R's unpaid workplace called him desperate for someone to come to work. As he did not have anything planned and in spite of my warnings that they will expect more and more from him if he succumbs to such calls, he went. To his surprise they called him back to the office when he had finished and they said, while we don't normally do this, we were desperate, so thank you, and presented him with a bottle of decent champagne and a thank you card.
Not sure where this came from but unlike the slogan says, it did not fit.
When I was taking photos of the memorial flowers on the tree outside McDonalds I noticed things were pretty messy in the street from McDonalds and Subway food place wrappings etc. Clearing rubbish from the street is the responsibility of Melbourne City Council, but do you think McDonalds has a moral responsibility to keep the streets outside of the stores clear of litter with their name all over it? These open topped bins are quite useless as ravens just hop into them and throw rubbish out until they find something tasty.
Oh, so there is no garlic bread with the pasta matriciana then my dear? Fortunately there was some more, so just a ten minute delay to dinner.
We have lift off.
