Video: GT3 v GT3RS at Snetterton

Main article has already been posted. Anyway, here’s a video of a chase with the camera in my car and following Glenn who’s a Porsche Cup racer (had to add that in) in his GT3 RS. Apologies for the stupid camera placement, I’m a recording n00b and I should know better. Cem’s GT3 + Glenn’s GT3 RS Snetterton Dec 08 from Cem Kocu on Vimeo.

Aha, our good friends in the electronic retail sector, Comet submitted by Simon Moxon

An entertaining trip to Comet to return my friend John’s faulty Xbox: John: “Hi, I bought this XBOX last week, and as soon as I plugged it in it came up with a message on the screen saying it’s faulty” Staff1: (to staff member 2) “What’s the procedure for XBOX?” Staff2: “Eh, you don’t know what an XBOX is? Ha Ha” Staff1: “Ha Ha… I didn’t say that etc etc.”Discussion continues for 2/3 minutes as they laugh at how Staff2 misheard Staff1; not a good start. Eventually Staff1 reads through some instructions and a flow […]

Smart car dealership, London

An ill furnished warehouse in the region of Abbey Road London is masquerading as a purveyor and importer of fine automobiles. Upon hearing of a Porsche 996 GT2 in their showroom, I made my way there to window browse and engage in, how shall I say, homme a homme conversation with a view to discuss topics not unlike those familiar to any motoring enthusiast. Imagine my suprise, then, to find the proprieter unwilling to talk to me unless, litterally, I was able to show him the colour of my money. When I was faced with […]

Dixons group stores, London

You know, the group that houses the infamous high street retailers such as Dixons, Currys, PC World and Link. Everytime I go in there I always vow never to return, but we always do. I stood next to two shop assistance for approximately 3 minutes (which seems short, but you try holding your breath that long) whilst they discussed their finishing hours. After agreeing that they would both finish at possibly the same time as the shop closed, one of them turned to me and raised his eyebrows, as if to say “Yes?” I shook […]

Toys – R – Us, Brent Cross, London (submitted by Quentin)

Quentin: I’m looking for an RFU cable instead of the SCART cable for my PS2 Staff: ? Quentin: You know, the little round aerial connnector on the back of a normal television? Staff: Err, there are cables over there *points randomly* Quentin: Ok, thank you. *After 10 mins of walking around looking for the cable, then digging through a bin of special offer cables, I finally find the required cable except it said it was for the PS1 only. I walk back to the desk except the guy has gone. So I wait, and wait […]

London BMW dealers

Hexagon and Millcars, to name a couple. Unfortunately, we know they don’t have to kiss ass to get anywhere. Business comes to them in these areas. North London is known for having a bit of money, so why chase people when they come to you. I actually waited for 25 minutes standing still in Millcars before I walked upto the salespersons who were sitting around and asked if anyone was actually alive in the joint. Hexagon actually completely ignored my returned phone calls and emails, despite them promising me a test drive when I visited. […]

I HATE TEMPO

The most dire establishment I have ever had the misfortune in dealing with. From the prepubescent managers to the emotionless, heartless, ‘reading-from-a-page-attatched-to-my-monitor’ customer support. I have never, ever in my life resorted to hanging up my phone in anger. I was forced to do this with this company. I was forced to embarrass myself in their store by refusing to be moved by the security team whilst shouting ‘THIEVES!’, ‘CROOKS!’ and ‘ROTTEN COTTON REELS!’. I was forced to humiliate myself in front of 50 something Tempo customers. And worse, I was forced to speak with […]
