[QUOTE=sdunx;6227420]Sorry to piss on your bonfires but this thread is a tad superficial

Its the bloody superficial car dealers who tell you not to buy the old heap on their forecourt cos you've just arrived & need something more reliable

And the bloody superficial people queuing behind you in Kmart who help out at the till cos you can't figure out whether your card is cheque, savings or credit,then give you their number in case you need them

Not forgetting the bloody superficial surf livesavers who actually keep an eye on the people around instead of gassing to their mates

Oh, and the bloody superficial bus drivers (2) who took my Dad to my front door when he got on the wrong bus (twice) and realised at the other end he was lost

I really found it so hard going around all the wineries being forced to try all these lovely wines and champagne until I was half cut, it was such hard work

Reminds me of those weekly farmers markets... organic cheese, bread, meat, fish... free samples with no hard sell and after a few weeks they start to call you by name... Bloody cheek!!!

One guy even had the cheek to give me 4 free cup cakes just for me when I bought some for my boys, and i had only met him & his wife 3 times before... Awful!!! ( well for the hips !)
