I would heartily agree with you. Irish 'service' is particularly notable for this.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! That lady at the airport who has always been so helpful over the years and quite apart from loving her job has a number of awards for her good service. She will probably have you boiled in oil. :P :lol:

Try reading the thread again renault. Sms's point is; about the only ways you can deal with such people is by forming an organization of some sort. Besides you yourself wrote; 'It always good to have volunteer willing to stand out to represent. Nevertheless, your residents should not be feeling helpless as thinking you can do almost anything. There are town council which they can easily access to'...

Rather self-contradictory don't you think?.... :roll:

There are organisation such as CDC and town council whereby you can even find volunteers engaging their respective expertise in helping needy resident for various issue. Further, application is always open for volunteers.


SMS earlier point was:Better yet, tell her the next time she comes screaming like a harridan, you will take one of the galah poles and shove it somewhere she's not likely to forget! And yes you should feel self contradictory.
