For quite a while, I’ve been dealing with this overseas company. Let’s call them the ABC Nonghead Company. The Nongheads started out ok. They fulfilled their word and were efficient. Then it changed. They are now sloppy, ineffectual and basically hide behind a smoke and mirrors –‘how dare you question us policy’. Me? Dare? Well hell yeah. Maybe these Nongheads are used to dealing with non-Aussies who accept crap but being an Aussie means we grow up ready and willing to challenge authority and ask the hard questions of anyone regardless who they think they are. And when those in authority arc up at the temerity of a ‘pleb’ calling ‘em out well then that suggests to me that they have something to hide. If you didn’t then you’d just answer the question put to you now wouldn’t you? I’ve always said if you’re going to lie make it plausible for god sake.
