When your employer finally fills the 4th vacant role in your team 4 weeks before announcing that there will be a reduction of 1 role.

When instead of deciding who it is that will be made redundant they put the imputus on us to find a way to save the role and leave it hanging over our heads in the run up to Xmas.

When the 'enhanced' redundancy package means that you will get 2 weeks pay out of it...

When your missus has to work double shifts at her job cos the lay-about good for nothing staff she employs decide they dont want to work tonight cos "Gears of War 2 is out"/"Im in slough and I dont know how to get back"/just say they aint working and dont bother to find cover.

When the flat you live in is the coldest place on the planet and you have to wear hoodies to bed and hold on tight [I quite like this actually but it sucks when you have to get out of bed!].

Rude people.

when you feel so angry with somebody you love and have to be around them everyday for daily life to continue.

Drivers who constantly shuttle back and forth between 30-40 and 60+mph on a 60mph road, causing you to shuttle back and forth as you accelerate to a reasonable speed and stamp on the brake five seconds later, despite the fact that the nearest traffic in front that would cause them to change speed is at least one or two hundred yards ahead.  But they don't shuttle at random, no; they go slow when you can't pass, and speed up when the opposite lane is clear...

I seem to be caught behind them all the time, these days.

And tractors.  20mph tractors.  I hate the country.

Cars. Generally speaking. piss me of.

As the saying goes, you never really learn to swear until you learn to drive.

Everytime I think I've seen it all on the roads, some muppet (usually in a Merc or BMW) goes out of their way to prove me wrong.

:lol:  I've had my license just over a year, but I feel like I've accumulated enough grudges to turn a dwarf green.  Including stuff about Merc and BMW drivers.

Sorry Medved.

Too right Bodhi.
I almost bought a bike last month and was going to cycle 1600miles from Southern Spain back to Newcastle England. Then common sense kicked in.

Peace and love...

@ weirdwolf: thanks, yours too, especially the Norton, id give up my left nut to have one...
though i have to say the only one im proud of is the 83 GSG, and i still have it!!!!  :boing: :boing: because im i bit on the tall side though i dont go in for street machines, more the standard style or the enduros as i find em more comfy and easier to handle at extreamly slow speeds.

eventually though im going to get a 2002 TDM900 Red Yellow Cocktail 1:     gatta be that year, that colour, and well, you know...... bikes...........

The one that annoys all the neighbourhood  :lol:... :whistle:

Why do people buy a bike loud enough to annoy the neighbours and then brag about it...?

Guess there are 2 sides to every point of view...

Oh dear, I can't see the brag myself, just making a comment in biker lingo to a fellow rider. As for the neighbourhood I have the greatest respect for most of them (noise level kept to a minimum). Your right, there are two ends to a stick, it's just a point of grabbing the right end, ain't it.... :hmmm.

@ Hawkins, nice choice  :thumbup:, the third bike down is a TDM 850 (Harris frame).

Sorry Medved.
I've been driving coaches for the past two years, and that's when I REALLY learned how many w*****s there are on the road. Like the woman who overtook me and the two cars behind me at high speed while I was waiting (with indicators on) to pass parked cars, and nearly took out a learner motorcyclist and their instructor coming the other way! :tantrum:

I can sympathize with you there...I did some coach & bus driving a while back. It amazed me, as soon as you touched the brakes...the cars would come piling around the side of you, indicators showing or not... :nuts:.

I remember one time...a young girl had been knocked of her push bike & was sprawled in the middle of the road...the foot bobby asked if I could bloke the road to stop traffic...until the traffic police got there.
No worries, I was off service (it wouldn't of mattered if I was on service). I pulls the bus across the road, blocking it or so we thought. I got out to help (i laid on the floor with the girl, keeping her talking)..& what should happen...a scrapping noise as a female driver squeezes between the front of the bus & the building  :jawdrop:...amazing...then another female driver mounts the pavement at the rear of the bus...double amazing...but not to be out done by the ladies..five male drivers follow suit... :tsk: :eatlead: :christalmighty:.
Now, I've seen coppers get frustrated, this one blew his lid...made them all drive up the side street (dead end) until he had time to book them....thanks to the CCTV on my vehicle...all were brought up on charges...three lost their licences.. :applause:.

I now drive HGV's...swearing...it's enough to make a Bishop kick a hole in a stain glass window.. :lol:

Being a cop, I really appreciate your helping with this british workmate. Many people seem to believe we can 'magically' take care of everything, but most times we are sort on needed resources, so having someone helping us is very important. Also, I'm glad those drivers were punished, because that kind of disrespect really p*** me off.

 :lol: cheers Vermis...one thing I really can't stand is stupid drivers....I'm sure that those of us out there who drive for a living could fill a book (or volumes) of idiotic antics of those who have supposedly passed their test...mind you..I can think of a few driving instructor stories as well.. :crazy:.

To me one of the biggest responsibility's we are handed is a driving license...why some people are given them in the first place is beyond me...that goes for all walks of road users.. :whistle:

One thing I can't do is stand back & watch somebody suffer, if I can, I will help every time... :thumbup:.
I've lost count how many times I have helped our bobbies out...the last time was a couple of weeks ago, when I helped a WPC with a group of drunks.. :grrr:

I have traveled all over the globe & our police force (service) is the very best I have seen. They deserve far more support from the public than they get...& far far more support from the CPS...my hat off to you all  :respect:.
