So the conclusion is that in a fight, Superman would win because he has more super powers but in everything else, Batman kicks ass! Nuff said?

You say, "These pants aren't mine."
Don't even bother with the accusations that the cop planted it there, don't bother with denial. Simple. You get far less time in jail for stealing pants than you ever would for crack.

Hi, I'm writing to you to ask why you don't put more pineapples in the retro party mix? I know it seems like a dumb question and not one to get cranky about but I only buy this one for the pineapples and racing cars which I can't get any other way and I just cracked open a bag that had one pineapple, three racing cars, one milk bottle and one set of teeth (which by the way aren't very nice now that the white parts aren't minty) and no spearmint leaves! They are my absolute favourite and I can't get them anywhere but the petrol station in a mix that has more pineapples than three of your bags! All this after opening a bag of snakes with only one yellow that I had to let my four year old have so I missed out (again). Please, please, please consider the pineapple likers among us and chuck a few extra in. Oh and bags of spearmint leaves for sale at the supermarket would be cool too.
Damn those Allens bags and their lack of good stuff!

I have a short gripe about one of our local Op Shops. I went in the other day on my quest to find the perfect cake stand for the wedding cake. Because I’m on this vintage kick (hence the pink stripy background. It’s what I would imagine made the perfect home for warm peanuts at carnivals and fairs) I figured no stone left unturned. I also have found some great stuff for the kids at Op shops in the past. Anyway, no cake stand which doesn’t surprise me. If I had one, I would never let it go. It would become a family heirloom (because I’m a hoarder). Anyway, I found this very pretty black jumper with pink flowers on the front and it was brand new with the tag still attached that said $6.50. Of course I picked one up. My kids are not only eating us out of house and home, they grow out of their clothes at a phenomenal rate. Anyway, I get to the counter to pay for the jumper and a really pretty top and she tries to charge me $9.95. When I asked her what the? she says I’m supposed to only look at their tag and not the brand one. Again, what the?Now, I’m not an uncharitable person. I always pay too much money at the Op Shop because I know it’s going to a good cause but being a charity, does that mean they can try and rip me off? First of all, I didn’t notice the second ticket so I wasn’t trying to be cagey. Second, I shop in there a bit for bits and pieces so it’s not like she hadn’t seen my face before. And third, don’t get huffy when I ask what the? I would have paid ten bucks for the jumper at Kmart or Target but you’re an OP SHOP!! The same one that wanted $250 for an antique chair that had staples in the skirt. Hello, any good bargain hunter would know that if it had been a truly untouched antique chair, it would have tacks in it like the useless but pretty chair next to my bed. All I can say is pffft! I would like to say that I won’t be going back in there but they have the cutest line of brand new stockings with love hearts and other shapes in them. I am a sucker for cute stuff...
