We dealt with it in our Irish disputes resolution manner: a bellowing scrap. Building from a disagreement about the sorting sequence into a roaring swearing hurling: “I’ve always fucking hated this” Biff. “Why the fuck is this still here?” Hurl. Three years of behaving well broke, and we had a good clean war for three or four hours, taking out all our anger and frustration about the way life has really been hard, the grief, the everything about living in this buggered city.
That is fantastic that you let loose. To be honest and to not try to piss others off, I'm amazed we never hear of this sort of "Irish disputes" behaviour on here, Everyone seems so strong. I would have been there oh so 3.5 years ago.
I've had a stink start to my year with death and op and building and selling which is nothing like the Chch debacle but the raw nerves are all twisted and knotted and at least I know the building is nearly finished and that Mum's in a place she would consider better. I will be fixed and our house down here will sell. I really don't think I could have made it down there. It's the "going back for more " be it Govt ignoring you all, the Council avoiding you all, The weather curtailing you all, and the sadness that the land has a long way to go to settle if it ever will. I would go bananas and your stoicism/ fortitude (?) amazes me.
Purging is good eh? makes you definitely feel lighter and brighter.
another wave of people is leaving now:
That makes complete sense though. It's almost like the water is washing everthing away.Powerful stuff is water.
Hope you have a great day today Hebe. You are strong.
The rest of NZ should be concerned: this is a precedent-setting situation that will be applied to every homeowner’s land insurance. It effectively renders land insurance near non-existent and building insurance full of get-outs.Banks will now start to lobby I would imagine: people will walk away from their properties. Resolving this must be a primary election issue. Fuck resilience.
In investigating our own insurance, It is certainly not worth considering insurance any more any time soon. Just as the Govt and Council up here dealt with Aucklands leaky buildings. Permits mean nothing. Houses devalued The get outs are phenomenal.
Keep up the good investigative work guys. Keep bringing it out in the open. Force change. I know that years ago Papanui had sinking parts and only due to perseverence was a relatives home raised . That would have been at least 200mil and they had installed one of those concrete stormwater drains right beside it.
Chchch is still the homebake capital then!:- )
Still, had morphine for the last few days up here. Live and well in our Hospitals up this way.Trouble is pathetic paracetamol when you exit. What's that about eh? ;)
It’s scary to think just how many square meters of land must be dedicated to my coffee habit, somewhere out there.
Ha! And how few is needed for my pain relief in hospital this week with so many names I don't know which ones I had :)
It’s been heartening to see so many non-Chch people so angry after watching that Campbell Live piece. It would be even nicer if it meant something changed.
I noticed in that clip that the British guy said the evidence was out there that John Campbell couldn't verify. John also quickly responded that they would talk. Hope that reveals more tonight.
who then has liability for the repairs that have already been done being up to standard?
In front of the TV cameras and photographers, he pitched in to help with a mop in the chemist.
Smile and wave, smile and wave..... .
What's a zinger?
“The tools are broken!” just means one hasn’t learned to use them.
So what I get from people’s perspective on here is the Twitter has many interpretations, uses, problems, and can be almost addictive. Plus, as a tool in relative infancy, the problems are now coming to light that users feel warrants some sort of control. With such widespread contact with people, perhaps it needs personal scrutiny that helps those who have problems with others on it. Maybe some sort of plan could be devised amongst yourselves to encourage others to join in and start by tweeting to others the rules in the plan. Pyramid like, because that is how I visualise it.
I also note to myself ,it really isn’t my cuppa. I like that you all want to stay connected though. put you at the forefront of whats happening next. My limited time at the mo ( probably pleases many :) meant I only just got to read David’s fine piece of writing. I like that it’s the first thing I’ve read about CD (although I have read here) and will probably be the last but it was a worthwhile read. He obviously knew her well and wrote of her warmly and honestly. That’s the sort of thing I can read about suicide. Someone who knows them can share their love for a person, purely.
Oh shit, sorry kracklite, didn't mean to fuk up.
