    I had something similar happen a few years ago, neighbour complained that his wife couldn't see past a (massive, huge, wait for it) Commodore wagon, and to top it all, it was on the downstream side of the traffic. So I said I'd move it and I only drove it forward about 2 feet, obviously they realised I was not too concerned and never bothered to complain again! Like someone else said, people are just unreasonable.

    Don't know if I'm suppose to put this on a public site but have ben stewing for days & just have to vent.

    Point 1, we have been Carers for about 14 years.
    Point 2, we have had most of our kids a minimum of 14 years.
    Point 3, no major harm, beside usual childhood stuff, has ever come to any of them.

    For over 2 years we have been asking CS to get the older kids into boarding school as the school in Doomadgee only goes to year 10.
    For over 2 years they have been telling us there doing it, all of 2019 we had 1 boy at home because they had not managed to do this.
    BUT, they managed to get 1 of our boys into boarding school within weeks 3 years ago?
    So, SWMBO & I decide that due to SC's in activity we would devide the family so the kids can do year 11 & 12 in Cloncurry.
    When first approched on the subject SC agreed this was a great idea!
    Now, after we have devided the family, spent a small furtune putting 3 kids into Cloncurry school, a large fortune getting a house in Cloncurry, a medium furtune setting up the house they tell us they are not happy the kids won't be near family!!
    For **** sake!
    The kids will be visiting Doomadgee every second week-end & there is a reason they are in Care.
    Their families don't care about them!!!!!!!
    They are NOW our family!

    So, In the past couple of weeks I have had some major spats at CS, they have threatened to stop me/us being carers?
    If they do I will take them to court, go broke but have my day.
    Rant over.
    Feel slightly better.

    BTW CS is always complaining about a lack of Careres, we have 7 kids, what are they going to do with them? Maybe send them to boarding school?
    Maybe try the Ombustman .Had complete success but with a different department 30 years ago

    Best of luck. Noel

    Stickers on fruit!
    I find them everywhere, including the fruit.
    I have to peel them off before I can eat the fruit, I don't care if they're edible, I don't want to eat them.

    LOL - not laughing type

    At the pool just walking ( what a joy) Got one - Grumpy(L) old Lady. Three elderly types putting bags on a bench when a L.O.L. shouted out THATS MY TOWELL! I appreciate the acronym LOL could be Laughing.. In this instance I hijacked it for Little Old L....

    Had to take a minute to get it all. Apparently the three interlopers had slide her towel a millimeter or two along the bench when putting there stuff down

    99% of the seat at the pool are unavailable to sit on due to towels and bags on them. Last time I checked neither of them have bums requiring a chair

    I did have to walk the other way as I chuckled. They were still at it when I was leaving. 90 ish year olds do not take things laying down

    Elon Musk Calls Bill Gates Underwhelming

    Underwhelming as Bill Gates brought Porsche not a tesla

    That qualified as grumpy I thought. As I try not to be impolite. I did not consider another term

    Instead of them 2 fighting over twitter, how about a cage match.

    Gates V Musk, no tricky stuff or tech allowed.

    My money is on Musk.
