Perth drivers who sit in the outside lane and refuse to move over! If my UK friends think UK drivers are bad, trying driving in Perth, Western Australia!

fab thread... :D

well, here are a couple:

1) let's talk about cold calling...

i guess nobody loves that, but it's gotten worse with technology!

i get about five calls a week telling me:
- i've recently had a car crash and i was not at fault, so i'm eligible to claim compensation... well, if i had had such a crash i would know, would't i? in a parallel universe perhaps?
- i've contracted a loan in the last three years and have been abused, so... i'm eligible to claim compensation... well, not me dude!
- my credit card contract was unfair, so i'm... etc.
- etc.
- etc.

well, not pleasant, but it gets worse!

until recently, SOMEONE was calling... so, depending on your mood you could:
- have a chat if the guy / gal was nice and you had time to, after all, everybody needs a job and they were doing their best to sell you something...,
- take the p**s, if the guy / gal was facetious,
- tell them to foxtrot-oscar if the guy / gal was boring or aggressive.

now... A MACHINE is calling you! WTF! they are not even acknowledging you as a human being... A MACHINE is (boringly) telling you about all the stuff that never happened to you!


2) (junk) emails asking me if i want to:
- enhance my sex performance... am good, thanks! (unless she tells me otherwise...)
- satisfy her every night... oh, FFS, not EVERY night!
- meet / f**k someone in my neighborhood... er, rather NOT in my neighborhood, thanks!
- want to buy (fake) viagra, or whatever they've invented that looks like it but is more expensive, usually shipped from places i cannot find on the map!
- and on you go...

PLEASE, leave me alone!

3) perhaps more conventional: scum unduly parking on parking spots reserved for disabled people. although it is, unfortunately, common these days, it still gets me really mad... and usually gets them a big sticker on the windshield saying "If you want my parking spot, you can have my f*****g wheelchair!"

that's it for today...

man, i feel better!!! :lol:
