    Not really a victory but a nice moment. My son and I met up with an uncle I haven't seen for ages last week at the Montrose game and sat next to him at his season seat in the east. He was taking a photo of the 3 of us just as Simon Murray scored the first. He's just sent it to me and it captures a moment you couldn't manufacture

    Anticipating the obstruction ahead well before the cars in front of you and changing lanes and sailing past them as they all realise too late.

    Or just encountering them at the next busy junction and edging ahead of them.

    While searching in the house for something I'd lost, I found two other items lost earlier that I'd forgotten all about. To cap it all, I then found what I was originally looking for.
    Last Friday was a triple small victories day.

    Double bonus, they've gained a lot against the since you bought them.

    Back in the days when reg plates changed on 1st August, we were driving down to Calais to catch a ferry, in rain of biblical proportions. I've never seen anything like it before or since - even lorry drivers were parked up on the hard shoulder of the motorway as conditions were so dangerous. We were taking it really easy when this complete bell end went flying past us, well over the speed limit, in a brand new Bentley that he'd obviously just picked up that morning. Five miles down the motorway, there's a brand new Bentley lying half way up the banking on its roof. Ordinarily I would take no pleasure in such an accident, but on that occasion it seemed like he got what was coming to him, and it was just a miracle he didn't take any other vehicles out with him. Total moron 😠

    Walking intentionally slowly across a green man to force a "these rules don't apply to me" cyclist (is there any other kind?) to slow to a stop instead of zooming through like they own the road.

    Even better when the car in front of you has driven past the car about to leave and misses out, not nice but very satisfying.

    Also could go in pet peeves if you're in the car that missed out.

    Waking up in the night thinking it's time to get up but seeing you still have a couple of hours.

    When you hit an almighty downpour just as your car approaches a swarm of lycra-lingeried cyclists miles from shelter.
    That's when you know there really is a God.

    When some idiot flashes their lights at you because they think you've got your full beam on, and you then put your full beam on and it almost blinds them.

    LED headlights per chance? Getting more popular in cars these days but I find them quite "blue" and intense when they are close by.
    Maybe it's my cataracts (insert Mr Magoo smiley face)

    No I've just got normal old fashioned lights. I agree about some of these LED lights though.

    2-0 down and coming back to win 3-2 at snakes and ladders with your 6 year old.
    Get in there.

    Like it - but I don't recommend trying that in Amsterdam. I don't think it would be a win, as they don't seem to bother slowing down!

    When the guy alongside you is revving his engine and edging forward at a red light and you just know he wants to beat you off the mark. Then a cyclist appears and positions themselves right in front of him, the lights change and you gracefully pull away as he is stuck behind the cyclist.

    Or if the car next to you at lights starts the revving challenge, join in and get him up to a fever pitch. when the lights change quietly slip in to 1st and drive off slowly as he screams away like a total maniac, hopefully within the view of some rozzers.
