    Councils raising money from parking fines

    Where I live we have parking permits. All the streets near me have signs saying 'permit holders only'. Still, the street is often clogged with cars parked on both sides. So far so Top Gear.

    So last night I park in a bay near my street, with my permit, a bay I park in often.

    Woke up to a parking ticket :-<

    Turns out that this bay is the only bay for several streets that isn't permit holders only, but is time limited to 2 hours. The signs are nearly identical! I'd never noticed before.

    I won't win that challenge. The sign is clear and it is my fault for not reading it fully and just assuming it was the same as others but GRRRRRRRRRRR. It just feels like the council are trying to nickel and dime their residents.
    It might be worth a very nicely worded letter appealing for mercy. I've had some luck in the past with a similar situation. The trick is to not be angry and arsey.

    The road I used to live on was like that. Some spaces were 2 hours, some were permit only. Got to be really careful, irritates the fuck out of me,

    Trying to do my tax return. Can't remember my Gov ID or Password, and the only company who can run a verification check (experian) can't find me.

    Now I get to wait 10 days for a letter to arrive with all my details on, because this is somehow more secure than just emailing the details to me.

    Walking on the edge of 3-4m wide walkways, why do cyclists drive by so closely that they almost hit me? Standing on the edge of it watching the river, why do joggers jog by so closely that I can almost feel their breath in my neck?

    Yep. And you're not allowed to smack their arses as they go by anymore. Counts as assault now, apparently. There's no justice in the world :(

    I remember doing delivery driving down to central London a few years back. I'd never been to London before that. When I started I couldn't open the van door without nearly wiping out a cyclist zipping past, right by my door. They responded like I intentionally was trying to hurt them too, but they came from all angles and at all times. I'd never seem anything like it. All blacks they were too, just seems like you never see a white face anymore.

    I just glanced at the forum and saw

    "Stupid things that annoy you but shouldn't"
    "Your mother"

    It's true.

    I've never put anyone on ignore. Somehow the forum has automatically blocked comments from Piers_Morgan. As it happens, I'm not surprised. That's some fairly shocking stuff to say in an open forum.

    As a Jewish, black cyclist I am hurt and offended.

    My lawyer, however, is a seventh day adventist, roller blader and feels no need to support me in my time of outrage.

    Cornish Pasties served at a stupidly high internal temperature, so instead of a quick bite I have to carry the thing around for about an hour for the fucking thing to cool down to an edible temp.

    People who eat Cornish pasties in the office and make the place smell like a sweaty fat man.
