I lost my car. Parked it, went into the supermarket came out and it was gone. Spent ages looking for it until I realised I’d changed my car the week earlier and was now driving a completely different car, that was parked in the space I thought it should be in originally.

I did lose a car in a supermarket car park in Dewsbury - I parked it up, we went shopping, came back, and the space I'd left it in was vacant :eek:

Fearing the worst, thinking it had been stolen, I started to get a bit annoyed ( my pride and joy modified Sierra Xr4x4i), then I noticed it - it had slid down the hill as the handbrake hadn't done it's job enough lol.
Somehow it had managed to go three rows down and a couple of spaces across, and not hit anything :D

Is the above the reason you always apply chocks to your Preston Barrow when your out fishing?:unsure:

No, the rear handbrakes on them were renowned for being inefficient and it 'wandered off' a couple of times lol

I put my dress watch in a safe place, it's still there and I've moved twice since, bought it during the ashes tour 02/03 tax free in aus only the 500 quid. I've never bought another watch and refuse to wear one.

I've just bought a new pair of loppers as I lost my old ones. I searched the garage and the shed top to bottom. Anyway, as I bend down to cut off the wrapping off the new set, guess what was poking out from under the bench, yes the old ones!

Lost loppers before. Filled green waste bin with branches etc and left loppers in for safe keeping as planned to cut more and fill bin up more. Never got round to and and put bin out for binmen.
With loppers in. 🤣

Many years ago my granny give me a grand in £50 notes. Always thought it was in a old suit pocket hanging in my cupboard till I looked for it a few years ago. Not there. Couldn’t find it anywhere. Had I put in in a charity bag 🙈. Always hoped it would turn up.
Last week emptied cupboard under stairs and chucked some coats out. On one coat hook was a Safeway bag with a shortcake tin in. Opened it up and a grand of £50s in it. 🙈.
No idea how it got there.

Nice surprise. At least you found it eventually. You can now go and buy something to lose.😂🥴.
it appears that the older fisherman spend more time playing hide and seek than they do fishing.🤣🤣😉

Lovely cars. I had two of those Dave. A ‘ D ‘ reg one in Mercury grey 2.8 engine and later a ‘ F ‘ reg one in Crystal blue 2.9 engine. Why the engine change I don’t know. Went like stink. Made a lovely growly noise when you floored it.

Now to the really silly thing about losing something.
I sort of lost my house.:sleep: After a very tiring night shift I got home and pulled up outside to suddenly realise I had moved to a new house. DER.,>>>>>>>>>>:ROFLMAO:
