    Whilst the missus was bathing the little one, I thought I'd get on with waxing one of my alloys in the dining room. The woman had the :wtf: look when she came down stairs! lol, I just carried on anyways, taking no notice. Second stage was waxing the inside of the rim, the woman gave me a double :wtf::wtf: this time round, then said 'you spend more time and effort on those stupid alloys than you do me' lol.... I think I'm in the doghouse tonight. :laugh:

    Here's a sneak preview anyways.

    Its a brilliant idea to drink on a school night.
    Getting up the next day is the bad idea.

    I got told off for putting car stuff in the dish washer.

    Morning all,

    Just got back from my pre-holiday hair cut, sail on Saturday counting down the hours :yahoo:

    Not sure what is on the books today but I'm pretty much up to date with everything, so if the clients stay quiet, I may be in for a nice quiet day.

    Dane sorry to hear that you didn't get the job, keep your chin up - there'll be a better one along.

    The wife texted me this morning asking when I'm going to stop spending money on the car or at least slow down.
    I can't think of a answer to that apart from "When I'm dead."
    I don't think thats the best come back but it gets the point a cross.

    That's quite good.

    All these parking aids are just helping people out and nobody will be able to parallel park the old fashioned way in a few years. That new ford parks itself for you! Women of the future will be f*cked

    Hopefully women of the future will start developing as many electrical aids as a car,so then we can tune them to how we want them!

    My standardised response for those questions are 'When you stop buying makeup, having hair cuts that cost £100, and stop going out on the lash'.

    End of conversation.

    I like that response Welly.

    My haircut cost me £8 and you can tell it's been done. The mrs comes back after parting with £80 and her hair looks the same!

    As for makeup! £12 for mascara WTF

    EXACTLY my point dude. It's a winner. How can they moan about spending money on cars, when they are just as bad on sh1t like that?

    What about our A4s, A3s or current BMW 7s or the A1.
    Will they ever be a classic car?

    Well as my Mrs is self funding and earns the same as me - I don't have that problem :cool:

    I'm just waiting on a group buy on a Miltek as I just can't justify paying full price for one.

    £8 hair cut for me too.

    LOL, wish mine was that simple. I really struggle to find the time to get to the hairdressers, and that's damn annoying.
