    That's how I got mine off an expat. Bringing another car in from another country creates problems as when you re register it the Greek authorities want to charge you as though its new. They've been told and fined many times by the EU about this practice but they carry on, because they make more from the import duty than the fines imposed.
    I don't like it but I do understand why so many ex pats drive around in cars they have brought over from the UK and not registered them. No tax, no mot, no insurance.

    A male work colleague has showed up wearing red trousers FFS.

    Surely this is totally unacceptable?

    (I should point out that I am not playing one day cricket for Lancashire. If I was it would be ok).

    This dress down policy has gone too far. I'm putting on my pink mankini tomorrow to prove a point.

    It's not me, but yes I do dress like that. It really pisses off my 70 year old Marxist mate who still lounges around in Dad jeans and a Pink Floyd tee shirt. He keeps muttering "Fucking Tory-wear."

    I walk around like everything is fine but deep down, in my shoe, my sock is sliding off.

    No notifications either? I thought I was here all alone due to a meltdown of ameggedon proportions.

    You choose your clothes to piss off your mate?

    Just weird. Explains a lot. But weird.

    Played the main square in Lefkas town with the band last night. Eventually.
    Missus had gone up to the Belgian's for drinks and summat to eat for the afternoon. I've got ready and loaded my gear in the car. I can't find the car keys. I then realise silly bollox has both sets in her handbag, and to make things even better she hasn't taken her phone with her. I then start ringing round everyone I can think of who might be enjoying this fucking tiffin at said Belgian's. Half aren't there and the other half aren't answering their phones.
    Finally get through to the Belgian woman who doesn't speak very good English , she can't understand what I'm ranting about for 10 minutes and then tells me said missus has left on foot about a minute ago.
    I decide to jump on the scooter and go and look for her. There are 2 tracks from the Belgian's to our house, guess which one I chose?
    I've then got nobhead (Dutch keyboard player) on the phone. Where are you?
    Finally made the square with minutes to spare totally stressed out.
    Things are a bit frosty in our house today. Got another gig at one of the big taverna's tonight. I'm hoping things go slightly smoother.

    Some **** has broken my car mirror. Happened a few years back to the one on the other side as well. Both times it's the mirror on the pavement side. I thought I heard a noise last night but assumed it was the neighbours or something.

    Does anybody have a home cctv system? I think it's about time I invested. There's too many ***** around these days.

    I'm more annoyed that people do this than I am bothered about the car. It's a 2000 Mk4 Golf with 150k miles on the clock, it's taken a beating and still going strong. Probably why the twat has done it and none of the other cars down the street. At least this time I've been able to stick it back on, the other time they must have stamped on it or something and it took the whole lot off and I had to get a new one from the breakers (luckyily these cars are dime a dozen so plenty of cheap parts)

    Last time that happened to me the ***** did both sides.

    Ian's Key post reminds Ive been wanting to rant about car keys - the cost of them. Upgraded the missus car a few weeks ago. It's a remote key it has a blade with it, but that's for opening the door in an emergency you can't start it without the remote. If the battery on your key goes while youre out you're a bit stuffed. The car came with two keys. Missus is going away for a days, so I suggest she take the spare as well but she tells me it doesn't work. I assume it' sthe batter so replace it. DOesn't make a diference at all.

    So, a bit of searching on the interweb seems to suggest a flat battery can lead to the key-code needing to be reset but good news you can do this in the car. You have to use the blade to open the car, then put the remote into the slot and press a button for 10s. Put the blade into the lock, it doesn't turn. Check it against the working key, its not the key to her car!

    So I phone the dealer we got the car from, he denies any culpabiiity. Passed on both keys in good faith. ****.

    I phone a main dealer, how much a spare key? £200! Fucking hell, that 2.5% value of the car! They can fuck right off.

    So, start looking around at auto-locksmiths, cheapest so far £170. This is fucking ridiculous.

    It's a licence to print money.

    Technology eh!

    My missus has been down the road and said a few cars have had their mirrors knock or damaged. My area isn’t too bad but this happens every once in a while.

    Yep, it is.

    I got my wife a new car before Christmas.

    Made sure it had both keys and we tested both worked before we left the dealer when we picked it up.

    They are so expensive, even for non-premium cars (hers is a Ford).
