Nipping into town for a chip butty is probably frowned on now as well.

On that basis, Lowestoft should ban red cars:

I'll bet there is an app that will get you a chip butty delivered these days instead.

The witness statement is hilarious.

Probably.

Bet the chip butties were better in the 90s, though. Everything else was, apart from my bank balance

Wahoo! Just got confirmation that we can stay in our rental for another year. 5% increase in rent, but with the market the way it is, the house is a bit of a bargain anyway. Plus takes away the hassle of finding something else and the cost of moving

This is laughably irrelevant but what this is the 'smile' thread ...

Anyway, I just heard from my wife that they are putting in a roundabout on a stretch of road that we use quite regularly to get to the shops. I'm a sad bastard but I'm quite looking forward to that

They have a few across the border in Wisconsin; they follow the same absolute priority rule as in the UK. Quite honestly, even here where they aren't typical, they work better than a 4-way stop, which is what is being replaced here.

At rush hour, it gets backed up quite quickly so I think a roundabout is a smart choice for this one. I hope it works and we get a few more

The best thing is, my wife is looking forward to getting to use it!
