lets see if we can get this to a hundred pages as something similar has on another forum I occasionally frequent (hobby related) the rules are simple one post per day per forum member about what has been the MOST annoying thing to happen on the day but unlimited replies.

Mine today was one of the towns most useful rat runs closed because the council won't fix a spring that spews water out from under the footpath near the top. The road ices up then someone crashes a car and the police close the road today someone managed to demolish a wall ! The water board dug the road up 4 times before they worked out it wasn't actually a leaking water main :roll:

the membership of Cloc was out in force today ! except that these days with 4 lanes to choose from they pick lane 3 making life very awkward for those trying to drive at a steady 70 !!!!! Still with the M25 practically empty I could use the inside lane to get past them :badgrin:

Then see if they own up to having knackered the window while they freeze :lol:
