I'm having a REALLY bad day.

I went down to get the boat to get the wheelbearings changed and forgot the trailerboard extension and the pump, so had to come back.

Went back, got boat,was coming along dual carriageway about half a mile from the trailer centre and there was a loud crunch from the back.

The wheelbearing had collapsed. Carried on at 2mph with hazards on to Swindon Trailer centre and 400 yards away the wheel fell off the trailer. Luckily STC are sound and came and sorted it!

I think I've been caught on the bus lane cameras too-it was the safest way to get to the trailer centre after the bearing collapsed.

Arse.

BTW why is it that the most retarded assholes surface when you've broken down?

Had 2 people stop and start giving me shyt and got driven into by a Prospect foundation van which then drove off! It's got big dents all the way down the side of it now where I punched it after he ran into me.

Matt, Bad luck.

Hope you slowed a few empty smelly buses up.

I did that.

Got a load of abuse from bus drivers too.

I'm not sure HE saw it (or ME) that way(he hit ME not the car or boat)! I did a fair bit of damage... It was quite visible in 3 places as he drove off. I didn't realise quite how hard I can hit things when I'm angry

You're not wong there!

We broke down on a minor road in Cornwall a couple of years ago. Unfortunately it wasn't far after a bend, but there really wasn't anything we could do as the road narrowed further along. No power at all so no hazard lights even.

Lost count of how many people tooted or shouted 'nice place to park, mate' or 'why don't you get off the fkn road' Sadly not much right of reply when they're sailing past at 40-50mph.

So I'm glad you got the van - makes me feel better about all the tossers we had that day!

I wouldn't have minded that kind of abuse!

All I got was 'Have you lost the sea then mate'
and 'Oi-your wheel's fallen off!'
