People who drive with front fog lights on instead of headlights, and SPEED BUMPS, I don't speed so why should I have to cringe every time I drive over the severe pot holed bumps that are near me, MY POOR MORRIS.

People who you give way to at night who then think it is a good idea to blind you with a flash of their main beam.
People who do 40 in a 60 limit then STILL do forty when they reach a village with a 30 limit.
People who lane hog on the motorway.
SO many things make me go AAAAAARRRGGGHHH!!! these days.
Am I a grumpy old man?

Drivers (almost always AUDI drivers) who tailgate you at 70mph -clearly making up for inadequacies elsewhere

100%!!

4x4 driver's think they own the road!!

And....

Taxi drivers who leave their cars' headlights on when picking up fares.

Ford Ka drivers - special breed of motorist.

Anyone want to hear a story regarding a "ghost car"?

People who hit the brakes at the last minute when they see a speed camera, even though they were already doing 30mph and probably live in the area and pass that camera every day. :evil:

Must admit to liking the original Ka. They are great fun to drive. A bit like the Minis are really, but a hell of a lot cheaper!! A shame they are going rotten now.

The KA is a joke. Steering racks fail MoT left right & centre. Corrosion is a BIG issue everywhere on them.
Although we tested a 3 year old KA last week and it appears to be Fiat based now, wonder why?

American spell checkers on an English site! :roll:
When typing my draft copy I see the word colour is flagged up with a red underline if I put a 'u' in it.
When I remove the 'u' the red underline vanishes.......
Well sorry (and no offence to our American friends) but they never could spell the word colour any more than they can pronounce aluminium ( :lol: ) and there is a 'u' in it when spelled correctly!
Right, that off my chest, I'll put my soap box back under the sink........ :wink:
Best wishes,
Mike.

It doesn't make me "go AAAAARRRRGGGHHH!!! " but I notice, when in the Minor, that hitch-hikers thumbs tend to get dropped when you go past. Is it that they don't think the car capable, its beneath them or some other reason. Whatever, if they want to stay on the side of the road rather than get a lift, fine with me.

I was shuffling down a hill in a traffic jam the other day, and a pedestrian on the other side of the road gave me a big grin and a thumbs-up, which was nice! :)

Things that currently make me go aargh are my laptop, which seems to keep filling its C: drive space right up, despite my best attempts to clear it as much as possible and use anti-virus/malwarebytes, etc, etc. - I think it just gets crammed with random sh*t from surfing the web. :(

Drivers that, having been legitimately overtaken by me in my Morris, have a personal vendetta to drive an inch behind my bumper and overtake with no courtesy to myself or other traffic!!
