Finding a Eastern Brown Snake skin in the gutters whilst cleaning them out is a Bad Thing.

But probably better than actually being confronted by the snake still in its skin? :scaredhair:

A colleague who is useless, was replaced at the start of term. I learnt however, when she called up yesterday, that no one's actually told her she no longer has a job. Lucky I'm highly qualified in the art of bullshite. It's not my place to tell her. Tad embarrassing though. :blink:

:eek:Wonder when they are planning to tell her

As soon as flaming possible I hope. She's asking questions that because she no longer has a right to know, I can't answer honestly. Whilst I don't like the woman, and whilst she's totally fricking useless, this is a nightmare.

1) That you should never use burgundy hair dye near a pale blue bathmat......four washes later its still there :rolleyes:

2) Kitchen floors should be scrubbed more than once every 11 months even if the kitchen is only the size of a broom cupboard :frown:

3) If you put out a couple of hob nobs on the back porch you can attract a whole flock of rosellas, but if you put out food labelled "Guaranteed to attract parrots and rosellas" they will turn up their beaks and go elsewhere :ohmy:

4) Being at work really IS more relaxing than having four days off :rofl:

That people 'wasting' visa's and/or attempting to scam the immigration process, pisses me off more than it ever did before now that I'm an Australian Citizen.

In all innocence, can I ask why this offends you so much?

3) A massive brown stripey spider found in the car can evade an industrial hoover

What about yous?
