 20 degrees and you are still cold in bed, but then come the summer and its 20 degrees at night and the weather presenters start saying it will be uncomfortable sleeping

 :lol . That's just one of life's mysteries ;) .

 I'm yet to find anyone who can tell me why golf caddie's at the big tournaments carry that great big bag around on their shoulder rather than just use a trolley to wheel it around like everyone else does :rolleyes

I want to know where does the dark go when you turn the light on..............

What's with more.and more people stopping short at traffic lights.  I am noticing it more often now, filter up to red lights and the front car is a car length back from the white line.

Is it that there is a space reserved for cyclists at the front? We have a lot of them in Coventry and it annoys me when people in cars ignore them and go right to the line.

No, back from the white line.  As freck says it actually helps you because you can just take a normal position when filtering rather than having to keep between cars.

What's the problem? It means you can filter past, move into that space, then pull away without worrying about some twat trying to beat you off the line :thumbup

There was a video clip of someone who deliberately rode his motorbike in a cycle lane when Police were checking and tried to make the same argument.

Nice try, but he still got a £30 fine...

when people stop in a queue at the lights but stop 10 feet from the car in front, then once you've stopped behind them they move forward.  :rolleyes

Because if the idiot behind approaches too fast, you've got a bit of space to move into, rather than having them slam into your rear.

Also Bike instructors teach you to leave a bike and a half's length between you and the vehicle in front so, if they break down or you need to avoid someone behind you, you've got room to pull past.

Insurance, how the foc do they calculate it?
Recieved stupid renewal quote from Carole Nash of £256, which included a broker fee of £50! Told them on phone I would not be renewing with them at any price and went online.
Got a quote of £101 from Bennets, went to their website to buy it and when checking it realised I had put wrong birth year in, 1947 instead of 1957, then the quote changed to £98, also realised I should tell them  that I am a named driver on my sons` Peugeot Boxer van who is in the middle of trying to get a claim settled against an asshole of a DPD driver who reversed into him and and is denying liability even though the dashcam shows him doing it, and then the quote changed to £92!
So come on, how the foc do they calculate it, someone must know.

Title: Re: Today's "What Gets My Goat"
Post by: BBROWN1664 on 10 May 2016, 01:14:56 PM
First one is easy Slappy.

Based on what you told them, £101.. You then tell them you are actually young enough to have most of your faculties still, so they reduced it a bit as you are less of a risk (£98) then you told them that you wont be out on the road all of the time being a risk to others at their expense as you are a named driver on something else so they revised it down again to £92.


Work this one out though. I have two bikes on my multibike policy. Aparently, with Hastings, you cant have three bikes on a multibike policy so had to take out another policy with zero no claims etc. £170.
Went elsewhere with the same details and got it for £72. This is a 900i Triumph Tiger with no no-claims. I'm a youngster at 47 too!

Another insurance anomaly, not a bike but when I was first looking for insurance quotes for my daughters car.
She had just passed her test and I was getting some quote on different cars so we could then get a car that we know would be cheep insurance.
The section how long held a full licence, when I was looking at the time with 1 month having passed it was dearer than if I said 2 months having passed which was for when we may find a car.
So every month she held a full licence for the quote came down by something like £20 even though she had no extra driving experience.

Simple, they pick a number out of the air and think "can we get away with charging some mug that?"

If you challenge it, then, miraculously, they find a "better deal" (which they should have offered you in the first place)

Just arranged a Latvian friend his 2nd year of insurance, he'd been third party only with lot's of restrictions to keep the 1st year as low as possible, directline (his present insurer) renewal was about £900, which was more or less what he paid for the 1st, with all the same restrictions. An online quote on one of the money saving sites was £513 fully comp with only a milage restriction. I called directline to see if they could compete, £1050 was the best they could do......

How the foc does that work

Bollox to that mileage restriction deal, that reminds me of the one where they fit a black box tracker and monitor you constantly in your car, i'm not sure if they do it on bikes yet though?.
I got that one year for a mate of mine and the restrictions are a joke, they stitch you up from all sides, and if you consider a 2nd year what they did with him was make the total mileage of his first years driving the upper limit for the next year. Problem is, he was deliberately taking it easy the first year so as not to exceed his given limit.
Then they charged him to remove the tracker when he complained about it.


I fully understand this would be your own fault, but if i remember correctly there was a clause that if you "accidently" exceed 100mph, the tracker clocks it and you become uninsured as your policy instantly gets cancelled!
FOC that.

When you lose your car keys and tear the house apart looking for them because you can't remember actually having them in the house after you get home, and you worry all night that you might have dropped them outside and some thieving little shit has taken them with the intention of coming back later to take the car, and you tell this to your wife and she worries about it too, and the next day you get a call from your mate asking for a lift so you take the spare keys and drive the car to his house, but your mrs assumes you've gone on your bike so when she gets out of the shower and sees the car gone she calls the police and reports it stolen, and the first thing you know about this is when you and your mate get pulled over by the coppers, and it turns out your darling little 17 month old daughter had put your keys in the kitchen bin which you'd emptied into the wheelie bin so had to go through all the old cat food and shit just to get it back!

Those buggers are even more clever than the insurance companies.
They reduce your monthly direct debit but then you start running up a bill because you are not paying enough to cover the costs of what you use so then they send you a huge bill at the end of the year.

One of my modern life gripes is that nobody introduces themselves. It's particularly prevalent on the telephone i.e. caller: is that Brian? Oi have some manners and courtesy - give your name and reason for calling before asking for information - to do otherwise is just plain rude. It's just as bad at the front door, on the street pretty much everywhere in fact.


During the Iceland volcano dust cloud time I had a call from an airline - is that <name>? are you related to <parents name?> can you confirm your address? Right stop there says me, before I give out any personal details beyond perhaps my first name don't you think it might be polite to say who you are and give your reason for calling? Oh she said, I suppose you are right. We are calling to let you know that your parents are stuck in Dubai and we can't find them a flight home.... Well why not say that then?

Out driving my truck today in Glasgow City and in front of me was one of those scooters delivery guys with the big topbox on the back with deliveroo on it and the obligatory L plates.

The guy on it is constantly looking to his left hand area and I'm thinking he's looking at the only mirror he has!

Wrong! As he's looking there, he's lifting his left hand and pressing a satnav or mini computer or something WTF!

We stop at lights and I gets out my truck and walk upto him and he's oblivious I'm even there as he's too busy tapping away, so I tap him on the shoulder and ask him why he's doing such a stupid thing and his reply was how car drivers say...."what's wrong, I wasnt doing anything wrong?"
My reply was "I ride bikes too and when car drivers etc fart about using mobile phones or satnavs, a fellow biker gets killed or seriously injured!"

Blokes that won't carry a handkerchief or tissues when they've got a cold and blow their nostrils out one at a time onto the pavement.

