Minor and Major Annoyances




















Well, here is my new tv cabinet, pretty sleek isn't it?! I'm very happy with it, BUT it didn't turn up this morning like promised, AND only ONE guy delivered it, despite us paying $60 because apparently - being big as it is - it would require two movers... So, Dave ended up having to help the guy who delivered it... So, I'm demanding either a $30 refund, or $30 store credit, thank you very much!!!

That was the minor annoyance of today...

The MAJOR annoyance was that Dave's redundancy DIDN'T show up in his bank account this morning... He ended up calling around to try and find out why not, and got three different stories, so he decided to go into work to sort it out person to person... The money will be in his account first thing in the morning, now. Bloody hell, it seems the students held up the payments so they could fine tooth comb them, but no one bothered to tell the staff that their money was delayed, which is just symptomatic of the lack of respect the staff at Swinburne Student Union have had to endure from the student council for many years now...

Ok, so hopefully I can pick up my new laptop tomorrow...
