My wallet is too small to hold the 50 notes that I like to carry with me in case I see something I fancy, and I can't find a place that will do a same-day chrome wrap for my aventador

Getting a ticking off for saving the day because I purchased an item on my works credit card instead of using the new purchasing system.

If it wasn't for work I would be 5 stone lighter and a lot happier

Default Gripe of the day - What is yours?

People who indicated to go round ****ing pinch points!!! And people who indicate to go round parked cars!! What, you think I didn't see it?! You assumed I'd think you were going to plough straight into the ****ing back of it?! I know you're going to go round it you ****ing dumb ****!

To add to that, people who do the above next to a right turn!! If I'm coming the other way, I'll often stop close enough to the obstacle so they can't get past and gesture them to turn off.

Quite often they will turn their indicator off but sometimes they gesture that they're going forwards so I pull up beside and say "well don't ****ing indicate then!"


Not a gripe of the day but hey ho.

Default Gripe of the day - What is yours?

People who slow down by 10 mph and / or refuse to change lanes just because they're driving through a tunnel. Where's the sign that says "Lose 10moh and don't EVER change lanes?"

People who make taking a simple roundabout or corner look like tackling advanced brain surgery.

Drivers that don't pay attention to pedestrians when turning corners

High way code rule 170

watch out for pedestrians crossing a road into which you are turning. If they have started to cross they have priority, so give way

And drivers who dont understand box junctions

174
Box junctions. These have criss-cross yellow lines painted on the road (see ‘Road markings’). You MUST NOT enter the box until your exit road or lane is clear. However, you may enter the box and wait when you want to turn right, and are only stopped from doing so by oncoming traffic, or by other vehicles waiting to turn right. At signalled roundabouts you MUST NOT enter the box unless you can cross over it completely without stopping.
Law TSRGD regs 10(1) & 29(2)
