Warm weather + weekend = Odd jobs. I can already hear lawns being mowed and drills!

I know they don't have to move over and it's my responsibility to check over my shoulder but seriously, either fall back to let me on, speed up or move to the right-hand lane. It only adds to insult when said driver continues on a slow 50mph and doesn't even need to get off at the next upcoming junction so why be so irritating and not let other drivers on?
They don't move because they are blissfully unaware of any wrong doing. My friend, you have encountered a clogger. There are sooo many of them on the roads.
The roads certainly account for most of this thread...

A few more:

- Some idiot today parked at the side of the road...at the junction of a roundabout :roll:

- Another idiot on the industrial estate thrashing the crap out of a Seat Leon and taking a corner so fast that it looked like he was going to tip the car. These people think they are petrol heads but they do all this speeding on the estate where the roads are full of huge holes/craters. Would serve them right if their suspension or something broke as they were going along.

The old man who lives behind me who refuses to cut down or at least trim the four MASSIVE trees he has at the back of his garden. They block my light, affect my grass (some of it's bone dry and dying) and are pushing my fences down at the back.

Why are some old people so stubborn?

Nervous brakers.
You drive along behind them (at a safe distance) and the brake lights come on at any sign of oncoming traffic/ tight spaces to navigate.
And those who brake at the last second. You can slow down by changing down gears, don't you know...

Very annoying. Was stuck behind somebody today who was doing 20 in a 30 zone and still touching their brakes for speed cameras :roll:

The news that they are turning the snug, the room that hosted many computer clubs among other things into a stair case.
Its not like the Lass was a big pub, its not like it dont already have a stair case going upstiars.

Its like they really dont give a toss

My cousins. They are loads richer than us and ignorant as hell, their mum (my aunty) is my dad's older sister. We have phoned them a few times over the last few months to get their addresses, partners and kids names for the wedding, do they get back to us? Yeah if only. Sending the invites out in a few weeks and if they don't pull their fingers out they can whistle

If you don't like them, why invite them? I cut loads of family from my wedding. I don't feel remotely bad about it.
