Levels Of Pissed-Offness High!!!!

just been to get petrol, people took aaaages to turn the pump on, i had to actually go in and tell them to turn the damn thing on, then got shouted at by the bloke behind me for "taking my F*"&£n time" he quickly got told to shove it up his arse before i ram it down his throat! levels begin!!

then to tesco n got a nice bottle of wine among other things, stuck it in a bag and the bottle went straight through the bottom and smashed on the floor as soon as it wasn't over the till!!! levels rise!

driving from tesco to town got stuck behind every doddering old biddy out there! levels are creepin up! then when i get to town the only carpark thats not full is the NCP multistory that costs £2 at least and i was only parkin for 10 mins!!! levels go up more! then on the way out the car park i curbed a F*"&£n wheel on the stupid high curb they have which makes the already sharp narrow bend even worse!!! levels of pissed-offness gettin VERY high now!!

then, turn into my road behind a Corsa, he indicated left and starts to pull in as if he was gonna park up, so i start to pull out to go round him, then whilst still indicating LEFT he turns RIGHT across the road causing me to slam on and narrowly missed hitting him!!! i was so SO close to just gettin out and hitting him!! bloody IDIOT!!!!

aaaannnnnddd breath!! rant over! time for a brew!

I think all those people are the real elves. They come out every Christmas season to confound everything around them. Did you realize, Tom, that if you'd have bought another bottle of wine to replace the first, it would have broken the same way? :D

....and why is it that days like this just build and build....its never just one annoyance that can be shrugged off.

Blood pressure off the scale with red face and ears burning !!

Sounds like you need a punch bag at home (or maybe we should have a rant page on the forum :megaphone: :duelwield: :bottom: ...Nick??) :)

....or maybe not.... :nono:

exactly right mine does, i got it sorted as soon as i got home. I hate driving around with lights out and hate it even worse when i get blinded by people who drive with their main beams offline so i have to squint to see past them of a night
