THUMBS UP

TO Mar­ion, who sub­mit­ted some of these. I ap­pre­ci­ate good ideas with the em­pha­sis on good. Hu­mour is per­sonal.

TO: The BB Ware­house for trim­ming the veg­e­ta­tion by the foot­path. Peo­ple can now walk from the ze­bra cross­ing to the bus stop with­out get­ting wet from wet leaves.

TO: Modern clothes dri­ers, so sim­ple to use even hus­bands can do it.

TO: Slow cook­ers. They fill the kitchen with won­der­ful aro­mas and the prom­ise of warmth in this cold, wet weather.

THUMBS DOWN

TO: The driver who rock­eted at high speed through the red light at El­liot St on a re­cent morn­ing. Luck­ily the two first driv­ers on the one way sys­tem were a bit slow off the mark. If they hadn’t been one at least would have been wiped out.

TO: The lazy blighter who dropped their cof­fee cup in the bus shel­ter by Ware­house Bell Block. It was four steps from cof­fee cup to rub­bish bin.

TO: Me­tiria Turei who thinks that peo­ple won’t re­alise she is just mak­ing ex­cuses for break­ing the law. She never was a strug­gling solo mum. She had fam­ily, flat­mates and the fa­ther of her child all con­tribut­ing. She tells fibs and she has been busted.
