Lesson learned, never drink drive, could have been a hell of a lot worse.
True, you could still be driving a Vauxhall
Actually on the drink driving front, there is a guy that works for me that got done for it a while back, he thought the course you had to do was only a day course.... Imagine the feeling he had when he found out he'd left it too late to complete the course before the deadline and as a result he was going to face another 6 months of not driving!!
Things I don't like? How expensive transits are and I need a crewcab!
I don't like it when you're waiting to turn right out of a junction and on the primary road where there is traffic people insist on going nose to tail and actually not even thinking of letting you out... 'Why? It's not even like I'm going to be ahead of you because I'm going the other way!'
When I said about people hopping out of cars in disabled spots, the amazing thing is, they often tend to have a blue badge... Of course the danger is you end up a bit like that scene in "me, myself and Irene" where the bloke is actually picking up someone frail or something, but the majority of the time it's either someone who doesn't really need that parking space (even if they are disabled) or much like the empty car seat, they've got the blue badge because they often ferry their granny around but she's no where to be seen...
I find the array of 'disabilities' incredible, when it boils down to the disabled spaces however, I think they should be purely for people who:
1. Have difficulty walking, or
2. Cannot walk (spaces for wheelchairs).
I get sick of seeing people in their brand spanking cars pull up to a disabled spot and someone hop out and near somersault their way into the shop!
The other irritant I have is when you see people park in the parent and child parking space with a car seat in the back but no child to be seen anywhere... Makes me want to beat them with a stick!
Things I don't like? The people who are jumping on the anti Clarkson bandwagon saying things like "he thinks he's invincible and can say what he wants"
I am seriously offended by this for infinite reasons -
Firstly I have no doubt the people saying the above would also jump on the 'we should have free speech' bandwagon provided it fits their views... So they're hypocritical!
Secondly - where are these people when certain groups march UK streets holding placards about killing our soldiers or our soldiers going to hell? So those groups can say that, but Clarkson can't make some 'flippant' comment that he probably has no personal backing about?
Don't get me wrong, if he hit someone then I guess the BBC can't be seen to do nothing, but there are far more pressing people to be peeved at than Mr C...
Just read the gambling section, having worked in a bookies I can tell you it's rare that anyone wins... Certain customers are 'monitored' generally because of the number of bets they place or the volume of cash they bet and generally these guys are the 'big guns' they study the games/races/dogs etcetc, they float around the break even mark, some slightly above some slightly below, but they all think they're well ahead...
I'd say that if next time you're forced into two bays because of another driver taking 2 bays then take a photo to show the other car to sort of say "well look you geniearses, I didn't have much of a choice!"
