Same as Shoudy; sick off all the drivel on the TV these days, so generally avoid watching it.
All the same rubbish with a new sob-story over and over. Talkshows are just soapboxes for washed up commentators who think they're experts (count how many times you hear, "Oh, I agree with you, but...."). Let's not touch Daytime TV, that's been a joke for a long time anyway.

It is genuinely at the point where the endless re-runs of M*A*S*H* and the occasional Star Trek episode are they only good things to watch.
Will stick to episodes of "Keeping Up Appearances" and "On the Buses," thanks :) I have "standards" to maintain - somebody important may be watching!

The floor. This buildup or rubbish didn't seem like it was from that morning I saw it on. It's like having expired food/whatever it was sitting the frame for months, which was the case with 440.

A Current Affair - I know that Current affair show has been on Nine for nearly 29 years with a few presenters being hosted. Some of the stories that the presenters read can be disturbing. The use of hooning, fraud, bad supermarkets and drugs are so overused and I am sick and tired of this crap. There was a petition from Change.org that wanted Channel 9 to cancel A Current Affair. This is absolute bogan type of stuff.
Today Tonight - gone from eastern states but kept the bulletins in Adelaide and Perth. These stories have too much bias in it. I used to watch it but now I don't have the passion anymore.

Why do we have Family Feud on 6x per week + morning as well as All Star Family Feud on during one week? I used to see these episodes but now, it's too much overkill especially with the simulcasting on 1 and 11. Denyer is not a bad host, but the dribble coming from him talking to the contestants during Rounds 1-4 is very long. It's a shame that I change channels and watch Nine News Instead.
The Chase Australia - I know that Andrew O'Keefe has a lot of chemistry on Game Shows on Channel 7, however his behaviour is ballistic. His laugh and voice annoy the f*** out of me. The use of strange Italian, French and German accents is just very tripe.

And later a delivery van came. He had to reverse up the one way mall, as he couldn't get through due to that car. Just because you have a disabled permit on your car, doesn't give you a right to park anyway, & block traffic. Suppose he or she will "run" to the media now & whinge that they are disabled & may have got a ticket if he/she did a ticket.

Are you talking about the insect or the bird (an Emu is technically a bird)?

This morning while I was walking the dog, I saw a car that I thought was someone I knew in my neighbourhood(who I have known for some years and have a nice gold AUIII Fairmont), so I waved, the car then pulled up, and I was prepared to have a chat only to find it was in fact someone else, and they yelled "we don't know you, so don't wave at us", then the young guy behind the wheel gave me the bird and drove off, only realised the rego was different when they drove off.

What has happened to our sense of community?

Did he even give you a chance to explain that you mistook his car for someone you knew?

Whoever made the parking in that mall is as stupid as the driver of that car.
Towards the end of the mall all the parking bays are on the right side, then for no reason there is one on the left side. That means there is room for 2 less parking bays for no reason as far as I can see.

Why is there a single parking bay on the left where the Vitara is parked?

1. Getting back at 4:55, checking eBay and of course ending up with multiple things to drop off at the post office which is ten minutes away and in the middle of Eastland Shopping Centre. Why can't Coles take over Australia Post? At least they're open 7AM to midnight instead of stupid 9 to 5 Monday to Friday and a couple of hours on Saturday if lucky. Eastland has been open late (9PM or so) for half of December, sans the banks and of course the post office which are in complete darkness at 5:01PM. WTF? No wonder the Australian Postal Corporation is broke when no-one can do any business with them. Ahmed Fahour should rename his(?) parcels business and drop Australia Post like a ton of bricks before he gets dragged down with the ship.

2. Seeing the "laid back" casual atmosphere of the courtroom in Judge Judy or even 1990s Law and Order, and then seeing an Australian courtroom which looks straight out of the 1700s, stupid-looking wigs and all.

3. Speaking of McDonald's, WTF is with all of the 24 hour ones closing down or becoming drive-thru only?

4. Still remaining stuck in the city on weeknights with absolutely no proper way to get back because of our fusking government won't take a hint that at least minimal public transport is needed on other nights besides Fridays and Saturdays.

5. Seeing the Corruption Perceptions Index on Wikipedia and watching Australia plummet year after year. 2043: G'day Nigeria!

6. Religious extremist fuskheads. You seriously want to attack Germany of all countries? Guess which people skipped history class, specifically the 1930s and 1940s. Ironically the video of the IS idiot yelling his head off on the 7.30 Report tonight actually resembled an Islamic version of Hitler.

Judge Judy isn't an actual courtroom, it's a TV set. The cases are merely small claims arbitration.
