Wait so because he wouldn't move over when you were in his lane, he is the knob?
I think you have got that the wrong way round. You are the knob for expecting him to move over, sounds like you went for an overtake when there was oncoming traffic.

fortunately when I'm on my motorbike I don't have to put up with any of these knobs. I just undertake or overtake at will, and nothing can out accelerate you, so you can pretty much ride how you want without these dheads having their power over you (by blocking you in or whatever).

In the car I try not to get wound up, and cruise like Mr and Mrs average. And plan further ahead than the competition, thus making sure you're in the right lane as much as poss so you don't get blocked.
not sure why you feel the need to quote me but with no comment of your own.
The thread is one single thing that makes you think "knob"

I quoted your post.

Figure it out yourself.
This made me laugh out loud, there's just no comeback for that onerofl

This. Doesn't matter if there *should* be room, the onus is on you to make sure there *is* room before you start the manoeuvre.

Saying that,

I think they're all in league with TomTom - despite the hold-ups slowing me down and the occasional fast stretches, my old TT720 with no outside interaction still managed to predict virtually the exact time it was going to take for the journey. If it looks like I might make better time, someone in a bunker in Holland sends people out to slow me down so it makes their product look more accurate.
That's funny!

Today, it's me, for apparently driving around with brakes that are OK at town speeds but felt horrible coming to a roundabout from 70 (ish). First on the list of things to do tomorrow morning.

The man riding a bike along a Dorset B-road at 0530 today (so completely dark).

With no lights on.

On the wrong side of the road.

He did at least have a (filthy) reflective jacket on.

I'm glad I was going the same way as him.

Not so much think "knob" but "are you right in the head" Two blokes riding their push bikes on the A63 today (70mph dual carriageway) Ok so it isn't illegal but not very sensible with cars and trucks moving at motorways speeds. Neither of them had any dayglow clothing on either yikes

No, I thought he was a knob for making gestures and flashing his lights. He didn't need to move over (but could have done), there was plenty of room even without him moving over. I just thought his response was a bit excessive considering that. I was partly in my lane, partly in his. But not in a bit he was using, honest. I don't do "get out of my way" overtaking just in case they don't.

What gets me is the number of people who try and advertise a car on Facebook without actually stating what it is, or how much money they want to open the proceedings at. "E36 Coupe, good condition. Offers?" and then they get really shirty when people ask them what engine size it is or offer them lower than they think it is worth (usually double what it is actually worth).
far , far worse than that is when you advertise a car with a price stated and the first question people ask is "whats the lowest you will take for it.." and then refuse to make an offer.
Hmm, see I always plan ahead for that and build in a couple of hundred quid leeway, so when I (invariably) get asked 'what's the lowest' I just tell them £100 more than what I actually want and then maybe let them have £50 more off that if they're trying really hard, meaning I usually get what I wanted, plus £50, and they walk away thinking they're kickass negotiators... Otherwise I just ask them how much money they've got on them. That usually shuts them up if they're not serious.

Cyclist in the dark & rain, dressed head to toe in black with just yellow helmet. Was so lucky I never wiped him out with my trailer.

Not fussed on people typing the forward slashhes before the M, a la //M.

I'm not going to rant about it, I just think it's a bit weird.

Colchester car auctions on Thursday nights. Lots of cars causing a hell of a lot of fumes. So what do I spot?

Yup, a parent with a child on a harness. I mean, how totally inconsiderate is that?

Well done you for thinking of the children, maybe you ought to go to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to tick off any parents there too. Lots of the old racing cars probably still run on leaded fuel so that's even worse.

I think you need to be punched in the sponge, and then have a can of red bull thrown at you, from the window of a 335d (mapped)

That covers some of them.



I'm so sorry.

Contrasted with people driving around in the evening with both front and rear foglights on, blinding everyone around them.

People going onto my side of the road when i'm riding a motorbike and we both have flood water. I can stay within my lane and make it but cars seem to think they can straddle the center line and avoid the icky water while maintaining 40 mph instead of slowing and driving through it.

It's not my fault you can't fit and I only give way to avoid you murdering me.
