Hi Jane, I overheard you at the public bar with the friend of yours (2 friends) in wherever they liked and this guy That I knew his life and enough about HIS time slacking off at WORK that he wanted to give someone some pain. I guess I was wondering if you out there in La La Land actually didn't take risks would he have gone back to you or is it still going to be a risk for Humanity and the way I can rspt Dubbo for his comrades at arguing about what the other picture is? Obviously missing the point sent Old Mate get outta my road and tell your story walking ffft
Old Mate on Mar 17, 2022:
Hey Dubbo, i remember you, your right in some of your comments we are all mates, and mates of mates, that the Australian way, its sad to see you couldn't make friends with anyone (im sure you would enjoyed the privilege )its sad that in your opinion people in Adelaide aren't good enough for the job, incompetent and arrogant and that we left you speechless(You seem to have plenty to say here on this thread) i am really am confused as to why did you stay 25 year in the private sector ?
You are right about it doesn't matter if you are Labour OR Liberal ( 2017 Labor governed, 2018 Liberal governed, look like its Labors turn again in 2022 ) Liberal Labor OR Callithumpian We are ALL Australians here.
You found the way of doing business in S.A. substandard, am i to presume with your intelligence you were super successful here.
I do wish you had tied harder to make some friends here, then you would have had the( its who you know factor covered ) ( and with your intelligence you have the what you know covered) (Backwards/Getting worse ARE YOU STILL HERE) Whitout Malice Old Mate (S.A.)
