    Angry bad things come in three

    yesterday morning i started off with taking the dogs out at 6, all good. then about 8 i took my nan and her sister to my aunts, this is where my good times stopped!!! as some of you know ive recently spent a bit of harx earned money on the car: new vxr wheels and tyres, new brakes, irmy spoiler, and a few other bits and bobs.
    anyway these were all fitted friday and saturday.
    while pulling up at my aunts the inevitable happened, front right alloy. !!!!!!!!!!
    that point good day went bad, with my mood already BAD, i popped in to calm down and say hello for 10 mins, once i left , it got even worse,
    some f***er had smashed my wing mirror off!!!

    any way got home, and ealked through the gate and caught my new jeans on it and ripped them.

    they say bad things come in three's. lol


    rant over, just need the car ready for trax now ahhhhh

    I've yet to mark my snowies myself, pre owner left a couple of marks.

    But the worse feeling i had was when i bought a brand new set of 18's for my 1st astra, they where only on the car a week. Went to the auto car wash (yes i know) and i went too close to the guide rails and the lack of rubber ment i grinded the full passenger side down the rail, all the way round...

    It could be worse. Back in 2007 I noticed a tumour on my eyelid (fortunately not cancerous), while waiting to have this fixed, I fell and broke my back and left wrist. Was just out of hospital following these fractures, when on the very morning I was due to go back into hospital to have my eyelid sorted I ended up in the burns unit with 20% 3rd and severe 2nd degree burns. All in all late 2007 and early 2008 was not a great time for me.

    Just curious about you ripping your jeans on the gate. How wide are you .
