My weird ritual
Once a week, usually round about a Sunday lunchtime, I have this thing that I just seem to have this weird compulsion to do.

I make a cup of tea, and go outside. Then I unlock my van, open the bonnet, check its oil, water and brake fluid and top up the washer bottle. Shut the bonnet, start the engine and listen for any new squeaks or rattles - nope? okay good, then move on to switching on all the lights and indicators and checking that it has a full complement of headlights, sidelights, brake lights, tail lights, fog lights and indicators (obviously the reversing lights need the engine off). Then I go round and check the tyres have no obvious bulges or cuts and have legal-looking tread on them, and maybe even check they're at about the right pressure.

It must be weird and silly, judging by the number of people I see driving around on these dark sleety wet nights with one headlight out and no brake lights.

Or if they do have both headlights
one of them is so poorly aligned it dazzles the fuck out of all other road users.
This actually happened to my car after an "authorised repair centre" got their hands on it following an accident*. I had to go to an independent garage to get it sorted.

*And I had to make them do the paint again because there were places where the primer was showing through. Lazy inept Cunts.

I also have a similiar"ritual"
It's just too much effort to go and buy replacements in addition to the painful memories of losing knuckles last time the bonnet was up.

So your story is...
you're a conscientious car owner?

I believe, Ringpiece,
it's a slightly tongue in cheek comment on the apparent failure of other drivers to diligently maintain their vehicles.

I would recommend you link to it as 'Man looks after his own van, couldn't find evidence of noncery, but doesn't mean there isn't any'.

It's the blown headlight that gets you pulled over by the police...
... not the blood dripping from the back doors.

They must have both of my working headlights flashing in their face until they pass me
