    Christmas decorations and the total and utter fannies who have them up from early November. Christmas is now becoming a three month "religious festival". There are a few houses in my wee town who have had theirs up for more than a week now. This is nothing to do with Christmas, Christianity or even religion but just a big look at me. Knobheeds.

    The little *******s who unsuccessfully tried to bump their taxi fare down at drylaw tonight. When they finally paid up they through a brick at the window as I was driving off. Luckily it hit the top of tge door or I would have ended up seriously injured. Still faced with the bill to get the damage fixed. Thatís the last straw for me, no one should have to deal with that **** at work.
    Feeling pretty low right now.

    Cheers b. Iím thinking of selling up and moving on to something different. I donít normally let this kind of thing bother me, but when I got out and seen how close the brick came to my window, it hit home how lucky I was.
    Im having a few beers tonight, and Iím looking forward to the game tomorrow. These idiots arenít worth ruining my weekend over.
    Hope your well mate.

    As a bar owner I once knew said "People are sc*m."

    Do you know what annoys me the most is that the first 2 taxi drivers refused to take them. I hate judging people on how they look. Some of the nicest people Iíve met at work have looked a wee bit dodgy. I can guarantee that most of the young guys from down that way are decent honest people. Itís ****s like the 3 I had today that spoil it for everyone.

    Could you install cameras or something, to put off/help identify, w4nkers of this type in the future?

    The youngsters donít care mate. They had already got out and (eventually) paid me, so I have got no come backs unless the camera catches them in the act.

    You know what annoys me. Incidents like these could kick off a campaign that says no taxis will go to that area of town. This means that a few erchies cause pain and tribulation for everyone. You can apply that to the new alcohol law, the 20mph speed limits, the list is endless. We all are forced to take the punishment due solely to the dregs.

    Maybe worth going to the papers with that, or the taxi drivers union if there is one. Get it out there that the area needs better policing to make it safer for all.

    I remember there being a thread on here about the young guys down there. I think it was silverhibee that started it. They donít care, and they know that thereís pretty much no comeback for whatever they do.
    Itís probably the final straw for me, but I still believe that most people in that area are decent people.

    Jakey *******s. Itís crap when something like that happens but is it really the final straw?

    Coincidentally, I had my side window put in a few days ago by kids throwing rocks. No repair bills for me and I was getting paid while I was sitting about waiting for back-up to arrive. Food for thought brer.

    Packed it in over 3 years ago and don't miss it at all. Far too many incidents in my last couple of years.

    Youíre in a good position. You can always rent the cab out so if you decide the new job isnít for you, thereís something to go back to.

    R

    Washing machine door lock delay.

    You hear the washing machine beeping to say it has finished and nip through thinking I'll quickly empty this.
    You try the door but it doesn't open. You wait 2 seconds and try again but it still doesn't open.
    You try again 5 seconds later thinking it will open now , but no.
    This time you decide to stay bent over , wait 2 seconds and nearly go radge when it still doesn't open.

    Then you hear a click. Try again and it opens but now I can't be arsed emptying it so I'll just shut the door and pretend i didn't hear it

    Agreed, SG it's a PITA.

    Folk who say things like 'there's nothing but football, football, football on TV' or 'it's all just reality rubbish'.

    Most people have at least 15-20 channels these days. Add to that the various streaming services and other media platforms available and I'd suggest if you can't find anything other than football and reality shows then you aren't looking very hard
    I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women,. Suddenly, uncritically giving no thought to the pain it could bring. - Nick Hornby

    Folk who sit in the outside of a motorway at 60 mile an hour. Nowhere near overtaking anyone and won't move in. Oh but there's a car a mile ahead doing 59 mph so I'd better stay in the outside lane.

    The twats in McDonalds who canny get orders right, ask for a Beef feast and get a chicken burger, ask for an additional large fries and they forget that too. Ask for no ice in my juice (its cold enough) and it comes rammed full of the stuff!
