Re: Lifes little gripes II

Net issues at work today. Yahoo application we use to list on the auctions decided to stop working. It told you to sign in again but when you did it wouldnt load properly then asked the same thing again. Strange thing was I could list directly off my phone, just not when using wifi to do it.

Re: What's new?

Crazy isnt it. The reality is that the elderly are being asked to work and hired by companies to do so. My wife is working in geriactric care and she can literally quit her job tomorrow and get a new better job in days. Maybe even hours! No shit!

Another week in the bag. Ive got no plans for the weekend. Might be pulling a navigation out of a Hiace we bought for a customer in NZ. Apart from that nothing doing. Japan is fucking weird now.

Re: What was your family's main car when you were little?

I just sold my Legacy I bought two years ago. Macs talking about selling for almost the same price originally bought for reminded me! Got about 10000 yen less than I paid for it 2 years ago. Crazy shit! You never hear about someone almost breaking even on a used car. LOL

Re: Rugby Union

Bledisloe time again. Last night was a clobbering by the ABs. Beauden Barrett is disappointing with his shitty kicking. SURELY there is someone else that can step in with better goal kicking. 50 odd percent just isnt good enough at this level.

Well it is time for me to upgrade my car situation. I was hoping to do this next year or something but a really nice 2015 Subaru Levorg (new Legacy) came along and I cant resist! Got a 5 year unlimited KM warranty with it too. Check it out. http://sl.uploads.im/t/dmkJy.jpg http://sl.uploads.im/t/hjf...
