YOUR LIFE,be in it,and if you see something DO SOMETHING about IT ?10 August at 19:08 from atlas
DO YOU REMEMBER BACK IN THE MID 1970's "THE LIFE BE IN IT" CAMPAIGN,that was the Brainchild of the VICTORIA GOVERNMENT,and expanded by the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
IT WAS PROMOTED OVERSEAS ,SUCCESSFULLY FOR 10 YEARS,and the character,NORM,was created by PHILLIP ADAM and ALEX STITT.[google WIKIPEDIA,LIFE BE IN IT ]for more detail and references.
But,this story is about a friend of mine called NORMIE,and a character of similar appearence to his names sake;we would speak often about various issues and I suppose we both mentored each other on life issues.
One day NORMIE told me openly of a situation where we both considered was very dangerous for the intended uses;and cutting to the chase i immediately said what have you done about it ,NORMIE.
Well he was'nt so I did ,yes I contacted Worksafe and the appropriate PEAK BODY,to notify them of the impending danger;Isent a copy of each letter,with my name and contact details on them,and I then forwarded copies to my FRIEND NORMIE.
Well you would not believe the verbal tirade I recieved from NORMIE,which even if I had the space I would not give him the space for his demeaning insults.
I could not believe the abuse I recieved for helping him out of an embarressing situation;BUT as Titled thats life,and LIFE IS WHAT I AM ABOUT ?
But of equal disbilief was WORKSAFES response to this DANGEROUSNESS,if this is not a WORKPLACE with PAID STAFF,we are not interest.
So here is 2 example of people taking part in life,yes,BLOW YOU JACK I AM ALL RIGHT,because that my way of DOING MY THING,and stuff everyone else.
THE MORAL OF THIS TRUE STORY of WHAT MOST PEOPLE THINK,and DO,is sit on their ARSES in the true AUSSIE WAY and can't get out of their own way,nor can they see past their own stomachs;or perhaps better said THEY DON'T HAVE THE GUTS !
26TH SEPTEMBER 2013
Now to the more ever present attitudes in the greater populous ;and it is now that I ask a very valid question ,why can't those who are meant to serve us and represent us be responsible and do just that .
Our Local Councils are these such people ;just ask any ratepayer or citizen their opinions of LOCAL GOVERNMENT and their responses are certainly not about love .
These public servants are loathed and hated !
On the 25TH SEPTEMBER 2013 ,I contacted 2 of my 9 local councillors of Manningham City Council ,that's more than 16% an excellent number to draw a comparision from;the question and complaints to them were about the poor workmanship in construction and maintenance of our infrastructure .
Whether you live in any Local Government area in Victoria ,79 of them the issues are all the same but more importantly THE SAME ATTITUDES and RESPONSES are the SAME;however in qualifying this statement RURAL LOCAL GOVERNMENTS could be excused because they have an excuse due to their limited resources.
