    We left JFK on Tuesday evening and had a pleasant flight back to London, arrived Weds morning.

    Upon arrival it was apparent that my bag had decided to have an extra day checking out the sights of the big apple.

    “No problem sir , it will be on a follow on flight, be delivered by courier tomorrow “ ( there are a number per day )

    So I called this morning to find out the ETA of said courier.

    “ Oh, your bag is still in New York and we don’t know why.. “

    Cue a very deep breath as it wasn’t her direct fault...

    ... followed by counting to 9.999998.

    My MM shirts & Helen’s winter coat that we really need for this weekend are in that bag, as well as the normal wash bag, underwear etc

    It won’t land before tomorrow morning and they couldn’t confirm exactly when it will be available.. we’re leaving for Anglesey in the morning..

    I’m really quite annoyed.
    Simon no longer owes me anything, Dave does though.
    Floyd probably owes me at least twenty with the interest rolling up...

    The daily's packed up. Cooling system problem. It's in the workshop and so far, they're fitting a new water pump and thermostat before they can test if further. I suspect head gasket failure under motorway load speeds. Again.

    BMW needs an oil and microfiber service. On their web site you can price up the job at all the local dealers and get yourself booked in. Simples. At least it would have been if i could have got them to return a phone call. They are happy to take a booking but as soon as you ask them to confirm the price they have to check and never call you back. Having tried 4 times at my local dealer I gave up and went somewhere else. Strangely enough the job is also significantly cheaper at the second dealer.

    Just plain daft and embarrassing for what is supposed to be a quality brand.

    Oh and my service book will now be stamped with the words..... Dick.... Lovett. I hope their are no spelling mistakes

    about to drive into my road and heard a massive bang. Car got egged by some little bellends. Parked up and walked back around and spotted them on bikes. Turned my light off and they tried to go round me but failed. Utterly crapped themselves that I caught them.

    Walked off then they became hard and started hurling abuse Why cant you just give kids a slap like when we where kids

    Exactly which TV show or gobshite is responsible for lowballing wankers? Can we pin this down to one person for me to despise?