Disgusting.

Oh don't, there's a young lad at my work who blows his nose but holds the tissue about 6 inches away from his face.
It's kind of impressive, but makes me heave.

This current trend for standing miles back from the counter in shop queues.

Yes it's polite not to stand right on top of the person at the front and to leave a suitable gap, but is 30 feet back really necessary!?

In fast-food restaurants now you have no idea who's already ordered or who's waiting to order :rolleyes

Yep agree. They are all very annoying.


  Earlier today I joined the 2 lane motorway in front of an HGV. Heavy traffic in the outside lane.

  After approx. a quarter of a mile I came up behind a car doing about 55 MPH. Still heavy traffic in outside lane, so no opportunity to overtake.

  Said lorry comes roaring up about half an inch off my bumper flashing his headlamps. I still can't overtake the car in front.

  Eventually the lorry overtakes (having the first opportunity, being at the rear of our 3 vehicle convoy).

  He levels alongside my window and gives an extended blast on his air-horn, then carries on.

  Unless he was auditioning for a re-make of 'Duel' I fail to see what the twats problem with me was :rolleyes

  I appreciate what a difficult job it must be trying to manoeuvre a truck that size in motorway traffic and the vast majority are great drivers, but there is a few who lord it over everyone else simply because they are the biggest thing there.

Was it a tipper truck? They tend to get paid load bonuses so want to get there and back as quickly as possible.

Either way, a truck on a single carriageway road is not meant to go over 50mph.

It was a container lorry.

The motorway was 2 lanes in each direction.

I was surprised at his speed. After he had overtaken myself and Mr Slowly in front of me 'Slow' accelerated to a steady 60MPH, but the truck was still pulling away from us both gradually.

I stayed back, reluctant to get alongside him. It was only a few miles to my turn-off and you never know what someone like that is going to do, do you.

The next prize numpty was the bloke in a BMW X5 who ignored all the signs in the roadworks which say "Lanes 1&2 M42, Lanes 2 & 3 M5". He then realises he wants the M5 not the M42 and cuts across two lanes of slip road followed by the chevroned area to end up back on the M5.

Thats a regular occurence on the M5 northbound approaching M42 junction-a lot of cagers use lane 3 to overtake slower moving vehicles on the uphill section then find they have to speed up over the so-called 50mph roadworks limit& then have to cut up other vehicles to cross over to lane 1/2 for M42.I see it EVERY time I come along that section.


Good one yesterday coming back from Wales. Mucklow Hill, Halesowen steep uphill 2 lane road 40mph limit with roundabout half way up. Numpty drove the whole hill in outside lane at speed varying from 20-30mph even though NOTHING in lane 1. Approaching 30 mph limit at top of hill he/she speeds up to 35-40! :eek

I find it is the other way round. Plenty to fit Mr Average but nothing for the better padded people. I blame head office. They have a formulae that says they will sell 1x size 40, 2x38, 3x36 etc so only order that in.

The reason they only sell that is because they never order more of the larger sizes you fecwits. If you had more 40" trousers, you would sell more.

Yes! I blame the stupid driving instructors. Why force new & usually nervous/hesitant pupils into rush hour traffic conditions when they havent even mastered basic car control(Plenty of quiet trading estates to practice)Also b****y driving instructors blatantly breaking speed limits driving from one lessonjust [size=78%]finished to next pupil. Had one pass me the other day 45mph in a 30 limit-some example that.[/size] :eek

People who drive 1 inch from my bumper because I have the audacity to go 30 in a 30 zone

Also
two lanes of traffic going the same way in a 30 zone - at the end of the road is a right filter which is where I need to go, so I am in the right hand lane doing 30,  focs who drive right up my arse and zig to the left land and then zag back in font of me - glaring at me as they go around my left at 40mph -like I am the one doing something wrong, ho yes and because they were glaring at me they didn't see the pedestrian crossing gong amber and so now I have to brake harder because the foc cut me up.

Also
Same two lane one direction road, in the right lane there is always a long queue but the left hand lane usually runs smooth, I stop at some yellow hatched markings and every focing time a tosser in the left lane uses it as an opportunity to cut in and then blocks the turn for the right turners (what the hatchings were for) which then leads to that lane backing up all the way down to MY right turn so no no focer is moving.

I should of just said.-- "People who do not know how to use a hatched box junction"
But I feel better now.

People sitting in the right hand lane really pisses me off. Round where I live we have roundabouts everywhere connected by dual carriageways. Many are over half a mile long and people come off of one round about and sit in the right hand lane at the speed limit (or lower) to go straight over the next roundabout and then turn right 2-3 roundabouts later.

Drive on the fickin left until about 3-400 metres before the roundabout then move out.

Problem is that when you are travelling at the 30 speed limit in the left lane and everyone in the right lane is passing you doing 37 they then will not let you cross over to the right lane, so you learn your lesson and stay in the right lane doing the 30 speed limit. Doing 30 in a 30 zone is not sitting in a lane, it shouldn't be holding anyone up as they should only be doing 30 too.

I've seen him twice since down my local pub, spilling his pint all over his feet, absolutely smashed off his head both times,but still shouting to everyone he's a local politician.

Please note that to the left, about 6-8 car lengths away are traffic lights, so i'm not on about cars rolling in front of me in the hope the traffic in front will move off, because the lights are red, and the traffic ain't going anywhere.
That's when you get the slight turn of the head and they then think "Ooohh, i wonder if that chap with the balaclava and crash helmet on with the angry looking eyes making all that noise and pointing at me wanted to come out of that road that i just parked across on top of this big lettered Keep Clear sign?"  :look

There is a reason behind these strange looking bikes, i think you get a good cardio work out on them but they're low impact on the body even though they're full weight bearing, so they can be used to assist recovery from bone injuries, joint replacements, etc.

A few years back I had regular kidney xrays as I had stones through not drinking enough beer (all sorted now  ;) ) and after the first couple of gown pointlessness I used to to on my bike and would have a pair of shorts under my leathers and so would just strip down the them --- after telling the clipboard person, there is no need to go in to a gown for a leg scan, its just the de-fault easy position for them. There was not any point in even taking off my leathers because they would replace them with a lead blanket over my knackers to stop them from getting radiated even though they had already been disconnected from the delivery chap .

The worst are the right turners who, whilst initially sat in what most would consider the correct positron (offside to the center of the road), then proceed with a little shimmy to the left before proceeding to turn right... :wall

Even worse are those who drive the 1/4 mile run up at 20mph before taking the sweep

Twatty VW van drivers who ride your arse and then undertake you clipping your handlebar to then get stuck behind the five vehicles and one large lorry in front, and then scream blue murder as you overtake again and smash his wing mirror off. :D

People that can't keep their face out of their smart phone. I had to pop into town to see a mate and I got bumped into about 5 times by dumbass teens not looking where they are going as their faces were buried in their phones, no apologies either just blank looks like zombies and when I prompted them for an apologie they looked at me like I was speaking another language.

