THE THUMBS

Dubbo Photo News - - In Focus -

Thumbs Up

to Dubbo Meals on Wheels, and a big thank-you for let­ting our daugh­ter help in the of­fice and go out one day a week de­liv­er­ing.

Thumbs Up

to all the peo­ple who have helped with do­na­tions etc for the fam­ily whose home in Welling­ton was de­stroyed by fire on July 30. It’s been a won­der­ful show of com­mu­nity spirit and sup­port. &

Thumbs Up to the fam­ily using the re­verse vend­ing ma­chines in Vic­to­ria Park. In­stead of throw­ing empty card­board boxes into the garbage bin, they eased the tabs and flat­tened them. Bet­ter in their re­cy­cling bin than more un­nec­es­sary waste.

Thumbs Up

to the Munro fam­ily and Dubbo Photo News for shar­ing their story and pho­tos of their fam­ily trip around Aus­tralia [“Mak­ing Mem­o­ries”, Au­gust 1 edi­tion]. I hadn’t seen their story be­fore and it’s made me think hard about pri­or­i­ties for my own fam­ily. &

Thumbs Up to car­pet and vinyl lay­ers who leave some spare of­f­cuts for pos­si­ble fu­ture re­pairs. It’s a great help with tight house­hold bud­gets. A re­pair can be made in­stead of re­plac­ing good car­pet and vinyl.

Thumbs Down

to the Ser­vice NSW Cen­tre for dou­ble dip­ping on a cus­tomer’s ac­count via their eft­pos ma­chine re­cently. The cus­tomer then had to jump through hoops to get it back. Not good enough!

'

Thumbs Down to the changes to abortion laws that were ap­proved by State Par­lia­ment last week. I feel be­trayed that this was never men­tioned be­fore the elec­tion, it was rushed through par­lia­ment in what seems to be a con­tro­ver­sial way, and so we as the gen­eral pub­lic never got a proper say.

Thumbs Up

to Travis on the door at JB Hifi on Satur­day. On my way out, I couldn’t find the DVD I was af­ter, so Travis took the time to ask a col­league to have a search for me and found the elu­sive DVD. Who said cus­tomer ser­vice is dead?

&

Thumbs Up to your pho­tog­ra­pher for that epic photo of the two play­ers go­ing head to head in last week’s Sports sec­tion of Dubbo Photo News.
