Stop the World - I can't take any more!!

The new van has Remis blinds on the windscreen and side windows.

It also has an iconic warning sign which says, "When the blinds are closed, do not drive."

It's not often I am lost for words, but this time . . . . . . .

But then again I well remember reading one of the notes that came with my electric razor that said ....

"Do not attempt to clean the razor when it is running."

.... and thinking "What kind of eejit would do that?"

The brush that was provided to clean the razor now looks really mangy ....

.... and I see the kind of eejit that would try and clean the razor when it was running every time I look in the mirror to shave! tap_fingers  tap_fingers  tap_fingers

Are there any instructions on how to open the blinds...... you could be there a while if you don't know how to do it?

Who here remembers the guy in the states who crashed his RV whilst he was at the back brewing up or something, his excuse was that he thought it'd be ok as he'd left it on cruise-control  scratch head scratch head

Then a while back I bought a pair of those 'tough' scissors, the type that are in a strong-sealed pack, on the back it said   'cut open with scissors' . confused0

Yes, I remember that  lol4 I think his excuse was it didn't say not to and have a feeling he might have won the case?

In Filey there is a dirt footpath/track and the council have just put up a sign saying 'Caution uneven surface' shrugg. I am inclined to think most dirt tracks may be uneven hugegrins
