What does your day look like?

I think I got a little sunburnt! I got out for a ride this afternoon with one of my friends that hasn't been on the dirt for a bit and had a blast. I was hell flat after the last few days of work and late finishes, so we mostly kicked it on the dirt lumps. Hit a few trails and fuck me there was some brake bumps where they shouldn't be.

So cool. I was there just recently too. There used to be an amazingly good value tea shop just around the corner from there but I think COVID killed it.
Sorry I just missed you. Anyhow, I would love t ohit this up if I could escape next time, but not in summer.
Would be a great coincidence if you where here at the same time and comfortable enough to release your inner suppressed roadie.

There was a huge tree that fell over on one of the trails here and a few of the boys turned into a log rollover. The run in was really steep and if you hit it fast enough you could boost the big section of the large log and land to flat on the other side of the trail. After a few weeks go by I notice some brake ruts forming where you land, and I'm thinking to myself who the fuck is doing this and why.

Anyway, a few days passed and I was going up the trail and an e-biker dude who's well known to me came flying down the trail, did a backwheel buck over the log because he doesn't lift the front, and then locked the rear brake up for a few meters to wash all the speed off.

The world has plenty of tools. One of the local trails covered in brake bumps today has a fast, but very manageable "chute" down to a sweet jump...well that run in has been torn to pieces from jerrys braking on the run in.

Merry fucking Xmas to you assholes

I hope you politely asked them if you were going to see them at the next dig day.

Not even the great sense of relief when you leave it?
Hey, they slug you for that too. The 'private' train staton change to stop at the airport is a rort.

It is still cheaper for me to get a taxi or uber to the airport once the 'station access fee' is included.
They royally messed up what most other countries with train line access seem to get right with ease.

One good thing about Aus is that most of the $ amounts for extortion and bribes are predetermined, and listed as a "Table of fees"
(rather than having to guess each time what the bribe/ransom needs to be... Looking at you Customs...)

You know those days that go to shit the moment you start work? Well...

- staff member suffering manic episode, unable to follow instructions.
- 60% serious first aid incident, first aid required, staff member in tears and laying on floor, refuses to go to hospital, tries to work shift ("nah I'm ok..."), taken home by another team member early with a face full of tears and unable to stand up, still refusing to go to hospital.
- intoxicated member of public passing by...first aider decides to bring them into the venue to recover which instantly makes it my problem. Mate I'm sorry, but this is a licensed premises and you are showing signs of intoxication...so you have to leave. Can I call you an ambulance or taxi or friend? Suddenly I have an angry patron rather than some guy who would have stumbled on by without being an issue...lucky I'm an ugly fucker so he calms down and sees himself out telling me he is ok and has some friends coming. He gets in a taxi shortly after. Thought I was going to have to get tough there for a minute! The guy was at 80% rage but also couldn't stand up on his own. What's with people? I have made it pretty clear enough times that if there is a critical incident and I am turfing someone out or serving up some first aid everyone else (except the 1 person I handpick as a witness) needs to fuck off and mind their own business, but ... I always end up spending more time telling busy body staff to back up and shut up.
- I'm trying to write up my report and suddenly everyone else decides they need urgent assistance.
- inexperienced staff member refuses service to a customer they decide is intoxicated because "I've already served you 6 drinks tonight..." I miss the conversation but am close enough to figure out what has happened...the customer is a regular and one of the nicest and most genuine people to walk through our doors. They even send my team a Christmas card each year! And for fuck's sake kiddo!!! Their speech is not slurred because they are intoxicated, they have a disability. Next time ask me or a very short list of other people before making such a call and even more importantly...you have to tell the rest of the team you have cut someone off! I was mucho pissed.
- new staff rostered on with no training and nobody thought to tell me.
- "we've done everything, can we go home early..?" No. Look at this long list of shit you haven't done. What about now? How about just doing what I have asked you to do?
- oh would you look at that, half the list is waiting for me after they have gone home.
- a few hundred surfing dudes as patrons. Surfers are so fucking annoying as a sub culture.
- show producers that have a very different idea about things to what my coordinator has told me...think I will run with the show producers.
- why can't people count money? The stupidity of cashiers is a solid argument for a cashless society. It is grade 1 maths you fuckers!
- locked myself out of the office.

To top it all off I purchased myself a post shift negroni to chill. I go to the special glasses cabinet and some cunt has thrown all the funky cocktail glasses out. Absolute kick in the dick! There was some genuine vintage items in the collection and a few high end bits of crystal etc...im a weeeeeeee bit pissed! The cabinet is now just and empty cabinet with some fucking napkins in it. Rather than throw the glass out, plenty of staff would have taken them home (not just me!) . Anyway I do the negroni in a stemless wine glass and drink it in the rave cave (coolroom) sulking and blasting old trance music. Tomorrow should be a better day. I am going to buy some condensed milk and make a batch of Vietnamese coffee...it will be a long night.

That is true. Not like they didn't tell you before the wallet lightening.
