  1. I hope you're kidding Matt! I swear if someone substituted anything on my plate for a courgette I'd beat them to within an inch of their life with it!!! Yuuuck! Snozzcumbers!
  2. Easy when it's prewired ¬_¬ GRRR Welcome :D
  3. Don't claim for an injury if you don't have an injury. I disagree with the comment saying to claim... If the car is damaged then of course claim for that, but don't start adding "oh my back/neck/ballsack aches".... At the end of the day, yes it's included in our premiums, however if they are forever drained then the premiums will increase, because those NOT being claimed are what makes the money for the insurance companies (amongst everything else)... so the more money claimed, they less they make, therefore the more they charge.... it's simple.. I think I'm a regular on here, I don't get your "crap cars" comment... maybe I missed something...
  4. I find it strange actually..there was a time between jobs where I was 'unemployed'... Fortunately I lived with m&d and I lead a fairly inexpensive lifestyle... I never went on jobs seekers (probably should have looking back, could have had a nice holiday), but I found it thoroughly depressing... If I'd had enough cash to go travelling then I'd have done that and enjoyed that, but just being at home or 'around the place' is a dull existence.... No point getting up early as you just drag the day out .. so 7 becomes 8, then 9, then 10 and before you know it, you actually start waking up in the afternoon... Of course this means you're wide awake at night and under stimulated, so you end up playing games or watching movies and it gets later and later... I believe I actually went more or less nocturnal at one point... Not everyone does that... But I certainly did, I even started offering myself to offices for free, for experience and just general stuff.... That really helped open up doors and it was rarely free after a stint, I'd receive a small cheque... Work has it bonus'! Holiday of course is far more important!
  5. And of course, the local ripspeed distributor >.< I'd like to bet the owners work there...
  6. Very hot there Clive but not quite at the ford garage.... think further down the car park towards the other end... in fact with discounts for employees these two may even work there....
  7. Can't say I agree with it being added to income tax... if it is done in a % scale at least. I don't see why people who are perhaps putting in more overtime or paid more etc should pay more than those not.... Especially when you consider that some of these people may not even be using the road much...
  8. Four hours!! Yikes, best of luck Jamie. Just try and relax on the train if you can.... takes the stress out of worrying what everyone else is doing!
  9. A couple of losers that can't park.... Can anyone guess what was nearby?
  10. Dunno about that Jamie, they did the road up by me fairly recently, might have been your tax that paid for it
  11. So really you just switched from diesel to ST.....'s a different category of change...
  12. Hahaha, had visions of that lethal weapon toilet scene.... "A few days I'm stuck"
  13. Punishable by death Ghana! That and people that put plates or other crockery in the sink with debris on/in them such as tea bags, or tissues or indeed lumps of food....
