ABOUT the rental mar­ket, bunch of power-crazed real es­tate agents look­ing down their pointy noses at the poor tenant. Ex­pect­ing the tenant to kiss their over­sized be­hinds.

Can any­one tell me? why when watch­ing a sal­vage show on TV (Aussie Sal­vage) they caught fe­male mud­crabs and showed them cook­ing the same. Is that not il­le­gal in Queens­land?

Watch­ing The Chase Aus­tralia last night and apart from hav­ing to put up with the host guf­faw­ing and try­ing to speak any lan­guage ex­cept English, one ques­tion cost the con­tes­tant $1000. The ques­tion was ‘how many states bor­der WA’. The con­tes­tant said one and was deemed wrong. Who­ever sets the ques­tions and an­swers should know the Northern Ter­ri­tory is not a state.

Re: Jodie Zam­mit’s let­ter about Mark Knight’s car­toon sketch (of Ser­ena Williams). I ap­plaud you. I think you said what a lot of peo­ple were think­ing.

Well done to former Mackay Cut­ters cap­tain and cur­rent Townsville Black­hawk’s player An­drew Davey for se­cur­ing an NRL con­tract with Par­ra­matta, fol­low­ing on from Black­hawk’s player Reece Martin. It shows there is a path­way there for play­ers young and old. Hope­fully a Cut­ters player will do the same be­fore too long.

Re: RD, Mackay (Daily Mer­cury, 15/09/18). I know lan­guages do change but in my home, plus my son’s home, we make chil­dren al­ways call them by the right Aussie way. They say patty cakes. Af­ter all this is Aus­tralia, not Amer­ica.

I have a grand­daugh­ter who is study­ing to be­come a nurse, who has given up a lot to do so with no help from the gov­ern­ment. You would think they would get be­hind peo­ple who want to do so. If you are on the dole you get bet­ter looked af­ter. I just wish they would help in some way, un­til the stu­dents have time to work, then this help would fin­ish. I know my grand­daugh­ter would love to earn her own money and pay her own way but with all the study she has to this is im­pos­si­ble.

RE: DW Grasstree beach (Daily Mer­cury, 15/09/18). Some peo­ple who work with the pub­lic in any sec­tor can be drama queens. They do not know how to deal with peo­ple and en­joy in­cit­ing sit­u­a­tions. The job is about that pay packet a lot of times. I hate it too. Es­pe­cially be­ing treated con­de­scend­ingly when own­ers or bosses aren’t around. AZ, Mackay
