    Small victories

    As a flip side to the Pet Peeves thread, how about things that you find really satisfying?

    I'll kick off wth a couple:

    When someone tries to be a smart arse skipping the queue of traffic and then nobody lets them in.

    Getting through the traffic lights before they change.

    When a know-it-all gets proven wrong about something.

    When your petrol is just about out but you reckon you can still get to wherever you're going without filling up and you're right.

    When I buy something and the Mrs says "you'll never use that" and 2 years later the need for said implement arises.
    When we're on holiday and the same Mrs says "it's that way" and I disagree and it turns out I'm right.
    When someone complains in the taxi that we're going a different way from the way they normally go and they say "it normally costs 12, I'm not paying anymore " and I get there and there's only 10 on the meter.
    Great thread, I could go on all day with these.

    There was a guy who flew past me on willowbrae road a while back. I knew the police were further up the road as I had just come from that direction. I beeped the horn to try and alert him to slow down. He gave me the finger.
    I gave him a big smile as I passed him being booked by the police.

    Definitely the 2 traffic related ones in the OP, as well as going somewhere you know if usually a nightmare to park, and someone parked right at the entrance is leaving as you arrive.

    Also love seeing someone trying to skip the queue in traffic get stranded in the wrong lane.

    Finding a tenner in an old coat you haven't worn for a while.

    Thinking you have had the last beer, biscuit, bag of crisps etc then finding one left when you go to check.

    Scanning something at the supermarket and it being cheaper than you thought.

    Finding beer at the back of the fridge you'd forgotten about.

    Agree with the cars being left stranded but I'll not mention the Maybury as I know Lord Burberry will be raging.

    When you receive a complaint about the way someone has driven a company vehicle, and it was actually you driving. You know the truth and how they have exaggerated and that they were actually in the wrong. Then....you tell them you have dash cam footage of their bad driving...

    When you go to buy something specific, and find it's cheaper than you thought/it was.

    when you get called into the office/meeting and are either expecting an arse kicking or wondering what you've done wrong, to get given a genuine thanks for something you've done.

    I've stopped doing that at the maybury now mate. I only used to do it when I had a passenger in the back. Now I'm coming back in empty I'm not in any hurry.

    - When you think you've lost your wallet and that magic moment when find it in another pocket.

    - When you get a phone call and you expect it to be somebody you don't particularly like and its actually an old mate calling out of the blue.

    - When it's absolutely baltic and you climb into the bed and the electric blanket's been on for hours.

    - The first minute in a shower after you've been sweating due to work or exercise.

    - Seeing a winning goal in 90+2.

    - Falling toast landing sticky side up.
    - No fillings required at the 6 monthly dentist check up
    - Getting the last spot for your car on the ferry
    - Going into the bank and there's no queue then a half dozen folk walk in right after you.
    - Finding a parking meter with a half hour left on it.
    - Squeezing just enough toothpaste to brush your teeth out of a tube you thought was empty.
    - Seeing a serial diver getting booked for diving when it really was a penalty.
    - Watching a well-known cheapskate getting landed with the dearest round of the night.

    Unexpected good weather. I was walking up by Scheilhallion last week and the MWIS was forecasting rain and significant windchill. Glorious sunshine most of the day and short sleeves all round was the order of the day. Bliss.

    Somebody sent me their CV this morning with their photo on it

    0002.jpg

    OK so far.

    She then goes on to list "Patisserie" (ie. making cakes) as her main hobby and to clinch the deal, she added this photo being part of one of her uni projects.

    0001.jpg

    Great way to start the day!

    The noise when you pee directly and deliberately into the middle of the water in the toilet bowl after having a few pints :-)

    The louder it is , the more manly I feel
