I was reminiscing with an old mate yesterday, talking about our old cars...

Back in the early 80's he used to own a Ford LTD 7 seater estate car, great big Yank thing as he liked everything American. He used to drive around in it with the tyre pressure low so it squealed the tyres on the corners at low speed hehe

One day we pulled up along side a car at the traffic light with two lads in, My mate was driving with the window down, arm on the door, wearing his cowboy hat, smoking a cigar... The lads started to take the mick (they would, he must have looked a right cock!!) It was a Left Hooker so he was right next to their window...

My mate reached down, pulled out a replica hand gun and pointed it straight at them shoot They just screamed and shot off across the lights on red!

We were saying that if that happened today there would be an armed response unit and 20 coppers surrounding your car in minutes!

What have you done in the past you would not get away with today?

Not sure why I said laugh, it was more related to :

Something simple and straightforward needs doing, need to get the right guy in who has gone on the course, got the high vis and can do it with elf n safety in mind.

Instead of, fk it, just crack on and do it. What happens happens.

You never see kids sat in the boot of an estate or hatchback these days. They're missing out.

My mates kids looked at me like I was mad when I pointed to the security around the entrance of Downing Street and told them that I'd walked down there when I was small.

I remember frequently as a kid being put in the boot of cars when going for family outings. They were often not estate cars. sometimes saloons...

...I don't think my family liked me very much frown

My mother is a nurse and told me that when she was training she would routinely get the largest syringe she could find and fill it with water then walk in on a patient and say it was time for their injection. Most people thought it was funny but I expect even then you had an someone who would just moan about not taking their health seriously.

Me too but after seeing the aftermath of a smash yesterday where a huge Tarmac lorry had hit the rear quarter of a Jeep and absolutely decimated it I wouldnt put my kids in the boot of a car.

Smoking a fag in a pub, enjoying a nice pint after work and then driving home.

All within reasonable limits of course. I am not advocating drink driving, just lamenting the demise of common sense with regards to a cheeky pint after work and the ability to partake in a cheeky fag with aforementioned cheeky pint.
