Honeslty, it's soul destroying. I have felt really gutted for the past 3 days about it. No way you miss causing this much damage.

 

My kids are taught about exiting the car to ensure their fingers cover the metal to provide a barrier and to show others cars, even old ones, respect.

Mine is always the loneliest car in any car park, I hate door dings and the people who cause them.  Makes it doubly annoying when you park in the remotest corner of a large car park and someone still has to park right next to you.

 

I haven't tried them yet, but the feedback for paintless dent removal services seems quite good, providing the paint is intact

This text from Spark - "since you're using up minutes, how about adding a talk unlimited extra?".

 

Um, hello Spark but your app says that I have the maximum accumulated rollover of 500 min talktime, plus 190 out of my 200 current allowance.

 

Are these just random texts, Spark?

Australian Airport Exit times. Stupidy long queues, I mean multi hour waits to get through luggage check as you leave the airport with only 2 scanners operating.

 

Have had the issue at Brisbane and Melbourne on Multiple trips.

 

Compare this to NZ with smaller numbers of travellers and many times more people operating lanes.

Try to avoid visiting large car parks on windy days. As people open their car doors, not knowing that it is windy outside. Wind catches the door and smashes it into your car.

Dad had the same problem ordering Office 365 from them. Still waiting for it nearly two weeks after placing the order.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I just cancelled the order. They are not alone on the intertubes.

 

BTW: You can order Office 365 online, directly from Microsoft and just download it. :)

Geektastic: People travelling who appear to have no idea how security or passport control work and just get in everyone else's way.

 

People who don't understand why people don't know how airport security works. On my last trip (4 security queues) I had to put my kindle through separately (like laptops) as the latest rule in one airport was anything larger than a phone. External batteries (I had 2) had to go through in separate trays in another airport.  Some airports require ipads to be separate, some don't. Some US airports require removal of shoes and/or belts, some don't. Some require the toiletries to be separate, some permit them in the same bag. 

 

No wonder people don't always know how security will work in an unfamiliar airport.

Microsoft lets multiple accounts have the same email address. Drives me bonkers. I set one up myself initially, using my work email address, and then IT set up a new one using the same address. Of course, anything "IT-provisioned" ends up in one, and other stuff is in the other...

Not for $99. The last time I checked, it cost more than that from a distributor. Cheaper to wait for retailer discounts.

Contrast arrival times. Took me less than 10 minutes from walking off the plane to leaving the terminal with my driver when I arrived at SYD on Friday.

The ones I refer to are the ones who don't know how it will work in ANY airport...!