Looking around for a new bike at the moment and peoples descriptions including:


"Tasteful mods" - your looking at a bike with gold chazzo leavers and a purple pro bolt kit.
"Massive Spec" - aforementioned "tasteful mods" and perhaps some semi fancy brake pads and/or a host of non performance related bolt-ons even going as far as listing the handlebar grips and spark plugs.
Listing the bike as a 2010 etc when it is in fact a late registered earlier model.  The seller knows this so why not list it as such.
"Wants for nothing" - then explains a small crack in the fairing or torn seat.
"First to see will buy" - you have seen the listing on for weeks...


and on...

Similar to this I hate it when you go to a dealers that you've had dealings with for many happy years, to then pop in and find that the normal person you deal with is on holiday, so you think OK! I'll speak with someone else as you feel that the standards of the normal person should be the same as everyone in the company, but the person you end up speaking with is full of crap and spins you a load of lies and tries to sell you something completely different to what you are enquiring about eg "I'm looking at buying an MT-10 whats the best finance deal you can do for me" "well sir on the Honda Goldwing we can offer you a Blar Blar % over Blar Blar months, how does that sound" "when is John back off his holiday as you're bloody useless"  :lol (that actually happen to me the other day, I don't think he works there anymore)

to top it off, they know its shit so wont even give their phone number.
I did offer the guy £450 for it a few weeks back but he claims its worth every penny of the £999 he has it advertised for even with a knackered battery/tyre/paint etc

Pisses me off when people are trying to sell things for £1000+ without an MOT. I mean who are they trying to kid with all that 'it will pass first time' bollocks
They can use all the shitty excuses in the world but at the end of it if they honestly thought it would pass first time then they would fork out the 30 odd quid to help it sell.

I was gonna say the engine had seaside salt air erosion, but Croydon certainly rules that out, and it would be more be likely fire damage from rioting.
I would imagine that a combination of neglect and jet washing is why the paint has flaked so badly, which is a shame on a low mileage bike.

The idiot on the moped I've been encountering the last few days. Not content with having an illegal L plate 2.5 inches across :eek they also ride at 22 mph in the gutter. That's bad enough but this idiot has a habit of filtering past traffic to the front of the queue at traffic lights. All well and good you say, that's what bike are for. But if you then travel at 22 mph all the traffic you've just overtaken then has to overtake you within 100 yards of the lights FFS.
Not content with that, I was stuck behind a bus and a car trying to get past a pushbike which was using the cycle lane. (since adding in a cycle lane on both sides of the road it's made the space for cars 6 foot narrower which makes it harder to overtake bikes if there's opposing traffic). Bugger me if this prat then undertakes me and the car in front and is contemplating undertaking the bus as well when the bus fortunately managed to get past the bike.

I asked if Learners can carry passengers at the riding school where I got licence from and the head instructor stated that at no point can a rider on L plates carry a passenger, he did go into more detail about it but I can't remember the other stuff and the long and short of it is no they can't carry passengers at all.

Yes - One of the many changes when the test rules all changed.
It may be in this case, as happened to me once, I was the qualified rider riding my friends bike that had L plates on with him on the back. We got stopped but the only thing that was potentially illegal was displaying L plates that were not needed.

I used to ride my Moped with my dad (usually when he was pissed) on the back to get home from the pub.

All I got was a message saying  "due to the high volume of calls all our agents are busy, we will connect you to the next available agent" After I eventually got through the young lady I spoke to put me on hold for another 5mins while she reset my account, if everybody has the same trouble as me it`s no wonder they are busy   :wall

I have to agree the the opinion above that is a £400 to £500er at the most and to be honest I would not even pay that for it, it was probably not to bad before he slung a cover over it and left it in his garden for a long period.


I have to admit if I was trying to sell it I would have made some effort to make it look a bit better by cleaning it and making sure it was all together before taking pictures.

BBC reporting,
Just seen tonight's outside source reporting from the EU summit pointing from the back of a crowd of journalists ( "look at all of them clamouring, hordes of them ) then shows a camera view of Merkel through a crowd of cameras and arms and heads. Next back to the studio and says "now lets look at what the Chancellor was saying" and they they are with a camera right up front and centre WTF ! after they were just pointing saying look at them all.
How many focing BBC hacks are over there on a right little lovey jolly at tax payers expense.

You should try the Daily Star, they know more about the worlds armed forces movements, World War 3, and meteor strikes that will end the world that you could ever imagine.
Add to that the younger "reporters" sole purpose on there is to highlight nipple slips, sideboob, underboob, booty and camel toe to any unsuspecting (or deliberate) woman they can shove a camera at.
And they couldn't predict a sandstorm in the desert, their weather predictions are simply consistently shocking beyond belief, so they have a tendency to do different reports on the same day of heatwaves, snowstorms, thunderstorms, drought and flooding in the hope that one of them will actually be correct.........and they still fuck it up.  :rolleyes

GRRRRRRRR!!!!

In the car, entering a multi-storey carpark and I see a BMW approaching from the left on a right angle bend. Fortunately I stopped short of the bend as the beemer cut the corner (as expected) and pulled level with me,  DRIVER ON THE PHONE !!!!Of course he could not see me as his hand was up to his right ear.
I looked at him and shook my head. His response was..........."You F***king c**t !!!"

There was a temptation to jump out of my car and explain to him the error of his ways and actually show him what a c**nt looks like but sooner or later he will learn the hard way.

I think plod should nick the parents as they bought the foccing bikes and they know the only places they can ride em is on the roads or the local green, surely that makes them an accessory or something.

Get as much evidence as you can: reg numbers, photos, videos, witnesses etc and just keep bombarding the police get others to do the same thing as I was informed by a mate of mine who is an ex copper, that if they get so many people make a complaint then their policy states that they have to act on it and if they don't then take it higher up the chain of command and give them some shit.

WTF.......do it any other day and it's demanding with menaces and you'd call the police!


And how is it you can get fined for dropping a cigarette on the floor, but it's absolutely fine to launch very high explosive rockets away from your own home to explode, possibly set fire to something, and litter someone elses property, or the street?

Its mainly young kids with their parents waiting around the corner/ hedge/ end of the drive, we get chocolate in and sweets and dress the front of the house, its very rare to get teenagers because "trick or treat" oh yes treat ---"here's your chocolate eyeball and a jelly worm so not really very cool.

I also had one stuck in sharp halls gutter. We get it in october with de-wali and it seems that the bigger bang you can get means you are more respected in "your society"  ;) because it shows that you can afford the biggest.     

