  1. What grinds your gears ,blow your top,makes your blood boil,fly off the handle,blow a fuse etc.
    a favorite one of mine is when delivering to a new farm with a artic i will all ways ring ahead to see that the access is OK and that i can turn round and nearly all ways the reply comes yes mate had a artic in here last week,so you know when you get to the farm entrance and your greeted by said farmer and his teleporter and chain that things are not as they should be.Oh you wont be able to get through entrance without my assistance pulling trailer round as you turn!now 99 times out of 100 the farmers spot on with what he tells you but the 1% who stretch the truth or do not realize that artics have grown in the last 30 years just like their kit they use,and when it goes tits up they nearly all ways say the chap that was here last week managed to turn round OK ,yes my fault again!:mad:

    More than likely a steering axle tipper or similar trailer.

    Main thing that get's my goat is people not putting tools back after using them or breaking mirrors or such like and not owning up about them.

    people who buy stuff off ebay, you send them an invoice, never hear from them, send them messages, nothing. Relist it, then they give you negative feedback.

    reminds me of a large potato growing outfit near ely who had a fleet of hired mcormics a few years back, all driven by easter europeans cating tates, ever single one of them sat it the cab with a high vis jacket on and the back window open, even in the rain. Know im old school at like to have back window open when im ploughing, but even i shut it when its raining!

    Agree with the phone calls during the evening. I now get one of my sons to answer the phone. He was talking for ten minutes to one bloke last week before telling him that he didn't want a pension as he's only twelve.
