MikeB4:

 

surfisup1000:

 

 

 

Parents car parks. 

 

Ridiculous. 

 

We never had them, I just don't see the need. Being a parent does not make one disabled. 

 

I see some places have expanded this to 'elderly parking' spots.   What the heck next? 

 

 

 

 

Many elderly are frail or have limited stamina and slower. Parking close to the doors allows them to get from and to their cars easier and will not get too wet and cold especially in winter. Most places have many many car parks for able bodied but just a few for the elderly or disabled.

 

 

While I think elderly parking has more merit than parent parking, there are plenty of more-spritely elderly who will abuse the system. 

 

It is a good discussion though.

People (Idiots!) who think the Covid-19 restrictions are an excuse for extreme speeding!

 

Observed 3 of them in our narrow s-bended School Street in the last hour alone!

 

(The excessive noise makes you look)

 

Same thing happened in the earthquakes!

 

IDIOTS! Especially when you have seen the result of 2 children being hit by a car on separate occasions and many near misses since living here!

dimsim:

 

I had the same problems... thought it would ship from Auckland but ended up shipping from an Australian warehouse but very slowly... tracking said had arrived in akl but hadn't even left aus and that was after about a week. Called their 0800 number who said they'd look into it and call me back never did. Emailed them again never got a response. Arrived eventually 16 days after placing the order when the delivery expectation in their website was 3-8 business days. Pretty shoddy for such a well,known brand..

 

 

Post Haste did some investigation and are likely to officially declare it as 'lost'. It apparently did arrive in NZ but never made it further than the pickup. They're apparently going to get back to me over the next few days (I can imagine it might take a while, given what's going on now) so we'll see what happens.

The fact that the Herald continues, unlike many newspapers around the world, to remain paywalled during this crisis.

Idiots on Facebook spouting their opinions despite the Government giving quite clear instructions/guidelines/links for info.

I think you'll find that's "Thank you for your service, Mistress"...

The number of people when you implore for patience when you have x00 people to get working remotely, who assure you they understand, aren't that worried, and will prioritize work, who call, email or text 6 times a day on non urgent things.

And then you can't do this 'urgent' request without a little more information from them... which they finally get around to supplying three weeks later.

The lag and slowdown that this is causing for those many of us for whom fibre will always be a dream.
