We stopped at KFC on the way back up and I put the coke in the passenger footwell so as to keep my driving nice and smooth (and also 'cos the Punto has an annoying lack of cupholders!)
Damn thing still fell over as we were rounding the last corner before getting home though
LMAO! I suspect it all came out in my car

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Idiot dealerships, letting me drive away and then 4 days later the finance gets rejected (due to them giving wrong info!) so now I have to ring around trying to find some other way to pay for this car or I'll have to give it back!
Hulk smash!

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

People who don't overtake lorries. Grr!
i was happily driving from Spalding to peterborough today. The roads are dead straight, there is no traffic.I'm happily zipping along.

I come across an M and S lorry and a queue of 8 cars. All happily doing 40mph. Fine, I come up to the back of the queue, pull out and overtake the lot in one hit. Didn't even need to exceed the speed limit. It was really that quiet. Anyway, I pull in and then find the car that was just behind the lorry on my rear bumper. Bearing in mind, it is still utterly empty the other way. Said numpty is no more than 2 car lengths behind, riding the white lines to look past. There is nothing coming at all, nothing! Does he overtake me, nope, just stays there. Anyway,after a few miles of this, I pull off the road into a parking spot, he passes, I fiddle with the stereo and then pull out again. Only to find said numb nut doing 40 on the now empty road in front of me! Luckily, next roundabout he went one way and I took the scenic route home. Why oh why don't the police spend time catching people who cannot drive!

The car was a nearly new Vauxhall Insignia, the driver was I think maybe 10 years old, typical wet behind ears prat in a company car wear a stupidly large knotted tie and 'I'm too cool for words shades'. (Yes, thats how close he was to my bumper!)

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

some people are happy to go at 40mph at 60s.

but when i follow any vehicle (and dont plan on overtaking) i keep enough room to house cars with breaking distance about 3 times.
i find this shows i dont plan on overtaking but to follow, and yet allow others to attempt in jumps.
if someone overtakes me and then has no plan i get up their ass and overtake.
often with a mate giving the finger

They arrest people for driving recklessly, but that doesn't seem to extend to people driving brain dead very often.

Re: What's made you grumpy today?

Got unfairly close to having a serious crack at starting the car today, but one of the hoses on the fuel filter started pissing fuel after we used air to force some fuel through the system an we didn't have enough 8mm hose to replace it, so now it has to wait until tomorrow.

However hopes are high, battery sounds strong, spark plugs work and the starter doesn't sound weak. May need a new fuel pump but that's almost too easy
