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
