Not exactly a bad mood but just realized I have spent well over 100 quid without noticing making purchases on car cleaning products I don't exactly need until July...

So far I'm the same.
Upgraded lights, mudflaps, wind deflectors, smoked indicator repeaters, and now I'm looking at those rear light units! If I was married to SWMBO it'd be grounds for divorce!

I had to do the course (39 in 30) to be fair it did help, my speed in built up areas has decreased, but on A roads/motorways it's still the same!

F***ing kids!

Just leaving Tesco car park (in Mansfield) it backs onto a new youth/sports centre and as I was driving past it I heard an almight clang! Get out and I can see that the drivers side rear wing (near rear window) has a tiny dent and a decent-sized chip.  >:(

As I stood there I saw a couple of small stones come over and land in the car park (no other cars nearby fortunately)

Couldn't see who threw it as there's an 8ft high, wooden fence. Ran over and jumped up on fence and gave a group of guilty looking lads a rollocking, but of course no-one knew anything....... They were only around 10 so it's not even like police would be interested - can't even sue the buggers!

Don't think they'll be throwing stones again in a hurry - but doesn't do my baby any good! The bonet is already full of stone chips - but I was rather hoping that the rest would remain in good nick! That matt black wrap is looking more and more desireable 1500 though........

Still in a foul-mood. Sat with a coke with a hefty amount of Jack in it!

I'd have jumped the fence and gave them a proper fright, along with a sore face regardless of age! Kids doing stuff like that really pushes my buttons and even more infuriating when the police do nothing about it despite giving them there names, address etc. We have got it around here a few times.

I've calmed down a bit now - the icing on a sh*tty day  :(

I suppose it's karma - when I look back I was a right little sh*t at times - part of growing up is getting up to mischief, and I reckon I did worse - (not to people's cars but in general) . Not pleasant that it's my car that has a chip, as it's the car that I work my tits off to afford...... but now my blood has de-boiled I can shrug it off........... otherwise I'd go mad! I wish it was an adult that did it so I could have chinned him lol!

I'm avoiding that Tescos from now on - years ago when I got my brand new 10 plate APE - some fucker dinged the wing (with a trolley from the height, though that's only a guess as no note left) and scraped the paintwork to bare metal across a 3 inch scratch - I'd only had the car a couple of months from new  :( This time round a A500 a couple of months into ownership (at least it's not new!) and another bit of damage.

**%%!

My Auntie died suddenly last night, got a phone call from my uncle at 3 in the morning, heart attack, she was only 53 so very unexpected and no history. One of many but her and my Uncle were the closest relatives to my family and we went on holidays every year together, shocked...  :-\

Sorry for you loss Brian. It's always that much harder to take when it's unexpected (no warning)

My best mate died nearly 2 years ago while we were out on our motorbikes together a few years ago. Car turned into a hidden junction without indicating as he went to overtake and had a head on. He was only 23.

Just remember the good times. Although time doesn't heal the pain you learn to live with it.

Thanks Coxy. I know its a part of life these things happening, like you said times the best healer. That sounds horrible your experience with your friend and a year younger than me as well, so sad.
