    90 QUID CLAMP

    Went down to the inland revenue today to collect some forms. There is a massive car park outside there offices which i parked in. Walked into the office and i see a sign saying about clamping so i went inside and asked about it. 2 Mins had gone by and there was noone available to speak so i went back outside to find some @#%$5 taking a picture of my car. I got closer and it was clamped with a 90 pound relaese fee. 3 days wages on a clamp. This %$&%$ must have been putting the clamp on my car as soon as i bloody got out. You would think they would have to wait at least 5 mins before they can clamp you.

    It was only monday that the works van got a ticked in london while i was loading it up. Little hitlers come running round the corner punching nu,mbers into there machine and then slapped it on the screen. I tried talking to these two traffic wardens but i had a job trying to understand them. I wouldnt suprise me if they didnt even have a visa.

    I really dont know why i should keep within the law anymore.

    I had that at my local post office depo

    Locked the car and turned my back to have someone say I wouldn't part that there and by the time I turned back again the thief's already had the chain around the wheel. No real sign's around either

    Feel's more like you have been robbed hey?
