    I know it's Christmas Eve and all, but still, why are there so many idiots about?
    I've just come back from taking the dogs to the vet to have their stitches out. All is fine, they can now run around like mad. Which is great because the built up energy has really started to show itself over the last couple of days. I popped into Sainsbury's whilst I was out. It wasn't busy at all, but the people in there were like zombies. And some of the driving today! Sitting in the car park waiting until it was near enough to the appointment to go inside and I must have seen at least six (almost)car crashes. People just aren't looking where they're going.

    When it comes to this time, people are idiots!!!

    Have you heard that in the UK people are getting rid of their old pets (and no I dont mean giving them away, I mean dumping them) So that they have room for new ones on christmas day! :(

    Makes me want to cry, I cant believe it, I would never ever do anything close to that to my dog, nopt even for a million pounds!

    That's because most of the people out driving don't normally drive - it's just a special treat for Christmas. I've been out in a van doing urgent medical deliveries to-day. I don't believe the number of people who can't work out how to release the handbrake or what the indicators are for (I've figured out that if someone indicates it means they don't know where they are going and they panic....)

    you see, now people are really busy and tired, they have enough... they can't stand the "speed" they are living with, they need to unwind. It's everything because our living style. We are running all the time and we have no time for ourselves :)

    There was me thinking they just let the mentals out today. Just like they do when it starts to rain.

    A wheel nut? :mrgreen:
    Do you mean the dustcap? Or an actual nut? Maybe they were after the wheels themselves.

    It's been scientifically proved that when it rains the sawdust in their heads gets damp and swells putting undue pressure on their 'smart' nerve. this goes to sleep and allows their 'stupid' nerve to take control. That's why some people don't have the sense to come in out of the rain - the 'stupid' nerve is trying to keep the sawdust damp (it ain't THAT stupid!)

    Well, what with all the last minute Christmas shopping maybe there were no wheel nuts left. So someone had yours.
    Your nut is going to make someone very happy.
