Why people will queue for half an hour or more at a service station to take advantage of cheap or should I say 'less expensive' fuel.

I've never waited for than 10 minutes at Shell there.

I wouldn't complain either; It's 20c per litre cheaper than most places around, and I can use my 4c per litre Coles docket, as well as my staff discount.

Sounds like a shocker.

I'm not sure about Adelaide, but here in Perth the fuel stations play games where on Tuesdays and Wednesdays they drop the price by 15 to 20c a litre.......because they can.

I deliberately fill up on days I know the station will be quiet like a Friday or Saturday night. Better off paying $5 more a tank than undergoing the tedium of a 30-minute wait.

Had the same problem a couple of years ago with a bloke 2-3 houses over. He’d crank up his circular saw / angle grinder no earlier than 9:30pm.
My kids weren’t even school age & my alarm for work goes off at 3:15am. After the second night I rang the police - never heard him again.

December 23 2017: We finished up at work at noon on the 22nd, I had box tickets for the BBL and had some time to kill so I went to the pub and waited for the missus to finish work.
They went down a little too easily so when we got home and while waiting for the missus to get ready I downed a few more.
Roll on the corporate box where there wasn't a moment that I didn't have a beer or cc's in one hand, and a red in the other.

Around 6:45am on the Saturday morning, hungover to the max, awaiting the onslaught I was going to cop for messing up the night before, the dude across the road starts his whipper snipper, then mower then leaf blower, I had to just lay there and pretend I was sleeping through it hoping the wife would get up to go shopping soon.

I used to get along with him really well and often helped him unload his trailer and ute, he made the mistake of asking me after I'd had a few one afternoon if he'd pissed me off, I let him know then, we don't talk or wave anymore.

Legally, 8 am.

But to be considerate to your neighbours - particularly when said neighbour's house wall is within a few metres of where you want to hoover the leaves from your precious brickwork - then 9 AM or later, certainly. Or use a broom.

And when said neighbour bangs on your fence to get your attention and politely asks you to defer using your 2-stroke motor driven noisemaker until a more reasonable hour, then the correct response is to apologise and comply. To argue the point, to insist that you Simply Must Do The Job before the organics collection truck comes past, to feign surprise when being told that it is not yet 8 AM - and particularly to start the f*cking thing up again not two minutes after your neighbour returns to his house - is to mark yourself as an inconsiderate dickhead.

Why yes, I have had issues with neighbours before, why do you ask?
