My eldest son 15yo has Asperges and was bullied by 2 boys, when he went into a cubicle in the toilets they would bang on the door and torment him. 
He told us about it and my wife talked to the school and let them know what was going on. 
There solution was to allow him to use different toilets away from the other kids. 
How the f$%k is that resolved? 
He is fortunate that there is a boy he went to primary school with that is well liked, who looks out for him.

I think someone else said it well when they were talking to the cops and when they took problem kids home to the parents, the parents were kids themselves, and stoned off their tits and didn't care what the kids did, and abused the cops.
Happens everyday, unfortunately you need a licence to drive but anyone can have a kid. Police are mandatory reporters to community services, but they can't keep up with the workload

First world problem rant.
Just got a shiny new computer for work to replace the coal fired slug I've endured for 3yrs.
They have swapped the left hand CTRL and Fn keys around!  Opposite to every other computer I've used for years.
 The CTRL is always the outside key........ What twisted minds could do this to mess with my head...……?

Sometimes there's an option in the BIOS to swap the keys, so Fn becomes CTRL and vice versa

I have both my laptops running UK keyboard layouts; however, only one of them has a UK keyboard, and the wireless or desk keyboards are all Australian ones... I still don't know where a couple of keys are... it does make it a bit more difficult when you can't get a \ when you need it...

Do sometimes get a typo here and there as the Enter key is a different shape on the UK keyboard (which is what I'm using now), but the trade off to having $, £ and € all easy to get at is worthwhile - but the top one is watching an Aussie enter an email address and getting " instead of @

Forget about a few years later...

I was talking to the Energex bloke doing my final metre reading -- and he reckons some of the Jokers get their metre read and cut off in the morning under one company name,   whilst they have the metre guy rebooked same day afternoon -- to reconnect the metre under a new company name ...

There was Gidget camper in town here a few months back. It looked nice enough, but it was just a retro look that screamed i'm not.

I googled it when I got home and near Shit my pants when I saw the prices....... waaaay too much for camper like that, in my opinion.

Most RETRO stuff these days is way overpriced for what they are and often, where they are made/built.

Be it as simple as a retro style shirt or retro camper.

Wife told me last night I could have a sleep in this morning, I was excited... 7:30am and I hear this drilling noise which woke me up. I initially thought it was my neighbour and was about to text him and say STFU... next minute wife walks in to tell me she just put together a new single seat lounge which who knows how much it cost me.

No sleep in for me
