Ori­gin frus­tra­tion typ­i­cal of sec­ond rate ser­vice

STATE of Ori­gin game two, what a match! Well, hope­fully it was a spec­ta­cle and not a dud be­cause I wrote this on Tues­day.

I had grand plans of be­ing at Sun­corp Sta­dium, cheer­ing on the mighty Ma­roons.

The day tick­ets went on sale I had the web­site loaded.

I was ham­mer­ing away at the re­fresh screen page 15 min­utes be­fore tick­ets went on sale – just in case.

The time edged closer and my credit card got ready to take a hit like Nate Myles’ ab­nor­mally large head.

And then it hap­pened, the page changed.

But in­stead of giv­ing me tick­ets it said event sold out.

Bris­bane in­ter­net is faster than Gayn­dah’s ap­par­ently.

It’s time re­gional Aus­tralia’s com­mu­ni­ca­tion net­work was brought up to par with the cities.

It’s not just our slower and more ex­pen­sive in­ter­net; it’s our com­plete lack of ad­e­quate mo­bile cov­er­age.

Miss­ing out on Ori­gin tick­ets is an­noy­ing.

Hav­ing no mo­bile phone re­cep­tion in an emer­gency sit­u­a­tion is un­ac­cept­able.
