why do people with space for 6 cars on a drive insist on REVERSING out onto a main road when they could turn on the drive, or reverse in?

Deaf punters who want to have a conversation with you.

Or deaf punters in the back having a conversation with a fellow punter in the front.

Drives me f***ing mad. ](*,)

That is rather crap.

Longest I've ever waiting at Gatwick or Heathrow is 40 mins from landing.

Got my record time last year at Heathrow. From plane to cab, 21 minutes. :shock: :shock:

My record is 18 minutes At BHX :shock:

worst was 3 hours at Stansted last plane in and they had to wait 2 hours for an emergency technician to come and fix a stuck luggage hold door !!!

Mt worst Gatwick was 2 hours when the plane landed early (04.30) and had to wait till after 06.00 for the baggage handlers to start work !!

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.
