Fish and Christmas Theft

luther_bendross 30 December 2008 25

A few weeks ago now I was shopping at Belco markets, purchasing some barramundi for dinner. We got a fair bit, ~$40 worth. I then watched the assistant wrap, package and bag our fish, and reached into my wallet. As I did so, the customer before me managed to pull a swifty and take my bag, leaving me with $6 of mackeral. A mate and I gave chase, however he disappeared into the throngs very quickly. My advice to all is to watch your purchases at the fish markets as you really don’t get your hands on it until you’ve paid. The upside, though, was that an employee saw what happened and subsequently gave us a new cut of barra with some extra thrown in for good measure. And yes, it was tres tasty.

Secondly, to the lowlife scumbag who broke into our house on Christmas Eve: you could’ve at least taken our TV you moron, I needed a replacement. I hope you were attacked by wasps, you germ.

Well if he left the keys in it of course the immobiliser won’t work!

I don’t recall saying he’d left the keys in the car – so I’m not sure where you got that brilliance from. For the record, no he didn’t leave the keys in the car!

ooh, patently not enough sleep post revelry – ‘*’ should appear after ‘… resurrect threads, then?’, not after ‘comment’… obviously floundering this morning.

Sheesh, Astrojax, haven’t you anything better to do than bait us with those cod-awful puns?

holy mackerel, that, from ‘crabb’! 😉

and ant, trouble with old threads is they don’t re-appear when we add a comment*, sea – i know it’s a long line, but how do we resurrect threads, then? this should net a few comments, trawling for answers like this… i know ant’s got a few tentacles out, suckers! let’s hope she don’t clam up, or try to mussel in on the gags unwontedly. i now you all think i’m just coming the raw prawn, but… stops now.

[* actually a real question – would be a useful site addition to have a) threads re-emerge,or a ‘talked about’ segment where they pop up to continue discussions, and/or b) an archive that doesn’t have the whole first page devoted to threads already available live on the board…]

Tylersmayhem sorry about the theft but a Camry? If you’re going to steal a car at least make it something interesting.

My father-in-law had his car stolen from out the front of my sis-in-laws place during the night on Christmas eve. F**king low life’s. Yes the car was insured, but he is one of those dudes who carries the majority of his clothes, CD collectors editions and DVD with him.

So much for “Engine Immobilisers” in the new Camrys hey?!

Well if he left the keys in it of course the immobiliser won’t work!

Keep an eye out for the next outbreak of puns or other awful jokes, and then follow the miscreants as they are sent to THAT thread.

Don’t you wish you could catch the slimebags in the act. Their christmas would be spent unconscious in a pool of their own blood.

Yeah they’d deserve to get caught. But over some fish? You could get charged for battery! Or at least get a proper grilling.

And to the punners above, there’s a thread waiting for you, you know the one…

Sheez that’s tough. I’m also quite perplexed as to exactly why someone would steal fish?

I think, for the types of filth who steal, it’s more about just thieving anything.

Yup! Couldn’t agree more. Seeing as the justice system continues to be a branch of social services, whose purpose is to mollycoddle the scum of society, it’s about time for natural justice to have a chance at sorting things out.

what about the scales of justice, though?

or are you suggesting plod would pike? the poor lads are so overworked, they flounder this time of year and are cast too many red herrings to take everything seriously…

Yep. It’s not like the cops/courts will do anything anyway.

Sure, it’s considered somewhat of a luxury in comparison to mince and chicken but what the heck! Hope your NYE will make up for it.

my better half’s brother had his place broken into xmas eve morning – little scrotes tore open every present under the tree and scarpered with handful of dvd’s and cd’s.

as for the barra, i hope they choked on the bones. very nice, though, of the markets to refill your order – there is a christmas spirit! 😉
