With the ever increasing costs of power there will be more and more use for services and products that monitor and feedback our usage and consumption of energy. With the fluffy first 10 years of this century, we convinced ourselves money just fell out from anywhere we demanded and expected it to come from, reality check, we now need to start being responsible for our lives. Enough of expecting others to do it for us, and relying on handouts. Perhaps people will soon realize it is OK to switch off a light, put on extra clothing, or even just stop wasting money and complaining about it.
Yes, I know there are general issues and problems out there, and many are short of money, but when you see people filling up at one petrol station, when the one across the road sells diesel at cheaper prices you have to ask yourself who is at at fault for them being short of money.
Then you get these morons that accelerate and brake repeatedly in traffic queues, and drive right behind you in icy conditions. One of these stupid idiots has just rammed my business partner in a traffic queue, she’d 6 points on her licence already, and was 26 years of age and drove a BMW. enough said. She was more about image than use of intelligence. Safe to drive?
Off the soap box, soon !
Yesterday I took Mike to the neck specialist, as he has still to get his vehicle returned following and interruption in his life by the stupid BMW driver. On the way, the sat nav took us down snowy side streets… at school leaving time.
Parents, “stop walking your young kids down the roads, getting hit by a car is more dangerous than them falling over”.
Drivers “If you want to talk on your mobile phone, please stop first, then after you’ve stopped and got out of your car to have a fag, don’t stand in the road, stand on the pavement. You just became a pedestrian when you got out of your car”
Children “Don’t run in and out of traffic, we allow all form of morons to drive, one of them will happily snap your bones” … and most likely will not be insured.
If you think I’m exaggerating, I’m not, one of my friends wives was driven into as a pedestrian and is lucky to be alive. The pointer of the car (driver seems a bit of stretch, since you are supposed to keep the car under control as a driver) will probably feel sorry for a few months, my friend’s wife will suffer for the rest of her life, because they refused to drive responsibly.
