What do you hate about xmas?

Recommended Posts

Ice, snow, more ice and the frost bitten fingers caused by ice!

Generally, the weather

I miss those crystal clear, cold, frosty days, when the hoar frost coated the trees like tinsel, and we could make slides down the hill at the end of the street in the frost covered pavements. No central heating of course, and I used to be fascinated by the frost patterns/swirls on the inside of my bedroom window

thing that is bugging me about xmas is that driving standards are seemly deteriorating even further, pushing out when there isn't properly room and just general impatient and careless manoeuvres like the driver is in a hurry, not concentrating or pre-occupied, trying to do too much and consequently something of a menace, or...is it just me i wonder?

rode home from kent last night, some 85 miles across london, it was pretty cold but with stops to warm up ok and no rain, at least the roads were quieter than during the day when i went, oh and no low sun which can be another issue this time of year.

I actually notice there are distinct moments where you just know the cagers will be utterly terrible.

My 2 main ones are

1) the clock changes in and out of BST

2) a snap change in weather

The averge driver just doesn't seem to be able to cope with anything that changes their routine. Which is odd, because commuting is monotonous, and anything that makes it different should be good!

But over winter, it does seem to get worse. That they just can't deal with darker evenings. And rather than accept the conditions are beyond their abilities, they instead just cause accidents.
