JM -

My landlord suggested that i drive to the cinema tonight. It's the second time i've driven there now which is fine because he's driven to the pub etc, too.


'You need to speed up at this roundabout Paul. You do know that they don't wait for anyone?'


If someone wants to smash into my car they flipping well can. It'll be their fault not mine!

Then there's the constant mutterings about me sticking to the speed limit! I've moved to a new area ffs - there's a speed camera every 100 yards in Birmingham!

As it happens his driving is nothing short of atrocious.

Don't get me started on the french student who manages to get away with never buying a round of drinks whenever we are out either!

Rant over!

Try having someone on the back of your motorbike try tell you what they think are the right directions.

If you can handle that without sliding the rear tyre out at the next roundabout to sh*t them up, you're a better man than I.

Captain Mal Reynolds - I aim to misbehave

I aim to misbehave

my fathers a mechanic and every time he's in my car, he's either being a backseat driver or he starts investigating any little noise he hears, analysing what could be wrong, then asking me questions about the engine which I dont have a clue about. You're a mechanic. I am not. I dont know what a CV Boot Joint is, and even if I did, I very much doubt that I'd occasionally check it because I have bigger problems than a part of a car which sounds like a fake name you just said to confuse me.

And my cars a petrol, his is diesel. Anytime I'm driving his car he asks if I find a big difference between them, since ones petrol and the others diesel. Yeah, your car has seat covers.
Mal: Appears we got here just in the nick of time. What does that make us?
Zoƫ: Big damn heroes, sir.
Mal: Ain't we just.

equality, tolerance & logic

solution would be to let the Backseat Drivers to drive and then reverse the roles.
Now is that salary pre or post tax?
