rant of the week - wotspur
Why do some drivers insist on doing just 40 in a N.S.L., then continue at 40 in a 40 mph, and still do the same in a 30 mph, do they honestly believe that because they've averaged 40mph, they're doing ok.
My other pet hates are in no particular order
VOLVO drivers, they think they own the road, are always at the front of a queue, slowest away from the lights and hog the middle lane at 65 mph
flat cap wearers, often driving volvo's
and drivers of "P" REG CARS, frequently Volvo drivers and wearing flat caps
and those as others who've mentioned people who can't drive at night, especially in Volovs.
horse boxes and obviously caravans, of course they've got the right to use the road- just not between 06.00 and 20.00, especially if driving "p "reg Volvo's whilst wearing a flat cap.
and finally foreign lorry drivers, not because they're foreign purely because they come over here fully loaded with fuel, destroying our roads and contributing jack, whilst causing many an accident with their un restricted speed limitors and not being used to driving on the left hand side.
Yes I've had a bad day

"foreign lorry drivers"

Is that all foreign lorry drivers, or just those driving Volvos?

You didn't mention cyclists, motorcyclists or pedestrians.

Sorry you've had a bad day, but you could do with being more detached if these things annoy you.

Therapy required, I think ;-)

That's because they mostly aren't Volvo owners. Next time you are held up by a pedestrian hogging the middle of the pavement, try asking her where she has parked her Volvo (badly).

Well, what would you call them wotspur?

Although I am a professional text person I would have to be paid to think of a term that would pass muster on this family-type forum.

Then again they might be going flat out in their G-Whizes and think you're the fuzz vainly trying to catch them.

Wotspur, buy yourself a Volvo and enjoy a more sedate pace of life or buy a faster car to overtake them with. ;O)

OP made me laugh.

Totaly agree with drivers who think 40mph is fine everywhere.

The things you said about P reg cars I have to disagree with, I drive a P reg.

People can have rants about any kind of car, if you think of a brand then someone, somewhere, will have had a ran't about that perticular brand. I bet the OP has a BMW. The only people who don't seem to get a reputation are people in their 40's, driving totally nondesipt cars. I have never heard ran'ts about the middle aged driving in nissan primeras.

the funny thing is, when you overtake them you get a look that should be reserved for child molesters.

Oblivious to the fact they don't pay proper attention to their surroundings and have just driven through a built up area..without properly concentrating.....which is far worse than a brisk overtake in the nationals by someone paying attention
