I worked from home on Friday. It;s a privilege to be able to do that if you need to. The Australian arm of where i was working has an issue with it, and my immediate “boss” that was from the USA said work from home whenever you want as quote “everyone works from home at this Co in the USA”…
Anyway, the local Co has a strangely different policy….they assume you are slacking off which is not true.
Thankfully i no longer work for them and have no desire to ever work for the Australian arm ever again.
Anyway, i had lunch and went up to my local shopping place, Studfield Shopping Centre…basically a “strip shopping centre”…named as it’s a strip of land along a major road, Stud Road.
I bought the newspaper from the newsagent, went to the local Cafe, sat down and had a coffee and filafel. All just normal things. I get back to my car, and notice another car parked close to me. Full of rubbish at first glance. Empty containers. Bottles. Cereal packets. I had to make a call whilst i was there, so i did that, and whilst on the phone i noticed this car had other items in it.
The car was full of them. Then whilst i was on the phone i glanced over and the owner of the car was in the front seat. It was an elderly woman. So it was obvious that she was actually living in her/out of her car. In Australia. The “lucky country”.
She had driven off before i got to write down her license plate and try and help her.
So what do i do? Apart from waiting for her to show up in that shopping centre.
