    Yep I absolutely look into it.

    Telstra - for sending jobs over seas when we need them here too, and for the stupid automated recordings to get to talk to someone. Optus is fast becoming just the same so they could be next in line.

    2 of the 4 Maccas we have in this town because their service is horrible. We got sick of our orders being wrong EVERY time, once my husbands burger was missing the burger part. Another is almost one the out too, maybe that's a good thing though :-)

    A local restaurant because we went there with family for breakfast one time and 2 people didn't get their order. They weren't busy and when told about it they said they were being cooked right then 15 minutes later still nothing and no one came to say anything. When told again that they still hadn't gotten their order which was just eggs and toast nothing special they went to check again 10 minutes later still nothing so we asked for the money back and told them to forget it because everyone else had finished they didn't want it now they weren't going to give the money back. Very poor service.

    Subway - ordered a vegie delight thinking I was gonna get a vegie pattie or something and only asked for lettuce and cucumber, the roll got wrapped and I was not delighted. I was in shock that that was it.
    Just re subway... Veggie delight has always just been your choice of salads... It's displayed on the menu boards. Bit rough to boycott them because you didn't read the menu!!

    Mr Minit shoe repairs. I need new heels every 2 months on shoes I only walk on a few times a week. There used to be a good private shoe repair shop here, but they closed as Mr Minit's competitive actions sent them broke. They did a great job with my shoes. Heels lasted 6 months. Anything less and they would fix them for free.

    Re: subway I will go to certain ones and not others. Some are generous with the salads and some are stingy. If you are paying that much for a sandwich they can afford a couple more slices of tomato.

    the website is www.aussiekids.net.au

    Most of the articles are fine, but a couple I found quite offensive.

    These lot kept sending me their mags to put in the library. They were already there when I started the job and i cancelled them when i read one and saw it was produced my McDonalds. They were quite aggressive about me cancelling and kept wanting to know why, emailing me and calling me all the time. Wanted to speak to my manager, etc. And they kept sending them! I called back and said 'you can keep sending them all you like and i will keep putting them straight in the recycling' LOL. They stopped sending them after that.

    I don't buy from any label who sell fur. I won't listen to beyonce or Jlo because both of their fashion labels used fur, and they would not change no matter how much people pleaded with them. They know how bad the industry is but decided that a fashion statement is more important than humanity. Famous people who wear fur also boycotted.

    I don't buy L'oreal - animal cruelty.

    I buy free range chicken, eggs and bacon.

    But I LOVE cotton on kids! Am I the only one????
