Can’t help but notice that finally, Word Press have forced their changes upon us – their ‘improved’ blogging experience will certainly add nothing for me but no doubt share my data with their paying clients. And of course, being a grumpy old git, I will struggle to find everything now that it has all been changed around for no benefit to me.
Modern life can be suck a ball ache.
That said, the other day I had to chuckle – I got a speeding ticket. Sure, my checkered past of high speeds in the UK is well documented but this one really was priceless.
I had to drive the boss’s car back from Nice airport – alone….!
A very nippy Mini Cooper Works, convertible. Naturally I gave it a bit of welly but I had forgotten a couple of things. Normally in a UK plated car, speeding tickets don’t get issued. Sadly this time, I was in a German registered car and Germany agrees to share vehicle details with the rest of the EU – unlike the UK.
So, at the boss’s HQ in Germany, they received the notice and forwarded it on to me. It was all quite civil if I am honest – 126 in a 110 and a 45€ fine, payable on line in just a few seconds. Easy.
It was almost an enjoyable experience.
Oh the joys of Christmas
