Middle Lane Morons.

YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!!

Why? Is there something wrong with the left-hand lane? I’ve heard a few excuses for this, but the usual seems to be a ‘comfort zone’ thing. The middle lane driver prefers driving there as there is plenty of room round them and they can overtook some cars without having to switch lanes.

If you don’t have enough confidence to overtake on a motorway I would suggest that you shouldn’t be driving on it in the first place. Of course as the majority of drivers took their lessons many years ago, it would be before the introduction of motoroway lessons. Another argument for regular testing?

And for future reference, when I deliberately pull into the left-hand lane, then swerve over into the outside lane (missing your rear bump but close enough to worry you) and then swerve back across your nose (again close but not dangerously so) all the way back to the left-hand lane again I’m trying to make a point! Pull-the-feck-over!

There are several building works near our office, one of which I walk past everyday. There is a sign on the gate that says “17 days since the last reportable accident on this site”. Which only serves to make me wonder what the definition of a ‘reportable’ accident is, a broken fingernail perhaps, or a builder caught short 5 storeys from the portaloo?

In other news, in preparation for our upcoming holiday I spent a few hours dumping some music onto our iPod (OK, it’s her iPod… pah…). It’s a 10GB model, and as I have over 30GB of music on my PC I didn’t think I’d struggle to fill it, but of course it’s almost 30GB of MY music, so I ended up recording more stuff for HER and have still got 5GB to go! And the chances of us actually getting close to listening to even a quarter of the tracks are of course slim to none, but that’s not the point is it…

More Friday silliness, or possibly a way to keep yourself busy until 5pm:
Duct Tape Wall Tapings

Hmm now how do you explain it to the boss?
