    Funny thing is I feel like sacking this individual but there is a long drawn out process for this. Nope I'd rather they just get it right and not create extra hours of work and stress for me.

    This appears to be a common occurance.
    Washed the cars today.
    Going to rain/storm tomorrow.

    Is asking for a week of no rain and storms too much? :(

    Well not only that. The whole week (in the USA) we had a nice break, warmer sunny week. Friday, morning... about 2C, raining and forcasted the nasty weather for the next 3 days, sunny and warmer for the next week.

    I shall change the comment to "is asking for 1 day without 30c to a Storm too much" :p

    Well, probably a good choice to take the old car.
    Missed the storm that came through by about 1 hour.
    Tennis ball sized hail decided to hit Melbourne in the areas visited.

    The ignorance of tourists about Australia who decide to cancel holidays here. Bushfires on the east coast so trips out here to see to Uluru are cancelled. Deadly creatures abounding. I know a lot of famous and scenic places are damaged but it isn't the entire country.

    Sad to say but true. Most outsiders think Oz is, as big as apears on the map (small as the UK :D), literally. Australia still on my bucket list of place to visit. My biggest issue is time, way too many nice places to see and too darn big to do it all.

    Friends of mine went overseas for a holiday at Christmas time and one german guy said why are you going back , there is nothing left . Even one of the girls at work said her family in Turkey want her to go there so she will be safe . They just don't realize the size of Australia . It is about 32 times bigger than the uk .

    No direct international flights land at Alice Springs so I’d think tourists would first land in Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Pert or Cains before doing the fly/drive to A.S and then the rock. They’d probably also do some local tourist stuff at first port of call.

    So if their package first landed in Sydney and they hung around for a week before going to see Ayres Rock, then I don’t blame them if they cancelled because of air NSW quality issues. Heck their plans may have seen to drive down the coast and around to Adelaide before going up the middle... Wouldn’t blame them at all for cancelling in such cases.

    Are there ignorant tourists, hell yeah. But can anyone blame them for wanting a 100% stress free holiday considering it’s their hard earned money they are spending?

    If anyone wants to be pissed off or assign blame, state and federal governments must share in the debacle that is our bushfires. Have they even spent one $ in O.S. advertising to highlight the great places that have not been impacted by fire?

    When we get our rare drop of rain in Adelaide and everyone freaks out and drops from 110km/h to 70km/h compared to when I'm in Sydney and people speed up in the rain to get home faster :p.

    Some people in Adelaide are that afraid of rain they pull over until it clears up.

    Where I work I would say 75% of the workforce is casual if you stuff up you are out the door. One of the main problems is due to poor attendance as in days off or turning up repeatedly late for the shift .

    Considering the quality, knowledge and lack of attention of some Australian drivers this is probably a good thing.

    Yeah, years of dry roads with vehicles dripping oil on them and then followed by a rare light rain can make things very very slippery. Add to that some people may have lived during that long drought and never actually learnt to drive on wet roads in the short time they’ve had a license :rolleyes: As annoying as such slow driving can be for the more experienced and capable amongst us, I’d still cut such drivers a little slack :cool:

    Perth's fine.

    (Probs because our state didn't cut RFS funding...)

    The media's ******* ****. 70% of our media is owned by Murdoch, and the other 25% is owned by mining, gas and oil companies. The ABC's not that much better either. They're either sucking Liberal cock, or sucking Greens cock.

    Like this whole coronavirus crap. Comes up at a pretty convenient time when the Liberal government's looking pretty goddamn corrupt. Sports rorts, Union busting, refusing to past a federal ICAC, but oh no, let's go be racist to a bunch of asians who haven't set foot in china for a good decade or so. Let's **** up the economy even more. Stay indoors and keep consuming the propaganda fellas. Never leave. Just click on the ads and make them more money.

    Seriously, screw the media. The amount of people that look at that **** and consider it factual reporting scares the hell out of me.

    When all fails they take us to war, when that does not work, "Release the Kraken" (CoVid19).
