  1. Things I Do Like

    I do like booking my practical driving test for August 3rd!! It's in my old home town too (the earliest appointment for my current area would have been September 23rd) which is good as I know it like the back of my hand, and it is a very quiet area... A lot of people avoid taking tests there because it is "too easy" and they then won't be prepared for driving in bigger places, but that isn't an issue for me.
  2. What Have You Learned Today??

    Exactly! That's why I bought the Hyundai in such haste when we sold the Primera (and only had the 405), as I hate relying on just one car - or anything for that matter! Hence why I have multiple vacuum cleaners, televisions, irons, typewriters, computers etc...
  3. Things I Don't Like

    They do, but I don't have one locally!
  4. What Have You Learned Today??

    Indeed Ghana!! Or rather not anymore, seeing as I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole after their cluster today. Good thing we also have the Hyundai, as if the 405 was our only car and we depended on it going through the MOT today then I'd be completely screwed!
  5. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like the inane idiot who took my call to book the 405 in for its MOT today, when I called on Tuesday. His exact words were "we've got a couple of MOTs in the morning so I'll book you in for 1PM", which I agreed to and advised the car would be dropped off just after midday. As my mother was dropping it off whilst I was at work, I called them at 12:30 to advise she was on her way and double check that they'd be able to get it done by the end of the day. The response I got (from a different mechanic to who answered on Tuesday) was "the 405 was booked in for first thing!" Well no it sodding well wasn't, and as a result he didn't have space to fit it in today, and even if he did I wouldn't trust them with it now. Consequently it has now been booked into another local garage for Monday at 9AM. I just hope that this is one of those cases where God stepped in and saved me from being ripped off or something, as the other garage may turn out to be better.
  6. What Have You Learned Today??

    I learned that even with good "word of mouth" reviews, a business cannot necessarily be trusted...
  7. V5 incorrect information

    Exactly, not sure how he ended up paying £25? Just fill it out as you would if changing address and post it off. Changed for free.
  8. Things I Do Like

    I do like the day before pay day, quite possibly the adult version of Christmas Eve!! Shame the money is all spent before it hits the bank though...
  9. Things I Don't Like

    I couldn't agree more! Hence why I use ad blocker. Yes it is bad for the genuine websites/forums that need advertising revenue to operate, but there is just too much junk out there that I have to do it unfortunately.
  10. Things I Don't Like

    Ah well, the card in question doesn't have that. Only my Barclaycard has the wireless symbol shown, but surely I'd have to do something to set it up? Not that I want to!
  11. Spot The Poor Vauxhall!

    I think the time has come when Vauxhall needs to be added to the censored words list...
  12. m.o.t

    Famous last words!! I'm just waiting for a law to come into place where all vehicles over the age of 10 years old will be illegal - full stop. Mark my words, it'll happen.
  13. m.o.t

    VOSA strikes again!! Seriously... As long as the car starts, stops and steers - just give it a pass for God's sake. Personally, I think the drivers are the ones who need yearly safety checks, not the vehicles!
  14. Things I Don't Like

    I normally do shop at Lidl, but it wouldn't have mattered where I went as I don't "do" contactless. No idea how to set it up (or if I even could with my cards?) and it isn't something I'd want to use. I'd rather have the inconvenience of forgetting my PIN than the risk of having it stolen and used.
  15. Things I Don't Like

    I don't like forgetting my PIN again! This time in Tesco with a few groceries. Obviously, I suddenly remembered it 10 seconds after locking the card with three incorrect attempts!!
