- What have you seen today that made you think WTF?
If you ever get to see petrol forecourts over a long period of time, some of things people do really do make you wonder. One of my personal favourites was the guy topping up his oil, by pouring it down the dipstick tube, why because he had broken the filler cap, not recently but a couple of years ago. That’s without the people keeping dogs in push along shopping trolleys (the tartan variety) taking them out to walk them, then putting them back in the shopping trolleys.Posted 4 years agoglupton1976Member
I saw some middle aged volvo driver, driving his car with a labrador on his lap whilst talking on his mobile. This was in Edinburgh outside the old Bonnington school at 11:20.
I suppose he was driving without due care and attention and it wasnt dangerous in anyway shape or form…Posted 4 years agoesselgruntfuttockMember

Had the same thing in the 80’s with a lass in a little Fiat on my forecourt. Or the woman who pulled into the garage while her car was on fire. Or the woman who’d driven 4 miles on a flat tyre but ‘only thought the wheel was loose’. Or the 2 women who asked if they were on the right road to Scarborough ( i’m in Durham, they’d driven from Harrogate. Check the map)Posted 4 years ago

I realised this evening that I’d being riding my whippet for 6 months with the brakes the ‘wrong’ , or US, way around. The avid lever is symmetrical and I must have swapped them when I changed the bars a while back.Posted 4 years ago
Only realised as I was trying to fit a longer stem and cursing that the rear brake hose wasn’t long enough 😳flyingmonkeycorpsMember
There’s a lad I sometimes see on my commute that rides a sustrans type trail (old railway) for about 15 miles into town, the opposite way to me, who wears full knee / shin guards. Now far be it from me to judge him for the protection he deems appropriate – I wear a helmet, but a lot of folks don’t. Horses for courses.
What was a bit odd was when I saw him riding home wearing only one of his knee / shin pads…Posted 4 years ago
