I went to bed about 8pm... and fell asweep. Very tired! I think not drinking makes me tired...



But... some one phoned me up at 10pm and woke me up <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->



My phone never rings... I'd actually forgotten what it sounded like! I didn't answer it, went to message.



Turns out its a mate of mine I haven't seen for a while... "Going travelling for a few months. Leave on Sunday."



Doh!! I've been meaning to pop round for ages... but something keeps coming up. Laziness the last couple of weeks I guess... Gotta ring him tomorrow, but probably too late to drink up for a meet...



Anyway. I've drunk 3 cups of tea, eaten fish fingers and curried rice with Ketchup and read all the forums. Time for bed again I think.



Night all!

Aargg... I was nearly sleeping, and I started to think about something that really annoys me...





Traffic Wardens!





Urgg... they should all die. Now. They exist only to inflict misery on others, like Nazi torturers...



The story that gives me nightmares happened way back in about 1992 - and it STILL keeps me awake at night. They're Evil. Absolute pure Evil. I'd rather trust Satan or even a politician...



My van was parked on Soho square, clearly displaying a P&D ticket. They towed it to somewhere in south London; and I seriously don't know my around without a map so I had to get a cab...



Luckily I had about ?10 on me - which was pretty unusual... I'd left my wallet in the car; stupid I know but I figured it was safer than carrying it.



So I get to the place and they tell me I need to pay like ?75 or something to get the van out. I don't have that much until I get paid in about 3 weeks. They tell me it will cost an extra ?50 a day - so by the time I've got the ?75 I will owe them over ?1000 !!! I don't even get paid that in a whole month!



I try to explain this to them, that there must be some law to stop them extorting money from honest working people, and what they're telling me is just preposterous... but they laugh; they tell me if I've got a car I must have the money. It's not my car - its a works van...



All I can do is pay the fine and take them to court to get the money back after. I remind you - the Pay and Display ticket is in the window and still valid!



So... I have no choice. I murder 6 old ladys before I get enough money to pay the bastards, and I still have nightmares. Burn them I say. Send them all to hell!



Aarghh... I need a valium <!--emo&:(--><img src='http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/sad.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='sad.gif' /><!--endemo-->



A random Google for "hang the evil nazi traffic warden die die die" came up with this:



The Afterreich


CHAPTER SIX wrote:"How do you spell ?Revolution??"



- Louis XVI, the palace of Marseilles







This little scene wasn?t happening. It wasn?t happening in the darkened basement of a building used for adult education courses. There most certainly wasn?t a circular table squatting under a spotlight, and there was a definite absence of hooded figures sitting round it.



"?Six men sat on the edge of Hell,?" quoth one hooded figure who wasn?t there.



"?One was a lawyer,?" said the next one who also wasn?t there.



"?One was a traffic warden,?" said someone else who was there but only to give the place the quick once-over with the hoover.

aargh, nasty! all traffic wardens are evil spawns of satan. they must die!!!!!



i've had a couple of tickets myself working in London (of course, who hasn't? :angry: )



the one that really pissed me off though was when i had to do a quick monitor delivery to a place just off Fleet Street.

the nearest car park is about 1/2 mile away, and i didn't fancy lugging a monitor that far. however, there were parking meters just outside the building, and (incredibly) there was a vacant spot, so i took it. these meters cost something ridiculous like about ?1 per minute, so i shovelled all the spare change i had into the meter (good luck getting that back on expenses, but that's another story!), which got me about 3 minutes.

so i pulled the monitor out of the car, ran up the stairs, dropped the monitor off, got a signature, ran back to the car (3 1/2 minutes later - i was timing it!) and found a ticket on my windscreen :angry: :angry: :angry:



the nazi child killing granny beating demon from hell (aka traffic warden) was nowhere to be seen, i figured they must have waited by my car, ticket ready, waiting for the meter to go.

so ?50 later, plus the change for the meter, i would have been financially better off if i'd stayed in bed that day :o



and all for being 30 seconds over on a meter.



annoyed? you bet....

Oops... let me re-write that:
