The little spidery bds in my house that string strands of web at head level across my doorways in the night, so that when I come down in the morning I get them right in the face. rage

This bloke:

(Tried the pic in a couple of orientations but can't get it right!)




I never park across 2 spaces, I don't moan when people park next to me within 2 feet so I can't open the bloody door and I wouldn't dream of expecting any other road user to make allowances for my car being wide. I choose to drive the thing so if I don't feel safe leaving it somewhere then that's my problem, I just go somewhere else or go back home.

But.

This bloke backs all the way up to me when there are at least 10 other spaces in front of him, this is fine, it's not up to me where he parks.
However, he then opens his boot and starts heaving out a massive boat engine! Teetering between the cars with this bloody thing catching on his boot lid while he's fighting to lift it clear!
The picture was taken after when he came back to get all the other bits out of the back seat.

I mean, if you know your going to be struggling a dirty great boat engine out of your boot would you really choose to back it all the way up the only other car for a 100 bloody yards?

Go to a shopping centre car park late evening
Park away from the busy area
Parked in a bay with no cars nearby for at least 5 bays distance each side
Come back to find an MPV parked right next to me with kids going in and out. Not only going in and out but in and out on the side next to me

I don't get it

Yes Thanks yes

Instead of all the extra street furniture, pretty blue cycle lanes different colour worn out anti slip braking surfaces I wish, I just wish they would completely resurface roads making good the subsided kerbs and sink holes (normally left by utility companies) prior to resurfacing.

And if the councils do have to make good utility companies holes they should charge them.

Lets face it, a smooth surface is better for all road users no matter what mode of transport, it would stop road users having to brake and swerve around holes, adding to more incident risks.

You can add to this the poor condition of much paint on the road. You approach some filter lanes in an area you don't know. Is the left lane straight on and left? You can't tell. At the last moment you decipher a faded left only arrow, you want to go straight on. Everyone to your right is now annoyed beyond reason at you trying to get in their lane. Fresh paint please!

I'm considering getting a motorbike again, but the state of the roads is a major factor putting me off.

Round our way, it's a major factor for my push bike staying in the shed.

EBay, Argos and sellers on eBay!!! If you're selling something and packaging and sending it via post don't just wrap it in plastic and throw it in the post!!! This is the fourth thing I've bought in the last 2 months which has arrived damaged!!!
Are they really all just a bunch of idiots? Do people just accept that the packaging will be crap the the box/object/contents damaged? The mind truly boggles as to what people see as acceptable today!!!!
