    Default Mr Grumpy made Angry

    It's been a bit of a week. Still both recovering from the gastric virus, wife's car flagged up service needed 58 reg but only 1557 miles, she's had it since April this year. she rang the dealer, who told her as the car is now 2 years old, everything needs changing, to the tune of £170+, and there will be an extra charge of £35 for checking the fluid levels and tyre pressures.
    I had to take her to the vet in my car as one of her pedigree show kittens was very ill, died this morning, 3rd of 5 to die from this litter.
    She needed cheering up, so I drove her to Asda to get the new Professor Layton game for her DS. Had go go past Clocktower McDonalds, just before 10pm, picked up two car loads of young lads driving so close I couldn't see they're headlights. Not great in the 30mph limit, they continued doing it when we got to the 50mph stretch, then came howling alongside and sat on the wrong side of the road before roaring off. Couldn't get registrations, but they split at the Asda roundabout when the spotted a police car coming up from Donnington.
    Having seen the pics of one nice Vec with it's rear bashed in this week I thought mine was next! Morons.

    The vectra deffinately attracts them doesnt it, I seem to pick up every saxo and corsa driver in a 3 mile radius ....it really gets annoying when your judging your braking more on whats happening behind you than infront of you where you should be paying more attention.

    Sorry about the bad week .. next week will be better ;-)
