    I still don’t see what her being “posh” has to do with it.

    You’re driving on a quiet country road you know well when your lights die with only a few miles to go. Full moon and clear sky. Do you stop and walk/taxi/lift or just go on slowly, pulling in when cars pass?

    I had this happen to me last winter. My full beams and fogs still worked so I whacked the full beams on, dipping to fogs when there was oncoming traffic, and got myself to safety. Am I a bad man?

    Blimey, thought that everyone might have a giggle but wasn’t expecting this to start a huge debate.

    The road wasn’t that steep and there were places to turn around just behind her, so no need for me to be a gallant hero type (whatever the reward). We have a lot of useless posh in the Bath/Bristol area. When I got home my girlfriend was stunned that anyone could know so little about driving, but she did grow up in mid-wales where they have proper snow.

    Further along my journey were a set of tracks down a steep hill, into the bank and showing that a neat 180 spin followed. Both incidents were on small back lanes which are a short cut between major (gritted) roads, neither have any houses on them, so there was no need for anyone to be driving there. Great riding though.

    The lack of common sense has genuinely come as a surprise, despite the stereotypes…

    I went to Uni in Bristol with someone that didn’t know how a tin opener worked. She was a medical student – apparently the maid did that sort of thing at home… 🙄

    I used to work in Bath, there’s a lot of useless non-posh there too

    Hmmmmmm. Having read all this I think what we can all take from this thread is that everyone in Bristol/Bath is useless.

    From the posts I regularly see here, that would apply to every area apart from the tea-leaving of expensive bikes. They seem to be quite good at that down there

    Nuke ’em from orbit?

    Posh people should ride on buses.
    It would raise the standards of driving and of bus passengers in one go.

    Only everything.

    Clearly not ‘posh’ enough as she was driving, not her man that does…

    If posh people just took time out from horse-riding or shooting things….just a moment in a day… to experience the simple, uncomplicated joys life can offer

    That wonderous feeling of well-being as, sat on the bus, you sink your nashers into a Greggs Steak Bake, feeling the grease run down your chin and drip on to the article you’re reading about Kerry Katona.

    We’d be a more united society my friends
