They all result in a demand for money if you are stopped in the wrong place you fussy bugger.

Not if it's for a few minutes, depending on the signs, markings, and ze rules.

Given how keen Pataweyo is to flout them to hit his targets, I think we should at least know that there's no such thing as a prohibition on "parking".

Dogs on trains, the Nottingham to Birmingham train to be precise. It was hot today, a lady got on the train at Beeston and it was already full. I was sat right by the toilet as I never had a reservation and it was the only seat I could find, I did not want to sit in the wheel chair bay. Woman with dog gets on. 10 minutes into the journey the dog does a dump on the train and falls asleep.

It just stank, woman never cleared it up, not a train guard in site, train was delayed for an hour as well.

Not the dog's fault.
Owner is a minging cunt.
You should have flushed her head down the toilet
OR
Forced her head out the window so another passing train smashed it off, the lazy slag.


A bad day was it dear! Laughing

Dump on the dog then bag it and bin it.

I bought my YBR from CMC bikes in Stoke last August - went past today on the way to fetch the pootle from its mot to find they had done a runner - empty shop all still signed up etc with just an apology on their facebook page - disappointed. I was going to take the bike back to them in July for it's mot. I have to say I am not trusting of some of Stokes other bike dealers so will have to rethink.

And

Applying for jobs - getting turned down because "you passed the criteria but someone was a closer fit for our profile" "please contact us back and we will give you feedback" so I send a polite email requesting feedback. Nothing so far - not a dickybird.

Disappointed in big companies and Stoke on Trent as an area is a fail.

But then again, I hate dog owners who don't pick up their dog's ploppings. If I have to do it, so does everybody else.

And on a train ... in an enclosed space ... I just can't believe someone would have the brass balls to sit there and ignore it after their dog did that. I said it once and I'll say it again: minging /lazy Mad

I'm quite cross that two days have gone past and nothing has happened to grind my gears.

But its entirely possible that the events surrounding the towing of the Prius were SO IMPOSSIBLY INFURIATING that I used up this month's portion of gear-grinding on that alone.

No joy from Woburn, didn't really expect there would be.
They weren't shitty about it, just said that if I'd had a service history from them Triumph may have sorted it as a good will gesture.

I suppose that's to be expected.

The bike is what, 8 years old now? It shouldn't go like that but it's in the 'wear and tear' bracket with that sort of age as far as they are concerned.

I think you're right.
It's a bit of a faff to get the ignition assembly off but its fairly straightforward and something to document for the workshop section.
Oddly, the bloke at Woburn said that the ignition assembly had changed part numbers for some reason.
They'd never admit the reason for the change of course.

Because their wiring diagram didn't match the wiring in the switch.

Three drugged up, pissed up chavs at the pub trying to get a rise out of me while I was sitting quietly minding my
own business having a quiet pint after my daily walk with Gracie. I'm old enough and long enough in the tooth to
recognise and not take on 3 coked up wankstains by myself, not least because my dog might get hurt or possibly attack
them. But it has pissed me off a bit. Part of me wanted to put her away safely in the van and return with a tyre lever
and see if they wanted to continue digging me out. Black Eye Looks like I'll be taking it out on my drumkit later.
They were arguing amongst themselves at the bar and one threw a small tin of vaseline at the other which missed and
hit the wall a few centimetres from my face. I really had to hold in my rage. One was reasonably apologetic for the
actions of the other two, but as I left they were making barking sounds trying to wind the dog (and me) up.
Just got off the phone to my mate the landlord warning him to not serve them much more and to keep an eye on
them, he told me they came in after I left and tried to order 15 Jaegerbombs, which he refused to serve them
and he sent them on their way.

If you have to drill the security bolts out and need some (non-security) replacements I have some left over from when I did mine. Fowlers unsurprisingly wanted a lot for replacements which I might have ordered, but they wanted something like 3 for a tiny washer I was missing, which it turns out I didn't need with the replacement bolts.

EDIT: I might also have my ignition wiring somewhere but I don't know if it'll be any good, I stripped the wires so I could start the bike.

had a bit of an incident like this sunday (bit of a long post coming up )

sat minding my own when knobber comes over all chatty
drinking the dodgy cider my local sells then starts drinking rum then whiskey gin and finally port (all this time telling me he is a squaddie and only home for a bit) his missus had already told us he wasn't and was a spanner monkey at Halfords
anyway he also kept trying to shake my hand left handed and limp wristed so I ended up telling him to shake my hand properly or not at all
he then started talking to a local old bloke who he decided was a veteran and trying to buy him drinks
then buggered off up the local shop for some fags and comes back after losing his card his missus went off and found it up the road

starts picking fights with his missus then starts accusing the barstaff of theft and putting too many drinks through when he cant pay for any more as his card was now being declined
one local who is an ex special forces bloke got shoved as he was trying to calm him down
so took him outside the pub twatted him once and left him outside out cold
police turned up and took him away thinking he was just too pissed up and must have fallen over Laughing Laughing Laughing

And they don't stop jabbering for the entire journey.

I used to find it funny on the train when commuting cause they would talk really loudly until they lost signal for whatever reason then they would SHOUT as if that would force the words through the magic bone to their opposite number on the other end.
