What is ISP? I used to be annoyed by people cutting in line but I had to learn to just do the same myself. I think if everyone does it then the problem solves itself. Yesterday I actually saw someone trying to drive in the middle of both lanes to prevent people from cutting in but it was not successful because his car was too narrow lol.

I have seen trucks blocking queues to places where lanes are closed so everyone is forced to merge beforehand.

I see this as the automotive equivalent of a Collie organising sheep(le) to behave so everyone benefits.

My annoyance for today - it has rained all day, so no updating my mods in more waterproof materials.

2nd annoyance, Mrs A discusses trading in Helga again just after I decided to keep her and paid £135 for a year's tax...

Following a, er, lady driver up a steep hill yesterday.

I held back as I could see her accelerating as fast as she could to a parked car on our side so I knew we would have to stop as there was traffic coming the other way. Anticipation, its the name of the game.

It took her totally by surprise though as she managed to lock the wheels going uphill in her ABS/ABD equiped kid-mover.

Anyhoo all of this cleverness was wasted because Mrs Muppet couldn't do hill starts, so she stalled. Not once, not twice, but THREE times.

Ford C-Max 1.6 Petrol, it must be a torque mountain.

So she stalled "once, twice, three times" because she's a lady?
