High Jinks or Appalling Criminal Behaviour?

I once bimbled across the Tescos car park to my old Mk 4 escort unlocked the door put my shopping on the passenger seat and thoght where the hell has all this rubbish come from, at which point I realised it wasn't my car. right row identical looking car wrong side of a people carrier.


The LR drivers door opens with almost any key you have, but I think that's because its badly worn
Not only that but I found out the hard way that most LR keys fit most ignitions,:( and to make life more interesting the keys can be removed and the engine left running.:)
 
Murder is the only thing that has no statute of limitations in Germany, minor traffic offences expire after 3 months, criminal offences vary from a few years to 10 years. You should therefore be safe.:)

School_for_scoundrels was happy enough when one of his "mates" couldn't be investigated for noncing in Germany because of the time scale.
 
My brother (Northumbria SPG, disbanded for making the SS look soft) always had an FS883 on his ring of open-anything keys.

What does your new avatar say. It is hard to read on a small screen.

Looks like " I can't believe I shagged a tank".

Close but no coconut. "I can't believe I shagged a tankie."
 
Thanks for that. Should have gone to Specsavers (would have if they weren't a bunch of tax evading unscrupulous ARRSEholes).

And you can shove the coconut where the tankie shoved his wedding tackle.

As a serious question I noticed that American tankies seem to be called "tankers". Have us Brits ever used this word or is the slight amendment to the first letter tempting derision.
 
Done all the FS, FA etc car key stuff. More amusing is youngsters surprise with old Brit bikes. Wot's a Matchless? It's got no key. Wot's a kickstart? Wot do you mean, up for down and down for up. On that side! Only four gears. How do you indicate?
Bless 'em.

Not so much tempting derision as tempting a few likes or funnies.

I seriously doubt that there is a Thinking Skills programme anywhere near Tamworth.

As opposed to the more common place achievement of shagging a cavalryman.
Yes, of course. You did notice that the picture shows a woman, didn't you? Which was the point.

we Brits were always tankies, the American version is probably because it sounds like another word beginning with the letter W. Having worked with some of them in the 80's, they were just "operators" with no concept of looking after, maintaining, repairing your own tank, but expecting someone else to pick up the pieces. They were amazed that we ate together as a crew and seemed to spend every spare moment throwing knives into trees, ignoring any actual work that needed doing.
 
Well, Bertie was fined £10 for nicking a police man's helmet in c. 1930, that would in today's money be about £300-350. So not too much change there, I gather.

I had a 1971 Mini that could be unlocked and started with our garage key. The reverse was not true.

I lost the key to my first Capri once and found out that I could get a new one by taking the glove box lock into Ford, as they were one and the same.
