So you’re feeding $30k worth of 400mm2 cable through a pit to where the crusher is going to be planted on Tuesday…

Photograph World Sky Red Snapshot


Helmet Wood Orange Headgear High-visibility clothing


And then you REPEATEDLY specify to cut it 3 metres above GROUND LEVEL and very specifically NOT from the bottom of the pit.

So the f$&@dumb $&@)s cut all of them 3 metres from base of pit.

I am about to flip out.

Frantically waiting for engineer to email a GA of the MCC so I can work out if cables will reach.

Option A; pull it all out and start again but need to buy another $50k minimum of cable for other runs

Option B; may be able to cut legs shorter on MCC lol

Once crusher is there I can’t pull any more cables as winch won’t fit around the back so that’s it unless I get the 988 loader to skull drag it up the back of the ROM pad.

geez I am stressed.

Tenant asks mum to use my mini q barbecue. There have been some interesting pyrotechnics.
He’s got it alight and is using spray oil on it. 😖 NFI

You can join them fookers a pita but can be done if you have enough cable, crimper and links etc. Biggest I have done is 630mm two per phase and 500mm three per phase. Years ago ago we were dragging in some 11kv hv cable to an RMU. Some how it got a kink in it. Luckily the client was happy for a hv joint at our cost.

Put this down to experience. You have now gained a ****e load. And if your balls are on the line trust no one.

On the news last night they were saying how the price of fruit and veg is going to go through the roof because of the shortage of backpackers (covid) ..Why not send a few useless Aussie dole bludgers to do it?? What happened to work for the doll.?

Why should the farmers have to put up with them?

I’m really pi$$ed off, I made a small bench seat for the smokers at the local school, saved them sitting in the gutter to have their durries, then I added a couple of small butt bins on either end. Weeeeell, everything was there when I came back from lunch. After school and parents picked up their crotch goblins, both butt bins have been stolen. Next lot will be fastened in with tec screws. I bring in the seat on fridays and put it back out on Monday morning. Fcn low life. 🤬🤬🤬🤬🤬

Before the butt bins.

I've long wondered what combination of events in someone's life would lead to the conclusion that stealing an ash tray is anything but a bad idea.
It seems to be a thing, but I just can't figure out why.

What's the end goal? A minor inconvenience? Bragging about owning a $1.50 plastic cup with a hole in the lid? Trying to find a wet, half smoked, ash covered dart because you're that desperate?

Had one pinched from my ex girlfriend's front porch once, and the worst part of it was just trying to figure out why...
If you're gonna go to the effort of stealing something, wouldn't you want to make it worthwhile?

I think they take the butts and are then able to put whatever tobacco is left in a roll your own cigarette and smoke it.

Oh yes, can see it, some dodgy parent telling their little scrote to go and grab them. That way, if caught, they can then blame their spawn.
There are low life every where, you can see them sitting at home gloating over their ill gotten gains. Last of the big time crims. 🙄

Chop chop is cheap enough to where its 100% better than ash tray diving to get a few little half burned flakes of tobacco lol.

I think they take the butts and are then able to put whatever tobacco is left in a roll your own cigarette and smoke it.
Seems to me you'd be better off stealing something valuable, selling it, then using the money to buy smokes.
Or y'know, getting a job.

The proportion of effort vs the benefit is pretty damn terrible.
Perhaps the sort of people that steal ash trays don't think that way.

Even if its teenagers... chop chop. You're not gonna get ID checked getting chop chop.
