    The car chase through the walnut groves towards the end of Dirty Mary, Crazy Larry was good fun too!

    An Irish jioke

    Murphy calls in to see Paddy, who is sitting at home with a broken leg, Paddy says "Me feet are freezin' mate, can you nip upstairs an get me slippers?" "No bother" says Murphy and goes upstairs where he finds Paddy's two stunning 19 year old twin daughters sitting on the bed. "Yer Da's just sent me up tae shag the pair of yous" he tells the girls. "Away yersel' ye fuckin' liar" "I'll prove it to you" Murphy says. He shouts down the stairs "Paddy, the both of 'em?" "Of course the two of em" comes teh reply "What's the use of fookin one?"

    Any British Leyland fans here?

    Didn't realise that, I only knew it shared many characteristics with the later 1800 so I wrongly assumed it was FWD. Hideous bloody thing whatever it's drive train!

    I had an SD1 Vitesse, a rather eye-watering green colour (Triton I think it was) Never could be classed as fast, more of a lazy mile muncher. nice car to drive though. My pal's dad had a Austin 3.0 Saloon, it was quickly dropped from the BL line up shortly after they were formed, it was a hideous land barge of a thing and apart from the Mini it was technically the forerunner of all of BL's later transverse abortions!
  5. Hi Dan, I agree wholeheartedly, but when the police themselves say they are powerless to do anything / not interested it kind of makes you question the system! If I had been pootling along in the outside lane and causing an obstruction to other road users I could understand the undertaking manouver, but this guy was just doing it out of badness (there was no other traffic in the outside lane and he could easily have passed us safely) and before anyone says he's not allowed in the outside lane, the M90 is only a glorified duel-carriageway, not a three-lane motorway. He was breaking the speed limit and driving in a manner likely to endanger life i.e. dangerously, but the police were not interested, so where do we go from there?
  6. Towing a caravan this past Sunday (OK, I know that's me thrown out of the Forum!) and doing 55-60 mph along the inside lane of the M90 I was actually undertaken on the hard shoulder by an artic doing around 70, who proceeded to give me a blast of his air horns for good measure. and scared the crap out of my wife. She called the police to report him with details of the company and the registration of the vehicle only to be told there was nothing they could or would do and suggested we contact the company directly! So, if we can't report dangerous driving to the police what is the point of encouraging private individuals to be vigilante?

    Spotted in Southend-on-Sea today

    Or it's been taken in as a 'scrappage scheme' trade in. During the last fiasco I used to pass a scrappage scheme holding yard and the classics being traded to be terminally broken was heartbreaking.

    Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - please read

    The test kit has everything you need including specific instructions, but basically you poo on a piece of tissue then scrape a small amount off with a little lolly stick, then smear the sample onto a small cardboard envelope which you then seal. You do it over five consecutive days then send it away in a sealed envelope. It sounds gross, but it's really no worse than wiping your backside and as has been said before, the consequences of not getting tested in time can be far, far worse than the ignominy of testing yourself.

    OAP released on no charge

    The family and friends of the criminal (because that's what he was) have been putting up tributes and memoria opposite the OAP's house, calling the old boy a scumbag and lowlife and demanding a public apology for his actions! Happily some more public spirited people have been taking the flowers and cards down and in one case redistributing them to the local cemetery.

    Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - please read

    Dave, thank you for raising this, like Pigeonpost I get a test kit every two years which I do myself and send off, not a great experience, but effective. I mentioned it to a few friends and was astounded at the number of people who reacted with horror at the thought of taking their own stool sample! Surely far better a few moments unpleasantness in the privacy of your own bathroom than the situation the OP and others have found themselves in?

    Too true to be funny.......

    Hello, Gordon's Pizza? No sir, it's Google's Pizza. Who? Google bought the pizza store. Ok - I’d like to place an order. The usual sir? How do you know what my usual is? According to caller ID, you always order a 12-slice with extra cheese, sausage & thick crust. Yes, that's it. May I suggest that you order an 8-slice with ricotta & tomato instead? No, I hate vegetables. But your cholesterol is not good. How do you know? Through the subscribers guide, we have the results of your blood tests for the last 7 years. Maybe so, but I don’t want that – anyway, I already take medicine for high cholesterol. But you haven’t taken the medicine regularly. 4 months ago you purchased a box of only 30 tablets from Boots online. I bought more from another chemist. It's not showing on your credit card sir. I paid cash. But according to your bank statement you did not withdraw any cash. I have another source of cash. That isn't showing on your tax form, unless you got it from an undeclared income. Oh go shove your pizza up your arse! I'm sick of Google, Facebook, Twitter & WhatsApp. I'm going to an island without internet, where there’s no mobile network, and no one to spy on me. I understand sir............ but you’ll need to renew your PASSPORT, it expired 5 weeks ago.

    I think you are taking the right attitude, life is too short, move on and realise it is very much their loss. On another note, the advice on here is correct, but only to an extent, they cannot give you a bad reference in writing, but no-one can censor what they could say in a phone call, so treat any reference to this job in an interview with a shrug and "We all make mistakes, it wasn't the job I hoped it would be so I'm moving on" Both my current and previous employers have notes in the company handbook which state they will not give references of any sort, good or bad, merely confirm the role and duration of employment.

    How to get off with dangerous driving at 106mph!

    The suggestion that the police can act illegally and/or irresponsibly fills me with shock and horror.....not! The wife of a senior officer in a certain traffic division local to where I live boasted in public that her husband encouraged her to claim £4,000 for whiplash for an accident to a car she wasn't even in.
