This is a question Little Victories II

I once got bumped up to first class in the 90 minute leg of a 16 hour flight. Tell us about your insignificant little triumphs and minor victories. (Driving a Honda Accord doesn't count).

This one was a well deserved win.
I'm on my kid's school Parent's and Citizens committee. We HAD a closed-group facebook page.

Bad idea I know - at the time of it's inception everyone was happy-go-lucky and optimistic. That changed as soon as the cunts started slagging off every post on there.

It really came down to one particular woman who would leave a P&C meeting, go home, get drunk and then start gossiping to everyone about what had gone on - most of it either completely made up or grossly exaggerated. The level and amount of shit this woman (and her dopey husband) slung around was phenomenal. She was scathing and downright nasty about anyone who raised an issue at a meeting (although never to their faces) and held court with a group of mummies most afternoons at school whilst waiting for the bell to go. The stuff I heard that was said was often cringe-worthy in content and level of bullshit.

I wasn't that involved but I did cop some shit, compared with some of the things that were said about other members that she'd singled out - I got away relatively easy. I'd suggested at one point that myself and a few of the dads on the Grounds Committee could knock together a paving job that needed doing. This woman's pissed husband jumped on fb and said it would be "a half-arsed job for a half-arsed school." Seriously? Why the fuck does he have his kids at the school if that's genuinely how he feels about it? Who the fuck slags off their own kids' school on facebook to other members of that school's community?

When it came to this years AGM one of the first motions we put forward and passed (unanimously) was to shut the page down. There were quite a few of this woman's 'followers' at the meeting and as it transpired they learnt a few home truths about what she'd been saying and they finally got the other side of the story. Suffice to say a lot of them were not only apologetic but also quite pissed off with her for having lied to them. Apparently a few of them took it upon themselves to divest themselves of her friendship in a rather public way later that week at school.

I've noticed that the little court of gossip she used to hold each day outside her kid's class is somewhat... singular these days. I've also noticed she has a great deal of hardship looking quite a few people in the eyes as she walks dejectedly around school as well.

Now I like to think I'm not a vindictive or unnecessarily malicious person. But... Karma's a bitch ain't it Mel?

Cycling in the cycle lane one evening,
I was overtaken by two twats on mopeds, who buzzed me so closely that I almost fell off my bike.

Saw them both again about half a mile down the strip getting ticketed by traffic police for being in the cycle lane in the first place.

Basked in the splendidly petty glow of smugness that ensued.

I got given a 50 instead of fiver in my change last year.
This is dollars, so all the notes look the same. I very nearly told them , but stopped myself just in time.

road users
The person who cut me up at the lights, how sad her face looked as she got caught in traffic and I drove by. It may be a tiny victory, but it was mine and I enjoyed it.

TLDR: bad driver, caught in traffic.

I think you'll find...
...that it's Driving an Honda Accord. As in driving an Honda Accord to an hotel for an holiday with an hooker.

So there you go. My littlest victory is channeling the spirit of Angela Ripon and the BBC to correct an commoner on the Internet. Can one have an huzzah??!

A few times lately I've used the self-service machines in the Tesco near work and found someone has left their change behind
Today there was about 50p in change and a fiver hanging out of the slot. I'd only gone in for a £1 bag of mini-eggs.
