Three are a useless bunch of wanchors...been on the phone for 20 minutes and counting trying to nullify their charges from February as agreed with an earlier call. Passed from pillar to post every thicker indian accents , explaining the situation over and over again...22 minutes now...

Please do not Three or if you work for them, leave immediately. Get a job at macdonalds or something, your life will be of much more use to society.

I use EE. Their call centre is in Newcastle. Sometimes means they are more difficult to understand the those in Mumbai!

Well my keys turned up after sitting on my tush for an hour so I’m all done now and supping some G&T in StJames’ ahead of my meeting.

Audis - Do I need to say anymore?

Latest thing that p155es me off with them is the front fairy lights. I hate fairy lights, sorry running lights, on all cars but the Audi one drives me mad when the indicators are used. Audi use the same light for both functions so when indicating one fairy light goes off.

Only good news is Audi drivers are like BMW drivers and rarely use indicators.

I hate to break it to you but Maserati do the same. The Ghibli, QP IV, and Levante, all use the same location for the front indicators and DRLs. The DRLs deactivate when you're indicating and flash orange instead. I'd expect this to continue with any new cars, Unicorn included.

Waiting at the Euro tunnel check in At Gard de Nord, the very nice French lady announced that all European passport holders move to a different line.
My wife and I stood still as did a group of other passengers, I strongly announced that I was NOT European I am BRITISH.

She changed her announcement to all EU and British passports

Get used to it EU - we are OUT!

Pretty sure they don't actually use the same lights, but they do dim / turn of the DRL to (I assume) make the indicator stand out more. Could be wrong, natch, but that's been my observation

At least you can see a flashing running light, it's been an annoyance to me for years that manufacturers have "designed" the indicator so it's become almost invisible , usually just an orange bulb buried in a headlight, , indicators should be orange and well separate from any other light on the car

This yesterday. Tiny little yellow indictor surrounded by bright brake lights. Impossible to see the indicator when the person was braking!!

I saw one on a ******* bus today, a circle of orange LEDs around a red brake light that was that bright I couldn't see the indicator at all so didn't let it out of the stop, it wasn't until I was alongside it I saw the side repeater.

That's going to lead to crashes as buses pull out assuming cars can see they're indicating , does nobody test them first !

Whilst we're ranting about lights - what about these LED number plate lamps that people fit? All they seem to do is shine a white light behind the car and barely illuminate the plate at all, making it nearly impossible to read the rear number plate at night.

What really gets me going is people that give no consideration to others and mope around paying no attention giving no thought to how their actions (or lack of them) have on others :

- people walking out of a shop doorway then immediately stopping - blocking the path for everyone
- people in queues that are messing with their phones or whatever and don’t move forward
- people at airport security who leave it until they are at the front before they sort themselves out - holding everyone up
- people who shop in petrol stations blocking the pumps
- people who wait patiently in line at the shop then seem surprised that they have to pay and mess about looking for their money
- people looking at their mobile phones and not paying attention to where they are going

I could go on but don’t want to come across as a miserable old git !
