Default Re: Gripe of the day - What is yours?

Turning right at a roundabout from the left hand lane so that you cut up everybody correctly using the right hand lane as they attempt to leave, whilst you meander on, in your own merry world. Oblivious to those braking and blowing their horns, as your blinkers prevent you from looking anywhere but forward.

(I have a friend who decides which lane to enter a roundabout, by which is the smallest. Not what direction do I wish to take.)

Started training again and have been on the protein shakes.
5 days later and I need a dump every hour! My insides are melting!!!

My office also stinks for some strange reason, although that's more likely everyone elses gripe of the day

Have to agree with this one, plus the addition of no indicator usage so you're guessing their intentions.

It seems to happen so often that I wondered if they had changed the highway code and it was me that was wrong.

Perhaps you should check your highway code.

if you go round a car without leaving your lane no need to indicate, If you leave your lane you're supposed to.

What about opposite junctions? I know full well they deserve a slap.
