I was visiting a client in Port Pirie last week and noticed a near-new-looking small excavator in the workshop (it's a hydraulic business that works on all manner of machinery). I asked the bloke what had happened to this "new" machine.

He said the owner had left it on a job site over the weekend and some @rsehole had taken the air cleaner apart and filled the cavity with dirt and put the cover back on. Exit one motor!!!

They've also had a spate of the usual damage caused by sugar or dirt placed in diesel tanks.

Just a warning to those who own and operate machinery..... be careful

A bit OT , alternatave to a flogging !

On the radio today was a story of a dry cleaner from Sri Lanka,
had problems with people stealing clothes . He catches one guy strips him off and gets into him with a steam cleaner.

The Journo must have felt a bit guilty and called the police cause the next quote was a policeman saying , Its ok we think he has steam cleaned a few people. !!!!

I am not sure how you get someone to hold still while you 'punish' them.

Morning Bucky.

The only thing that keeps my blood pressure down when it come to these people is my belief in karma or what goes around comes around.
The attitude of people like these tends (i believe) to influence how their life unfolds.
A %hit attitude gets you know where and to coin another phrase "dad things happen to bad people"
This person will get his ten fold sometime in the future.

Have a similar problem around Brisbane.

Friend use to run a dog security business for that purpose, to protect construction sites at night and to deter joy riders/vandals.

He had to be careful though since a trained dog is considered similar to a weapon from what he said. So if some one came over the fence towards him, he could use the dog to protect himself. i.e. any bites or damage had to be on the front of the person, not behind.
Evidently took a while to train the dogs to tackle the unwanted person the right way :o0
