Kamikazee Tractor driver

Filed under: Uncategorized — cindygirl9 @ 10:26 am

You are probably thinking what does she mean by this title, well let me explain normally tractor drivers are slow, and really P*** you off when your in a  hurry because you get stuck behind this vehicle travelling and break neck 5 mile an hour speed spilling half the contents of its load in your direction whilst you travel behind. Only today I am reporting on a new breed of tractor driver, this one has serious attitude (bikers beware).  One evening  my husband and a few of his mates went for an evening ride through to Rye in East Sussex, anyway all was well they travelled the usual way, my husband went on only to arrive in Rye by himself, unsure where the rest were he telephoned to be told there was an accident, he didnt stop to hear the rest of the conversation putting the phone back in his pocket, he rode back to find his mates, they weren’t far up the road, in Udimore, when he arrived he was busy asking all, if they were alright, no one was hurt, this was the point where the story unfolds, you see he had travelled past the tractor, not really paying much attention as the tractor was heading in the opposite direction.  This isthe point where things change as the tractor driver decides he doesn’t like bikers and drives on the other side of the road, aiming for the rest of the riders, straight at them in fact forcing them to take evasive actions,this of course was met with some suprise and anger not just by the bikers concerned but also by the witnesses at the side of the road who could not believe their eyes. He scuffed one of the riders, and then as one of the other riders had parked and got off his bike to see what this guys problem was, he continued to knock over his brand new bike(I kid you not) he was still running it in. Obviously he has now seen red, and is absolutely mad as hell, his bike laying on the floor, he is screaming at the guy wanting to no what his problem is, unable to get his helmet off he is pulling the tractor apart at the side of the road, to stop the guy driving off without being made to pay for what he has just done, the Police arrive and defuse the situation.

The guy driving the tractor is being done for his actions, rightly so.

have you ever had a bad experience with a tractor?

Trails & Tribulations of British Rail travel

Filed under: Uncategorized — cindygirl9 @ 7:47 pm

Here we go, before you say anything I am not gonna winge, for an indefinate period and not really say anything. Today I had the misfortune of having to travel uptown to London, great a day out of the office, you might think, wrong! I had to attend a training course for a new piece of software that I had previously worked on in a previous workplace, (basically waste of time) but hey the powers that be said go so off I dutifully went. I boarded the train in Battle, and all was going well, even got a seat which at that early hour on the rat run is a major acheivement. Got to Waterloo, me not being familiar with train travel approached the girl in the info kiosk to ask a general direction question. Silly I no fancy thinking that the info kiosk was actually designed to help traveling customers, she had to put down her paper and answer me this,  probably for the first time actually caused a queue to form behind me, believe when I say this she wasnt happy, anyway she looked at my map said never heard of the place, glanced at me for almost a whole second without cracking a smile or anything and said next, I was dismissed, presumably helped. So I decided to find someone else to answer my question as time was now running out the meeting was due to start in 15 mins and I from what I could see was at least half an hour away, next stop another helpful kiosk, as there really isnt anyone else, only this time I come across Reg who has obviously worked for the railways for most of his life loves his job and I have to say it he was brilliant, pointed me in the right direction, and I proceeded to my destination, arriving half an hour late, although I didnt miss anything. The journey back was another funny incident, which I just have to share with you, everything fine I have made my way back via the tubes and got back to Waterloo to get the Battle train home, time getting on I realise I havent eaten anything since breakfast and decide to buy myself a packet of crisps from the trolley on the train, I hand the guy a £1 coin which I was given by the train gaurd in my change from my ticket, anyway a couple of minutes later he says “have you got another £1 coin please” at this point I’m thinking Bl**dy hell these crisps are expensive, wrong! apparently my £1 coin isnt shiney enough to go in his till he doesnt like dull £1 coins ( I kid you not) laugh me and three or four of the passengers who had heard my predicament could not contain ourselves, I did exchange the £1 coin, first and he disappeared down through the train to us lot wetting ourselves laughing, a guy in the other side of the isle was looking through his pockets to see if he had any dirty coins to see if he did it again on a re-run through the train with refreshments but he never came back.

Hello world!
