Well, let me start with bloggers who you invest time and effort into and then they disappear.
A restaurant in Victoria Street, Richmond that has been there for twenty odd years. We had never been and won't go again as it is crap. We should have stuck to Tran Tran.
R's workmate's mother reversed her car into a unit adjacent to her own and knocked out half a bedroom. She is 87 and her husband it 93. She said the accelerator got stuck. Her husband agreed and said it has happened to him too. They were about to set off to drive to Queensland but there is a problem due to the wrecked car. I suppose this is a good thing. Get them off the roads, report them to Vicroads. I see so many old drivers who should not be near a steering wheel. Their only saving grace is that they do things so slowly, they are predictable. But making a neighbours unit uninhabitable is not great. Police target, Balaclava and Elsternwick and retirement villages.
In Australia, we drive on the left hand side of the road. If we are walking on the footpath, unless the other person's intentions are clear, we tend to walk to the left of oncoming walkers. Keep it in mind, and also keep in mind that if you are gym fit bunny chick walking with your stud boyfriend, and two old queens are walking towards you and the footpath is narrow, one of them is not going to step off the footpath and give way to you.
The Age columnist Catherine Deveny suggested that if Australia gets rid of of the UK and become a republic, we will no longer be a part of The Commonwealth. Not so. I am proud to be a part of The Commonwealth. I am proud of our English, Scottish, Welsh, Irish heritage (railroads in India, get it Rosanna?)
People who delay trams by trying to have a long conversation with the driver about where they are going, by standing in the doorway and preventing the tram from moving on.
Trams that seem to have no connection to the timetable, like we experienced the number three East Malvern tram today.
Not answered emails. There are emails that it is ok to not answer, and there are some that should be answered. You know the the difference surely. Respond to those that you should.
Worse than the incompetence of Yarra Trams and Connex is the incompetence and bottom line of VicRoads (we won't mow around trees and mow grass, we will just slash it and poison the grass around trees and signs and don't worry about the litter, someone else's department).
I will leave you with a grand hurrah. All you older people who are suddenly concerned about green house gasses, melting ice, loss of trees, rising sea levels, drought, climate change. Duh! This has been around for years. It was a known prediction for a long time. Why do you suddenly care? Why has it just become popular when it is almost too late?
