Had to park a PC training bus today. It was a bit of a white knuckle drive- I nearly turned a Ford Mondeo saloon into a hatchback.

You train your computers on a bus?

PC rapid reaction force - for immediate correction of incorrect terminology?

Jesko thinks bus drivers are well paid because they have to know all the names of the bus stops

I use to drive a suburban... them are some big vehicles. It was the first car I had to drive. I have hit 8 stationary vehicles in my time.

What the hell is a Ford Mondeo?

OK, I'm really not joking what the fuck is a PC training bus?

Is it actually a bus where you train people to use PCs? Or a bus for transporting police trainees?

hnp: Ford model not sold in the US, I think the Taurus is the closest relative. Although it may also have been the Multipla's brother.

Now why did Laz call it a saloon? Are there cowboys in the trunk (aka boot) drinking whiskey? Because that would be cool.

My sister refuses to drive anything but Suburbans because it has room for her, four screaming kids, a husband, all their junk, the kids' friends, it can tow their boat, andcarry all other associated family detritus. She makes her husband buy her a new one every four years.

A "sedan" to you transatlantics. Over here a sedan is a chair with two long poles attached. And that's "poles" with a small "p" you pun addicts.

Since we're talking about about crashes I thought I'd mention a friend of mine who worked as a caddy at a posh golf course while in college. On slow days they'd all start drinking and then try to jump the golf carts over the ponds which they'd fail to do as often as they made it. Eventually they made a wooden ramp to jump things with the carts and decided to try to jump a Mercedes.

The golf cart landed on the E-classes roof crushing it badly. They all got fired.

The last generation Mondeo was sold in the US as the contour but failed out of the market for being small and under powered.

Here it's not small it's average sized.

Dunno about under powered. I'm not really interested in cars. It doesn't have a 20 litre engine though.

Middle class car, yes. The old Mondeo was rather lower middle class. And it had some problems, not just the stunningly bizarre design. The new one is much improved and does quite well. A failure of that model might have broken Ford Europe's neck...

The only time I ever crashed into a parked vehicle, I was riding a bicycle and had looked down because something had got into the spokes.

God, that hurt.

Yeah, it's averaged size in Europe and "compact" in America. I was sold here with a truly crap four and an aged six neither of which passed mustard compared to the Japanese engines nor even the engines GM or Chrysler were putting out. It cost the same as an Accord but was smaller (especially the back seats) and had less power

Dyl Ulenspiegel
11-02-2005, 11:23:48
The new one is actually between the old mondeo and scorpio models. Don't know which length you'd still rate "compact", though.

ditto, but I was ogling a brunette on the opposite sidewalk, and I smashed my knee against the trunk of the parked car.
that taught me to never turn around to look at girls on the streets

I didn't know that

11-02-2005, 20:54:33
Well, it has all the hallmarks of an Aussie song. Though it is a little too creative. If it went:

Busdriver, busdriver, busdriver, oi, oi, oi

then you'd know it was Aussie.

Hail to the bus driver,
Bus driver!
Bus driver!
Hail to the bus driver,
Bus driver man.

He spitss and he cusses,
and smells up the busses,
Hail to the bus driver,
Bus driver man.

He steps on the clutch
and the toilet goes flush.
Hail to the bus driver,
Bus driver man.
