Re: Things that annoy you!

The number of people who park in our street but don't even live here - they wander off somewhere, probably the shops, or the school, don't come back for hours, and meanwhile those of us who do live here can't park anywhere near our homes, and have to walk a fair distance, often in the rain, often with lots of shopping, to get home, grrrr.

Don't blame you for having a gripe about that, Bathsheba.

Oh, but it gets worse!

What will you do when you are obliged to buy an electric car?
Where will you charge it?

Re: Things that annoy you!

what annoys me the most is people who over analyse everything instead of just accepting things as is. To me it seems that because they are unable to do the same the only thing they can do is to try and pick whatever it is to pieces.
Must be some form of jealousy or envy that makes them do this

People who make up charges, under the guise of "handling fees" or "administration" Absolute baloney!

Yes, that problem is oft discussed in our house. There are thousands and thousands of homes like ours up and down the country, terraced houses with no drives, no front gardens. And then there are those in high rise flats. The idea of electric cars for all is, IMHO, unworkable.

Indeed. In fact, I'm sure that after all this trendy movement is done, common sense will prevail.
