Why, why and why? They are not on strike, only have voted for one if necessary. Then I believe they have to give a weeks notice.

These idiots are causing problems for the rest of us. Britain is a very selfish country these days.

I went from Ellesmere Port today on vapour to asda (my local and cheapest station!) and the que was stupid through the carpark. When finally got to a pump, noticed people filling cans and containers with fuel....STUPID!!! I Filled up, as i always do and the woman on kiosk said that it had been like that all morning and due to run out of diesel. one of my workers went to same couple hours later for fuel and sold out of diesel. FOOKWITS!!!!!
Comes to the push, i will run my van on 50 / 50 diesel and hydraulic oil....works but smokes like a pig. hydraulic oil is cheaper than diesel too!!!!

I was walking past a garage with loads of cars all waiting when one car went 'out of his line' when a space appeared in another. It was mean and unfair but I didnt expect what happened..it led to another man getting out of his car and swearing like mad at the place jumping motorist. Tempers really did flare and I expected fisticuffs at any moment.

All this panic buying... where will it end... violence the next step?

Wonder if I should avoid the post office now incase of people having stamp rage!

I took my petrol can to the garage today - but not panic buying. It was for the lawnmower !! Ran out with half the grass cut and be buggered if I am going to muck around syphoning petrol out of the car tank. However, you shoud have seen the 'scowl' looks I received filling a can.

I drove past the Texaco in Pasture road Moreton about 20 minutes ago and the queue was only just at the edge of the forecourt, which is not bad I suppose considering the idiotic behaviour going on.