So, last night I popped out to have a couple of beers with a mate, and I'm sitting outside and I feel what I thought was someone slapping me on the shoulder?
I looked around and there was nobody there then saw the remains of a firework that had landed on me.  >:

THEN, we were walking towards home, and my mate lives on the other side of the main road so said our goodbyes and I start walking up my road.
I heard a car pull into my road and slowly pull up just behind me, but didn't take too much notice, then I felt something hit my foot and heard a hissing noise.
Nope, it wasn't a snake, but when I looked down it did resemble a stick of dynamite.  :eek
The bastards in the car had broken the stick off a large firework then lobbed it straight at me, then put their foot down and sped off up my road, the cowardly bastards.
Meanwhile, sensing that maybe I should do something rather sharpish, I ducked down then ran towards a tree hoping to get behind it, but the rocket was luckily aiming the other way and screamed off in the opposite direction then exploded, but obviously showering me with sparks on its way.

So, that just about reinforces my views on fireworks, they serve no purpose whatsoever other than noise and danger, especially when in the hands of a bunch of c***s.  :grumble

When I was (much) younger, I lived in a village that had a monastery located nearby.
Being young and not so clever then, we used to regularly buy crow scarers from the local gun shop and then spend the odd evening lobbing individual crow scarers into the monastery car park, ducking down (or driving off) whilst all the monks came running out to see what the noise was.

Would have been around 5pm, so yeah they were probably off the clock  :lol . Joking aside, the question is, if I had not seen the car comming at high speed when my light changed to green, pulled out as would have been my right to and got hit would they then do something? or are they still off the clock? as they were in a police car and in full uniform.

I seem to recall in my days you used to walk into somewhere, ask if they had any jobs going, do a little on the job training and have a short 'chat' then a job!

Plods shift patterns used to be 2pm till 10pm,10pm till 6am,6am till 2pm. Only know as used to maintain phone systems for the Met.Changeover times were the best times for all sorts of crimes especially forecourt petrol theft.

So they should have been on the clock and done their job. I know it might seem like a little thing jumping a red light but it's the what could have happened and if they see the plod are not going to give a shit then there is the possibility that they will do it more often then increasing the risk of an accident.

Fricking police that don't do their job. On my way home last night a police car was waiting in the lane next to me at traffic light controled junction and a car comming from the right clearly jumped a red light (at high speed I should add) and the police did nothing, when I gave the officer a gesture to say 'well! go after them then' I just got a look as if to say what's your problem  :2guns :bobby :wall

I witnessed just the thing on my way back from work a while ago.  The car in front of me shot through a red but the police sitting waiting at the adjoining lights blue'd and two'd it straight after her.  So amused was I at this that I laughed rather loud as I rode past her where she'd been pulled up.  Next thing I know is I'm getting pulled by the ol bill at the next set of lights.  I think they thought I was a young inbred as I was on my old 125 smoker.  Asked what I was laughing at, replying that I thought it amusing that an idiot had actually been pulled for a change.  I was asked to remove my helmet and their demeanour totally changed when they saw I was, lets say, more mature.  Asked if it was my bike and if I was insured.....no checks, let me on my way.

I can go one better, my hopefully soon to be ex mrs.

Many years ago we were doing the school run. Having dropped my boy off we were carrying onto Chester for shopping. Anyway a tractor was holding back traffic so on a straight stretch of road I floored it (40 limit) so maybe hit 50?(it was an old Astra). Out steps Plod and waves me down(he was a sargent). Produces his book and was about to write me. I explained I was only accelerating to get past the tractor. Well he says you are behind it again. My Mrs pipes up, go on book him!!!!!! I told him not to over take here as I know the police are here at this time of the morning, so throw the book at him. The guy looks at me and puts the book away and says I will let you off with a caution this time sir, take it easy eh!!

He had a look on his face that said it all really, I am married to a twat like that as well, and she is going to make your life hell all day, punishment enough me thinks. ;)

What you did was not against the law as you were overtaking, unless you continued at 50 in a 40 after you cleared the slower vehicle/obstruction.

if my wife did that to me I would have told the plod that she was carrying a weapon then driven off when they drag her out of the car  :evil :lol

Wrong. Exceeding the speed limit to overtake something is not mitigation.
The limit is the limit.

The limit is the limit.

It was the plod that informed me that it is not against the law, due to the fact that you need to get past the slower vehicle as quickly (but safley) as possible, if the vehicle is doing the speed limit then yes you shouldn't be overtaking any way but if it's a say 40 limit and you need to overtake a vehicle doing say 20 then you need to go faster to get past, it will put you in a danger zone for longer if you only go to the max limit for that road, as long as once you have cleared the slow moving vehicle you return to the speed limit for that road it is as I have been informed a legal manoeuvre.
The law is not black and white. If i'm wrong then I've been missinformed, but I've done it may times in the car and on the bike and never once have I been pulled for it, did it last night on my way home and the plod were right behind me and did nothing.
Title: Re: Today's "What Gets My Goat"
Post by: scoobiemandan on 03 November 2016, 02:42:02 PM
It's a very shady area but as I understand it, there is mitigation if you break the speed limit whilst overtaking to safely complete the maneuver.  If you were travelling at 60mph behind a car on a 60mph limit and overtook then you'd be breaking the law.  If you overtook a car doing 40mph on the very same road and went over the speed limit to complete the move then you'd most likely be okay!  However, it all depends on the actually amount you were over the limit I'd say. Don't think you'd have a leg to stand on if you were caught overtaking on the same road at 100mph!

Common sense is a big factor required as yes if you were going 100mph+ to overtake then thats a bit excessive, as the only reason I could see that kind of speed being needed to overtake is if they were doing say 60 in a 70 and if that was the case then I wouldn't even bother to even entertain the idea of overtaking. instead I would sit there swearing at them but make it look like I singing along to the radio  :lol

Cagers who lean into left hand bends, presumably to counter g-force, but have not yet worked out that it is unnecessary as they can't lean into right handers.


Oh............ and brake pedal dabbers


Agrees when I started driving a car as a young man I used to try to lean into left handers, thinking it would somehow help, but in fact you become less stable as a body in the car as you are fighting a g force that is natural and inline wi.th what you are doing, and that in its self unsettles you and makes you feel as if the car is going to tip over. Flop against the drivers door and it's a much more stable feeling. In fact it is the exact opposite to what you would imagine.

I very, very, nearly slowed it down to a complete halt and was going to have serious words with the twat but I was late for home and still had things to do en route.
It eventually opened upto two lanes and he pulled out to take me but I just opened her up and the goon had to go back into lane one

Several angles to this:


There's Euro cars where the drivers simply don't give a fuck so the lights are just aiming the wrong way.....somewhere over there, at something other than the road.


The one up one down, as if someone's punched their car and made it boss eyed.


The blatant "I'm going to blind you!!!" where both lights are to make sure a plane can see them, so as not to accidentally land on them.


