    I don't think anybody has ever seen a new car 4wding regardless of whether or not it drives itself!

    My new car went 4wd'ing on the way home from the dealership. No point treating it like it cost me a fortune!

    Tesla have already designed a car that can drive itself. You are able to summon the car to you. I'm not sure if this feature is available publicly yet though.

    They're holding back on the driving itself features. I'm pretty sure that legally they're not allowed to but whenever they're legally allowed, it'll be a simple over the air update for all Teslas to have that feature. I would give my right arm for a Tesla, sadly they're worth a small fortune!

    Google also have a self-driving car from memory.

    Yes Google do. And you're correct that it'll be a simple software update for the Tesla. It's DH's dream car. We test drove one in Sydney during a promotion. Absolutely amazing! I love that this car has an "insane mode" lol.

    OMG, I'm so jealous! I've never even seen one in real life let alone been in one! It's my dream car, screw DH lol! Insane mode looks, well, insane haha. I follow Elon Musk on Twitter and every time he comes out with an update, I'm blown away by the things he does. I also follow Bored Elon Musk on Twitter and whoever that is has a hilariously brilliant mind!

    The ONLY reason this woman didn't get a dirty nappy left on her bonnet with a note was because I couldn't find a pen.
    I'm ashamed to admit I'm serious about that.

    My car is the blue one.
    FIND ME-001.jpg

    The picture might look harmless enough but as I was juggling two children, one a SCREECHING infant, shopping bags and a pram into my car this morning, this "lady" came up on the wrong side of the car space beside me (she drove in , not reversed in, from the other side crossing two other spots as you can see behind her car) and sat waiting for me to close my son's door to let her park.
    Now, that alone p!ssed me off because there was LOADS of empty spaces around us but I stopped what I was doing (begrudgingly) to go round and shut my son's door, giving her the benefit of the doubt.
    DD is still screaming her head off and I'm feeling the stress at this point and I just knew this woman was going to say something to me.
    Just as I'm putting the pram in the boot she passes me and says
    "oh is somebody upset this morning?"
    I gave her the death stare. Honestly woman, do I look like I want to chat to you? Jog on!
    "Yes" I muttered as I slammed the boot and go around to open my son's door to secure his buckle.
    Only look, see how she's parked?
    As fecking close to me as she can possibly get.
    The passenger door hits her car as I open it.
    I called after her asking if she was going to leave her car parked like that?
    She ignored me and toddled off on her merry way, most likely to obstruct shoppers with her trolley as she saunters around in la-la-land.
    Honestly!! Oh and my door clipped her mirror, not bad but it reminded me of the post early about parking when one car is nose in and the other nose out.
    Either it never bothered me before I just never noticed it.
    It bothered me today.

    I have a big bag of pens going into the car now.
    Oh I know it's not nice but I drove like a bat out of hell out of that car park this morning because of her.
    A screaming baby is enough to deal with without morons with no common sense and a nerve to comment on my child, too.
