    I think they do that in Vegas too, we have a 311 # for non emergency calls. I've used it to report a malfunctioning traffic light a few times that they never fixed and had to find a new route. Well I did run it once when no cars were coming and it wouldn't give me a left turn light after 3 cycles.

    My turn lol. I sit down and a civilian operator has put in a job as stealing of petrol, person filled tank, didn't have money to pay, arranged to come back and hasn't. I pointed out it was a civil matter as they agreed to let him go and he needed to call them back and tell them police weren't attneding. He said how about you do that for me then because it's better coming from police. I may have replied how about you fix your own mistakes, might teach you to not make it again. He's gone quiet and sulky

    Here we pay first before getting fuel, either CC or cash inside.
    Did you know there is a Face Book bring back Firefly page with a place to order the characters you collect.

    Ok Today's winner so far for Emergency line calls
    "Hi I want to report I'm being threatened by a woman in Burnie".
    "Ok where are you calling from?"
    "I'm in Queensland"
    "By any chance is the threat being made over Facebook?"
    "Yes it is actually"
    "Block them"
    "Block them?"
    "Block them"
    "Ok I've done that now what?"
    "Hang up, I've just solved your problem"

    2184 km apart.....

    Today I'll be flying to Boston. I'm really excited about going, but I'm not excited about the fact that I'll be without a knife.
    I don't own any TSA legal knives plus I won't be checking any luggage. :(

    I'm, grudgingly, OK with aggressive handicap enforcement - though they tend to hand out the permits like candy around here. Don't get me started on the creeping tide of "other" reserved spots...

    My university had the same predatory enforcement jag-engr experienced at his, coupled with an instant tow/impound on second ticket (even if the first was yesterday). The impound yard was about a mile from the school and they charged $350 to release your car. Same school had an equally insane library fine policy. I still owe fines on two books I never checked out and supposedly kept for a year (one on whales and another on marine bio-diversity, I was an honors Chem major with a Poly-Sci minor, so, a blatantly obvious clerical error IMO, I had no luck getting a manager to budge). They told me they wouldn't give me a copy of my transcript or diploma until I coughed up $275 for the fines. I managed to convince the Registrar's office to give me my diploma but they held their ground on the transcript, luckily, no one in the "real world" has ever asked to see one :)

    Cheers, Ted

    I'm mildly upset that they make videos like this bloody Gummy bear song.
    That my lovely wife and daughter "simply must show " me.
    That then gets stuck in my brain and I hum it , till I have to find some real music to push it out.



    Aaaarrggh! It's worse than the Frozen song. That's really saying something. My brain has burn-in from that song.

    My daughter just showed me this one too.



    Saying :" daaaad! That song is sooooo old haven't you heard it yet, it's like 2 years old!! "
    Euurk! So weird. And kinda catchy in a mildly upsetting way.

    My "lovely " wife just paid $1.79 for the stupid gummy song and put it over her BT speaker to "culture me" . She better do baking today. At least she followed it with the new Megan trainer video which is kinda cool and bouncy. :)
