Where is the Whinger?

Has he self-immolated in a ball of rage? Fallen off the perch? Given up on the 9 ~ 5 rat-race and found a mountain to sit on & become a Guru Hermit?

Well not exactly.

The boring answer is I had Easter>extra leave, got pretty sick, so had sick leave & then the only day I actually went to work I was made redundant along with 40 of my colleagues (such is the nature of IT sector at times).

Ironically I bought a montly ticket on that day too & when I eventually went home for the 4.07pm, you guessed it, it wasn't at the platform & was late arriving. Hehe, I had to laugh.

So I've been enjoying sleeping in for the past few weeks, but will be back on the train irregularly & hopefully regularly as I start looking for a job in earnest this week.

Oh the horror...

Anyone see the Bracks transport release? Big dollars to be spent on country rail passenger rolling stock... after 2011 !!! Seriously.

Hey Jade, why don't YOU approach V-line customer service for a job. I'd love to hear you on the PA telling us "nyeh nyeh why don't YOU fix it"
Just amazing, you really think the unsatisfied customer should fix the problem?
