Wow I am cranky today. A few weeks back new estate agents took over managing our house. Last week our former property managers (I won't name them, but let's just call them....say..... Callaghers in Annandale) debited $620 in rent (despite them not being the agents any more). After we brought the matter to their attention, they kindly informed us they could either (a) mail a cheque or (b) do a direct deposit at the end of the month. Obviously I am not waiting til the end of the month for my money, so we asked for a cheque. OK. Saturday, I decide to check my account online. Another $620 has been debited. This time I was not so kind in informing them. They are mailing another cheque, which is a laugh because I could actually heave a cricket ball from my house to their office, and I may do so. So I now have to spend a week with $1.32 in my account waiting for 2 bloody cheques to clear. Hello real estate agents, it aint the 19th century any more!!! Amazing isn't it, when rental payments are late they jump on you - but when you're no longer their client, and they have $1240 of your money, they are a little more relaxed about it? What does this have to do with bikes...? Um...not much really. Some of that money would be going to a new helmet. Feels good to rant and rave though.