All of which does make you wonder what previous incident has occurred to cause any of these irregularities, as you'd think they would generally fail an MOT if tested correctly?


I'm still insanely jealous when i get totally blinded by an awesome looking headlight approaching me, which puts both of mine to shame.......then a 125 scooter goes past me. How could Yamaha get these lights so wrong?

Its not just the nobs who have whacked out skew-wif lights or twats who fit supper bright almost blue lamps (actually not that bothered about bikers ) because they mostly only have one light and compared to a car there is just no need to fit super bright lights to a car.
What I have noticed is the likes of Audi and bmw with superbright leds they seem to be pointed down more at the road which is great but when the road is wet you are blinded by the reflection  which is brighter than the headlights, you can also see them coming out from underneath of the car in front.

What gets my goat? People who take things from somewhere and then don't put them back, eg scissors, selotape, tweezers, etc.. People who borrow tools and equipment from you and don't bring them back without you asking for them, but to do that you have to remember who you lent them to months ago. People who cant use roundabouts. People who don't fold over the end of the selotape so you can find the end. People who think is ok to park up at the side of the road, then fling the drivers door open as wide as possible to get out, oh for a landrover with Armco all around it! People who leave the top off the toothpaste. People who put butter in the fridge so its impossible to spread onto bread. Almost all women drivers, absolutely no idea about what is going on around them (sorry, but there you go) . Motorway roadworks with 50mph camera enforced limits with no one working on them.

What gets my goat? People who take things from somewhere and then don't put them back, eg scissors, selotape, tweezers, etc.. People who borrow tools and equipment from you and don't bring them back without you asking for them, but to do that you have to remember who you lent them to months ago. People who cant use roundabouts. People who don't fold over the end of the selotape so you can find the end. People who think is ok to park up at the side of the road, then fling the drivers door open as wide as possible to get out, oh for a landrover with Armco all around it! People who leave the top off the toothpaste. People who put butter in the fridge so its impossible to spread onto bread. Almost all women drivers, absolutely no idea about what is going on around them (sorry, but there you go) . Motorway roadworks with 50mph camera enforced limits with no one working on them.

I've got to stop, I can feel my blood pressure going up.


I hope I don't get reincarnated as you Billy, because I would come back as nearly the same person as I already am.
My kids and wife drive me mad, I purchase all the useful stuff that you mention and keep it in the cupboard in my home office, so I know where it is when I want it and knowing that I have it, no panic.
BUT Who the f--k has taken my sellotape, glue stick, postage stamps, ruler, tape measure, stapler, hole punch, pencil rubber, you can replace any of the former with almost anything else you might happen upon in a home office cupboard. Why Oh Why?  can't people put things back after they borrow them. :'( :grumble

Ha ha ha!
I love it Dude it's not just me then that is an old nag bag about tht sort of shit.
The only trouble is with me hiding things away is that I forget where the foc i have hidden them, and the end product is exactly the same as if some one takes them from my cupboard, I don't have them. :'(


I was up at my mate Terry's (Wild Plum) house this afternoon when he got a phone call on his mobile about PPI, he grinned at me and tapped his ear then switches his phone to speakerphone.
I nearly wet myself, man that guy thinks so fast on his feet.
He said to the girl what do you want to know? she said just a few things, do you have a bank account, Terry said yes its a 'Sandyair' or something like that the trouble is I don't have a very good memory. The girls said that's alright Sir I sure I can help, she than asked if he had any other bank accounts like Nat West or Barclay, Terry said sorry what was it you were ringing up about? she reminded him it was about PPi, Oh! yes he said what was it you asked? she said about your bank accounts Sir, also do you get benefits of any kind. Terry said benefits no,  but I think my wife, no my carer does to help look after me. What was it you were ringing up about again my memory is really bad, well I think it is, how can I help you, what do you want said Terry, the girl then asked if she could talk to the carer Terry said no because she is in hospital, Oh I'm really sorry to hear that said the girl, Terry said thank you but it is my fault really because I pushed her down stairs because she kept asking me questions and I got confused and then I get really angry 'CLICK' and she was gone.

I could hardly contain myself at that point I really wished the was such thing as a Tena Man pads with leak proof wings, tears were streaming down my face.
I really wish I could think on my feet like Wild Plum does.


He come out with so many funny things that you wonder what the foc is going on inside his head.

He was the first one i ever heard the Loaf of Bread joke from years ago now, he said to me Hey! Tommy I was shopping with her in doors yesterday in Tesco and I saw a loaf of bread with your name on it, but when I looked again I saw it said Thick Cut.  :eek

First off what the FOC are you doing with tweezers and secondly the only joy I get in life (apart from riding my Fazer) is NOT putting things back -just so to piss off Mrs Sharp

So how do you get splinters out of your hands and fingers? Snipe/needle nosed pliers will do the job at a push, but tweezers are better.

If not putting stuff back is one of your only pleasures, I hope Mrs Fazersharp doesn't find out, you could end up eating some weird stuff without knowing if she did.

When you do loads of research on the net for decent sub £100 good comfy easily and quickly fitted pukka short waterproof boots that actually do keep the water out, and find some called prexport Passos which fit the bill brilliantly but then can't find anyone, anywhere who has them in stock in your size 47, and when you finally do, and you pay for them and order them you wait a week and they don't turn up and your feet are getting cold and wet every day in your leaky old bull sons and then you get an e mail saying actually we havnt got them in stock but will send them when we have in two months time...

They're better than the ones that you can't see because a) they're far too small, and b) the foccing blinding DRLs don't dim.

Laundry detergents NO I don't want my clothes to smell of summer meadows -- that's what they smelt of before I washed them and that's the reason I washed them.
Washing up liquid NO, I don't want my plates to smell of lemon - that's what they smelt of before I washed them.

Same as the January rail fair increase they only moan on the day and not when it is announced some months before     

There you go not a peep about it just been announced average 2.3% increase in Jan - no news reporters camped outside train stations asking commuters their opinions, just wait until the day in comes in force, so predictable every year I bet the journos have had it in their diary since Febuary.

Why the foccing hell would they dub the sound ??? I've seen/heard this on many tv/films before and it bugs the shit out of me as there's no reason for it , and the worst is when they dub the sound from a single cylinder 4stroke or 2stroke mx bike on the screen and replace it with a high revving in line 4 sports bike it's just daft
Why can't they just use the sound of the real bike ???

It's not always as straight forward as that, the sound simply wouldn't be as dynamic, the same as a lot of things, which is why they use a Foley Artist to recreate and enhance everyday sounds for cinema and tv purposes just to make things that little bit more exciting and over dramatic for the audience.
Things like fight scenes for example would all look and sound a bit odd if punching sounds weren't added because the actors/stunt people aren't actually hitting each other. Plus some noises either get drowned out during filming or just don't sound as great as they want them to so things like footsteps, slamming doors, smashing glass,etc, will all get a bit of a boost.

