    Its got to a point now where I can't really handle the lack of stimulation, education, work, enjoyment and the fact that I ask for more work, to go on training courses or help out with projects and I just keep getting shot down all the time.

    Same here mate. I'm so bored of no stimulation, no interesting work that my motivation is at an all time low. I look forward to going home each day and getting on with jobs that interest me at home.

    Funny you should mention that! Some bloke threw 2 pint glasses (one full of stella) at my mate last weekend in the pub. He was battered and just decided to pick on my mate. He blocked one glass with his arm as it was heading for his face. The guy throwning the glasses was then politely asked to leave before he got the sh!t kicked out of him

    I wish I could be that bothered like you lot, but mine will get a wash, a hoover and maybe a polish. That's it.

    I have my car for abusing, and dirt is a side effect of this....

    I'm one of these people that would rather drive the car then clean it but it's well overdue a proper clean.

    You can't beat a good cleaning session and then a good drive in a nice clean car.

    What annoys me about a driving around in a freshly clean car is the amount of bugs i seem to hit, and then getting stuck behind an old diesel who decides to put their foot down shooting all that soot over my car. Not happy!

    It's the 100 mile drive to Kettering at 40mph that will kill me thinking of wrapping the car in cling film to keep it clean.

    There's nothing quite like a lovely clean interior with a new air freshener

    It's the feckers infront that put their windscreen spray on and soaks the front of your clean car
