Tag Archives: Laugh My Box Off

On The Prowl

Standard

I had a MAJOR weekend. So difficult to describe really.
I will eventually try.

In the meanwhile I just have to share this song from the Aussie artist ellesquire, that I heard on the radio while I was getting chronically lost (as usual) in Perth traffic.

I just laughed so hard as I tried to figure out just where the hell I was and how I was going to get home!

Enjoy!

The Things You Learn While Opening Boxes

Standard

One of the most surprising aspects of my nighttime job filling shelves, is the things I see as I open and unload cartons and boxes of supermarket fodder. Every now and then I learn something and then sometimes I see a thing that makes me laugh out aloud.

Guffaw even!

 .

Only two or three people in the life-cycle of this carton, will see this message.

I mean how would  you react if you open a box and saw this for the first time?
Wouldn’t you have a chuckle as well?!?

Someone with a sense of humour designed this carton!

One night I came across this ‘imaginative’ spelling. What’s weird about this sight, is that there is VERY little opportunity for someone to write on a carton once it leaves the central supermarket warehouse.

Where this blue script originated from, is anyone’s guess.

Pretty sure "Baroken" isn't a word!

Then every now and then you come across an empty container that should in fact be full of (usually) food. Tins of soup, boxes of biscuits, bags of rice. There’s a sneaky stowaway from time to time.

Sealed and ready to sell - except it's completely empty!

But the biggest surprise I have received during my nightly chores, was the image of the identified rice quarantine area within New South Wales, Australia.

Say what???

Many packaging types have the Quarantine label

Have you even heard of this?

I never expected an education while doing Nightfill.

So despite the dreary and repetitive nature of the job, I am grateful that I am given glimpses of humour and quirky surprises throughout each week. I know that it means that cutting open box may hold my next ‘wow’ moment.

This set of images, is a perfect representation of how I felt at the end of last week and then over the weekend.

Are you feeling as shitty as I am about Rosie Batty‘s award as Australian of the Year (2015)?

Why am I shitty?

Here’s one reason.

Here’s another reason . . . .

. . . .  the Abbott/Liberal/Conservative Government has seen fit to withdraw – yes, take away what is already there – $271 MILLION of funding to community support agencies, such as groups that offer support to women, children and men who suffer from Domestic Violence.

Fuck !!!!!!!

If you are one of the many millions of people who voted for the Abbott Government in the last election – then I suggest you contact your elected member – the one YOU voted in – get them to reverse this decision.

Why?

Because it’s effect will be felt for the next TWENTY FIVE Years.

Don’t believe me?
Well stay tuned as I am collating some data to prove my point.
Don’t sit on your laurels now, mouthing “I can’t do anything”.
Fuck that – contact your Liberal Rep and tell them you don’t accept this travesty of Social Justice.

Think it won’t affect you?

Wrong again!
Want proof?
It’s coming – I am going to give you examples in the coming day/weeks.

This is a BIG deal peeps.
A VERY big, BAD deal.

Just One More Reason To Become A Hermit

Standard

Not even watching this video,
could cheer me up today.

I received the following email this morning.
No wonder I want to live online and not in the real world.

.

No!

.

Just feeling sorry for myself?

Maybe.
But I’m tired of trying and failing so much in life.

My “Pollyana” isn’t just fading, I think she’s dying.
