General Chat / karma???...wts th script
« on: 09:17, Sat 12 July 2008 »
well th other day i was out mukn around wiv th car and this girl pulls up next to me in tears..cryin bout she lost her dog and had i seen it??
i didnt so i said no...she ws so upset tht i told her a cpol places to chek and to give me her fone number if a seen it then id fone her.
she went away and realising how sh1tty i wld hav felt...i went up stair and asked my good lady to come wiv me and go lookin for th dog.
had a walk about and a look for the dog for bout an hour...foned the woman to see if she had got it...she found it awayyyyyyyyy along th road

excellent...she ws happy and tht ws th end of tht.

ma dad sayd thts a nice wee bit of karma for u.

last nyt at haf 1,,,sum jockey and his burd pulled up in a blak hack out..and wer walkin to their door..but on passin my girl...whose obvious drunkeness made her legs give way, thought that it wld be amusin to use my car as a handrail on her fall to earth.
not many cars can hold the brunt of a fat bint hangin of the bumper...especially mine as its an 89 r5 and was needin the bumper fixed on a bit more sturdy as th brackets wer needin replaced.

but what does ma f'ing head in is how us(modifiers) spend hundreds...and thousands on our cars and some waste of space reject that is no doubt on the social..thinks its acceptable to take there hard earned money...get pissssed on th 20 quid we gave them(tax) and f;uk it all up in one go??????????!!!!!!!!!!!????????????

as u cn tel am fairly not amused

i went to th door and was greeted by a big polish guy...who infact...was 10x more respectable than th stupid tramp and her sideshow of a boyfriend who gave me the exscuse d u kno it wsnt like tht wen we got ther.

moral of my rambleing is...KARMA

is it worth it???
i go out my way to try and help(as a lot of us do)...and then get royally shat on for the kind helping???
