    No wonder people don't understand the legislation.

    Plain English to me BUT amazing how many have to go straight for the right lane ....... am passed/overtaken by more P Plate drivers than those not displaying P Plates ie full licensed drivers as they seem to think that 10kph or more over the limit is the speed they can travel at.

    Then you get those that stop dead in the merge lane when entering a freeway/highway etc ..... trying to work out if they can go.

    NSW has a problem that people think that you can only do 80kmh while merging. Maybe if the RMS halfwits moved the 110 signs back further........

    Oh yeah agree with that ...... some drivers "should have gone to SpecSavers" as they evidently can't read BIG RED NUMBERS :eek:

    Interesting how many motorists know the rules on merging on to a motor way.

    Just casually checking emails before shutting down for the night, to find 4 x EBay purchases I didn’t make today, and matching PayPal emails for scheduled payments......

    10 x Titanium drill bits from China, which wouldn’t be worth $10, but charged at $149........ x 4 times! :eek:

    So had to notify PayPal, that I didn’t authorize almost $600 of purchases to the SAME seller in China (now “no longer a registered EBay user”), and change my password. :(


    Anyone else had a similar fraud experience in the past, and are PayPal efficient with scams like this? o_O

    Nope Grant never an experience like that ...... only time I've had a paypal refund is on a canelled purchase (came through within 24 hrs) as seller didn't communicate and I had to chase for shipment = cancelled the purchase ..... was for a Torque Wrench 1/2"drive in ft/lbs which I found a name brand for same price @ Supercheap Auto so bought from them.

    Had an email from EBay, requesting me to change my EBay password, as they have detected fraudelent activity......

    So went direct to EBay, (not click on a link in that email..;)), and have done so.

    Hopefully all sorted with EBay & PayPal.

    Australia Post.

    I am sure there are millions of horror stories about this poor excuse for a service provider - I know I have complained before about parcels being delivered to the wrong address - but this one takes the cake.

    I bought 2 items for my mum and myself that we wanted for Christmas from eBay. They were from a seller in Victoria so I was getting them delivered to my mum at Maitland and I would get mine on Christmas Day. I purchased on 11/12 -tracking started in Victoria on 12/12, it then went to Chullora in NSW and on Friday 15/12 it was at Metford (near Maitland). For some reason it is then tracked to Chullora on Saturday 16/12 and then on Monday 18/12 it is Victoria again. It is then scanned 3 times within half an hour on Wednesday 20/12 at Chullora and that is that - no presents for Christmas.

    Even if my mum was not home on the Friday (which she was) and they could not deliver it, what happened to leaving a card and it waiting at the post office for collection?

    I've got a workshop in Berkeley Vale
    Every other parcel goes to Berkeley near Wollongong
    Then back to Chullora
    Then back to Berkeley
    Then back to Cullora Obviously they have ground hogs at the distribution centre
    Then I ring them and tell them to look at the f*%$#n post code on the parcel.
    When the conversation is over I get asked to complete a telephone survey
    Apart from asking auspost to teach their employees to read you can imagine the other comments that can't be repeated here.
    The only thing that saves the day is that my street doesn't exist in Berkeley or they would argue that my stuff was in fact delivered.
    On a different note the postie who eventually delivers my parcel is a top bloke
