Mine went down as I bought a set of clippers from Asda.

Had two haircuts out of them so I'm in profit.

Yipeeeeeeee. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

What I should have added was taxi/PH drivers not letting me out/giving way at junctions.

it will become ultra competitive out there until a good number give it it up and the trade shrinks a bit. That will entail all sorts of unfriendliness from competitors

To be fair, they're only human [-(

Or did you mean the seagulls rather than the people? :badgrin:

Personally, I prefer the seagulls to the people who feed them. Ultimately, any problems caused by the former are the fault of the latter [-(

Well if you were following her *that* closely for 2 miles at 50mph maybe she was just being bloody minded and wouldn't pull in :badgrin:

And maybe she was distracted by you in her rearview mirror, thus causing her to swerve :badgrin: :badgrin:
