My sister got snarled up in it, she was off up North to visit my mum, it took her two hours to travel 1 mile, they eventually turned everyone around and drove them south on the northbound lane. It took her 1½ hours to get back to Stamford.



thought she lived Deeping ? if so why not go Colsterworth across to Bourne and down ?

just got the vehicle back Wednesday after minor damage to front bumper fixed after someone reversed into it on 28th Dec (George driving)


and today someone else just reversed into it again scratching the bumper :sad: :sad: :sad:

On both occasions driver sounded the horn but the people kept reversing till they hit it because they were reversing without looking where they are going

Some people are just f***ing thick.

Worst examples are mums at schools, and old dears in supermarket car parks.

Idiots who can't understand why I'm picking them up, and/or dropping them off against the wind.

Then bellyaching that they are struggling to get out the car.

Do I care? Do I f***.

I once had a MK3 cavalier rear door wrapped around the front door thanks to the wind.(even after repairs it had weakened the b-pillar that much the door was never the same again.) After that I used to put the child locks on the doors, pain in the backside getting out all the time but was only for the odd windy day! So glad I’ve sliding doors now. I know they can be problematic but, touch wood, never had a problem in 12 years. ( engine cleaner on the rollers now and again and then silicone spray.

She shouldn't have needed to ask, most friends should just be there.

I know this isn't Caroline Flack Online, but this article, from the Metro of all papers, sums up the situation very well.
