A wellington problem.
People that get on a bus when its empty and sit in the back row knowing they will want to get off after a short distance when the bus is absolutely full with standing room only.
It means they push past all people in narrow isle against the flow of people trying to move down the back and delays the bus at the stop while we all wait for them.

 

Grrrr

The fact that the starting of a reality show on TV can take over both the herald and stuff pages with crap about the contestants - less than 10% of people in the country even watched it!

Assuming you're talking about The Bachelor, it was all over the radio this morning as well. If I want to know what's happening on the show (and I don't) I'll watch the damned show. It's almost as if the company that produces the show, or TV3, has commercial interests in newspapers, magazines, lifestyle websites and commercial radio.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

Mediaworks do own commercial radio stations, a lifestyle website, and a news web site with an 'entertainment' section. MoreFM has been doing a lot of marketing around The Bachelor.

I assume any of the crap they talk on the radio is either scripted cross promotion or paid placement, why else spend time talking that they could be playing ads?
