Can I ask the obvious question? Why?


Personally I won't be ripped off by a taxi ever again. Uber it is for me.


I've had the odd problem with Uber drivers but Uber have always fixed them without further question.
Probably because it has to be a real "pi$$ed me off" and I'm pretty detailed with the complaint

Taxis owners made their own nest and it's too bad as far as I'm concerned
Plus everyone is still getting ripped off by Cabcharge

I dont use Uber Eats though

Took an Uber from the hotel to the casino in Sydney a couple of years ago. They refunded part of the cost because the driver took a shorter route.. Never had anything but positive experiences with them

Parents. I am one, so I feel qualified to say this, but FFS please read any message or email before sending to your child's teacher and and ensure you are using some sort of logic or sound reasoning.

Even after the second go, I sincerely hope you’re not an English/Literature teacher…

Birthday today (rate) so took the day off to spend with the family (rate) only to have our port river kayak tour cancelled due to high winds (shit) and then get an email... yes email from one of my Engineers resigning after only 3 months on the job to take another opportunity (shit).

Overcooked chips with my steak at the pub. They were bad enough that when the waitress came back with Mrs Columbo's meal and I asked could I have some fresh ones she said oh yeah they are a bit burnt looking.

Dear me!!! How would you even consider serving up burnt chips, you'll sacrifice a reputation over 34 cents worth of chips that will take two minutes to cook?

They're a different breed.

I put a basket just inside the lads door a few weeks back and told him that I'll do the washing every Saturday morning and whatever is in it will get washed as I won't pick shit up off the floor.

Every week there's like a pair of dacks and maybe a sock, possibly a t-shirt so that's all that gets washed (except the sock as I won't wash a sock without it's twin).

Then I watch him doing a load of washing on Sunday and thinking he doesn't need pegs :lol: :lol:

Clothes pinging off everywhere as soon as he walks back inside.

My idiot ( I love him to death) gets absolutely filthy at his work, in a steel yard to that oil on the steel to protect it gets over everything. He's also required to wear long strides and long sleeve shirt, every Friday night we have a few beers together and I say "Put your shit in the wash, it'll be dry tomorrow lunch time".

Then, Sunday's at 5pm I laugh my f*cken head off at him as he asks "Will this dry by tomorrow" and I say "F*ck no"

He's 25.

So there is no hope for miss 15 then...
Every wash on Sunday evening as I am folding the undies and socks, every other member of the family has close enough to 7 days worth except for miss 15 who has maybe two pairs of each at the most.

Nope. not a gender specific trait

Miss 17 has an irregular to non-existent capacity to ensure clothing is in the wash basket on a Sat am.

Mrs AMB recently removed two bags of rubbish from her room (biscuit boxes, chocolate wrappers, other assorted crap)....

Incredible, isn't it?

I did similar a week or two back, few chip packets, a couple of bowls, a few glasses and when I gave him both barrels I got "WTF we're you doing in my room?" he wasn't surprised when I told him "It's actually my room, you just get to stay in it".

We got the "I think I'm Gluten intolerant" two months ago....

Why this, I feel sick after dinner yada yada yada.

So we mis things up get her some gluten free stuff

We then unpack it all, has OJ for breakfast barely eats at school, comes home will smash half bag of chips, makes large ice coffee, eats more biscuits etc within two hours of tea and then wonders why she feels sick after eating dinner #-o #-o

The Gluten intolerant fad soon passed within a week of eating tasteless cardboard.... :shock: :shock:

Kids I tell ya, back in my day.....

We felt lucky and loved just to get a backhander for not bringing the two packets of cigs back fast enough from the local deli...

my parents rarely if ever struck us can count on one hand the number of times and that's allowing for having two fingers amputated...
