This could be me if today does not go to plan... Doing this in support of a friend who lost her brother in a bike accident. If anyone is feeling generous.

Posted a rant in my IAM group about how the "discounted" IAM insurance is full of shit. Amongst the people agreeing are two that have taken it upon themselves to lecture me that I need to consider that cheap is not better and how I'll regret it if I make a claim.

Yeah, because insurers are warm fluffy kittens if you pay them a couple of hundred quid more who just love paying out.

Talk about drinking the kool aid.
One doubled down today

"Worked with this industry all my life in my career. Loads of experience. Know what I'm talking about. One thing anyone in the know will tell you is you never get the cheapest or the most expensive".

I pointed out that genuinely, it was the most expensive I've had so based on his rule and advice....

Was told snottily it's a free country and my choice.

Yeah, I know.

Well, I'd say he followed the instructions perfectly. It wasn't left safe.

I bet the guy signed it for you.
Doesn't say anywhere "customer signature required..." :P
All my food only eat vegetables. So, I'm an indirect vegetarian :cool:

All problems have a solution.
You just need to figure it out :)

I watched him on my CCTV just put it there and walk off. I'm slightly tempted to claim it was never received :twisted:

I'd like to suggest the vespa driver on vauxhall bridge today. 50cc, rattling along. It's dark but he's a half helmet and sunnies on. No mirrors and cutting up everyone. He got caught behind a bus and decided it was appropriate to mount the kerb and drive on the path for a while.

I guess he beats the nob blowing all his grass cuttings to cover the road today.

When I pointed out his folly, he told me he was going to finish blowing them into the ditch across the road.

No wonder that road always floods...
