I paid my money and left the shop, in total shock because the dreadful customer assistant helped me - shocking, I am not used to help.

Now I shall go to that horrible coffee shop 'Gino's' in Fremantle and drown my sorrows with a coffee or something.

And the sight of those cockatoos in the trees is offensive and to be frank (I dont know who Frank is but today I shall be him), I am going to complain about the scenery.

Then, when I get home I shall poison my system with a cold beer and then cry because it really is a bad life.

I hope there are no ugly lorikeets watching.
Talking of breakfast, I went in to work today for my first Saturday. I was armed with the usual packed lunch and it soooooo pissed me off when at 9am the smoko van arrived with cooked egg, bacon, chips and toast for everyone! The company hate us that much that they buy us all a cooked breckie for coming in on Saturday! ... no consideration I tell ya! ... :curse:

Oh we hate it here don't we! ...

Yes it is grey in the Pontpridd etc (generally grey/black around peoples eyes after being in a pub on a sat night full of local neaderthals). However sunny Devon beats Oz (and Wales) everyday, I won't start on the reasons why cos I'll be here forever.

It's all relative, I'd rather live in Chernobyl than Swansea for instance.

Runs for cover
I rather be in Oz... or Ponty thanks!! Nice to see you know SO much about my mother country... Stop trying to stir up a very ( up to now ) light hearted thread!!

Isnt it funny that the ones who've returned are always the miserable grouchy buggers. on here ... thats why they didnt like OZ!!!

Id rather live in Devon than Chernobyl....or Swansea ( full of Jacks!!)

However if you keep on you will be in Coventry!!!

Me and tiddler were in a shop today and obviously the rain was coming down like stair rods. Assistant was chatting - cheeky cow and then offered me a plastic bag to shelter us on the way to the car. No it's fine, the car's only just up there. Don't be daft she says and goes off and finds the biggest plastic bag you've seen, cuts it up the middle so it makes a perfect shelter for both of us to stay dry to the car. Did I ask for it? Did I hell :curse:

Ha! You will envy me then.
Today in Morrisons the girl that served me didn't say hello or goodbye. She just siad "Do you want help packing?" and "Cashback?" in a bored voice whilst inspecting her nails.
Poor thing - I felt awful disturbing her.
Anyway Oz sounds awful. Don't think I'll bother
