    Grumpy old buggers thread

    Its time to let to it out
    grumpy-old-men.jpg

    Don't let your blood pressure rise. Share it with your caring mates

    To start the ball rolling

    The slow lane
    1. With 3 lanes or so on many roads in a 80, 100 or 110 kph zones. Why do people doing 40kph sit in the right hand lane.
    2. On the flip side when turning right (legally) from the right hand lane on multi lane road do some behind you feel your rudely delaying their drive


    At the school zone
    1. Double parking at the font gate- walk people
    2. Driving around school kids while on mobile phone

    Blood pressure back to 120/80. Try it and see if it works for you

    People not letting others merge when lanes on roads end thinking they’re entitled to be wedged right under the bumper of the car in front to prevent anything bigger than a small fly from getting in between them...

    So I'm at the servo counter in Sydney, card in hand, actually putting my pin number in because it was more than $100.
    Ignoring the fact that I'm being served, an old bloke pushes in front of me, slaps cash on the counter, says "Number 6" and holds out his hand for change.
    Seriously?

    Idiots who think it's their God given rite to race up the left lane, as it is ending, and expect me to prop 50 tonnes, so they can carry on weaving in and out of the traffic, to gain twenty metres.

    S'funny, we haven't met Steve, so my mental picture of you was one or both of the geezers portrayed in post#1 . No really.



    Ian was the other one.

    I guess I am not old enough but does it count when I feel like one?

    A quote from the bbc tv series "grumpy old men": "traffic calming, there is nothing calming I find about them!"

    Cheers,
    -P

    This is a pretty good likeness of Steve, that's a fishing rod, not a walking stick.
