The only thing I agree with Trump on is when he says the WHITE HOUSE is the biggest con ever, rich diplomats having the time of their lives at our expense without having ever achieved anything.

I know Veebass is a staunch defender of Centrelink, but I just had one of their staff phone me about one of our employees. There is a form they'd like me to fill out. Cool, happy to oblige. But they want to FAX it to me. I actually laughed, I thought it was a prank call! No, seriously - fax is the only technology they possess to send me this 7 page form. They can't scan and email it. They don't have the form in soft copy. This is how our taxes are being spent?

If you're going to start up about the government and how our money is being spent :rolf: :rolf: :rolf: I get it. Wasted is more accurate, but not as funny.

Divide and conquer, defer and deflect, postpone and impede. Spend a ton but don't help anyone. It's good for the economy but doesn't help the majority of taxpayers. Grrrrrrrrrrr. :angry: And what have the Romans ever done for us? :lol: Gotta giggle.

I'm surprised that with all OUR money they waste they would've couriered it to you via Uber lol

I went to Centrelink a couple of years ago to apply for carers allowance.
Sir,what is your centrelink number.

I don't have one

But Sir,everybody has one,you must have one

No, I don't have a centrelink client number

why not sir?

COZ I"VE BEEN F@#KING WORKING FOR THE LAST THIRTY F@#KING YEARS YOU DUMBARSE! SOMEONE has to work to pay for all you freeloaders.


last year they missed 55 MILLION calls for help....55 Million ! that's more than 2 calls for every Australian.....

Maybe I'm being rascist but is that why they want to start a call centre in India? To deal with calls from unAustralians??? Maybe it's not me afterall. Maybe it's the government that is rascist. :p

I hang up if I go thru to an Indian call centre. It's not that they are foreigners, it's not that they speak English with an accent. It's that Indians talk too fast for my brain to understand them . Just ask to speak to an Australian. If not.ask for a supervisor. They have taken our jobs away coz they are cheap. Doesn't mean we have to give in. Refuse to speak to someone outside of Australia.

All your bank and phone details are with foreigners with NO security checks at all.

Rooolly? Even if you've been on hold for as long as places like Centrelink and the ATO make you wait? On a good day it's about an hour..........

I've got a spare EB Cobalt flat set (minus the D string) ... same issue, broke tuning up from 432Hz to 440 Hz.
Do you want my G string? (Wouldn't want to hear that outside a bass forum)

Wasn't there some GTG pics getting around at one stage where someone had described a particular pic to his wife as "This is me holding Mike's Dingwall", to which she replied "Oh dear, please never say that again!".
