What do we think about frangipanis?

By Delish 16 January 2009 68

The new plague on Canberra Streets – Frangipani Girls…

What is it with the girls that have Frangipani’s on their cars?

Why are they so psycho on the road teamed up with the bad driving?

Has anyone else came across these new ‘Canberra’ drivers???

Please share your pain with me to ease mine!

[ED – And are they that new? When did you become aware of the phenomenon?]

What’s Your opinion?

$5000 by the number of kids? we get… wait for it, 125 per fortnight, sorry per month from the govt for Tax A & B,

Oh right – so you didn’t get a grand per little one lik the Gov. promised (or did I miss something – it’s quite possible)?

of course i did. it will be gone in no time, on my mortgage payments.

calculated my monthly costs out last night, for just nappies and formula alone….

8x tins of formula, @$22 per tin: $176.00.
4 boxes of nappies @$34 per box (on special)$136.00.
total: $312 per month.

minus $125/month for govt payment, not very much, and soon to end as i will be working 3 jobs, scored an early morning job, 6-8.30, and we will be on top at last, and able to start saving for a bigger house.

150k per year? hardly.

Speaking of bogan nationalism and Eureka motifs, this weekend down teh coast I saw umpteen cars going around with Aussie flags stuck on them. Soem had one, and some had two, on some kind of mounting device on the front door roof guttters. What’s that all about?

current baby bonus is $5000 per kid. Tehy did means test it now… all the strugglers on $150,000 per year and below qualify. I’d sure like to be struggling on $150k. What gets me is that the taxes paid by people who’ll never earn that much are being handed to people who have more money than those doing the paying. That’s just wrong.

Recent changes to the baby bonus have meant that it is paid in installments rather than a lump sum. A decent step but not as good as abolishing probably the most ridiculous spending program the Howard Government initiated (and boy were there some doozies).

I haven’t looked at the scheme in a while so I’m not sure if it works out to be $125 a fortnight, and for how long they space it out.

If things are so bad the midwife needs to do 30 over the limit, maybe they should send an ambulance instead.

What? Hell, no! Two things that suck … 1) being moved while in labour 2) having strangers turn up.

Sometimes it’s necessary, but if the midwife can get there in the same time, just move out of the way and leave her alone. Likewise, if somebody is driving the woman in labour to hospital, or someone is driving their kid to the accident and emergency department.

I thought ambulances kept to the speed limit, they get there faster because other traffic gives way to them especially at intersections.
