Students doing like a half-asked task the teacher tells them to do.
Climate Denial in Politics should be banned

Tony Abbott's tactless tribute to Bob Hawke, let's hope he gets kicked out tomorrow.

Bus drivers that show "Not in Service", but change to a passenger route number on the highway instead of where they should change it, thereby missing the starting point & the main bus stop at Charlestown.

He/She missed about 20 passengers by doing that. Drivers who do that unless they breakdown should be sacked.

Sounds like an oversight. I hope you've reported this, but how did you notice in the first place? I wouldn't be bothered by less folks being a board a bus I've caught intentionally.

Transit Officers / Police only being used on Trains / Public transport as a means of fare compliance. They can't be everywhere but I dislike how once their done checking fares they hop off at the next station. Generally on the Hunter line it's mostly safe during the day but I think I speak for everyone when there's a TO on the train we do feel safer.

How could the two main stops for that route be an "oversight"?
If it was an "oversight", he or she would've most likely gone around the block to get back to the starting point.

This route could have traversed the entire length of Earth to the moon, or even the sun for all I know. It could have even entered a time capsule formed within the Bermuda triangle. All these are possibilities, since I have no idea whatsoever which route it was, which direction, or where it was meant to start, and the prevailing conditions/detours, whether or not the bus dr...... Er you get the point :).

• Channel Ten (or is that TEN in capitals?) he was Peter Falk, NOT Peter Falf!

Considering you always use the wrong "there" in posts, it's a bit hypocritical of you to criticise someone else for a spelling mistake.

The group of retirees from a certain retirement village who shall not be named leaving one again their shopping carts blocking elevator access and shopping centre access. They are the most inconsiderate people I've seen so far this week already. The other week it was them leaving shopping carts right in front of the entrance doors blocking half of the entrance off. This week they've decided they needed to block elevator access as well (The whole elevator doors were blocked so if you were wanting to go in / exit the elevator you'd need to slide the carts out of your way before you exit)

If there was a fire exit door where they get picked up from by their minibus, you'd be yourself they'd obstruct that fire exit door with their shopping carts because their too inconsiderate and selfish to move their cart 5m or so out of the way so it's not blocking anything. This is the 2nd time, and it's definitely going to happen again next week.

Me - For forgetting there's Rail replacement happening between Maitland and Scone today. May have to try and make my way up to Maitland station but I'm not liking my odds sadly of being able to make it. Wednesday and Thursday I'm elsewhere :(

Parents that take children out of prams then hog the spaces without folding the prams - especially when the pram takes up three seats.

If they take them out of prams, they should be forced to fold then up. She doesn't need a jumbo pram just for one child.

That may be so for the House of Representatives but for the Senate it can certainly lead to someone with very few votes getting elected because they are nominated as second choice by groups higher up the tree.

I walk up to the Deli at the worst Woolworths store in the Newcastle region (see my post history in here to get a history of which store I'm probably talking about), I point out to the staff member I'm interested in getting something but she just looks at me and turns around and walks off to go and talk to another staff member instead, doesn't even say "sorry I'll just be a moment" or anything, we made eye contact so I know she definitely saw me. That is disgusting and poor customer service Woolworths. You bet your oath I went and talked to the manager about that one.

I got the most fake "sympathy apology" from the manager on duty. Not the first problem I've had with the deli staff here. Thankfully I only go to this particular Woollies once a week because Involved in a session and the only supermarket nearby is of course this Woolworths, no Coles but there is an Aldi but they don't really have what I need.

Then there are those lazy mothers that go around pushing a stroller with their 2 or 3 year old kid strapped in it so the kid doesn't run off

Nah, actually referring to the store who has baskets before the entry doors so every time you go inside those "anti-theft" buzzer things go off. Then again they just about go off at anyone who enters the store. No one pays attention and it is filtered out by background noise but defeats the intended purpose of it.

The Coles at Port Adelaide here in SA doesn't even seem to have censors that detect theft. Or at least not in the self serve section. I know this from personal observations which I won't comment any further on.

Melbourne St East Maitland, the road down there is in total disrepair with bumps and holes just about everywhere and the council is only interested on fixing the gutter side of the road. Then again what better would I expect from a council that spent over a million installing an overpass for one side of the road and not both?

I wonder if a certain Adelaide metro operator would fit this category.

But anyhow, getting 3 trips in a row on Custom Coaches Jackpot CB80s. Can't stand the poorly built rotboxes. Only tedBus is worse.
