While not a fan of any talking heads, I have to come back to the old The enemy of my enemy...

 

 

That the incivility of political discourse is so low that people approve of tactics more appropriate to propaganda during wartime, as the "new normal".

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. 



I wonder if you could use that as evidence that Kia believe 7 years is a reasonable time under the CGA?

Having to wait until the bank is open on Monday to withdraw the cash for my X5. It's 2017, why can't banks be 24/7? I have a 4.4 litre V8 to drive!

My Kiwibank account is 24/7? Pay online and the ’cash’ clears in around an hour to any main bank these days?

It might disappear from your account 24/7, but it won't go to the other bank 24/7 - e.g. not between approx 11:30pm to approx 8am and not over the weekend.

Happens every time. That or the free shipping becomes the amount of the discount from normal.

 

I get sick of their BS sales and the constant emails about coupons expiring or something in my cart or wishlist has got cheaper, and when I look its like 12c less or something equally not worth me wasting time with.

People that download and register some communication app on their smartphone (Viber, LINE, Signal, WhatsApp, WeChat etc) and never use it because they "have enough apps" so they uninstall it but don't bother de-registering their number.

Communication apps that use a phone number and are too stupid to realize they are uninstalled and sort that out itself.

Followed a vehicle today that would have had 5 bulbs for their brake lights - three in the hi-stop, one each in the tail lights.

 

Only one - a very dim one - working, in the Hi-stop light.

 

This is a pre-2000 Toyota Surf, so 6-monthly WOF. Surely no way that the other 4 bulbs have gone since the last WOF check? Who is handing out these Warrants?
