So the water bill saga continues.... Even after Adjustments my bills are still left at double what they normally would be for TWO not one TWO quaterly bills because of the incompetence of fucking hocking stuart.

Their response to my asking for compensation for the bills "Take Yarra valley water to the Energy and water ombudsman"

WHAT THE FUCK FOR?!?! Their Terms and conditions of a leak allowace clearly state how much they are willing to adjust and a repair considered Urgent as outlined in the booklet published by consumer affairs should not take 3 FUCKING MONTHS TO FIX!

Hell according to the booklet a non-urgent repair should take no more than 14days.... Wish I'd read this booklet earlier :( Woulda taken my agent to VCAT months ago.... then wouldn't be dealing with 2 sky high water bills.

The fridge is angry, the cheese told me so.

the point at which stress relief type activities become stressful is probably a good time to stop doing such activities >.<

fucking myki. grrr. got desperate not living near anywhere that sells metcards, so put $10 on my card (then realised that there was already $15 sitting there waiting to be credited to the card as well). Haven't be able to use it, refund claims looks overly complicated with a $10 service fee attached, so there goes my $25. SCAM!

usually takes about 3 days for funds to clear to the card if you top up manually.

if you add an auto top up from cc when it gets below a certain threashold it takes about 2 seconds to clear to the card.

you too YI

migraines suck, i never used to get them, but a few years back all of a sudden i started getting them. Came out of nowhere as i hadn't had them before. Got a brain scan and everything cos they couldn't work out what was wrong. In the end they worked out they were this certain type of migraine, forget the name. Anyways, had to go to hospital and get injections in my stomach and take epileptic medication for a year to get rid of them. fun times....not. Hope it is just sinusitis!
