gnaaaahahahah >:

So I got my insurance changed over, yes? (And wasn't that fun. Not.) Well. Got ANOTHER call from the clinic yesterday. Namely from my gastroenterologist's office.

The clinic may be taking the new insurance, but half the departments there are not.

I now have no gastroenterologist and we don't yet know how many other specialists I'm set to lose.

We also don't yet know if the doctor I see for my eye bleeds, which could very easily lead to me going blind if they go untreated, will be taking this insurance.

Can I have a Tantalus Ray or five? I'd rather like to blow up the world and start over.

Tough luck mate, I went to see my eye surgeon yesterday in a private hospital and I did not have to pay a cent!, I can't imagine how you feel right now, it sucks the American Health Care v Australian Health Care, The Australian Version is undoubtedly much better than in the States

Vodaphone you are no help, terrible reception and even when I wanted a new number so that my late father could leave me alone, how do you respond? Tell me to call the bloody customer service line when most of the time you have people who understand very little English, I refused to do this despite their claim they have reopened their Australian Call Center, Yeah Right I don't dig that!, Eventually I ended up lying to dad whom which I have no regrets just to get him to leave me alone, he kept contacting me for a while but thankfully he did give up and he never texted me again, I did end up making two landline calls to him on his death bed by this time he never asked for my number again, About Bloody Time!

It definitely wasn't one where we got along, I could go on a long rant about it but that would take all day!

That's a relief! Now you only need to be irate, not eyerate as well.

Those who deliberately lie to a Transport Worker without having a valid ticket in order to get free travel should not be allowed on, full stop!
Yesterday was on bus from Waurn Ponds back to Norlane and at the station, two young women claim they didn't have a myki so therefore were allowed on, pathetic! it is honest commuters like me that pay for those who fare evade meaning that people who do the right thing end up paying more and more every year!, if Public Transport VIC had a zero tolerance policy that would be the only way to have commuters behavior to change!

And so today I spent A$30 on back manipulation treatment, mum been seeing this guy for years and I have since started going to his practice.
in my opinion, expensive but money spent well worth it, it'll cost me more if I had private insurance whom which I don't!

After 3 months of waiting, I finally received one of these in my change today

Image

It is funny really because I got one of these not long after they were released into circulation in 2016

Image

this is why the rba says that the new banknotes may take time to enter circulation as the plan is to retire the older notes to be replaced with the new series

the next note to be replaced if I understand correctly is not the A$20 but the A$50, the fate of the A$100?, no Aussie knows!
