it's Friday afternoon and the time is dragging. There's still so much left to do and all I want is to go home!

So on Sunday I was driving along had gone a whole half mile when suddenly the engine starts sounding very rough at the same time from the dash board I hear a beep beep beep and a message appears. Motor control system failure. I think to myself this is not good and probably going to be expensive. I drive slowly home and start to look for a fault since the car sounds and feels like it's only on 3 cylinders I start there. Long story short the coil on cylinder 2 has died. Ordered a new coil this morning from my friendly motor factors and should arrive tommorw. The big question is since all the coils are the same age what's the bet the other 3 go shortly.

Since when did putting feet on seats become so widespread? Twice in the past hour I've asked people to stop doing it and one of them was older than me. This is one of the many reasons I hate public transport!

The older person protested the most btw. The young girl just smiled sheepishly and removed her feet from the seat

Public transport would be great if there were no other people on it and they got rid of the lingering smell of vomit and pish from the bus seats

It was the train but yes I agree, public transport would be a lot better if there was no-one else on it. On the way down I had the table all to myself and could spread out to work - bliss.

Just to cement how grumpy I am :lol: work does an annual transport survey part of which is meant to encourage us to use our cars less. There's one question every year which asks what they could do to encourage us to car share more and every year my answer is nothing as I can't stand other people in the morning :twist:

Oh ffs, someone please explain to my why I thought it sensible to put a dentist appointment in my holidays. Time off work is about the only perk of getting your mouth prodded and poked. This had better not hurt

Knowing you as I do, it would all depend on what or whom is doing the poking and prodding....
