Not sure if this one should be in the daily rant thread or what made me smile as it did both

The bloody dog has figured out if he places the ball in front of the mower while i am working i have to stop and kick it out of the way that then starts the game all over again. Little bugger has added 45 minutes to my mowing time

What’s a mower, and what’s it used for?

The guy that bought the Austin makes me smile.

Really nice guy, paid all the money into our account last Saturday.
Hasn't worked out yet, when he will pick it up.
Rang today to confirm it was on restricted/tight arse rego.

NO, its on full rego....  ;D

Bonus, i'll ring Shannons back and tell 'em.

Any idea when you want to pick it up?

Arrrr,not sure, can I call you.

Yeah, that's fine.... I washed it this morning and filled the fuel for you.

Unreal dude... i'll ring you soon.

So no idea when ya want it?

Nah, but soon..i think.

Oh, that's ok, not taking up much space.... just call me... all is good.

Barry was going to be here today at 1pm to grab the Austin.
About an hour ago....

"Can you keep it until, maybe Tuesday or Wednesday, i'll grab it then."

He was so laid back when he first saw the car, never seen anyone like it.

Hopefully one day soon, he will get to drive it.

That's just it, he has told her....  ???

She was going to come out with him yesterday.

No skin off my nose, I've been paid and its his rego that's dwindling.
If I need to get the Fleetwood out, I just have to move the Austin, which is no big deal.

Man, if he was any more chilled out, he'd be in a coma.
