Not all disabilities are visible.
The point of an escalator is to not have to climb stairs.

Have to agree with Ghost and Tamar. I would stand as I have a lot of back pain when I've walked some distance (without a lawnmower) and it's a good moment to do a secret stretch to unknot my muscles :shifty:
People who drive on country roads (which are, theoretically, national speed limit roads) at 30 mph whilst wandering between the kerb and two wheels over the centre line for miles and miles and .........with a tailback of 10 cars behind when there's usually one car per minute AND do not have the good grace to pull over for a bit to allow people to pass them are..........
Sorry folks, I'm usually a very patient and laidback motorist but I could have killed after a 200 mile round trip yesterday with abominable loads and vans in front blowing tyres, gypsies and travellers all over the shop in Cumbria (near Appleby) and with home in sight I got stuck behind this joker for a good 10 miles. Broke my own rule about honking the horn on the way past :oops: :naughty:

Just make sure you do not say the word Jehov....

(Start at 2.00 if you're impatient :P )
:lol:

Not being able to find the one tool i need(in this case a mastic gun,not exactly something you'd easily miss you'd think. :whistle: ) is an abomination unto Nuggan.

OK, OK, jeez... delete the word "apparently"

I'm able-bodied and sometimes I stand on escalators, sometimes I walk. It would never occur to me that this might wind someone up. Less do I care. The problem's yours, dude! :P

You have kerbs and centre lines! :o :doh: Those aren't country roads - country roads have moss and/or grass down the centre and a ditch either side of the hardcore (we wish we had a hint of asphalt still! ;) ) Oh yeah and we can get half of a smallish car on either side of the green line and think ourselves lucky to have passing places aka gateways to fields... :lol:

Down y'arrrr anyone who drives over 40 mph down country lanes (20 when its a twisty one :P ) is an abomination unto Nuggan - actually we'll let you speed a bit if you wind the window down and turn the sound system off so's you can listen for other vehicles - or stock - or emmetts walking on the wrong side of the road ( and I mean the road not the pavement or kerbstone) - ramblers if they're literally on the right side (facing oncoming traffic in the UK) :P :shifty:
B roads - with lines and mostly 2 carriageways (1 going 1 coming) I agree you're a big girlie wuss if you don't get up to 50 mph in between speed traps.... :shifty:

Being London born and bred, it has always been walk down on the lefthand side of the escalator, and stand on the righthand side.

I find I get dizzy and discombooberated if I walk down, so I stand.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

Facebook is an abomination, etc, etc, but I found this warning today (on Twitter! :oops: ) and thought I'd pass it on in case any of you are on FB.

Beware being "friended" by someone calling herself Margaret Smile out of Dallas....she's one of those Facebook Lottery Scammers.

The road in question was mainly that over the fells between Weardale and Teesdale and it does have kerbstones but the sheep often kick them out of place..........and, yeah, OK, I'll concede that the centreline was a hypothetical one :lol:
However, it does have black and white snow poles but they're often used for target practice by the local boy racers (who have rich daddies to pick up the repair bills) and bum scratching posts by the sheep.
The County Durham name for a road with grass growing down the middle is a three-ply road!
I LOVE West Country lanes with the overhanging hedgerows cut in steps to accommodate vehicles of different heights :D :lol:
Speeding? Moi? Got done for doing 36 in a 30 limit about 5 years ago (camera.....click here to view your OFFENCE.... :shock: ) and got the option to do a half day speed awareness course which was the same cost as the fine but no points. You only get one go at that and they throw the book at you if you get caught again :(
Oh yes! The joys of motoring :lol:

Me to re the speed trap - I was doing 38 in a 30 zone that had not long been reduced from 40 mph :roll:

OK - so I knew what the speed limit was :oops: but it was on a bloody great hill out of a tight corner with poor visibility (which is why the 30 limit came in before the corner) and you had to gun it to get out of the side road I was on with enough revs to get up the hill. Bit embarassing really - I nearly knocked over the guy with the speed gun who jumped out at me from someone's drive just as I was easing off the revs... :shifty: :whistle:
