Annual Easter chaos ( warning long rant)
« on: 13 April 2017, 23:37:17 »

For me started last  Monday ,  been servicing  my 45 year old Citroen  2CV for my now or never grand tour of the UK ,  Tuesday  took it for a final shake down road test ,  nice sunny day roof open ,  slowly that odd serene feeling started to kick in , them my paygo mobile rang it was my daughter ,  DAD my car   , I knew by tone of voice ( trouble ) has stopped  in the middle of a box section junction in  London , everyone is hooting at me , I could hear it ,  ok I am 40 miles away , phone the AA  ,  call me back ,
She did,  the AA is on itís way , but she  have been pushed off the Junction  by some nice Polish night office cleaners ,  who were having a coffee from a near by kiosk , they also got her a coffee  and waited for the AA , just in case a traffic warden arrived first  and booked her for parking on the pavement ,
Serenity over , AA towed the car to a local garage of my choice , ( Ferrari specialist I know  and trust ) even the AA guy drove my daughter home  (Thanks AA Keith ), 
The problem was a Computer style  plug and socket connection problem  , a quick clean and some wd 40  job done ,  indeed bloody computer stuff on cars yet again,
Smart enough to tell her last week  her l/h brake light was faulty .but totally dumb when the car ran to a stop with total logged memory amnesia ,

Bring back the horse and cart I say , the dropping were great for the rhubarb & roses
Canít say that about VW diesels ,
Today  restarted my 2cv road test  joined the M25 spent 2 hours stationary  due to a lorry jack knifing near Reigate , finally got off  took the back street home  to find the road closed due to a car parked in the middle off the road on itís roof ,  covered 37 miles in only 5 hours!!!, and the Easter rush hadnít even started ,
Got some burgers and beer in , will be spending Easter in the garden , even if it rains ,

  Roco,you made me laugh mate. :))

I drive a honda and it's never given me any trouble, apart from general wear and tear.
Geting back to the easter choas, I have names for the days of the week when I'm driving on the road.
Moron monday, idiot tuesday, w***** Wednesday Thicko Thursday and F***wit Friday. >:D
Helps me stay calm and focus when some other driver does something stupid and tries to kill themselves and everyone else. It  also helps me, so I don't get wound up I just laugh it off instead. :))

 lol:1  personally dont do road rage , travelled so many miles . around 1/2 million on motorcycles and I guess double that on 4 wheels ,  don't mind nutters emptying their  gene pool, as long as they don't try to take me with them,
while stuck on the motorway my dear travelling companion started the 10 green bottles song  , insisted I joined in ,  then rapidly moved on to I spy with my little eye game ,it sort of averted me from repeatedly saying

btw Fudgie yes Honda cars have a great reputation  ,   but then it seems most vehicles with the Japan connection do , looking back how the Brit motor industry sneered at the early  oriental vehicles , now try naming a truly Brit vehicle maker ? including trains etc
