We'll put a spread on in the office mostly just as an excuse to have a nice lunch, I mostly wish it was a day off for all of Australia just so I could go home and go back to bed, been single dadding it the last couple of weeks while my partner is in Perth having some brain scans done and some treatments for her issues with her memory and critical thinking. could really use a day off to chill out in my underpants

I really liked when Canberra had it as a public holiday - until some idiot bureaucrat noticed the sheer number of 4 day weekends and thought that to be a problem.

The office is actually pretty quiet here. Was even able to eat my lunch in the breakroom! Just to be safe, I've got the earbuds in and the music cranking.

Decided to give maccas at Melbourne Tullamarine airport a chance with their mcflurry. Girl who served me was quite generous with the ice cream overflowing on one side. She should get a promotion for restoring customer satisfaction.

Our local is open 24 hours on weekends, after a certain time of night we get it for free so you best believe we stock up :P

That said their McFlurry game is most definitely not on point.

My saga with Toll has finally come to an end (I hope) but there was one final bit of drama.

I was expecting an SMS to alert me of them coming. The people I've spoken to on the phone have all said that the email/sms alerts gets sent when they leave the depot (usually ~10:30am) which gives me enough time to get home if I'm out. So, I go out this morning to get some breakfast and groceries so I can cook whilst I wait for the courier to come. As I'm getting home around 10:25am , I see their truck parked on the street and the courier has dropped off the package despite no signature from me, nor approval to drop off the package without a signature.

I guess I should be grateful that they got the date right finally.

I get most things delivered to work so that I know someone will be there to get it
Only problem with that is when it comes to the Christmas period where our office shuts between Christmas and new years day.
But it is still better than finding notices left at home saying an attempt was made.

I use parcel lockers when I can. The posties are fucking hopeless when it means taking the 8 seconds to buzz the door and just leave cards for collection.

I use to do this but then I went back to working for the Government and the security measures make it more troubling than getting it delivered home and asking for a day off. This was also a bulky 20kg item which wouldn't have been possible for me to lug on a 15-20min walk to the train station.

my town only has PO boxes so unless you get something couriered you always have to go to the post office, thankfully I have a good relationship with the courier in town, its one company that does TNT, Toll, Star Track so my stuff always shows up pretty quick at my work.

A friend recently had lost like half her stuff by the removalists when she moved interstate. Another guy who used the same mob and moved between the same states posted a (negative) review saying he's been delivered other people's stuff. We're hoping some of her stuff ended up with him.

God bless the internet for connecting people.

Maaaaaaaaan, I don't know who I've pissed off but over the last few days I've been hounded by call after call from Anguilla, all scam calls. Telstra hasn't been helpful, and I can't block them because they ring from a different number each time.

Had a headache for the second half of yesterday and what I bought for lunch yesterday disagreed with me that today I have a tummy ache as well as the headache (from staying up all night).

On the brightside, if I'm still sick tomoz, I get to stay home for Diablo 3 season 12 start day... I just won't be in a state to play it properly - lol

Last night I woke up at 2am and couldn't get back to sleep until after 4. Gonna be wrecked by the end of today, and living on caffeine until then. Hoping uses a one-off thing, though given this month is crunch time at work, I doubt it.

Weird, exact same thing happened to me last night, for the exact same time period (2 till 4) :shock:

Good old Telstra, apparently they can't do anything to stop the near non stop international calls I'm getting

The problem is when you pick up there is no-one there, just a voice recording saying to stay on hold to speak to someone, then it hangs up. I've pciked up 3 or 4 of them now and they do the same thing, or leave voicemails the same.

Surely they can just block all international numbers from calling you?

Probably also an app you can get to do the same thing.

Are you seeing any numbers they use repeat? It might be a case of being resilient and blocking every number they use assuming they cycle through a set of numbers.
