I don't complain about her 4 barking dogs that drive the village crazy and I am not one to really be bothered about shit like that, as I accepted that she has 4 yappy firkin dogs. Life goes on.
I parked my Chinese uncles lexus out the front of my house last week to give it a wash as it was lobbed on me via ' The inlaws ' because he got into a bit of trouble in China and has been held in remand for about 3 months.
Now, the car hasn't been driven much and it only just started when I took it away from my uncle inlaws house, and left it parked in our village car park 100 metres from our house. When I went to move it to our dead end driveway access to wash 3 months worth of bird poo and stack of leaves that had accumulated, I left the car running while I gave it a quick wash. I only left it running so the alternator could put back enough charge in the battery so I could start it again, we are talking 15 minutes etc.
She storms out of her house and has a big bitch and moan at me that I was running the " noisy " carnear her house and I just looked at her with a why don't you fuck off look on my face lol . I then proceeded to explain to the old bint, that if I turn the engine off too soon, there is a good chance that it wont start and that I didn't have any means to jump start the car at the house, that if it doesn't start it will have to stay there until the following day for me to get a 12V mobile jump start pack from my office, so for the sake of 15 minutes of idling the very quiet lexus, that it isn't a big deal. well it was to her as she bitched about pollution and all kinds of emotional twat waffle, so I just shut it down to appease the bag.
Luckily it started again so it was all good, but she really is rubbing me up the wrong way lately, I just don't get people like her. Anyway, we aren't on speaking terms now, I think I told her to " get laid you stupid old cow " or something along those lines, so it's turned out for the best, I reckon hahaha.
