Farmers

This happed to me recently... I was tootling along a country road having an altogether pleasant drive when a bloody great brand new tractor came spinning arround the corner in the middle of the road (Where do they get the money? We know the answer dont we tax payers) and nearly ran me off the road. Quite acceptably I gave him the bird and the cheeky git gave me a cheery wave. So, I am not altogether sure he got the message... perhaps if I was to vist his barn with a box of matches, do you think it might sink in then?

Re: Farmers

This is one of the few countries I have ever driven in where agricultural vehicles have almost complete disregard for other traffic. But yeah, I just try to be patient.

Re: Farmers

The solution is clearly to purchase a tractor of your own.

Here's one you might like:

Re: Farmers

LOL - the OP dates from 2007 so how on earth did you dig that out?

Lovely to see you back- but your new avatar makes me laugh, as in Romandie 'espèce de cornichon' is the equivalent of a 'nincompoop' (sp???) x

Post of the day.

Don't get the link at all - nothing exceptional about a 1950's baby John Deere, worth trawling for an 8yr. old 2 post thread.

There's more to this than meets the eye ..... where's Sigmund when you need him?


John Deere => John Doe + dill pickle (avatar) = dill Doe.

This is a transparent attempt to offload one of his surplus tractors without conforming to all the requirements of a 'Marketplace' advert.

Re: Farmers

A farmer friend of mine got his tractor stuck. He drove it into a magnetic field.
