Hubby got a letter today regarding a full licence he should have, they're asking for the payment and certified copy of certificate and his photo. He just rang them, after a bit of info passing, she apologised, they'd made a mistake, he should have had it a while back. Major apologies for putting him out. Licence in the post.

Hate this place. Who the hell do you have an argument with if people admit they've made a mistake before you've have time to get angry:curse:

Serving in the High School Tuckshop today. Flaming kids coming through, please this, please that, thanks. Who teaches the kids their manners

Well I am bloody furious

The Seven Seas removal van has just delivered my boxes and none of them and I repeat none of them have been opened.

He had the cheek to ask if I wanted them in certain places, he had ten minutes to help me sort where I wanted them to go and when I said to leave them by the door he had the bloody nerve to tidy them up and stuff.

He looked knackered so I made him a cup of tea and we had a good 'yarn' as I have heard it called.

He had the nerve to tell me how to use the cockroach 'bombs' in the house and general advice on pest control.

Then, and this is terrible - he had the cheek to stroke my cat and be nice to him.

After that he washed his cup up and thanked me for the drink and that he needed it.

How the hell can he be so nice, what right does he have and why oh why were my boxes not ripped apart?

I need to calm down, where is the fight when you need one.

Seven Seas phoned twice after he had to check the driver had come on time and then to check that everything was in order.

Bloody cheek, I shall need counselling at this rate.

good question, own property in Oz and UK and spend time between both (no I'm not lucky, set some goals, worked hard and took some intelligent risks which paid off), only popped on this thread as a wind up - was a bit too easy though, thought the welsh bint might have some sort of seizure!

Hi! In reply, no seizure... Not that kind.Not a bint either you cheeky so and so!

Its a shame that someone of your obvious age maturity cannot help themselves but make school yard personal comments!!!

Shall I tell you how tall I am... Just in case you need to find someone your own size!! I love a debate on Ex Pats but the personal thing just disappoints me and shows what I feel is a lack of intelligence.

Get back to your business empire ( and the cream teas!!) and leave us happy people alone eh!!!

Hmmm ... well according to the encylopedia, there's well over that in just mammals ...
A total of 379 species of mammals have been recorded in Australia and surrounding continental waters; 357 indigenous and 22 introduced[1]. The list includes 2 monotremes, 159 marsupials, 76 bats, 69 rodents (5 introduced), 10 seals, 3 placental terrestrial carnivores (2 recent and 1 sub-recent introductions), 13 introduced ungulates, 2 introduced lagomorphs, 44 cetaceans and 1 dugong.
