ALL OF THAT STUFF WAS BROKEN CRAP MATE


I hate that too. We get the bulk rubbish pick ups. I leave it until the morning of the pick up to put out anything in bags or boxes. The scumbags rip them open, tip them out and the wind blows it all over the street. Infuriating.

Not sure hate is was I feel at hearing that. Its more like 'oh fuck what again?'

Its a difficult emotion to condense down to single word. Maybe 'facepalm' would be the most accurate.
I got a fever.

Yep, Sad is the word. Surprise is definitely NOT the word.

I must say, this is all getting out of hand.
Something "bad" happens in life and the first thing people do is set up a "gofundme" page.

Unfortunately, knowing what lowlife oxygen-stealing scum there actually are out there, I have to assume that a lot of them are nothing but serial scams.

I'm also just thoroughly sick of this general "welfare" mentality that seems to pervade.

Having worked for so long in mining & construction, I have the dubious honour of "knowing" a lot of people from these industry. People who spent several years pulling down $200k a year, blowing most of it on drugs, booze, holidays, toys, and tatoos, and now cry poverty. Scroll though their facebook page, and it goes from their new GT, to partying in Thailand, to a plug for their gofundme page because the bank is about to evict them.

Its not that I don't have sympathy for those doing it tough. What I have a problem with is those who piss away their good fortune, then stick out their hand becuase the world owes them a living.

Yep. People need to find a balance between enjoying the current spoils that comes with a large income and providing for the future. Some do it well and others make a complete shambles of it. Take Colin Barnett for example.

Too many younger people have never seen tough times and think life is "get what you want when you want".... and if you don't it is definitely someone else's fault.

Yup said this before and will say this again. It is no easier or harder to buy your first home now than it was almost 20 years ago when I bought my first home. The difference is Generation Now want everything and they want it now.. and they refuse to work for it or give up anything in their lives to make it happen.

A direct result of what happens when you bring kids believing they are entitled to everything and shelter them from disappointment and failure.

I think Dazz includes middle aged adults in his post. It's not just the kids.

Yep. Parents have a big role in this but, FMD, the school system drives me mad. Which bit of "life is hard work" and you reap what you sow do teachers not get.

I love my kids, but they have never been spoilt, exactly the opposite on many occasions, and still they don't get it.
My eldest is very smart, relatively ambitious, and well educated. She works for the government and gets good coin.

Finally she has figured out that paying rent is for muppets, and wants to buy a place. Great!
But no, she wants to buy a $0.5M apartment in the trendiest part of Canberra, and could I help her with the deposit?
How much have you got?
Nothing but there are places advertising no deposit loans (if you can tap into your parents equity.)
Told her to go away and save some money.

Now she's sick, needs to see a specialist, and guess what, no PHI.
At least she is finally learning the hard way that the Socialist Utopia is a crock of shit.

In Perth, it is tough to buy a decent house if you are on a real minimum wage. But apply yourself, get a decent job, be prepared to start small, and its not impossible.

Her Indoors has been applying for jobs lately.
Got a phone call yesterday:
"You're on the shortlist, and we'll be setting up interviews for next week. We will call you tomorrow"
"But we are still screening resumes, so if we don't call you tomorrow it means you've been taken off the shortlist and won't get an interview"


WTF is wrong with people?
