Re: Idiots

You aint seen nothing until you have been on a trip to see "The Idiots of Malia" in Crete

They get knocked of scooters, and have no health insurance, they wander into the main road without looking, they pull out in front of coaches/wagons and expect them to stop (They don't). They drink doctored cheap alcohol and wonder why they are ill. They all wear a T shirt at the airport with the same boring Logo on it 'Malia 2007' (the rest seem have been renamed Ronaldo and have it written on their red shirts in case they get lost). The drugs on the street there are plentiful and suspect (or so the taxi driver told me )

And when it all goes **** up..then that means they have pulled I suppose.

On the way out at the airport there were ten young British blokes in wheelchairs with all with gruesome (and possibly life changing) injuries to their legs.

Got that one off my chest (as the actress said to the bishop)

Re: Idiots

Joggers - probably because I seem to have had so many running blithely across roads without looking, i-Pod wires flapping I'm turning into them, or worse barely glancing and setting off across main roads, expecting cars to slam on the anchors for them.

I'd rather see the electric wheelchairs on the pavement than the road.

Re: Idiots

Another car was approaching then he puled in. Then he had the cheak to give us the finger. I think these sort of people get thrils from it. I just wish it was my brother driving lol

Re: Idiots

Oldies. I have an uncle just like that.

EG.
Pull up to roundabout in left hand lane.
Lorry or van pulls up in right hand lane.
Exclamation- 'now I can't see what's b100dy comin'

Where as, you or I in the same situation think 'I can go when he does. Because even if something is coming it'll hit him first'

For our international friends, please remember we drive on the 'wrong' side of the road and have clockwise roundabouts.
