April 19th, 2011 5:13 AMCaptain Fabio
Haha, well we do all have different wants of learning, never mind how bazar!
April 19th, 2011 5:06 AMDave_
most of the signs were new so it was pretty easy
Like if you weren't told the sky was green you'd know that colour as green, I knew those signs by the funny noises that were apparently words of a different language lol
April 19th, 2011 3:50 AMCaptain Fabio
Haha, you crazy cat! ;D
Wow, that must have been tough, how the hell did you pull that one off?
April 19th, 2011 3:19 AMDave_
Yeah i know sorry about that but I couldn't really condense it any lol
Yeha it's pretty bad, I legally obtained a licence over here aswell so I cleary can't be that bad of a driver lol
The test was much harder especially sicne the theory was in greek and I didn't know any greek prior lol
Yup breaking stereotpyes all over the shop ;D lol

Normally, that is a tl;dr, but for you, I will did read it.
FFFFUU, that sucks man, I am sorry to hear that. But at least no one was hurt, if you didn't act so quickly and promptly, then it could have been a lot worse and manslaughter could have been added to those charges.
Naaa, I know you have tattoos and they normally reprisent some random thug, but you seen like a nice guy to me.

Long story short,
Car matched my speed
Being relatively new at driving I thought well he'll back off and let me in so kept going
Realised he wasn't going to do that
Looked back to get back in the queue, the gap had gone behind me, I was underpowered to reach a gap in front of me
A corner was approaching to which i could see a car was gonbg t ocome round soon
Wet roads lead me ot think breakign wouldn't have been the smartest thing to do so i aimed for a field opening with ym foot down not knowing wether the oncoming car would see me in time and react in tiem with brakes
she saw btu a little too alte, locked up and covered most of the exit while i was a couple of feet away from the opening so i drove up on the verge, Over her offside wing and would have landed fine on all 4 wheels at the mouth of the field however my wheel locked up on hers
Which spun my car to the left slightly which lead me to carry on to hit a straining post which spun my car a nother 90 degrees landing facing the road as if i was away to come out of the junction
The police reports said that my story was logical and that I should feel good that I managed to act so quickly and get everyone out safely and that he would eccommend a driving course as a punishment as you know every accident has to have someone at fault in the uk
However some Polish wife put forward a statement saying that I was 'driving liek a mad man' and that I had overtaken 11 cars on a bend
- Just for reference, I was driving a 1.2 corsa ...
1 it wouldn't be capable of overtaking 11 cars at once on a bend thats about 5 cars long
2 I crashed before the bend?
3 SHe was supposedly at the front of these 11 cars, How the hell could she have known how man ycars behind her I was
But thaty wasn't taken into consideration by the first judge to sentence
From my studies of Law my lecturers had often spoken of the 1 judghe you don't want to have cos she's a ***** ..
Yeha guess who I got as a judge..
SHe sadi i was a menace to society, not to go near a car etc etc
If you hadn't read the tattoo thread I'm quite respected i my community for charity work and at the time was a full time law student with part time job at tesco lol hardly the spawn of satan
Anyway, she took my licence away indefinately and said that she was considering a cusotdial sentence
I came back on ym sentencing court date and I had a different judge who basically said it should never have come this far but he can't go back on the other judges decisions so game me 100 hours community sertvice and an 18 month ban as opposed to the prison sentence
Noone was injured either which made it all more abrusd, my solicitor and hte police were reassuring in saying that i might get points and a fine but i've got nothign to worry about noone was harmed etc so everyone was a bit shocked when that judge came about..
Basically I got f*cked over to be made an example of (=

Haha, fair enough. Sounds like a nice place to live, bachelor pad if anything!
How did you lose your license? :/ Physical loss or you just driving like a mad man?
April 19th, 2011 2:42 AMDave_
Yeah it's orite like, =P
Well tbh most of the time there is someone there, and if not then i'm not there either so it works out to be pretty fun but it's in the countryside so a bit of a trek especially since i lost my licence last april =\
WHich lead me to take this gap year in the first place, I had to leave my course and my job because i quite simply did not have the available means of transport =\
April 19th, 2011 2:17 AMCaptain Fabio
19 and you have an actual house. Not bad for some.
But that sounds nice. Must be lonely living on your own? Or, do you have 'company'?
April 19th, 2011 1:35 AMDave_
Bah yeah luckily if i do end up in someones house I recall getting there so never fear my own safety =P
Yeah Well.. Originall from Scotland, But teh rest of my family moved ti cyprus aalmost 3 years ago so i inherited their scottish house
I lived there for 2ish years then moved over here for a 9 month break last october so i'll be here until summer
SO even though I was living on my own i'm still under my parents roof and they live here so I am split between 2 homes, the one i grew up/ live in and the one my parents live in so I jsut go back and forth whenever but after my 9 months are up here i'll be living primarily in Scotland again
April 19th, 2011 1:15 AMCaptain Fabio
Sounds like an epic night, I have had a few of them, but woken up in other people's houses! XD
Beach? I know you ain't talking about Scotland, so that much be Cyprus? May I ask, why is your location Scotland/Cyprus? They must be the two most opposite places ever! XD
April 19th, 2011 1:10 AMDave_
Bah quality the last night out I had I ended up passed out on the beach, Which is strange because I don't know how I got there ..
Needless to say, twas a good night ;D
