Living in the land of no service.

Service in Perth is rubbish and it makes me nuts. I've been observing it for years and now it's time to let it out. I've travelled a lot and seen how it works in other places too so I am able to say categorically that service in Perth is amongst the worst in the world.

Do you know one time I was at Rottnest and a bunch of people were standing at what can only be called a canteen (you know like school with the mini roller door you queue up at to order sub standard food!!). Anyway we all stood waiting to order and then the clock must have hit closing time and a pimply faced 15 year old just pulled that roller door down right in our faces. WA Tourism at its best.

Once Rob and I plus 2 or 3 other people walked into a cafe in Cottesloe wanting to sit down and order but a couple of us headed to the toilet first. The manager cut us off and denied us access to the toilet because we weren't paying customers. We told him we were all about to sit and eat but he was convinced we would use the toilet and run without spending any money so he wouldn't let us in.

There's so many other stories but I'm sure you get the idea.

I'm sorry that I have dereded a good laugh at the thought of you getting a roller door slammed in your face by the guy who looks like the nerdy-kid character on 'The Simpsons' (Paper or Plastic.)I do so enjoy reading your blog...keep it up!