Kind of puts my goat getting into perspective really.  Does that also mean you can not taste.

Literally can't smell anything at all, cigarette smoke, solvents, nothing, but the taste part is an odd one.
I have to spice up most of my food with hot stuff like chilli powder or chilli sauce, just to get the sensation of me actually eating something, and I do know right from wrong if something is bad as well.
But the really weird thing is that I CAN taste chocolate??? And I have no explanation why?
The ONLY thing strangely enough, which I s'pose could be a hell of a lot worse.  :lol

I reckon also that sometimes I think I can taste something, but it's just my memory of it kicking in.  :b

The foccing placement of drain covers in the road!!!
I know it's no deliberate but it's almost as if the council went round and thought "hmm where can we put them that will be the most inconvenient to motorcyclists"?

It was slippery enough this morning but to make matters worse the route I had to take to work (because of foccing roadworks) must have had a drain on every corners apex and midway round every roundabout! Yet on all the straights there's wasn't a thing

It's almost like they are trying to kill us off!

High Grip Manhole Covers (http://www.evo.co.uk/news/evonews/224754/new_high_grip_manhole_covers.html) have been around since at least 2008. Some councils have even tried them, but it seems that they're too expensive (or bikers' lives are too cheap) to make it worthwhile putting the damn things out on the roads :(

Got to work yesterday and nearly dropped the bike (again) as my foot slipped, I assumed that was due to the recently painted, shiny concrete floor, gathered my belongings, both feet sliding around like mad, and trudged up into the office. And there I discovered what was lubricating my boots so efficiently had been a thick layer of canine excrement.
Ever had to clean dogshit out of the soles of TCX boots? Crap squishes into that ultra-fine tread pattern with the aim of staying there forever. Took me half an hour with a bottle of bleach and a bogbrush borrowed from one of the work loos. And then I took the brush and bleach down to the basement carpark and decontaminated the footrests, brake and gear levers... and the surrounding area which looked like Mr Hanky had paid a visit.
So, it's probably been listed here before, but what Gets My Goat is: dog owners who let their mutts shit anywhere. :grumble

I'm with you on that one Fazerider.
Some owners know how to shovel cans full of Pedigree Chum in one end but not know how to deal with the stuff that emulates from the other end.


I have a small grassed area outside my house and for some reason someone, who I have not yet managed to catch, appears to take their dog to that patch every day and allow it to shit then walk or drive off and leave it there, The shit that is, not the dog. :lol  he! he!
But rest assured I will catch them, and will probably end up getting bitten by their dog.  :'(

Got to work yesterday and nearly dropped the bike (again) as my foot slipped, I assumed that was due to the recently painted, shiny concrete floor, gathered my belongings, both feet sliding around like mad, and trudged up into the office. And there I discovered what was lubricating my boots so efficiently had been a thick layer of canine excrement.
Ever had to clean dogshit out of the soles of TCX boots? Crap squishes into that ultra-fine tread pattern with the aim of staying there forever. Took me half an hour with a bottle of bleach and a bogbrush borrowed from one of the work loos. And then I took the brush and bleach down to the basement carpark and decontaminated the footrests, brake and gear levers... and the surrounding area which looked like Mr Hanky had paid a visit.
So, it's probably been listed here before, but what Gets My Goat is: dog owners who let their mutts shit anywhere. :grumble


I'm with you on that one Fazerider.
Some owners know how to shovel cans full of Pedigree Chum in one end but not know how to deal with the stuff that emulates from the other end.


I have a small grassed area outside my house and for some reason someone, who I have not yet managed to catch, appears to take their dog to that patch every day and allow it to shit then walk or drive off and leave it there, The shit that is, not the dog. :lol  he! he!
But rest assured I will catch them, and will probably end up getting bitten by their dog.  :'(
Follow them after and post the poop in their letterbox or smear it over their car windscreen or door handles
I'm a dog owner and it really pisses me off when people don't pick up their poop.
Although the other night me and the mrs took the dog out over the park it was pitch black and we've an all black dog we saw she was pooping but it was a bit away from us and by the time we got there couldn't see it despite 10 minutes with a torch and phone lights, when we got home it turned out the mrs was stood in it that's why we couldn't find it  :lol  took her 20 minutes of gagging to clean her boots while I loudly pissed myself laughing

I agree though it would make me gag try to clean dog shit off my shoe, mind you cat shit is just as bad, that is why I have trained my cat not to shit in my garden, they learn very quickly when reminded by a 22 pellet from a Webley Raider. :lol

Yup a real gent would have done that but where's the fun in that  :lol  plus she would have pissed herself laughing at me gagging while I was being a gentleman so discretion was the better part of valour.
My neighbour has 6 ( yes  6 ) cats and they shit everywhere except her garden, especially the old Victorian sink the mrs put as a planter thingy in the front garden they think its a poop tray and crap on her plants or squash them when they squat . I suggested putting camouflaged wooden spikes or skewers in there so they get a surprise when they squat but she won't let me, she wouldn't let me get a Webley raider or equivalent either  :rolleyes

I almost think I would rather people did NOT pick up the dog doo because that way hopefully I can see it and walk around it, in my book its not enough to scrape it up leaving a shitty smudge that you cannot see but will still walk in and then all over your house.
Dog walkers should also be made to spray disinfectant on the area and also spray a white circle around the area that would last for a week or so.

The neighbour is actually ok ( just a bit cat mad ) and it's a bit hard to train a cat to crap in its own garden unfortunately and there are so many other cats around you can't know who's it is although I think the mrs has secretly done that a few times although she won't admit it  :rolleyes

I really don't mind if people just join the forum just to sell their stuff, as long as its relevant to the site, e.g. Fazer stuff. Especially if we get a chance to get a bargain directly without having to battle with people on ebay. Would we really be bothered if someone joined up to sell a pair of good condition Gen 1 faring infills for £20, or a complete set of downpipes with working EXUP for £50? The people who join-to-sell are probably just getting rid of stuff they have ended up with and have no interest in joining in with discussions etc for a bike they haven't got. I think its jolly nice of them to give us the opportunity to buy them first.
Obviously its a bit different if they are just selling their X-Box, a Mk 5 escort 1.3 bonus or a knackered mini moto.

I do often wonder if kids are taught how to cross roads these days, it was drummed into us as kids yet all i tend to see is kids staring you out or slowing down deliberately to take the piss.
Dropping a gear and taking aim tends to wipe the smirk rapidly of their faces but in my day we were taught to be polite and look left and right before even contemplating crossing.

Last time i went around a row of cars queuing like that O went on the cheveron side and got a 6 inch nail in my tryre for my efforts, I avoid doing that now, as the area is not used you get all kinds of shit washed in there.

