People with polluting, stinking log burners.
Care to quantify your quote?

I assume that the old buses you drive are electrically powered?

I thought not.

Proper wood being burned can smell quite nice, in a countryside kind of way. One of our neighbours seems to chuck all kinds of random crap, including plastic, on theirs though, which absolutely stinks.
I burn proper wood - not the random ste you can buy.

Anyone who burns plastic, paper etc deserves to get abuse. I also burn smokeless coal which emits nothing but a pleasant smell.

Far less pollution that an old Diesel engined bus.

Every knob on the M27 who thinks it's a single carriageway, middle lane only. Anyone who does it is clearly a Joey Deacon.
You mean they all overcame adversity at a time where people with cerebral palsy were considered mentally disabled yet he managed to publish a book?

Calling him a knob on here? biggrin






My current knob annoyance are people parking in EV spaces.... I don't even have an EV and it's annoying the hell out of me...
The next big parking problem following disabled spaces. Warrents a thread maybe?

That will probably happen in time, when the requirement for spaces increases and IF the car park owner concerned places them nearer to shop for access to the power grid.

On a slight tangent, I once had a friend years ago ask me why I was wearing sunglasses on a winters day. I explained that it was a bright blue day, somehow though in her head she couldn't process "sunglasses" which she associated with summer, and "winter" which was the season that we were in at the time.
I've heard exactly the same, it's like they can't compute that sunglasses can be used away from the two weeks in Spain.
If anything sunglasses are more use in the winter months because the sun is lower in the sky.

People who are still wearing shorts, it's winter you bunch of half wits!!!
i wear shorts in Winter. Mainly because the house is about 35 degrees and if I am only going outside briefly then I am not about to get changed for the benefit of weirdos who have strong feelings either way.
Oh do shut up, not everything posted on here is aimed at you!!! I was referring to several people I saw during Saturday, throughout the whole day, wearing shorts whilst shopping, or just walking around, VERY few of them looked like they'd just come from a gym or had just finished playing football or running!!!
Then your original post should've been "the people I saw this morning......" rather than "People who are still wearing shorts" HTH
Also sitting here in January *still* wearing shorts.

Just let off the throttle and slow down gradually until they get the message,
Or over take you.

Either one is a win for you!
I tried the easing off- only about 5mph drop as I was trying to give a gentle hint ( they did get a free screen wash) but even though they had the opportunity to overtake, the brain dead girl driving didn't take it.

Some people really are just knobs!

Thankfully, she turned off a couple miles down the road. It will probably end badly for her one day.

You can almost imagine the conversation (either in their heads or on the phone to their mate)....less than 10% of their attention on the road ahead,,,,

I had a Tesla in the states, it's a big problem there with EV's parked in the spaces. If you leave it there, after it has finished charging, the costs are punitive. It kind of defeats the object of park it and go for a meal/shopping as you had to return to mov it into a conventional space, which sometimes wasn't there. It could end up a big part of the logistics problem if we want EV penetration into people who can't charge at home or who are away from home for long periods.

Those type of vehicles are a menace on our local roads. With or without BO55 plates.

Ultimate nob points if it’s BO55 MAN on a 10 year old white Range Rover sport. The holy trinity of nobdom.

People who don't use their indicators, particularly on round abouts!!!
I leave for work at 0430, I arrived at a round about around a mile from my home, there's a car approaching from my right and they're positioned as if they're turning right so as to cross the front of my car, but no they swerve left and pass alongside me, fking cretin, I've stopped because a) he wasn't indicating so I had no idea where he's going, b) positioning says stop he's turning right and c) I don't really want my car damaged by a halfwit!!!!

Driving round a single lane one way system in a car park (going in the correct direction). I see a fiesta S driving up the wrong way towards me so I stopped. The fiesta drives up to the front of my car honking its horn for me to move in a confrontational way and waits for me to move. Then points to the side to drive on the pedestrian bit.

I ended up having to move onto the pedestrianised part of the road and let them past to continue in the wrong direction after I pointed out it was a 1 way.

Tbh the truth is, the person in the fiesta has driven up the wrong way of the 1 way and missed the huge arrows (as wide as the lane) that point in the opposite direction they were going. They have seen me stopped as they will be the sort to look 1 foot in front of their bumper only, and not realised I was forced to stop because they were driving up the wrong way, and thought I was just sitting stationary on the "wrong" side of the road.

Think they realised they were wrong as after I let them past he put both his thumbs up and looked a bit sheepish.

EDIT: also thanks for everyone who solved the coffee beans mystery for me. It's nice to know where it started smile
I had some silly woman in a big Porsche Cayenne driving at me when she pulled the wrong way down a one way street, i stop and wind the window down to tell her shes going the wrong way and she screams "WRONG WAY!!!" and speeds off.
