Fish and Christmas Theft

By 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.

What’s Your opinion?

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!
