Too much bad press
After a near brush with having my visa cancelled, my graduation postponed… and dodging the endless issues settling into my new home – I am actually still alive.
Let us consider this winter.
What is up with the state of everything recently? (And I am being rhetorical here.)
Qantas had its THIRD unscheduled, unplanned landing. Sure, so they have never had a good job keeping to schedule (“We are having issues with the in-flight entertainment systems…”), but this is just pushing it a step too far.
Starbucks is massively downsizing (not that I actually care). Other major organisations are cutting jobs and shutting down factories.
Truckies went on strike (how rare is that?).
Alleged racist attack on an Asian in the CBD. By Asians. More unreported, but observed violence involving Asians in the inner city.
ANOTHER body found in the Yarra River.
Optus fouling up (and you only knew just when you really needed to make that call).
Unemployment goes up. Traffic bogs down. Services clogs out. Premier blames the migrants. (What, did you expect something else?)
So, seriously – is this simply the winter blues, or are we having a really bad one?
