Was just driving into Newcastle city centre to drop Mrs Venomous off before I went to work and we noticed a Suzuki Wagon Arse with a completely flat rear nearside tyre. We'd already followed it for about 5 miles down a dual carriageway before we noticed something wasn't quite right.

How the hell the bloke driving it (who was wearing a jumper that looked like his mother knitted it!) didn't realise that the car was handling worse than usual and was making strange noisees - although it became a bit clearer when we drove alongside and tried to signal that there was something wrong with his car as all we got back was a vacant stare.

The steering feel and handling on those things is so dire that they probably didn't notice :lol:
I've never driven one but I assume they're not exactly "mid-engined" in their handling ;)

Thing is, I used to have a Mk5 Escort estate and that handled like a whale but I could still tell when something was not quite right with the rear end - in this case a rear bearing had collapsed and one of the rear wheels was about to fall off! Bloody Fords :rolleyes:

I've driven on a flat rear before without noticing (ok, it wasnt entirely flat, but still.....). I couldnt tell the difference, and only noticed something was up when the car behind flashed me several times.


I am now really paranoid about my tyres,

Some old bloke was reversing back onto a roundabout from a motorway slip road on Saturday.

Couldn't believe how stupid/dangerous he was being just because he'd taken the wrong exit on the roundabout.

Some stupid woman pulled out from a standstill on the hardshoulder right in front of us on the M4 yesterday! :mad: it was peeing it down, the wipers were going like mad, there was a lot of surface water, and we had just picked up and engine so all in all, we didn't want to slam on the brakes - she still pulled out infront of us tho :mad: luckily we weren't going too fast!

When in france some mates and I got a minibus jammed in an underground carpark.

We fitted under the barrier with room to spare but it got lower further in the carpark. Got stuck between two concrete rafters. :rolleyes:

Had to let the tyres down to get out and then spent ages trying to find an open garage. (french lunchtime.)

One of the funniest and scariest moments ever.

Pedestrian crossing, Fosse Park Leicester, This evening - 7pm, Still daylight. Me and wife halfway across crossing. Old twat in an MPV tries to run us down. Me gesturing frantically old generated a blank look from the coffin dodger as he missed me by about an inch.

5 minutes later, crossing the crossing in the opposite direction, once again halfway over and some dizzy bint in a battered shitmobile tries to run us down, missing us by inches again. I hurl abuse in the general direction of the departing car as I am quite understandably pissed off with these repeated attempts on our lives.

I got a raised middle digit from the chavvy boyfriend in the passenger seat for my trouble.

Fuckwits.

Apologies for language!
