Gross Stupidity!

It is an offence in this country to use your mobile phone whilst driving so we all have to admit ‘Yes we have done that and we know it’s against the law so we don’t do it now’ Some of us are lucky enough to have Bluetooth installed in our cars, in our case we could answer up to 20 enquiries about ‘where is today’s Car Boot’ just travelling from Longdowns to Mitchell of Newquay so the mobile is vital for our business, your customers.
The same law applies to any and all public events including our Car Boot Sales and I get totally pissed off by some of the ignorant people who are speaking of their bloody mobiles whilst driving towards me and members of our teams and it is the height of bad safety manners. On Thursday a woman was driving towards me yak-yacking “I am just driving in the field now” she is shouting with her head off with her head cocked to one side holding the mobile she looked like someone who was not in control of either herself or the car or both the SB!! So I stopped the car and the queue and made the lady put the phone down before she is parked into the selling field. Had the lady been caught so red-handedly by the police she would have received a hefty fine plus 5 points off her licence? No mobile call is worth the risk of possible disqualification and you are not important enough to ‘have to interrupt you’re driving’ to make some stupid call or to answer a caller and probably it’s about sod all in the first place.

Some very brave kids stood with signs to show to drivers who were seen driving whilst on the phone, the signs STOP TALKING on THE PHONE! Those kids were representing one of their school friends who was killed by a driver distracted by his worthless mobile. I know of a most pretty young lady who drove into a tree ‘whilst texting her friend’ I felt sorry for the tree because that tree could have been another school friend to mourn my lovers!

Car Boots Cornwall has a Public Liability Insurance cover for all of our events and we pay expensively for the safety of our buyers and sellers alike everyone is covered within that Insurance. It is our responsibility to ensure that public safety is at all times a priority with so much traffic and people arriving to our events. The biggest risk is the moving queues of sellers who drive their vehicles towards us to be shown where to sell.
On Saturday at Mitchell whilst parking a continuous line of traffic I noticed a car driving towards me and a boy of about 7 years old was actually running alongside the car hanging onto the drivers door much to the amusement of his parents Mr & Mrs Idiot-FFS, I shouted at the kid to leave the door alone and as the car got nearer I made the boy move away from his car and the moving traffic. The mother said ‘We don’t need you to tell him what not to do that is our job’ “Madam, that is gross stupidity to allow the boy to hang on to a moving car he could have gone under the wheels and if you do not like the rules here then we will give you a complete refund and you can GO NOW in the interest of public safety”

Another stupid idea is for drivers (always the men folkers) to sit their kids on their lap whilst driving in a queue of moving traffic, you have read me bitching on before about this but it happens all the time where you some idiot father who allows his kid to steer the car whilst daddy is grinning like something not right in the head and his bleeding kid is certainly not looking where he is going cos he is looking to see ‘who is looking at me?’ FFS! It only takes ‘kidder’ to turn the wheel violently (as we know kids can) and we could have a serious accident on our hands and maybe daddy has to go to hospital for brain surgery or an operation to wipe the stupid grin of his mug!!

I must apologise (but I won’t) if anyone is offended by some of my rudeness which is much enjoyed by fellows of our CBC Community, however several days after I have written any blog I will read the article and it is like news to me that I do not remember writing it in the first place, such is the power of Cannabis my lovers but it does help to get rid of my pains in the early hours of each day, peace perfect peace!

Ps; I have Cervical Spondylosis, Derriford Hospital said to have an operation there would be a 30% chance that the operation would not be successful. That was several years ago and then I went to the Caribbean, St Kitts but that’s another story my lovers!
