    Would have been cheaper to put it in a taxi - that's amazing.

    Damn! Emailing Word or PDF documents would have been a bit cheaper than that.

    Centrelink.... They require so much paperwork and it's so hard to find someone who actually gives a crap and is willing to help. Today's visit will be my 4th this week. *sigh*

    If my Youth Allowance claim isn't processed by mid next week, then I more than likely won't be able to enrol in my TAFE course. Which of course means I then won't be elligible for Youth Allowance. *sigh* And then I'll have to spend another year here and find a full time job. :(

    Hopefully a miracle happens and I find someone at Centrelink who actually cares and will hurry it along for me.

    And I really miss my Matt *stupid Military* :p

    You'll find that is actually a common occurrence. Its the whole upaid guy gets to be a hero syndrome. They start a fire to get kudos for being on the front line putting it out. It's happened here in SA a fair bit too unfortunately.

    But I agree with you, it makes me :mad: too.

    Nasty bits of work, but let's face it, they probably aren't 100% up top. Not good though.

    I learnt tonight that 58km/h means minus $200. Crap.

    the worst part about it being a volunteer CFA firefigther is it cast aspersions over the lot, the true heroes that have been risking their lives to save others & now they will be tarred with the same brush by some. :mad:

    You'll find a good number of arsonists are in some way connected to the fire service. Backdraft taught me that! [face_peace]

    WRGMG?

    People taking other people's designs and making money off of it without asking for any permission or giving any credit.
