Hassle? But you're not speaking to the people answerable to you. I mean this politely and helpfully, but I oso want to maybe give some kind of jolt ah. - Are you totally clueless!? Are you afraid of speaking to them!? Call the car dealer and ask him what is happening with your car ah? Simple. Until...

Selling your car

Can anyone share with me their experiences when selling their car? I was told by the dealer that bought mine, that they would settle my loan balance and pay me the differential by cheque...and that it was usual practise.

dehumidifiers you need to empty out the water regularly - we`re away for 3 weeks so its not going to be much help.

Thirsty Hippos are a good idea - but again not sure about longevity.

I would also suggest getting a reality check. As you mentioned at the start of the post and in the title - its a JUNIOR role. And I`m surprised any firm is willing to re-locate junior staff when its probably a lot easier and cost efficient to hire locally - unless of course you have a specialised sk...

Heading away again - this time for one month in Dec! so scared shitless on what I will be coming home to - especially given its ...
