When you spend 5 hours, washing, clay barring, minor chip touch upping and waxing your missus' car, only to take the mirror out as you're reversing it into the damn garage when you're putting it away

Kind if like a No Negativity 2017.

It only takes 1 person to start a movement.

Your mindset is your choice.

Negative thoughts breed negative actions. The exact opposite is also true.

We have all whinged in the past that things are going to to crap.

If nothing changes, nothing changes...

When you order a 'hunger tamers box' with a frozen Coke from the drive through at Hungry Jacks only to be told they can't do frozen cokes at the moment so you say ' just a normal Coke then' you pull up at the window and the idiot says '$1.20 please' there was a hunger tamers box with that Coke! Hehe sorry, $11.20 please, you get given the Coke while waiting for the food and you watch a different worker pouring 2 large frozen comes from the drive through drink machine when the clown that's serving you comes back you say 'I thought the frozen Coke machine was on the fritz?' Only to be answered with ' I'm not sure what she's doin? Did you want a frozen Coke? ' you give back your inferior, normal Coke and say yes, then you get tude for asking for what you asked for.... No wonder you're jockeying a register at HJ's in your late 20s

Then while driving home, basking in your success you take too big a sip and brain freeze hits you like a brick and you start thinking to yourself ' shoulda taken the normal bloody Coke!'

I HATE the ATO and the ABR and online applications and the internet in general!!!!!

Been in the process of trying to start a small business, shouldn't be a problem, bought my vehicle to use, bought all my equipment to get underway, went online to register it all, reactivate my ABN, register for my AUSkey and register for GST and that's when it all went down hill...

Tried to reactivate my ABN, went through the application process...website crashes.
I'll give them a ring I thought, like in the good old days...nope, need to do it through the website, but in the meantime we'll book you a phone appointment so someone can help you through it...
3 days later phone rings, hi Mr Steve, unfortunately I cant help you, its got to be done online and our website is down, try again when we come back from holidays...
Sunday night it works and my ABN is off and running, now for that GST registration, but first I'm told I need an AUSkey, no probs should be easy enough...nope.
I know, i'll call the friendly people at Auskey and get them to help me...
Hello, hi its Mr Steve and I cant install my AUSkey can you help please...
Yes, but in the meantime i'll speak to you condescendingly and treat you as though you're an idiot because installing AUSkey software is so easy...

30 minutes later after trying every known way to man her tone changed and she politely tells me she just received an email notifying her that their system has crashed and AUSkey's cant be installed...FFS

I'm so over this ****, it was so easy once upon a time and now some flog on a 6 figure salary has decided doing everything online is so much better, well FU...******!

At a guess i'd say your accountant would have set it up via the ATO website which would have given him the same problem if the website is down.

Its not something that an accountant needs to do. Its a simple process made difficult due to the constant site crashes that the ATO and in extension, the ABR are experiencing at the moment.

Maybe, but I pay my accountant to do stuff I dont want to do, or can use my talents in a more productive way. Same as he uses his

When a nice drive along the Great Ocean Road is spoiled by ****** **** ***** that can't do more than 35 ****** ******* kph around even the ****** ******* simplest of ****** corners!
I reckon I counted about 25 'slower car pull outs' between Anglesea and Apollo Bay and only saw 3 get used, not expecting anyone to speed along that road but is it too much to do the speed limit and if you can't, pull over so the people that can, can? It was that bad that I relinquished pilot duties just out of Lorne, took the missus about 10 minutes before she was over it too..
We came to the conclusion that the only people that see the 'slow car turn out' bays and the 'consider those following' signs are the people stuck behind..

Geez I hate.... the fact that after 8.5 trouble-free & damage-free iPhone years, and always having them look as good as new even after a couple of year's usage, I finally broke one by accident - shattered screen.

Making wood fired pizza tonight - getting up & down to "feed the oven" and it slipped out of my pocket onto the outdoor chair, and then I watched in horror as it slid down the chair & out the gap at the back of the chair - somehow one corner of the wrap-over cover had popped away, and that's the corner that hit the concrete first...... Even the tempered glass screen protector wasn't enough to save it - it fell on the perfect angle to hit the only exposed bit of Apple glass - right on the corner, sending cracks radiating over the whole screen in a fan shape.....

Oh well, $50 and a couple of days wait for a new one. God knows I've had enough practice changing screens in other family member's phones.... and now it's my turn.

When the Apprentice walks up to you when you're operating a machine and he "accidently" bumps the E-stop button and shuts down the whole thing, MID-CYCLE!!!. What an effort to get it going again, and allmost a full day in lost production. Should send him the bill for the sparky to come out to get us going again.

I get tired of people who teach L platers their own bad habits. Monavale road on the drive back home today. Pulled on going south at terry hills. Moved into the right lane to make my way past a couple of trucks that weren't really moving (their entitled, and in the slow lane, no issue there) only to come behind an L plater in the right lane doing 70 odd. By the time I got to them the trucks were moving past, and people were moving out from behind me to undertake in the left lane. It's 90 down that stretch so if you are limited to 80 and there is a perfectly good lane that flows, use it. I didn't have the go in the ute to be an undertaker because being loaded, it's been a slow day for the ute, but I did see a few people slow down whilst undertaking and hurl abuse. Once the car finally moved over I set the cruise and motored on. Couldn't set the cruise earlier as speeds were fluctuating. How did the "instructing" driver in the passengers seat not see the havoc created by putting a driver who was limited to under the speed of the giant signs for so long. There should be a compitency test to teach a learner driver. I managed somehow to sign off my wifes (girlfriend back then) log book when I was my greens. Probably lucky that we never got pulled over because I'm assuming there is a fine for that, but still, she knows how to drive, it's not that hard to be aware of your surroundings

Wasn't a burgundy Mazda 2 was it? I was coming down the F3 around 3.30 this arvo, with a group of several cars & hurtled up behind the fool in the far right lane (3 lane section) on L-plates, doing what I estimate to be 70km/h (had to slow to less than that to wait for cars in the middle lane to go past so I could get out).

Absolutely no idea of how dangerous they were, and when I honked on my way past, all I got from the "instructor" in the passenger seat was a shrug & "what" with an open mouth. For a good km more (that I could still see them in the rear view mirror) they continued to sit out there, with ample opportunities to move left, but never did.

Nah, it was a ba fairmont ghia in lighting strike. I only moved up to see if if it was my brother in my bf ghia. It wasn't. It made sense because he is looking for extra cash and mums new boyfriend is looking for a set iof hands. Still iresponsible teachings to a learner.
