Young females are a special kind of insolent, like the one who couldn't understand that the fries they sold me were not up to scratch and gave me that stare that saying I'm crazy. It took a female manager to step in and give me a freshly made batch that tasted far better.

You guys are unlucky when it comes to fast food screw-ups. I had Red Roster / Chicken Treat screw up my order last week and give me cheesy nuggets over damn chicken ones. I've never had RR nuggets before so I couldn't tell what I got was right till a asked a friend about it and said "I think something is off". I've never seen a nugget full of "liquid" (which was the cheese inside of it). Friend had a try of it and said "you've got cheese ones alright" so I took my order back to the counter and asked if these were chicken nuggets or cheese nuggets. The girl stared at it for a good 15-20 seconds and then she said "No" and went off to replace my nuggets free of charge (remember I ordered the chicken one, not cheese)

Only took 2 minuets for them to come out with what I actually ordered. And they didn't give me a receipt so I'm just as lucky I got them replaced on the spot and we were eating in.

Both Nuggets were bland in taste to say the least but overall I'll take chicken ones over cheese (Not a fan of it) any day of the week.

Where does NBN get their so called news readers now, OR who writes the news for them & that sometimes includes radio news?

It's Charlestown, with a "w", not Charleston, as you just read out.

Small minded drivers who obviously speed up in the next lane as soon as you put on your indicator, to prevent you from getting in. What can I say? Driving, like drinking, brings out a person's real nature.

Little sh*ts who terrorise bus drivers, ride on top of the bus & misuse of emergency features such as the door release and running in front of the bus to play chicken. All mentioned in an article I posted in the recent private observations thread (NSW)

And our law for letting these under age people get the usual slap on the wrist and away they go back to their descriptive nature sh*t. It's going to take one serious injury before any changes are looked into but not acted upon ain't it?

CB80 sh!theaps... You'd think the golliwogs that built them would have lowered the stop button on the pole behind the centre door by now with new builds! And the squeaks on 1922 were so unpleasant and irritating towards my ears even whilst sitting at the front.

Were these seriously not purchased at a Davoren Park garage sale? I can't believe that bus companies believe they're gifting everybody by trying to have them on as many services as possible....

The interior lighting is reasonable, but they look awful in the AdMet V2 livery in comparison to the yellow one, and disgust me when I see one coming in the distance.

And also - passengers that sit directly in front of me on a near empty bus. It's worse when they're humming some unknown sh!t loudly.

Don't tell me the Australian Biased Channel news readers are going the same way?

Surely, an ABC news woman would know how to pronounce "Wagga Wagga".

Take it you haven't been to Perth then...
I liken the CB80s (in Darwin) to something near to a religious experience, considering the types of patrons and the prevailing weather conditions, those vehicles still smell like new after 3-4yrs on the road now and the fit/finish of the vehicles (O500LEs) is spectacular. Of course, a big Mercedes 6cyl diesel mightn't exasperate body defects in the same way a Volvo 7L diesel or Scania 5cyl might...
