*sigh* so ok where to start... I'm not much of a person to rant about stuff, but I'll just put off my "look at the bright side" attitude for now, 'cause something's been bothering me the whole freaking day!
Dunno if you guys heard about the scandal in Spain recently (at least y'all in Europe lol), that some hundred driving instructors got their licenses taken from them because apparently they were not qualified to do the job, i.e. teach ppl how to drive and therefore not fully capable of telling who should pass and who shouldn't? Then thousands and thousands of ppl who failed and had those driving instructors could ask to redo their exams?...
Ok, this to say... I wish that happened in Portugal too!
A friend of mine is/was taking her driver's license and today was her driving exam. From what she told me her lessons were like I really had the feeling she wouldn't pass it (of course I never said this, I just offered to help her out and gave her support). So yeah, she failed. At first it made me sad but then really pissed off; her driving instructor SUCKS! She practically didn't do any parking in her lessons, barely worked the things she had most trouble with, like the point of clutch... *sigh* I mean, if the person teaching you is not there to actually try to make a good driver out of you, what's the point? If you are there to teach, why don't you TEACH??
On a different note... My PC blew up - almost literally - my motherboard burned! Got no pc at home, all because of a night of thunder and lightning. The weather's causing some much damage now, esp. up here in the North. Oh well... one can't control mother nature eh?
