    And that's why they drag the chain, refuse to do things when asked for the 6th time that day or stuff them up ... to get us to do them.

    Hubby was the same many years ago, I got so fed up. I then threatened to ask a neighbour to do it, I did and he did the job and hubby was so embarrassed. The next time I called the neighbour hubby came home and had started the job before he arrived. There was no next time needed as all it took was..."I think I will call....

    Yes, that's why I've put the email request in Di. I used to have "Hire a Hubby" brochures lying around, but obviously that was too subtle. *chuckle* You should have seen it yesterday when the plumber was here putting in the new wall oven. He was hovering around (no need to really). When they pulled the old one out, he said "OMG. That looks awful. I'll clean that up immediately. Can't have my Honey knowing that there's all that mess & grime in there." Paleese. *rolls eyes*

    I figure if I pay some guy to come in & do all the sorts of stuff he can fix in 5 minutes if he wanted do, maybe it will be just the rocket up his *who har* that's been needed for so long now.

    I am so glad that you were a lady and refrained from rolling your eyes, and kicking him in the bum. GSD, lol.

    Well, one must be the modicum of decorum in front of the tradies now, mustn't one. Good ones are hard to find, they'll be useful to me in the future & I wouldn't want to scare them off, now would I.

    I scare the bejesus out of Tradies in a number of ways. I can talk like they do right down to the naughty PC not jokes. I expect work to be done with some care and the mess cleaned up after - or at least an admission that they're leaving the mess to me because it's cheaper that way. I tell them if I don't like how something's being done. I ask them why they're doing things the way they're doing them. I tell them if I like what they're doing and I buy them a slab. And I usually - if I know in advance - tradies are coming, have a load of yummy high calorie food available. And most of them hate that cos they're saving their calorie allowance for beer. And I almost never have any beer in the fridge. I for one don't think tradies work better on a beer. Bleck. After is ok but during = no way.

    I'm not very good at imitating a brainless blow up doll - and that alone freaks them out.

    So has everybody in SA and Tas voted yet?

    There are heaps of grownups out wandering the streets looking for a polling booth. It's not at our local school this year, no idea why. It isn't at the local RSL either...

    And people were doing crazy things on South Road when they spotted a polling booth in a church right on South Road. South Road would be the busiest road all day every day, in Adelaide.

    If you're in SA and you still don't know where your booth is (and damn if google can't find Polling booth if the website has it under polling "places")

    Anyway
    here tis.
    ECSA : Election 2010 : Polling Places

    And when I did go to vote, they were asking for an "electoral card" and nobody had one. So that worked really well. ID card for voters? Not this year.

    Ahhh the slab. We bought one of those transportable homes, came in 3 pieces. I think I have told this story before. One of the blokes supergluing it all togather used to be a shearer. We had 2 poddy sheep, huge (they loved dry cat food) that our regular shearers took one look at and rejected shearing as they were so bloody big.(it usually needed big bribes and coin flips to see which would do it) On Knockoff, before the blokes went back to the pub where they were staying we brought in the tractor...a pallet, a slab of beer or two, the portable shears, built a fire, invited a few neighbours, had a barbie and watched them being shorn... car spotlights trained on the action) They ended up with mohawks....hey I wonder if That is where I got the idea for mine. Afterwards the lovely shorn ones wandered around us looking for treats. They broke in TO us from the paddock, lol. We later sold all the sheep except them and quite soon they thought they were cows and were off with the herd.

    All voted. The new e-books have certainly made a difference. No more standing there while I spell my surname for them, over and over. Duh.

    Husband and I voted entirely different. Twas funny, we had a running debate going. Then we had tea so it's all forgotten now.
