Car seats that would burn your legs if wearing shorts in the summer
😳 Try sitting in a current Mokka X with black leather seats that’s been sat in the sun all day, or any current car with black leather seats, for that matter, with the current weather conditions. I can promise you, from personal experience, it stings!Posted 1 year agoMr WoppitMember

Afternoon closing in the pub. I miss three hours of drinking in the park until the pub opened again at 6!
That’s a good one – what goes with it is 11:00 closing, stupid amounts of consumption between 10:45 and 11:15, lock-ins, and joy at the local having an extension on a bank holiday (usually leading to ridiculous amounts of consumption between 12:15 and 12:45 instead).* Which reminds me of another thing – the stench of smoke on clothes the next day.
