    Lying customers **** me up the wall.

    Our schnitzel menu can come in schnitzel or pizza form. So a parmigana pizza, is a pizza with ham, tomato paste, and cheese. So instead of the schnitzel you get a pizza base.

    Anyway, a customers partner ordered a Malibu PIZZA. All good.

    Partner comes up and says he doesn't eat pizza, can he change it to the schnitzel. I go into the kitchen, and the pizza is getting cut up. I go out an explain to him that its already cooked and if he wants the schnitzel he has to pay for it. He retaliates with a "Well I don't eat pizza, so I won't eat it". I explain that since it wasn't our fault I won't replace it for free. He can pay it he want it.

    He huffs off back to his table, comes back 1 minute later and say that his partner didn't specify she wanted the pizza. Well 90% of my customers want the schnitzels and not the pizza, and I was on the till so A) there is no way I would have assumed it was a pizza, B) I always ask if they want schnitzel or pizza if they don't specify, C) I repeat every order back to people, and D) HOW THE #### DID YOU KNOW SHE ORDERED THE PIZZA IF SHE WASN'T SURE WHAT SHE ORDERED. Lying ####.

    Please do not take it the wrong way, just taking a jab at the show. You said there IS an alternative (like saying 1) and me, a smart ass as usual, I said ARE implying 2 or more, as anything is better than that show.

    ####in real estate agents who lack understanding and professionalism. Why do people pay these knuckle draggers so much money to open put an ad online and open a door? Seriously! Can't wait to be done with this purchase!

    (yes I know there are some that are very good at what they do - the one I'm dealing with at the moment is NOT one of those!)

    the VX that gave me 3 years of trouble free motoring then now that its my daily drive there is a new part to be replaced every week, i just replaced the exhaust after it fell off then the driveshaft craps itself so now i'm waiting for the new ones to arrive, then there is the wheel that is buckled and only realised after checking the drive shafts. then the rear camber wear that has destroyed 2 tyres and i didn't even know as its the inside rears.
    so now $210 for catback, $240 driveshafts, $1000 new wheels and tyres.....
    thought about selling it but i still like it too much and keep modding it....just bought new springs and SS front bar & skirts..i have to stop!!

    Finding a fluffing sump plug washer: Copper, M14 ID, 20mm OD and 1.5mm thick. Sounds easy right?

    Supershit, Autobastard, Repco, Speeds, Holden and Bunnings - not one, no I don't want fibre, I want what the manufacturer went with, oh great you have plugs but not washers.....

    Thank you ebay for 10, aside putting up with a drizzly oil drip for 2 days while I wait. First time my Commondore has been an Uncommondore.

    Have you tried a bolt and fastener shop? They would have had them.

    We have specialty fasteners but I missed their opening hours and will continue to through the week. They were my first thought.

    Try Commonwealth Motors. Will probably cost you a couple of bucks but at least you won't be messing around for ages trying to find one.

    waiting for some head of a tafe to apparently sign off your certificate which you need to be licenced for your job.
    its been 3 weeks since literally spending half a day running around to make sure everything was all good for them to put some tiny little tick in some box for it to be mailed out.
    this is while everyone at said tafe was handballing the job saying oh its so and so persons problem or its up to them.

    looks like they are getting a visit tomorrow and I will not be leaving until its in my hand.

    EDIT:
    should add in that what should take about a week of running around to get it all sorted out, has taken a good 3-4 months because they don't inform you of what is needed.
    gotta love it when people who have to do so little in their jobs try to handball it off to others so they do even less.
    just give the damn information, get it all sorted out and give a courtesy update if it hasn't been done. not that bloody hard.

    When will people get it through their thick heads that and I quote; (1) A driver entering a
    roundabout must give way to—
    (a) any vehicle in the roundabout;

    People just barge through, thinking that they have right of way.

    Ah well....I need my front bumper resprayed anyway.

    Getting told 2 weeks before your probation was to finish the boss doesn't have confidence in your work and is extending your probation by 3 months. Only to get told a week later it's not working out see you. Great timing. Had one weekend I didn't do anything work related and he wasn't happy about it. Also took it under my own initiative to attend business networking meetings at 7 am unpaid.

    Sorry to hear that but remember things happen for a reason. I am sure something bigger and better is around the corner. Stay positive.
