I’ve used that once when I was over that side of town and stuck. The guy in charge was a diamond, couldn’t have been more helpful.


Was that the old guy? He’s been brilliant any time I’ve went in. He really knows his stuff.

Wood pigeons.

 

Every.

Single. 

Day.....I slow down for these dumb feckin birds at the start of my morning commute.

Any other bird is off long before I get near with my car but these arseholes just amble about in the middle of the street with not a care in the world. They could do this on the pavement, the house gardens, the trees but no....middle of the road, waddling about looking for god knows what like an American tourist in town during the fringe.

 

I'm done slowing for them now. My commute will now play a significant role in their evolution in Penicuik. They'll need to be more aware and quicker off the block otherwise I'm running these pricks over.

And I don't care about my car. I'm happy to leave their skull imprints and feathers stuck to the front of my motor like some sort of Aves Mad Max.

 

I never hit one with my car today. 

I didnt slow down either.

 

Pretty sure one of them is telling his pals how close he came to dying today though.

Dagger Is Back

The demise of mirror, signal, manoeuvre. These days some folks, usually driving a Discovery or some bollocks like that, simply jump to stage 2 of the process.

 

See it regularly just after the roundabout on Calder Road heading down on to the M8. Morons sitting in the second lane, heading down the slip road to the M8, thinking they just have to indicate and force the drivers driving correctly in the inside lane to take evasive action.

 

Cockwombles the lot of them

Fake news.

 

Discoveries, like BMWs, Mercs and Lexuses, don't come with indicators.

Variable speed limits on and around the Queensferry Crossing appear solely designed to create congestion on the approach to and on the bridge. Huge empty spaces southbound beyond the bridge.

 

And I might have got flashed by the speed camera doing 65 past a 50 sign on the aforementioned bridge approach yesterday. Ach well, first 3 points for 20 years.

nope, they know they rarely need them so only custom build them. no point in paying for storage for an item that is rarely used

Was it one of the long, thin cameras? If so then they are still in testing. Have been for a few years, so they flash but no fines are issued.

Yeah, looked wider than the usual style of camera.

 

Mounted on the left side of the gantry, at the side of the signs that show the variable speed limit? Found this undated article online: https://www.safetycameras.gov.scot/news-publications/news/hadecs-camera-testing-underway/

 

Would be a relief if they are still in testing and not issuing fines (as well as a lesson learned!).

Yeah, 100% still in testing. You can check the location of active cameras on the traffic scotland website. Also tells you the location of any mobile cameras.

It's true that a known fault with some BMW's is the wiring on the rear indicators, the connector burns out fairly often so those BMW drivers not indicating are actually  just being cautions and preventing an electrical fire in their car B)

I applaud such safe driving, although perhaps would suggest that you buy a Japanese car next time - much better electrics than those cheap German toys. On an unrelated note, got a lovely Toyota Avensis that I'm open to offers for. 

 

I also like the fact that brave Audi drivers are part of a proximity sensor testing programme whereby they need to get as close to the rear bumper of the car in front, often at high-speed, in order to provide data.

Don't think you could ever accuse a taxi driver of stopping at half a donut.

I discovered yesterday that a co-worker was being a clipe during lockdown last year when we were on furlough and a redundancy process was going on. On the phone regularly to senior management giving opinions on who should be made redundant and making recommendations that some roles could be made part time, and of course bigging up his own position. This behaviour also included telling them there was a WhatsApp group and reporting on what was being said in it. Luckily for him he’s since left for another job or I’d be having a word with him. All the while lying to the rest of us and pretending he was “ one of the lads”. Utterly disgusting behaviour and the sign of a total self centred *****.

Sat in waiting on an ASDA delivery as I'm currently self isolating (Close contact so just waiting on a negative). Had booked it between 12-4pm as its cheaper and I didn't have much planned anyway believe it or not. Got barely anything in so it was a big shop including all the ingredients for a big Lamb roast for tonight. 5pm comes along and still no show. Phone ASDA to find out apparently the driver couldn't find my street and I should have been contacted.  Order cancelled and no shopping. I am getting a £5 voucher apparently though.

Me: Do you want anything while I’m in the kitchen?

 

Wife: No, I’m fine thanks.

 

Come back through, sit down and open a bar of tablet.

 

Wife: Give me a bit.

 

😡😡😡

 

She does this shit all the time. She could’ve had her own :raging:

Tesco with their club card prices. I have a club card but don't always remember to take it everywhere I go. Sometimes you pass a Tesco and decide to get something you really need. You spot something on offer and then notice you need to have the card with you to get the reduction.

You can get a key fob mini  clubcard. Or keep your receipt and go to customer services the next time you’re in (assuming you didn’t forget your clubcard, phone and keys on that occasion😂). 

 

By that time he's paid full price. I don't think he's as fussed about the points
