Down the road I drive,

Down the main road

When it pulls out,

Pulls out in front,

In front of me.

I had to brake,

Beep my hooter,

But it took no notice

Well it wouldn’t

It was a BMW,

They own the roads.

But then I laughed

As the number plate

Said it all,


Yes it was a cad.

    I saw a number plate - CLO5E ME.
    An upper-class twit there? The cad, the bounder, the...... Woof! Fido stopped me getting carried away there.
    Tally-ho and all that rubbish!
    Have you had soakings from fiends who deliberately splash you in the in their cars in wet weather?

      Thanks Orchi.

      No I have never been splashed like that and have never done it to others.

      I know the feeling only too well. A little while ago I was driving along a single track road out of our village when I was confronted by a 4by4 - it was obvious she wasn't going to back up even though I had to travel in reverse about three times the distance she would have had to. When she went past me not even a thankk you or acknowledgement - mind you I do drive a lowly Quashqai .

        Thanks Michael, there are some awful uncaring drivers on the road nowadays, you see them on a daily basis.

        Hahaha and a bounder too boot, most likely. Yes it is strange how such a posh car doesn't have working indicators. It's a funny meme I look for if I'm down. Feeling useless or without purpose I get a lift by imagining the guy fitting indicator switches to BMW's and what a meaningless, worthless job he's got! A good laugh thanks

        • Goldfinch60

          Thanks RDS, so glad I gave you a laugh.

          oh the duality of humanity, see I crave to cry Amen to your potent commentary Andy, but then my childhood was cushioned by a pillow of BMW's M3 dreams and I remain: unashamedly, a junky for all things with four wheels - imbued, with a pedal of freedom and escapism within speedometer's of invigorating aliveness...

          • Goldfinch60

            Thank you for the comment LB. My brother has a feeling of escapism with speed so I know where you are coming from.


          • Robert Haigh

            Thanks for the smile. At least he knows what he is!

            • Goldfinch60

              Thank you Robert, yes he certainly does know what he is.


            • ANGELA & BRIAN

              BRIAN HERE ~ Good evening Uncle ANDY ~ very droll ! We drive a VAUXALL MARIVA which is built for Seniors & we use it as Gerry Ferry ! Because I work in Education & Angela in the NHS we aggreed to buy Cars that are mostly built in the UK using UK components. A few of our Friends ~ who work in Industry have Firms cars ~ some BMWS & MERCS. They are nice people but their *wheels* do cause them to drive a bit arrogantly. Material things ~ Salary - Apparel - Houses - Possessions - Status etc do influence the way in which People behave ! A Mans life does not consist soley of his possessions it is his character that counts !
              Love the Video ~ sounds just like my Dads old Cortina !

              Blessings & Peace to You & Yours
              Love Angela Brian Smokey ! ! !

            • Fay Slimm.

              Ah yes - -- road-bounders and cads are everywhere Andy whatever their make of car - -- good to read your poetic outcry against their behaviour.

              • Goldfinch60

                Thanks Fay, yes they are everywhere.
