Ah. It’s a bit less green if you have three cars though…!

 

 

Have five at the moment. Can only drive one at a time though.

The joker who filed a complaint against me for causing noisy engines to roar at night in front of his house in another part of town. I was at home at the time and the police are probably not smart enough to see that the number plate belongs to an e-car.

That HM the Cat, a somewhat loof rescue kitty who was happy to sleep near you but never in close contact, has decided to become a glued-to-the-lap cat since the return from overseas. Initially it was kinda cute because she's never been a lap cat, but now it's becoming a bit of a pain with your lap permanently occupied. She's never done that before after a trip, and it's not a health thing (seeking warmth), she had her checkup a month or so back and wasn't doing it before leaving.

Aww she missed you, however be suspicious, she’s a cat, there could be ulterior motives and when you least expect it her newly sharpened claws could punish the slave for going AWOL.

All cats are loofs. Have to query why you sent the cat overseas - was it to teach her a lesson for being standoff-ish? Sounds like cruel and unusual punishment. Also sounds like it's not the first time she has travelled.





Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

My dad's cat has always been the kind to sit in a different room when visitors are around (including me!). She only really gets affectionate with dad.

 

Over Christmas, my brother and his wife visited for a week, and brought their dog. After that week, the cat was much more affectionate to everyone. We wondered whether she felt like she was being replaced, and wanted to prove something.

 

Over the subsequent months she went back to her old ways.

I'm hoping HM does that as well. It's nice having a lap cat from time to time, but it's been three days solid now and there's so many other places to coat with a fine layer of cat hair...

 

 

PS: If anyone would like enough cat hair to make a spare cat, PM me.

Selfish dick who parks his commercial vehicle outside our house for up to 4 weeks or more at a time... taking a spot where our visitors would usually park. 

 

This time, he is now at 3 weeks, and there are cobwebs spreading through the inside the vehicle. 

 

I realise we don't own the roadside parking, but this is really annoying.

Call the council and report it as an abandoned vehicle?

I asked, it has to be there 6 months minimum. The longest it has been parked is 2 months. So, there is little we can do. Although, I do notice that the warrant and rego are both expired, so, I'll give the council a call on that one.

When your service ticket is closed by the help desk within 3 minutes of raising it. No contact at all from the help desk and the issue has not magically resolved itself.

 

 

 

Off to raise another ticket.

Received a change request the other day that was word-for-word identical to one from last week, which had supposedly already been implemented. When I queried this, I got back something like "no no, last week's was for Rotorua and this week's is for Tauranga" along with a screenshot of some document that wasn't attached to the change request. Mind reading powers, activate?

Outlook. 

 

Works for weeks on end flawlessly. Then just stops connecting on Laptop. Works fine on mobile. Also nearly works on virtual machine. Just won't work on the laptop. 

 

Then, after a call to IT, to have the issue investigated, it starts working flawlessly and the helpdesk can't understand what my problem is.
