Give me back my $170

Posted July 29, 2014 into Blunty by John Birmingham

Global warming a scam? Excellent. Can I have my money back then, Mr Treasurer?

At Blunty.

Or, a personal fave, genuine complaints from the CIA cafeteria.

2. Condiments are serious business

“Please put back the individual packets of ketchup, mustard & mayonnaise. The large pump boxes of these items are not convenient to use, causing frustration & are not liked by many people.”

The above quote is merely a brief excerpt from a long and deeply impassioned rant praising the superiority of individual packets and detailing the brutal struggle of using the pumps. This poor employee even had to go through the strenuous effort of putting down his food and drink just to be able to obtain his condiment of choice. Clearly the CIA must act immediately to end this humanitarian crisis.

Your problem is likely that 2014 isn't an election year in Qld. It is in Vic, so my last water bill included a $100 bribe from the state govt's "fairer water bills initiative" (or some such). It seems to be $100 per household, regardless of size, so as a single person living in an apartment, that $100 is enough to cover approx 8 months of water.

In all fairness, even the small ones are good. What matters, really, is the combination of the two.

I have an unhappy history with condiment sachets.
Both in getting them open and also in avoiding wearing the contents.

At the risk of sounding Dinoish and paranoid, I'm not sure I'd trust the sachets. If they got them mixed up they might explode and blow your hand off.


Dino not to be confused with mutters...

Anthony,
'and paranoid' is a tautology.
The only wetwork I ever did was in a cafeteria.
Knocked a glass of water over.
It was so embarrassing.
Locating the invisible.

Or before.
Probably before.
I am good for it.
Just wait a little longer...
