Years back I was driving along the A31 in my FM2, over taking a car when a TYPICAL Tailgate McNoIndicate CANOE CAME RIGHT UP MY rear canoe (nooo!). SO, I drop to 4th and unleash all 240 ponies YEAH BWAAAAWWP.....5 seconds later I notice said Tailgate McNoIndicate is STILL RIGHT UP MY rear canoe, so I pull over to slow lane and it flies past like IM STATIONARY ......V10 M5 DAMMIT!!!!
Lesson learnt - even turbo 5's are slow in a straight line lol.

TRYING TO GET HOME FROM BELFAST. GENUINELY THE EARLIEST I HAVE EVER GOT TO THE AIRPORT FOR A FLIGHT AND THEY BLOODY WELL DELAY IT BY AN HOUR AND A HALF FOR 'OPERATIONAL ISSUES'. NO prarrie canoe SHERLOCK YOU'RE HAVING ISSUES OPERATING, WE HADN'T NOTICED YOU BASTARDS. NORMALLY THIS WOULDN'T BOTHER ME BUT MY 10 MONTH OLD IS GIVING ME GRIEF ABOUT IT. ME! THE DAMN CHEEK OF IT. IF THERE WAS A SINGLE FECKING AIRPORT WORKER ABOUT I'D SHOW THEM WHAT THE LITTLE ONE THINKS OF IT ALL. ARGHHHHHHH!

Not strictly driving-related but deffo car-related...
MY WIFE HAD ANOTHER MOTORIST (I refuse to call Australians 'drivers' - because they're not) PULL OUT OF A SIDE JUNCTION AND WRITE OFF HER CAR. GOOD. I HATED THAT CanoeING 323 ANYWAY.
SO WE HAVE BEEN SHOPPING FOR A NEW CAR FOR HER. WE FIND A 2010 HONDA JIZZ. GOOD CONDITION AND CONVERTED TO LPG (ftw. Will run on air) AS WELL, ACCORDING TO THE ADVERT. PHONE UP THE DEALER. "OH YEAH", HE SAYS, "THIS THING'S PRISTINE. NOT A SCRATCH". HE SAYS HE OPENS AT 9AM. SATURDAY MORNING TOMTOM IS ON FORM AND I RACE IT FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF TO THE DEALER'S DESTINATION, GETTING THERE AT 8.20.
Canoe DOESN'T TURN UP UNTIL 9.40. I'M FUMING ALREADY. HE OPENS UP AND TELLS ME HE DID A DRIVE PAST AT 8.40 BUT I WASN'T HERE SO HE WENT TO THE BANK. HE OPENS UP THE GARAGE AND THERE'S THE JIZZ... MASSIVE CARPARK DINT ON THE DRIVER'S DOOR, PRETTY MUCH THROUGH TO THE METAL. I WALK AROUND IT AND THERE'S A DINT OR SCRATCH ON VIRTUALLY EVERY PANEL. EARS, STEAM. I OPEN THE BOOT. NO LPG SYSTEM. I GO CanoeING THERMONUCLEAR.
"CanoeING LIAR!!" I HISS. "ADVERT SAYS LPG. YOU SAID IT WAS PRISTINE AND NOT A SCRATCH. AND I WAS HERE AT 8.20 AND YOU DEFINITELY DID NOT DRIVE PAST. GET CanoeED YOU Canoe. YOU'RE FULL OF prarrie canoe!!" AND I WALKED AWAY. HE LOOKED LIKE SOMEONE HAD SLAPPED HIM WITH A FISH, HIS JAW WAS ON THE FLOOR.

DID I MISS THE MEMO FROM DVLA OR WHATEVER THE Canoe THEY'RE CALLED THESE DAYS THAT THE LANE DISCIPLINE RULES HAVE BEEN SCRAPPED AND WE ARE ALL TO DRIVE LIKE MORONIC AMERICANS IN THE SAME CanoeING LANE FOREVER AND NEVER MOVE OUT OF THE WAY OF THE BIG WHITE NISSAN THAT WANTS TO COME PAST???!!!
Shout, shout. Let it all out. MX5's is what we're all about.
wannabe: I didn't watch it live but saw some of the highlights - one crash saw a Lotus Elite(?) crashed into and the front end ripped off on the tyre wall, with a 250GTO also smashed up IIRC! Expensive hobby... lol

atlex: After 20 years (with me, but it's 30+ years o) my Teng Socket Set has at last suffered a cracked socket, 14mm, after I used it with an impact wrench - Out of some sense of brand loyalty I've ordered a replacement socket... and yes I have some impact ones.
