RRA1 is, let's say, unusual. I'll leave it at that. cat

I was waiting for you to chime in, FF. Insult me as much as you like (see if I care), just as long as you don't insult my friend RangeRover. Very Happy

Soggy Pringles!( And/or salty beer.) Not good. lol!

This topic was made for my next act of stupidity! Last Sunday the now-defunct blues band had a get-together to chat, eat and drink. My sax-playing friend needed a lift so he came to our house by tram to drive my car to the rhythm guitarist's house half an hour away. (I'm no hero behind the wheel, you see.) 

Anyway on the way back it was pissing with rain so I stupidly said I'd take him home first and drive the last quarter of an hour myself. Apart from having more to drink than even the Dutch police would have found acceptable, visibility was awful that night due to the downpour and I nicked the left front tyre on a treacherous piece of curb along the tramline. This was at the "mouse-hole", a narrow and poorly marked opening below a railway bridge where I'd burst the right front tyre a couple of years ago! There was no puncture this time and I drove on home cursing to myself.

After looking up the consequence of a blowout and getting a little nervous in case there had been some sort of internal damage, I got in touch with our car mechanic friend. He checked it this morning and it's fine. 

There are lessons to be learned from this. Thank you, thank you, my guardian angel. If we ever meet I'd give you a huge hug. I love you

Well, not recently (it must have been more than 30 years ago) but it may amuse you both.jocolor

Before we bought our range cooker--which can toast bread, among its many features--we had a simple electric pop-up toaster. At some point it must have offended me aesthetically so I filled the sink with soapy water, dunked the thing in it and gave it a good scrub inside and out. Even the fabric cord looked great afterwards (I'd removed it from the wall socket for easier cleaning). However, I think I must have dislodged something vital along the way as it never seemed to want to work after that, even when I followed the instructions to the letter. Oh well. study

Oooohh! I did that in France back in 2015 or '16, with disastrous results. We'd taken over my son's previous car and I misjudged the handbrake on a slope at a roadside cafe (I should have put it in gear anyway). When we came out, the car had vanished! Well, not exactly--to our horror we saw it had rolled down the slope in a wide arc and slammed into what transpired to be this young girl's brand new birthday present. Luckily there was a bilingual Belgian nearby who mediated between the two parties--the girl had threatened to call the police! Happily the insurance companies did the rest and we never heard anything more about it. There are times (many of them) when I feel I should never, ever get behind the wheel of any car! scratch

Our car survived--it's built like a tank. I'm sorry to say the birthday present was probably a Mini. Embarassed

Sorry, Rich, I just checked and it was a Renault. So you can relax again--and we're still friends!  Very Happy

Earlier today I was admiring the two sleek brown slugs on the path through our back garden. An hour later, when I went out to empty the trash I inadvertently trod on both of them. Crying or Very sad
