    Aungier Street is blocked in Dublin city centre again... This is beyond ridiculous but luckily doesn't affect me at all.

    What are they protesting?

    They are being fed lies by Nazis looking to sew division and capitalise on a vacuum in social conversations.

    Forget calling them far right. The people behind these movements are the tip of the spear.

Like seriously how is this allowed? You can basically stand in the middle of the road in your local area blocking absolutely everyone and it's perfectly ok as long as you call this a "protest" ?
    I hate Aungier street nazis.

    I love the expression “rocket and feather”. I also love the correlation between the data below and my gas and electricity bills. I’m nearly certain they’re not 45% lower than a year ago.

    Cheers lads, If I could figure out multi quote it'd be great.

    I recently got upped to a new supervisor and it's great but I stupidly agreed to fill in my old role until they replace me. Let's just say it's fun working two jobs for the one cheque !

    I shouldn't complain but my old boss had fallen out of favour and is trying hard to get back to the table,often at our expense, undermining our efforts etc.

    The politicking getting in the way of real work!

    Meh first world problems I guess!

    My (Irish) neighbours have a never washed five year old Zanussi White Dacia Duster and one of them cargo bike thingys on the driveway. It would just depress the living jaysus out of you. But the German chap down the road has a nicely modded Mk5 estate Golf, the English fella across the street has a really nice commercial Discovery and one of them new Defenders, another English guy has a few Caravelles/Transporters that he seems to flip every now and then. Shared house with a bunch of Polish fellas a few houses away has what seems like every generation of 5-Series outside, changing frequently. French guy up the road has three hydropneumatic era Citröens, a Dutch fella a few streets away has one of them tiny Suzuki Carry vans and believe it or not a WW2 Willys jeep. I mean they're not really really nice cars etc but they're just that little bit different.
    Agreed. I see people moving to Ireland as a good thing both socially and economically.

    I attribute a lot of the negative aspects of our culture to us being historically insular or isolated (hence 'small-town attitude' side to our culture). People coming here with different perspectives, opinions and experiences can help our culture to expand and change (hopefully for the better)*.

    As you say, from an automotive perspective, just being different is good for people to see- there are other options out there!


    *There are also a lot of great things about our culture too but... we could do better like.

What sort of person would risk a head on collision instead of stopping for a less than a minute. It’s a good job I kind of anticipated it as it was on a straight stretch of road. I felt sorry for the runner as I must have deafened him with my horn and it was no fault of his.
    Yes but he got there first! (I think this is the mindset or they're a bit of a 'bungalow')

    I've a very controlling super at the min and need to keep stum to keep moving up !

    But I think dread is my default these days, it's sad as it's the role I've worked for, for years but one personality is driving me cracked!
