Signed up for NBN last month. So slow it is un­be­liev­able. Even the dial-up from years ago was quicker. Just takes ages to load. The ADSL 2 that we had be­fore was bril­liant. What a waste of money! Thanks Tel­stra. — RH, CBD

The com­mu­ni­ca­tion from the Toowoomba Coun­cil re­gard­ing road clo­sures has be­come a joke. They stick signs in ar­eas about this and then you go to the coun­cil web­site and no in­for­ma­tion. Was told it is ad­ver­tised in Satur­day’s Chron­i­cle. No de­tails in the coun­cil’s ad ei­ther - nor any other road clo­sures. For the amount of rates we pay this coun­cil, they cer­tainly don’t ex­cel in cus­tomer ser­vice.

In re­sponse to Tony Kelly’s re­mark about there be­ing no places open in Toowoomba on Sun­days and pub­lic hol­i­days for break­fast, you didn’t do your home­work. There are places open in Toowoomba on these days. Is this lack of ba­sic check­ing out your cus­tomer base the rea­son why some cof­fee shops are strug­gling and we con­stantly read in the pa­per of ones clos­ing? — GP, West­brook

Booked flights to Mel­bourne with Airnorth. Pushed back nine hours to ac­com­mo­date for ex­tra flights. No other flights to Mel­bourne that day. Lost one day of hol­i­days. Thanks Airnorth — Not happy

5th 6th gen­er­a­tion Amer­i­cans out of work and liv­ing in tent cities with young chil­dren. Then they head to six mths re­lief ac­com­mo­da­tion. Then shoved back into tent city. They were a work­ing Amer­i­can fam­ily who lost ev­ery­thing. Then il­le­gal refugees get looked af­ter bet­ter. Be aware Aus­tralia that this is what is go­ing to hap­pen here. — CT, Cent Heights

Breast­feed­ing should be per­formed in a quiet at­mos­phere. A shop or food court is not a quiet at­mos­phere.

Why do Woolies/Cal­tex al­ways charge 2c per litre more for dis­count un­leaded at Wil­son­ton than at any of their other Tba out­lets? Is it to squeeze out a few more bucks from the less af­flu­ent de­mo­graphic res­i­dent in the area? — Lucky Phil, Har­lax­ton

Daugh­ter wanted to fly north for a fu­neral. Price from Toowoomba was 6 times price from Bris­bane. I won­der who is mak­ing all the ex­tra cash? Air­line or

Pauline was un­lucky to be in­volved in pref­er­ence deals in WA. She is to smart to do that again. She will take some na­tional party seats in Qld. — Greg, Twba

Re­gard­ing breast feed­ing moth­ers, it is bet­ter to see a hun­gry baby be­ing fed than lis­ten­ing to a scream­ing hun­gry one in shop­ping cen­tre. Do not go to beach where fe­males are top­less on the beach and have itty bitty bikini bot­toms. It is good manners to di­vert your gaze from moth­ers. — Grandma, Mt Lofty

An item in The Chron­i­cle Sat: an ex MP said how much he had done for the area when he was the mem­ber for Toowoomba North. The foundry, KR and nu­mer­ous small busi­ness closed so I think he is look­ing through rose coloured glasses. We don’t want a re­cy­cled MP. He has had his day and is past his use-by date. This goes for all pol­lies. — CA, Toowoomba

Hate the new buzz word “tradie”. It’s “trades­man”. Ap­pears any­one with a fluro shirt on is a tradie now. Should we call some­one who grad­u­ates as a nurse a nur­sie? Imag­ine that, “ex­cuse me nur­sie” ......... slap! — Dave, Toowoomba

Yes, Anita. Go fund me has be­come lit­tle bet­ter than stand­ing on street, hat in hand. How about man want­ing $5000 to go to Vic to see son he hasn’t seen in five years. Please! Give us a break! — Maggy Not a fan of “Go Fund Me” pages, ei­ther. — MS, Wil­son­ton

Mo­torists please be aware that echid­nas are on the move to mate in the area. Saw one last night in our front yard last night af­ter storm. Very vul­ner­a­ble cross­ing roads. — Mell

I re­ally en­joy the ar­ti­cles “we live here ‘cos we love it”. Views from or­di­nary lo­cals. In­ter­est­ing to see their favourite movie, book etc. — AB, East

Ridicu­lous how govt em­ploy­ees are all treated very dif­fer­ently with re­gard to salary sac­ri­fic­ing. There needs to be eq­uity. I don’t know why the unions don’t ad­vo­cate. — LJ, Tba

Yes let Pauline Han­son come. She speaks more sense more of­ten to most Aussies. — Gh, Gat­ton
