33c. 38c humidex.

Not only am I sweating like a dog if I try to walk my usual pace or carry something, but the humidity has my trousers stuck to my crotch or thighs so I can't quite run.

I have no idea how some men were buttoning their jacket. I saw one with a laptop bag and garment bag carrying them in the sun. I even saw a man with a double breast jacket, buttoned, tie on and a hot coffee in hand.

Those handy summer fabrics can help you pull-off a jacket under those conditions.

When your superior overrides you right after you said to your staff you'll present the case upwards and stand by them. Why am I even here? My superiors can just issue direct orders without a useless buffer like me.

My landlord changed his mind last night and wants to sell again. Coming to photograph the flat on Thursday evening.

Also my parents are selling their house by August. Now I have two homes to vacate in Q3.

I have a feeling my landlord is trying to sell to get me out. Can't find a one bedroom flat in my complex for less than $2100/month including utilities. I'm on $1675 + utilities but last year the government put in rent control so it can't go up very high. I could go for a $1475/month bachelor from 40 year old building or a 383 sq ft bachelor for $1750/month plus utilities. As rents are at an all time peak, it's not the best time to go renting.

My brother suggested I move into one of those condo hotels that come with only a microwave. I still want to be able to cook and the one he suggested is not only known for being a place that hosts escorts but they literally prey on you downstairs in the hotel bar. At least to me these days that's not an amenity.



I believe the point of the thread is to elicit sympathy, and failing that empathy.
If you want to cook in a "microwave" place you can get an induction portable top here very cheaply. Single spot = around $80. And double not much more. Only trouble would be ventilation. 383 sq ft is bloody small tho - (you sure thats correct?)you wouldn't want to get a cat try to start swinging it!

Ventilation in my place is already poor. I would want an oven, though, to make roasts and bake or broil things.

Why don't you buy the flat?
Because property prices are at an all time high. Houses exceeded 1M and within the city are almost 2M so people have switched their buying sprees into flats. My staff had a 1 bedroom unit that in a little less than 2 years she made 250k-300k on it.

And of course if I buy it, how will I transfer to the Singapore office on a whim?

I thought you were coming to Oz. Just rent it out to some sucker like yourself.

I waited 6 1/2 hours in a 5 hour service window for someone to fix the internet at this house. I got the service call waiting 1 hour on the phone between 2 call centres yesterday. No one bloody showed up and now I have to reschedule.

I'm looking for a place to rent on there. Now I'm worried. Maybe I should go back to Kijiji.
Turns out two of the used chairs dude has listed is marked 70% more than the new retail price from the manufacturer! He has real photos of his apartment too with multiple furniture items for sale. Dunno what troll interest possibility there is in this.

Everyone needs to make a profit somewhere. Perhaps it's end of the line sales. Rare!

For once it would be nice if a woman I'm seeing tonight is on time and not running late, needing more time, or whatever else. For once it would be nice if she didn't delegate coordinating other people due at the event that we're late.

Just once...just once. Is it too much to ask for?

You allow these women to treat you like this. You have absolutely no one to blame but yourself.

Yes, already dealt with. We have a good relationship, nothing gets left hanging, which is great.

Didn't help that I was in a foul mood yesterday for no specific reason.
Unfortunately when it comes to people's moods it's not quite math where two negatives make a positive.

Good to hear you're through it though.

Side of the car got scratched up across two doors. Doesnt look like a keying but rather like the metal edge of a shopping cart or something similar.

If the can of tonic that exploded on my mobile at the airport restaurant (so much for sobriety) on Sunday didn't kill my mobile, the puddle of water from the condensing plastic glass of water and a very humid mouldy A/C did on Wednesday night. Some keys just plain don't work.

Pikeys,

They are moving in all round. Police cannot kick them off immediately. Meanwhile they dump shit all over and cause problems. In Tolworth today.

British police are useless now, having been infiltrated by Communist, Common Purpose graduates like Cressida Dick. They come out with nonsense like ‘Put yourself in their place. Imagine having to move every few days.’ They are gypsies. That is what they do!


At least in Eastern Europe gypsies get persecuted for taking liberties. Over here they do as they please.

At what point do you stop fighting when at every facet you are scraping and struggling to get back to the same or marginally comparable?

If you get push back at every juncture - to normal people is it not a sign? Why bother to fight?

The UK police have become a laughing stock. If they weren't so corrupted or parts of the UK descending into anarcho-tyranny it would indeed be funny.
