It certainly had a taste all of its own. I could not drink tea with regular flat top milk till I got married. Weaned myself off stera. Not sure if it was because Long Clawson dairy didn't carry stera.

Idiots who abuse the 999 system. The clown who called it over a 3p dispute at a filling station is a prime example. Unfortunately being a prize moron is not an offence but wasting police time is. Take their details and then prosecute and fine them heavily to get the message over that you do notrisk putting othets at risk because of your own stupidity.

Drivers who don’t indicate at roundabouts so you presume they are going straight on and then turn left so you could have gone. Those who pull in behind you to let an ambulance/fire engine through and then try to pass when it has gone past.the idiot who blocked my sisters car in a parking space and then watched her trying to get out, waited until she had managed to get out and was waiting to get on Road and then came to move his car and “help” her.

Some people's lack of humour... (white people stereotyping never gets axed).

Filling Stations that sell groceries ! I was in Lymington Hants last Sunday, and in rather a hurry to be on the road home. I filled up at the Co-op and then had to wait about ten minutes while a woman bought the week's groceries. One till open, and about a dozen frustrated motorists twiddling their thumbs.

I worked for MCColls until a few months ago. They acquired a load of the smaller co-op convenience stores this year. They can be very expensive. Feel sorry for the staff.

The latest Amazon advert where the question is asked "What era would you like to live in?". Nothing wrong with that but era is pronounced "error"". Didn't these people learn to speak the Queens English at school or are we dealing with aliens?

The idiot who was reversing their car on the inside lane of the M6! I was driving south through the roadworks in the early hours of Sunday amd making steady progress within the speed limit. In front I saw hazard lights flashing so I pulled out into the middle lane in plenty of time/distance feeling sorry for the poor driver who had broken down. As I got closer no more sympathy as I saw reversing lights on and the car was reversing! A shame I do not have a dashcam. Checking the online news when I got home there was no report of an accident on that part of the motorway and I was hugely relieved. Stupidity like that puts lives at risk.

People who are still letting off fireworks on the 11 November.

 

Might that be something to do with the Armistice?

 

Although commemorations of things like this are somewhat different in France, there is often a liberal use of firecrackers. It might be something to do with the lack of a Guy Fawkes type excuse for irresponsible behaviour, although there is Bastille Day.

There were still sporadic ones around 12.30 here last night ! Ludicrous.

Debris and detritus from yet another weekend of totally unnecessary fireworks. Last week, I cleared rocket sticks, shattered plastic, cardboard tubes and other rubbish from the back lawn. This morning as I was filling the bird feeders, I picked up a big smelly plastic tube like a bazooka shell. It was like Passcheandale again at midnight last night.

Give it a rest you Basford chav louts

Years ago I parked my car in a road near Hockly when I got back to it those around me had blocked me in. I got in and shunted back and forth and gradually there was a group of young lads who I thought were going to help me get out without bumping either car. But no they stood and watched me probably thinking she's a woman she'll never get out. Well I did and blow me the lads stood there applauding. So I waved and went on my way.
