People using made up words that they have no sodding clue about.

99.9999% of the time I'd agree with you. However.....

Near me there is a "gangsta-type" family with a large selection of cars. These tend to be parked in a haphazard fashion, often causing problems for other people. When asked to move them (to allow other people access) the response is, at best, a grunt and a "look". Their cars have been keyed several times (Not by me I hasten to add).

I don't agree with it. I wouldn't do it. But sometimes acting like a cock elicits a cock-like response.

Drove to aberdeen today for my 2 yearly medical. The nurse came out a.d ushered me through. She was absolutely stunning and very friendly. Her top was puffing out a bit so I asked her 'when are you expecting?'. She wasn't pregnant. So today I realised I am a knob.

People that have stupidly bright headlight conversions so even their sidelights dazzle oncoming traffic. Especially when they're combined with LED day driving strips from eBay or Halfrauds.

And what did you do?
Looked out and saw some chap hovering against the car, initially thinking it was attempted vandalism or worse. When I loudly enquired as to his intentions he bolted off down the street, it wasn't until I went out for a look I noticed what he'd actually been doing.

By the time I'd jumped in the piss-free car and went for a look I couldn't spot him, which in retrospect was probably a good thing, as an assault charge over something ultimately trivial wouldn't have done anyone any favours.

I'm relieved (pun intended...) there was no damage a jetwash can't fix - but it further reinforces the belief that the local students who can't quietly handle their drinks are knobs of the highest order.

When did the car thing start? It always used to be through the letter box, or stood in a flowerbed trying to hit a gnome/birdbath/other object.

Just last night, its a total one off incident in the time I've lived here, thus far. I've got no reason to suspect there's a calculated intention behind it, other than drunkenness.

It's not high crime area, it just has a high density of student accommodations - there's been a few on neighbouring streets who've woken up with wheeliebins and traffic cones on their cars, but I've never had a problem previously.

hehe I meant in general. Traditionally it was letterboxes. Always in the paper back home, trying to get pubs/clubs shut down because drunk people were peeing through letterboxes, or in front gardens.

But that's twice today I've seen posts saying someone has gone against a car.

It also begs the question. Why are we tuned to pee up against something. Despite being in full view people will pee against a pole rather than open space.

You're quite right though, I think we're intrinsically disposed to aim at things mid flow. Slightly off topic, but Schipol Airport put little vinyl targets on the inside of their urinals and found that it reduced splashing outside the bowl by 80%, so there's method to the madness. hehe

You're like some kind of Internet comedy genius.

I've never seen grammar being pulled up on a forum before. Wow, amazing... Keep up the good work, I'll look out for any future nuggets of wisdom.
