Teeth are small, but very annoying when they decide to play up.

 

If I had an abscess in my finger, I'd go to the doctor, and it would get fixed up and stitched up for maybe the price of a doctor visit - $50 or so.

 

When I have an abscess in my tooth, its time to consider topping up the mortgage!

 

These luxury bones are gonna make me poor.

I'd be very very surprised if you went to your GP and got a surgical procedure for $50 :)

 

Still cheaper than teeth though. I think dentistry is the biggest rort in NZ going. It's overdue for disruption.

My computer needs yet another Win19 reboot that I'm NOT looking forward to!

 

Sheesh...I've done more reboots due to updates in the last month than Win7 required in a year!

 

(At least it seems that way, and Win7 updates didn't break anything for me!)

Drivers who keep pace with you when you need to change lanes. You slow down, they slow down. You speed up, they speed up.

You might be right, but the only actual experience I have is my mother in law who had an abscess on her finger, went to the doctor, got referred to the hospital who fixed it for nothing.

Well, that's the public health system :) The GP didn't do the actual surgery. It would depend a lot on the individual practice and GP themselves if they felt confident to do it etc.

 

I digress, and we agree, dental care in NZ is stupid expensive.

The community newspapers that keep turning up in my mailbox (we have two in Blenheim), despite the sign saying 'no papers'.

 

They go straight in the recycling.

The cost of medium popcorn and drink at Hoyts in Auckland is now $17. They seriously need to get a grip!

 

I understand it's a choice to buy it, but it wasn't even hot!

I went to the movies a little while ago with my 9 year old son and it was $20 each for BOTH our tickets, no kids price.  Add the candy bar snacks on top of this and its getting too silly, for that money we could do a lot more as a family and for longer than 1.5hrs.

Smart meter needs to be read manually, more than six months now.  Power company doesn't want to solve the issue.

 

Anyone else have this issue?

I have sent feedback through to Hoyts about this, they will likely ignore me, but it's ensured I won't be going to the theatre any time soon. It's not a matter of being able to afford it, its about value for money.

 

I've never considered taking my own food before, is this allowed these days?

Not allowed, but unless you're pretty blatant you can subtly walk it in (its handy to have someone with a big purse in your party), they don't frisk you or anything.

Depends on the theatre or chain, I think. In PN it was allowed, so you could buy ice creams in the food court when it was immediately downstairs from the theatre. But no hot food allowed, I guess so people don't stink the theatre out with fish and chips. But that may have changed since Event Cinemas took over, but I couldn't find it on their website.
