    The opposite of the grinding your gears thread is the aim...

    When the taxi driver makes a balls of calculating your change and leaves an extra fiver

    When some twat tries to undertake you on the motorway but you trap him in the inside lane behind even slower traffic. Love this one. I'd go faster as well but but we're in a train of traffic you dick, just wait it out

    When you get 7 chicken nuggets instead of 6 in Mc Donald’s.

    Handing in a crisp €10 note in a packed pub at Christmas and expecting only coinage in change, but for some holiday miracle you see a note coming your way

    When you put up reams of outside christmas lights , light up and motion figures, wire the whole lot of them up and hit the switch to turn them on.......and every single one of them lights up first time.

    Screwdriver drop...exit the stage like you won the lotto.

    Handing a 50 into a bar in Dublin and getting change back is nearly a miracle these days!

    The way my rest days fell in work this year meant the 4 days annual leave I had left was enough for me to finish on the 21st and not be back until the 2nd of January. My longest Christmas break since I left school.Merry Christmas.

    Got 3 questions right in a row watching University Challenge the other night. They were all on Sex and the City,but 3 in a row is 3 in a row.

    That's a serious achievement even if it was on your chosen specialist subject!!
    I got 3 correct a good few years ago on rugby league . The team didn't know any of them. Was walking around like a smug prick for the rest of the week .I would be doing well to get 1 a season after that

    A story I have probably bored my friends to death at this stage.

    Was at a quiz many years ago in Galway. It was wine related and I had not a clue to the answers for the first nine questions. Q10 was 'what wine making chateau in Bordeaux is also the same name as an American car', I said Pontiac just loudly enough for the team beside us to hear what I said while writing Cadillac on the answer sheet. Our team won 10-9 and got a very decent prize. The team beside us overheard the wrong answer.
