    Default Bit of a tip for you all!

    If like me your CD player packs in, no buttons working, no lights on etc and can only listen to the radio. Don't punch it! I've broken my surround so one side swings back and forth

    Getting it plastic welded on wednesday but still not a good thing to do! And i now need to source a CD player when funds allow as i sold my 2 week old CD player with my old car as the buyer paid me extra! Wish i never bothered now

    So todays top tip! Don't punch the stereo or the surround!

    yep, been there asked wife to pass over my £300 ipod video, well she did by throwing it with spin, i didnt catch it right and it fell to the floor, smashing the screen, so in a rage i smached it off the floor again, about 10 min later logic set in and i found i could get a replacment screen from ebay, it arraved 2 days later, and i fitted it, powerd up and screen came on..... but guess what with my rage of throwing it down i broke the harddrive and that was about £200 to replace, so when anything goes wrong now i do my best to hold back, but it is difficult.

    I snapped a roller blind across me knee when i cut it too short, then realised i could of used it on another window.
    But then at my old workplace a big industrial space heater, the ones that hang from a warehouse roof, stopped working and it was freezing as in the middle winter in yorkshire. I welted it a few times with a big yard broom, and it fired into lifewith a big cloud of dust to the amazement of the lads at work.
