It’s Clingfilm, Not Sheet Metal Plating…

A teenage girl has spoken of her anger and embarrassment after she found her Fiat Punto wrapped up in cling film.
Anger and embarrassment that would have been minor and just between her, her relatives & friends, of course.

Except, in going to the local paper, that has now magnified a hundredfold, as (potentially) the whole connected world now knows she finds puncturing clingfilm difficult…
.. on the last day of term (Wednesday, May 14) she decided to leave the car park in Danson Road and go for celebratory drinks at the Turnpike Pub in Welling town centre.
The next day the teenager returned to find the car wrapped in cling film, trapping lots of her school books she needed to use to revise for her impended A Level exams.
‘Trapping them’ for how long..? The 0.12 seconds it takes for her to slit the stuff with a pair of nail scissors or even, perhaps, her nails?
Miss Moredaunt told News Shopper: "I laughed about it afterwards but at the time it was just ridiculous. I could understand if it was a mate playing a prank but for a random person to do it is just very strange.
"I just hope these people don't do it to an elderly person who really needs their car in an emergency."
I think the average ‘elderly person’ is a bit more resilient & resourceful than today’s teenager, sweetie…

Poor lamb. Lucky her exams were only "impended".

After my best friend got married 20 or so years ago, his mother filled my car with sack loads of dry, out of date popcorn. There were still odd bits wafting out of the air vents some 18 months later when I sold it. (No I still have no idea what she was thinking, and its too late to ask).

Well, I suppose if you can't have your fifteen minutes of fame for doing something clever, might as well have it for looking like a thicko.

My car once had "I suck cock" on the boot over a weekend...shit happens, just get over it and get even, needless to say I had the last laugh.

Unfuckingbelieveable!

Both myself and Mrs Bucko have had that done to us when changing jobs.

Mine was on the car park at the pub where I was working. I couldn't get the damn stuff off for ages as I was laughing till my ribs hurt.

On an Army course I found one day my course-mates had completely covered my car in Post-it notes, the fuckers. Much to the amusement of the RSM.

Wasted about 2 hours drinking time to get them all off without letting one drift off and thus get charged with littering.

Evidence that lack of intelligence does not disbar A-level candidature.

And that News Shopper's deputy news editor uses archaic language.

Poor girl. I think a job in the Third Sector beckons, one has to be thick as shit to work in it anyway, so she is part-qualified. All she needs a Common Purpose course on how to be even fucking more stupid and she's good to go.

Construct a sentence using the word "archaic"..


"OK, we can't have archaic, and eat it."

Good job the poor lamb wasn't in the car when some wag crept up from behind and applied Duct tape to the door openings...

Re Justin's "popcorn" story - I once got well and truly pranked by a so called colleague who wedged an old fish head in the heater outlet of my works van. For two days in the middle of summer I had to drive whilst hanging my head out of the window. Naturally, turning the fan on just made things worse!

XX she decided to leave the car park in Danson Road and go for celebratory drinks at the Turnpike Pub....XX

Drunk in charge.

Just because you are not driving, does NOT mean you are "legal!"

:-D :-D

Rightwinggit said...

Correct. If she still had the keys on her...

Oh, hang on don't they also have to prove intent to drive?

My Dad had a Reliant Robin, he once found it turned 90 degrees on it's rear end. It took me only a slight shove to right it. It really did look like a space shuttle ready to lift off.

"Both myself and Mrs Bucko have had that done to us when changing jobs."

It would probably be called 'bullying' now!

"Evidence that lack of intelligence does not disbar A-level candidature."

As if we needed any more!
