    What about buying the child care credits at source saving 40% that cetainly wasn't around when I was younger... (I thought that came under the tax credits but after a bit of a look-see it doesn't!)

    Re: Grrrr - Dont some people just p!ss you off...

    All I know MB is that I'm 400 a month for childcare and get zero help from the family tax credit system.
    We get the 16 a week child benefit and that's that.
    I'm not a big earner and neither is my missus.
    Again,I'm not complaining,merely correcting the common misconception,fuelled by misleading goverment propoganda,that parents get "all sorts of benefits".

    I know nothing of the child care credits you speak of.

    I must admit I like TuffLittleNut's idea that you all owe me some money - all contributions greatfully received.

    Only joking..... Your all providing me with hours of enjoyment just contributing to Audi-Sport.net. Keep up the good work. Mind you I do try and read some threads, most on another forum that shall remain nameless but I think it's something to do with Tyres, I do wonder where all the money spent on education and the teaching of English went. Perhaps I just come from an earlier era when standards were much higher.

    As someone said earlier in this thread we're all different and have differing views on many things but the thing that we all have in common is the love for our Audis (bowfer excepted who hates his or at least his DSG)

    Have a look here: http://www.busybees.com/ looks like you can save a few quid if both parents are working but it looks like your comapnies need to register for it. My sister also gets this but she's a teacher so it kind of figures they would be able to...

    I'm prepared to sell my kids so that those without can also have the opportunity to take advantage of all the fantastic benefits afforded by HM Government.

    Anyone know what the going rate is for used kids these days? I've tried Parkers and that's no use. I've got two boys and I was thinking that it's about time to change them anyway. Not sure about the colour yet but I'll be looking for something a bit more economical.

    Jakey GTi - 2003 model with four wheel drive. Goes like the clappers but a bit unpredictable. Squeaks a bit at high revs.

    Ben SE - 2001 model in pink. Solid and reliable. High spec. Good runner. FSH.

    Re: Grrrr - Dont some people just p!ss you off...

    Personal digs aside, and whether or not having children is a good idea (!), this has been an interesting thread. It's proved, yet again, that the mind of the motorist is not uniform whatsoever. What seems perfectly acceptable to one driver is just totally mindless to another.

    My blood boils when I see a driver meandering in the middle lane of a motorway when the nearside is clear. Yet, although I don't really have a problem where people park their car, and certainly wouldn't expect it to be vandalised as a result, it's still not acceptable behaviour to others.

    So perhaps could I politely suggest that the moral of this thread is this: all posters to our forum have completely different views on motoring standards, but we should all agree never to vandalise each others cars, whatever they've done wrong.

    Agree with the bit about meanderers in the middle lane(!) - I'm a serial 'undertaker' (apologies to those who disagree but tough!)

  17. #96

    Re: Grrrr - Dont some people just p!ss you off...

    I'm with you on that one TQS. If people don't like being 'undertaken' then the should pull over into the left hand lane.

    Does anyone regularly use the M42 - when does the 'No overtaking by HGVs' apply. Went along there on Saturday and I assume the large square matrix signs light up when it applies. It's just that it makes so much difference to the traffic flow in Germany I think it should apply to more roads over here.

    Re: Grrrr - Dont some people just p!ss you off...

    So let me summarise the thread so far...

    1. I am p!ssed off that someone took it upon them selves to vandalise my car.
    2. It's ok to vandalise a car if it's parked in a family bay. I'd just like to point out my car wasn't park in one of these bays at the time of the incident!
    3. If you don't like kids your an idiot or a prick although this was later revised.
    4. If you like to keep your car clean and shiny then it is because it is a kid substitute
    5. You should only get married to have kids.
    6. If you happen to get married and don;t want kids your "odd"
    7. If you drive in the middle lane expect to be undertaken.

    Did I miss anything out?

    Edited: I missed out the married/no kids/being odd...

  22. #101

    Re: Grrrr - Dont some people just p!ss you off...

    marriedblonde - you forgot to mention HGVs overtaking each other and totally blocking the road.

    What else can we find between us that p!isses us off... must be car or driving related though or do we think we've aired our views enough for now ?

    Badly adjusted headlights
    Cars with less than the required lights
    Drivers who stop unnecessarily at roundabouts
    Cyclist with no lights
    Speed humps
    Drivers who will insist on doing 70 or less in the outside lane and refuse to pull over to the left.
    HGVs that pull out and overtake on a two lane road - one doing 56mph and the other doing 57mph thus blocking the road for miles

    Just a few to be going on with...

    people who drive at 30 through all the twisty bits then accelerate when the only overtaking opportunity arises.

    people who cut you up when you've been stuck in a queue of traffic waiting for your turn to overtake.

    Have we had 'drivers using the left hand lane at an island when they're leaving via the last exit which is almost certainly to the right'? Thus preventing anyone else leaving the island at all....

    And of course the ancient by-law which allows anyone over 80, wearing a Trilby hat and driving a mint Austin Allegro with only 1850 miles on the clock to do 12mph straight down the middle of the road!

    Forgot about those that do 20mph along a road which you can't overtake on when it's clear and 50 would be ideal. Then they get to a busy junction and just go straight over cutting everybody up as if they're in a bloody hurry! Worst still it then takes you five minutes to get across the same junction and then, just as you're about to explode, you catch the dickhead up again - still doing a steady 20.

    Also forgot the bloke in a cranky old transit that pulls out in front of you from a side road causing you to test your ABS to it's fullest extent and then turns off again 20 yards later....

    Re: Grrrr - Dont some people just p!ss you off...

    We've all forgot to mention probably the biggest thing rather than people that 'p!sses' us off - SPEED (REVENUE) CAMERAS in general and Mobile Camera Vans in particular.
