    The club is quite exclusive and no doubt has a couple of alcoholics...

    I must be dyslexic. I couldn't understand a word of this post. I think that pisses me off.

    I got the welcome to management today. Employee wants to change her day at work but I don't want her too as it will make it hard on another employee. A few months ago i was on their level. Now i have to be the arsehole who says sorry stiff ****.

    Supervisory roles suck if you're half decent , morally.

    My current team lead says , I'm waiting to see your full potential/ What you did at the last company.
    Me = ( thinking to myself) , I just want to do a job an go home knowing I've done that = a good job an enjoyed / sort of / the day and who I've worked with .

    Doesn't piss me off, bug me or annoy me as the thread title suggests
    But every bloke I've ever known or had to deal with named Trevor has been a dead set wanker
    For the life of me I just can't figure out why, maybe being a wanker just comes with having that name...….Who knows really

    This is sort of uncanny. Back in the day there was a deli in my suburb run by a guy called Trevor. He was very unpopular. Probably because his Galaga arcade games were 40c not 20c .Hence the deli sign placed on the side of the road had the token “Trevor wanks” graffitied in black texta.

    Trevor wanks.....:):):):):):)
    Brings back memories, as I spent many hours at my local takeaway shop playing Galaga…..Was a kick arse video game back in the day
    I also remember that it was only 20 cents per game, not 40

    Since about 1970, I bought the latest motoring magazines every month, because I was interested in cars, and they helped form an opinion about my next purchase. The writers (Peter Robinson and Bill Tuckey especially) were able to convey in words how a car handled, felt, good and/or bad, and what the ownership would be like.
    About 15 years ago, I started to be more selective, only buying the mags with the latest Aussie models, and about 2012 only those which featured a ‘special’ Aussie model, and nothing since Holden's demise. But I continued to read online tests of whatever was there.

    I have just read MOTOR mag’s ‘BMW M135i xDrive vs Mercedes-AMG A45 S comparison’ and realised that I have no idea of what they are writing about, and consequently their writing is just boring words.
    The cars are so technically and electronically advanced, the various ‘driving modes’ described overwhelm basics, and all I can think is ….. “If any, or all of this electronically controlled stuff failed, would the car go and handle like a HD Holden.”

    So this is what bugs me (etc), there appears that driving 'enjoyment', is now dependant on a computer, not input from an analogue human who should know the man and machine capabilities ……………………. or, am I just old, jaded and grumpy ?

    Me too. Lost interest in car mags years ago.
    Road tests became mostly of totally irrelevant and unaffordable cars.

    I used to buy at least five motoring magazines, my problem with Just Commodores and Street Machine was too much same old, same old. I only occasionally bought Wheels as they either inventing stories or had too much I wasn't interested in. I still buy Corvette Magazine, pity I can't afford one and Hot Rod magazine. I get Hot Rod Magazine by subscription, it costs me about $80 for 3 years. They recently had an article on valve springs with assistance from Comp Cams. It was very helpful and I have recently bought some beehive springs from them.

    I ride on the track and used to watch old car race as well as race my 76 RD. The old school racers are where skill comes into play. I see blokes out there now tearing up the track on moderns. But I reckon put them in an old bike or car with very little suspension adjustment and no computer assistance and then we would really see who has the skill.
    Racing a HG Monaro or XC Coupe or an old RD, that's where its mostly driver and little machine.

    Figjam,

    You're definitely not alone mate, I could have written your letter word for word (except for the HD line. I love HD's). I used to buy Wheels, Motor Manual, various US mage, Street Machine, every month until around the late 70's, then cut back, but Wheels was always purchased. Since local manufacture ceased, I only buy Just Holdens. The interest I had years ago just doesn't exist anymore.
    As for modern vehicles with every electronic aid ever invented interest factor zero. I'm like you, the mumbo jumbo is as boring as batsh1t to read and when something goes wrong, it invariably affects multiple functions. Old and grumpy? Nah, just long for the simple times we once knew.
