Car: $790 later, half was for its almost annual service. I am crying. Sam at the garage saw us walking in Port Melbourne in the weekend and tried to attract our attention from his bicycle, but we did not see him. That he is such a nice guy does ease the pain a little. A few minutes later a jumper from the West Gate Bridge landed near him as he was about to cross the river on the bicycle punt.
Air con: Called service department on toll free number Tuesday morning. Yes, they have a replacement remote control. $60. Fine I said. She then rattled off plus GST, plus freight equals $80. Me: Can I come and pick it up? Her: Of course you can. Me: Where are you? Her: Moorebank. Me: Sorry, I thought you were in Clayton. I don't know where Moorebank is? Her: Are you in Melbourne? Me: Yes. Her: I am in Sydney. Air freight it is then. This was about 9.30 Tuesday. Unit just arrived here 11.00am Wednesday. Can't complain about that.
Computer: Highriser new rechargeable battery policy. Change batteries once a week whether flat or not. I will do it every Sunday when I wind the clock.