I just don't think that a bit (lot) of rain is enough reason to run out into the road to nearly get yourself killed, and worse still, mess my bike up, 'cos either way you're on a loser as far as i'm concerned.
I was barely moving luckily but he hit me full on from the side. If i'd have hit the deck i would not have been a happy man.  :(

I am not talking about overtaking on chevrons, jsut tucking into a chevron area at a junction to not block cars going straight on.  Such as this:

rather than:

I find most people do tuck in, but you get the odd ones who don't...  I know you shouldn't really go on chevrons, SINNER!!

Title: Re: Today's "What Gets My Goat"
Post by: fazersharp on 11 January 2017, 01:02:38 PM
Yep cheverons are there to separate traffic and you should not go in them, in your picture scenario its not so bad but the chevrons are used in all kinds of road situations, and its all well and good your first car doing it but the next one will still black the traffic if the first car is still there.
And you will get a puncture sooner or later.
I go my 6inch nail from overtaking stationary traffic that had a very long thin chevron area on the right in between two pedestrian refuges, whih is why the chevrons were there to protect the pedestrian refuge

Property law in England


I have my apartment up for sale it was only on the market for a week. Two people enter into a bidding war and on the advice of the estate I accepted the higher offer as the buyer offered full asking price and no chain involved. The buyer insisted that I take the property off the market as he was a cash buyer and wanted to fast track the sale. So we agreed to do this. I get a phone call yesterday afternoon they have decided not to proceed. We are one month in to the process, fecking livid.
It is really time the law was changed.
In Spain and I think in France it works like this, you make an offer and if accepted the buyer puts down 10% deposit, you then have 10 days in which to change your mind. If after that date you change your mind you forfeit the 10%, also if the seller pulls out you have to pay the other party 10%. I believe in Scotland they have a sealed bid system and when an offer is accepted it is also binding. At least this is supposed to stop gazumping but still not perfect. Selling and buying property has to be one of the most stressful things in life.

Post by: BBROWN1664 on 11 January 2017, 06:05:37 PM
:agree

Your thoughts about the French process are not too far off. The deposit is variable but once an offer is accepted it is binding. The downside to the French process is it takes about 4 months even as a cash buyer to complete.

You are very hopeful-I know quite a few drivers who never bother to check tyres(condition& pressure),fluid levels etc, so to expect them to check their lights are working is a bit optimistic.Manufacturers dont help by making it nigh on impossible to access said bulbs -some cars are particularly bad in this respect requiring removal of all sorts of stuff.
Was riding in fog/misty conditions last Sunday & lost count of the dickheads without adequate lights showing(DRLs give an illumination to dashboard on some cars). Then you get the idiots who put their high intensity rear foglights on at the first drop of rain!

Agree with the previous post concerning the difficulty of replacing bulbs. I have a Renault Captur (ok no jokes) it is a cracking wee car. My dear wife 9sic)noticed as I attempted to reverse over her that the reversing light was not working.
Tried to change it , Well how is this for clever engineering consulted the owners manual, Take car to dealers it more or less says. I did doit myself in the end as the dealer wanted £55.00 for labour costs as they have to remove the rear panels and bumper to access the light fittings. Feck that did it myself in the end and it did take me over an hour to do, okay now I know what is involved could do it in 1/2 the time but what a stupid design.

I think that's a feature on all modern Renault.  The old shape Megan was famous for having the hardest to replace headlight bulbs of any road going car. They blamed it on Euro Ncap safety saying their cars were designed to be safer rather than easy to work on.
Funny seeing as the VW golf managed the same safety rating and all you had to do was pop the bonnet and unscrew the bulb from rear of the headlight.

1. Jack up BOTH front wheels

3. Remove BOTH wheel arch liners
4. Remove front bumper
5 remove headlight
6 change bulb
7. put it all back together again.

2003 diesel Laguna you only have to remove the battery for the nearside bulb. But when you replace the battery you have to enter the radio code and calibrate the electric windows.

Speaking about headlights and what gets my goat - I was at my squash club yesterday, went on my Honda, rode there in the light and by the time I'd played it was dark. Started bike and ...... no headlight. It's about 15 minutes to ride home mostly B roads then a couple of miles of A. So dilema, I could ride it or I could push it or I could walk back and collect it the next day. Club is a bit out in the sticks so bus is not an option. Decided to ride it. That's all well and good but pretty much every driver flashed their lights at me and yes, it did get my goat! It's not for want of maintenance, my bikes and van are extremely carefully looked after, it just decided to give up for that journey.


I know I know, I shouldn't have ridden home but, realistically, what would you have done?


Frustratingly I've checked headlight, fuses, relay and switch today and can't find the fault!

The £300 307 was a 2003 model 1.6 petrol 5 speed, leccy windows and working air con with 103000 miles on it, oh yes and 12 months MOT. It drove perfectly apart from it being a Peugeot, but it had an emissions warning on the display. It never made any difference to the drive. I paid more than £300 for a car that was in a lot worse state 30 years ago. We only bought it as a temporary car while we were finding the wifes new car. Sold the Peugeot after 6 weeks for £300 to a very grateful buyer.

As much as I hate the more modern Peugeots, I couldn't believe the value for money, I mean, a reliable car with a full MOT and working air con for £300.

A lorry wrote off her 110k mileage Clio in Dec and she got weighed in a grand off the insurance less £250 Excess and got a £28 refund off the remaining on her insurance premium as this one is cheaper to insure.
The owners were emigrating and just wanted the money donated to charity.
Now that's what I call a bargain  :lol

She's loving it , drives nicer than her 54 plate Clio , she's got a couple of grand to get a new car but changed her mind after driving this one, its tatty on the outside, car park dints and that but then she's not bothered about parking it and worried it'll get scratched.
Weirdly it's got all the extras but not remote central locking , it's really pissing her off especially when it's raining  :lol

Fitting a remote central locking system is cheap and easy if it has central locking already.

Pick up a kit for under £20 on fleaBay

my gripe is travel insurance for disabled people

looking to get away with the family so asked the DR to say she's fit to travel. He says I can't say that and no Dr would, all I can do is give a statement of fact (print out of medical history) and the Ins. Co. will have to say ye or nay based on that
rang the Ins. Co. (All Clear who are recommended by the Stroke Association) and ask for a quote for the Mrs

it then goes......

we'll save all the details and share them with others, so I ask who are you sharing them with....evasive answer given
I need your details.....I'm not asking for cover so why do you need mine.....answered policy
whats your phone number...... x directory mate you aint getting it
I need the Dr to say in writing she's fit to travel, I explain the Doc won't do that but I have a SOF

well its policy to have the Dr write so we cannot take this on unless.....

I say forget it.......All Clear? stay clear!!!



move onto 2nd Ins Co. (LV) a few questions and quote goes through with no dramas

wanted quotes on going to the US but being told its a non starter, if anyone's been the US can you give me details of Ins Co?

