    Is you got different treatment than K9Force who seemed to do the same thing as you. Ie reply to threads about his training or relevant to his training expertise.

    However I suspect no hissy fit member reported K9Force. Or if they did, they didn't get what they wanted for some reason.

    Moving along now. Have to take dog for walk before she breaks my ear drums. I try to explain to her - its too hot. Will hose her first I think.
    Yes that's the "point" Hy. Other "businesses" Like K9 force ... or whoever ... ... replied to a thread someone started in General or any other thread ... & good luck to them for any $s they might make. Good luck to 'em of they can make a buck ... whether thay pay for advertising or not ... I don't give a "large rodent's"

    Some "ahole" who clearly had an axe to grind with me .. apparently hated my guts ... for whatever reason .... decided to "teach me" a lesson ... and so they reported the thread some kind soul had started about the treats, which it would seem I should not have replied to at all, because in my doing so, it would appear, by my reply ... I was viewed as blatently "making money".

    I'm glad people like the treats & they order ... but now I truly wish I had never found out that someone had created a thread about them ... that I replied to .... that has now put me in the position of apparently blatently "making money" to the disadvantage of other businesses paying legitimate advertising fees for the marketing of their services or goods.

    I'm now "legal" on DOL. I pay a monthly banner advertising fee. I was informed that in doing this, I don't have to give a discount now to members ... so now I don't ... and I'm not happy about that because I'd rather you get $s off you order ... that's just me though.

    I'd prefer to give "the punters" a 10% discount with every order, so the money is back in their pockets. Looking at my figures since I've started to pay for monthly banner advertising ..... it's "cost" me more out of my own personal pocket to give the punters a 10% discount with every order rather than pay the monthly banner advertising fee & give no further discount.

    Them's the "rules" though kiddies ....

    hazing housemates Occy?

    I thought that was how you got rid of them. Or is it how you beat them into submission, and into doing all the housework?

    Or is it the cat that haz another cat - how could you fit any more cats in that house, they're already in the vertical space?

    I hope everything is ok though.
    It wasn't just me that copped it at the funeral. Hubby was in the firing line as were any other husbands, partners and basically anyone that wasn't my aunt and uncle copped an earful.

    I understand that they are hurting but at the same time lashing out at all of us, who have been there the entire time is a bit rough.

    Everything is ok, just frustrating and hard to deal with.

    Sorry for taking so long to reply here as well

    chat off topic right?

    New topic. All about me.

    Went for a walk on the beach again this morning - too hot for cricket ovals IMO.

    So there was a bloke in the water with his lovely dalmation bitch behind him and somewhat frustrated because he was ignoring her. He was looking at the dolphins, cruising along about another 300m out. Very sweet but so was his dog.

    Anyway Frosty and the Dalmation got along really well and were giving each other heaps of exercise - the beach was completely ploughed by the time I decided it was pumpkin hour and time to go.

    So I went for a swim, and Frosty did too and this guy told me all his life problems. Basically last year he lost his job. Today he moves out of the unit he has rented near the beach, he has to surrender the dog but he thinks the new unit renters want her (eek), and he might be quitting his wife too - because she is so intolerant. He got so emotional at this point he nearly yelled at me - a complete stranger. Sigh. I can see there are some problems there. He thinks it's a cultural thing - all Indians are very tolerant and all English are "Frigid". I'm thinking in my experience - most Indian men are only happy when everything is exactly how they want it and they don't notice how miserable that can make everybody else - they think it's "tolerant". Right. But I didn't say that to him.

    Anyway - not sure why he told me, I wanted to talk about dolphins and the weather. Personally I'm scared to swim with dolphins, they have big pointy teeth.

    Grrr grrr grrr, the couch I've been waiting 3 weeks for turned up today except it was the wrong colour. It was red when it should be black. Now I have to wait another 3-6 for another one.

    Hyacinth - I've met a few people like that, give you their whole life story in the first 30 min of meeting them, very strange.
    It suprises me the things some customers tell me, I dont need to know about your train ride or that your going to pick up laundry or that you have a new gardener.

    Lucky you seeing dolphins though, I've only ever seen them twice. I would love to swim with them but it would be scary, they're so big.

    Bordeaux, dolphins aren't scary at all. I've been swimming with them once in my life, and it was the experience of a lifetime. My eldest brother has had the experience everal times, lucky man! They are soooo gentle around you, regardless of their speed and size.
    Take my word for it, if ever you get the opportunity, try it.

    Hy, why didn't you tell him exactly what you were thinking???

    Hi DA

    I asked him some questions - looking to help him fix whatever, but of course that just helped me dig a bigger hole for myself. It sort of started with send the dog to a dalmation breeder for a new home if the new tenants decide they don't want her, and then we talked about immigration - cos I think if he was an Australian citizen he wouldn't be having so much trouble. Not sure about his wife, he called her "English" but I suspect she's Australian of English migrant parents so theoretically he should be able to stay - if he doesn't get divorced first. But everytime I asked him a question about what he could do to help himself - he got a little bit more um "excited" and well - scary.

    He seems to have tried all the usual things like relationship counselling but he also seems to be avoiding the idea that maybe he could change and adapt a little. Sad really.

    The dog was gorgeous.

    So I told him some of what I was thinking but you can't really do small talk with someone who has big problems - like moving house, divorce and parting with the one being that loves him unconditionally (despite his lack of attention). All he'd need is someone important to him to die and he'd have all the most stressful things in life going on at once.
