New Zealand Police is acting strongly against liquor licences. They opposed the renewal of licence to a couple of New World stores in Welligton, so I guess supermarkets get heavy handed so they don't have a reason to stop selling it.

 

 

 

 

They don't properly stock it - you can't even buy spirits for some odd reason. Never understood that - I used to buy gin and whisky in Tescos if need be when I lived in the UK. Alcohol is alcohol: either stock it or don't. Why the split?

 

I'm amazed though at the number of people I see who appear to buy nothing but alcohol.

When you see a little thing that makes you smile (speed limit increase to 110) then you do the sums and find that it'll only knock a maximum of 2.3 minutes off the WHK-TGA round trip.

The user interface on the updated MetService Android app. I've tried to like it, I really have - but it's so non-intuitive and inconsistent, it just depresses me frown

Numpties that don't know how to turn right into a multi-lane road? (In case there's any here, the rule is to turn into the right-hand lane (for the real numpties and pedants, I mean (obviously) the right-hand lane of the road going your way), NOT the left-hand one.

 

And (probably those same) numpties who, when they're turning left into a multi-lane road when I'm turning right into it, stop and give way to me. (a) We can both proceed at the same time, moron! (b) Even if it was a single lane, *you* would have right of way!

 

 

Sure, but I can see where this might be confusing for someone that doesn't know the road. He wants to turn left and as he approaches the turn he might not be able to see that the road he wants to turn into has two lanes.

 

 

If you can't tell the difference between a roadway with a one lane or two, you should have gone to Specsavers...

 

 

I'm thinking of one particular intersection that is on top of a hill and as you come up the hill and prepare to turn left all you can see of the road you're turning into are any cars that might be sitting there, nothing of the road at all. In such a situation, if I don't know the road because it's my first time driving on it, of course I'm going to play it safe if I see someone else coming from the opposite direction and is turning right into the road that I want to turn left into. I'd be a fool to just blindly hope that there are two lanes there and that I can turn into one!

Courier drivers parking on dotted yellow lines near blind corners, or is that not something small?

In Christchurch Parking Wardens turn a "blind eye" to all Courier behaviour - no matter how bad.

I'm thinking of the vast majority that aren't like that but it makes no difference to the muppets.

Brainless pedestrians that cross in the middle of the T-junction and stand right in front of your car when you're turning into the side road. Although I did get some amusement from watching them both leap in the air when I hit the horn and held it there until they scattered.

or the people who stop to answer their phones in the middle of the road





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Kia New Zealand who offer a 5 year warranty but Kia Australia have a 7 year warranty on new cars. 

 

Why the difference? 2 years is a long time.