Maddog - Hopefully I am trying to teach my grandmother to suck eggs but........

Almost all insurance companies will exclude pre-existing conditions or events that could even be loosely related to that. Are you sure you want to travel so far, to a country currently run by a muppet, given the health history of your wife?
I can completely understand the desire to go somewhere for a break and for that place to be warm and sunny but if it was me I would look MUCH closer to home just in case there was an issue as the insurance wont cover everything.

Hopefully you will get that break soon though. I'm sure you need it.

It's alright for people that sit at a desk all day and don't have to lift anything heavier than a pencil.

Stupid foccing neighbours  :wall 
For giving the job of replacing their back fence to pikeys who both turned up in clapped out transits registerd in Ireland, took 3 days to do 1 days work and completely focced up my back fence when they had to join their side to mine with a post decided that it was too late to do that and thought that 2 nails and a tin strip 3inches long would do instead and that the resulting 2inch gap my fence now has so that any tom dick or Harry can look into my garden through is alright.
After pointing out to my neighbour when I saw this which unknown to me was after pikey paddy and his stupid side kick had been paid and shot off in a cloud of diesel smoke, he says I'll call them and get them back ........what a surprise the phone number he had for them doesn't work, to which I ask "how did you contact them"? "Oh we didn't they knocked asking if we needed work doing and they were a reasonable price so they started there and then" "did you check their work before paying"I say "no it looked ok from inside the house" he says. Aaaaarrrrrrggggghhhhhhh  :fish
There really is no cure for stooopid and I've got to sort out my side of the fence luckily my house is council and his isn't so they'll come and fix the fence and send him the bill for the lot  :deal

Banks don't get me started, well okay then. How about this. I moved from Spain about a year ago to France. I had to keep my Spanish bank account open as I still had a few bills to pay and also some funds to come in from the sale of the villa.
After all transactions were completed I tried to close the account. I tried emailing my local branch, No they said you need to call into the branch to close the account. I now live 1000kms away that is not feasible just close the account, NO you need to call in. Then they started to charge for managing the account. I contacted the head office (Banco Sabadell) explaining I wanted to close the account. Okay but you will need to call into your branch to close the account. But I live 1000kms away. Yes okay we understand, but you will need to call into your branch to close the account ffs. I contacted my Branch again by phone this time. If I let the account lie dormant will it be closed after say a year, NO it will remain open. Okay how about we run the balance down and then close the account, No and if you fail to maintain funds in the account it will go into arrears and as you do not have an overdraft facility we can charge you 29% per day interest against the increasing debt. I had about €300 in the account. I went down to Spain in November went to the ATM at the branch pulled the lot out and then went into close the account. It was worth the trip as obviously when they pulled the details up and I signed the forms to close the account they then presented me with a demand for €14.75 admin fee for closing the account. I advised then to re arrange this well known phrase off and fuck.

I did get a letter from the manager apoligising for the inconveince of having to travel all that way, but he said it was out of their hands as it was policy from the head office. He did however say that if I ever returned to Spain thy did hope I would make Banco Sabadell my bank of choice lol

I'm forever correcting reporters spelling,i find it quite insulting sometimes when they get words so very wrong.
The thing i don't get though is how it even happens? If i misspell a word on my laptop then it tells me by putting a red squiggly line under it. Not only that, but you'd think you'd go back over and check your own work first before releasing it to millions of people to see anyway? I know i certainly would.
It really is just lazy and sloppy work.


On that note, i just read a story about some poor sod who got hit by a car that's wrecked his life, and on the headline it was a BMW, then in the main story it's turned into a Mercedes.

Knobend council ground workers that have decided that it's gonna take the 4 weeks to dig up then re tarmac the 4 bus stops on the road around my cul de sac and in the process have covered the entire road (my only exit in both directions) with various gravel and mud debris, making it neigh on impossible to ride down. My front end slipped twice already today and that was thankfully only at about 10mph.
 I wouldn't mind but I'm gonna have this for a month because the lazy tossers only wanna work from 7am till lunchtime
I can't work out how they are making such a mess given they aren't even digging up the road, yet still manage to cover it all in shit.

I bet it's not the council, I bet it's Amey. They seem to have the road repair contracts for most of the country. And they're bloody useless.

 I've had to do battle with my council about the state of the roads. They resurfaced a road half a mile from my house about 4 years ago and it's fallen to pieces. So they came along and patched some of the holes, sometimes even stopping the repair halfway along a rut! Feckwits. They resurfaced the road outside my house. OK it needed doing but not as much as the bit of road half a mile away (same road). But apparently they can't be proactive and do the worst bit first. They are "working on being proactive". This same company underspent their budget by 4 million pounds the other year. Enough to feed the Calais camp for an entire year. Incompetant twats.

Getting four seasons in one day, got up this morning jumped on the bike for a  blast wall to wall sunshine, an hour into the ride dark clouds and the heavens opened stuck in the middle of nowhere fecking drenched . Rain stops and sun comes back out. Wind starts to pick up like really scary shit and
more dark clouds and suddenly hailstones nearly the size of golf balls fecking sore. hide in a shop door way and this French  twat says you cannot stay there you must move on, I think the look on my face told him his wishes were not going to be full filled. They stopped and the sun comes out again. I arrive back in my local village and the Gendarmes pull me over and check my ID  and look the bike over. Perfect day out.

in west cumbria they are replacing expansion joints on a bridge (the little gaps at each end)
its going to cost £500,000 and take nine weeks to cut out to strips of tarmac rebolt in plates and retarmac
they have 30mph average speed cameras at the bridge but only for 100yds before you get there each side
then no-one accelerates to the NSL once they get to the signs - thank god bikes are slim and the cameras are forward facing :evil

Myopic, geriatric, deaf, blind, arthritic stupid old people that shouldn't be on the road.

Nipped up to the shop at lunchtime to grab some milk and having pulled into the car park behind someone, they decided that they wanted the space that they were now alongside. Instead of pulling further forwards and reversing in, they put the car in reverse and pulled straight back into my front bumper. she was about 6 feet in front of me when we initially stopped but as soon as I saw the reversing lights come on I was sounding the horn. Didn't make a blind bit of difference, she just kept coming. Her excuse? She's deaf. Didn't stop her hearing her son on the phone when she called him for the insurance details or me talking to here though.
I suggested she needs her eyes checked as she obviously didn't see the bloody great Audi behind her. Made her think a bit though when I suggested she was better off that it was my car rather than the young mum pushing the buggy that it could have been that she also wouldn't have seen!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've had 3 major occasions where cars that have started cutting across me have completely ignored the air horn that is now fully pressed on sounding like a British Rail train, yet they've carried on regardless putting me in serious danger before i've had to take emergency measures to avoid me being wiped out.
I never ever considered them being deaf before, i just thought they were evil cnuts?
