What about me when you are out there swaning around with the truck and camper. I'm stuck here doing it ALL.
I think you and I need a min of 8 weeks leave a year to make up for all these slack B*****S out there. What do you think Roachie ?

G'day Vince,
I reckon the system sux.
If I had my way, then you'd get one week's leave per year for every year you work for the company. It'd be a pain in the first few years, cos you'd only get one weeks leave, then 2 for the 2nd year etc.
But holy bloody hell, I'd be able to have 33 weeks leave this year and 34 next year........Now that I could handle!! LOL

G'day John,
Mate I always go a bit crazy (or should that be "crazier") whenever I've just been socialising with lucky buggars that either on holiday or have just come back from holidays........I find myself saying "how come those lucky so and so's can get away while I'm here keeping the wheels of commerce turning all by my bloody self????????"
Anyway, less than 8 weeks to go now til we head off to the Cape; but who's counting??
lololol

Des, It's not wasting time; it's called "client liaison" and it's a very important part of my day's work.

How on earth you got that job of yours is anyones guess....your mathematic is atrocious!!!! I am certainly not going to apply for a loan at your institution. You are tired because your mind works overtime to produce the drivel which you do AND of course you get tired dreaming up what to fit where on your Jeepny equivalent GU ....hahahahaha

The 280,000 people in hospitals are part of the first 9 million so you had better go and do a recount........and please don't get too tired doing that......

Roachie,

I'm with Alan Mac on this one - only 3.5 months and I'm outta here - REEEEETIRED - permanent, no going back, no consultancy work, no contract jobs, no more being conned into exotic overseas postings, nuffink, zilch, stuff all - just sunshine, drivin', fishin', prospectin' and lotsa cold beer.

I shouldna gone back to working after I retired the first bloody time!!

Stick with it, Roachie, I think I can see a way I can get a Centrelink Card and I need at least one taxpayer to hang in there and see me right. Thanks, Roachie, mate ;)
