Story

Bewildered, but glad to know that...
Introduction
Married to Angela, (30yrs) and father of three adult sons, James, Blair and Elliot, and grandfather of Stella Grace.  My role is to be wrong.


Our first website, ShopSafe.com was online in 1996. Since then we have added ShopSafe.com.au, ShopSafe.co.nz as well as a number of other ShopSafe-based tld's.

We regard ourselves as consumer advocates but I should first tell you what we cannot do. ShopSafe is a private company with no direct relationship with the merchants we list. We cannot instruct a listed merchant to do anything at all.

What we can do is remove a merchant from our listings. We are quite prepared to do this if we consider that a ShopSafe-listed merchant has not conducted a transaction with you in a fair, honest and business-like manner.

A listing on a ShopSafe website is valued by our listed merchants. We accept less than 40% of all applications for listing.

(Disclaimer: The ShopSafe group of websites (registered 1997) have no affiliation or association with the shopsafe credit card (commenced 2002) promoted by the Bank of America)

These links are relevant to "Bragging Rights" below. If you like what we do, please link to them too. :)

Thanks, Liberal Party voters.
 
Meanwhile in Australia...

For my non-Australian G+ friends.

Australia has a policy of mandatory offshore detention (in Nauru and PNG) for asylum seekers that arrive here by boat.

These detention centres are rife with systematic abuse - documented cases of rape, child abuse, buggery, "blowjobs for hot showers", psychological torture and murder of Reza Berati.

http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2015-03-21/moss-review-confirms-forgotten-children-report/6337576

The +Liberal Party of Australia​​ has just passed the Australian Border Force Act 2015 http://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/Bills_Search_Results/Result?bId=r5408 that imposes a 2 year jail term on anyone working in these centres who reports such abuses. Teachers, nurses, doctors.

I'd love to hear the government's supporters stand up proudly and say they support this legislation.

I think Couriers Please might be the worst company for deliveries anywhere in Australia. Years ago, when LCD Monitors were newly-out and still cost about $1K, Couriers Please picked one up for us from a supplier but never delivered it. The pickup was still in their system the last time I looked a few years ago. They would not pay compensation They said, "It's not lost, it's late. There is nothing we can do. Try your insurance company." We receive up to twenty deliveries a day here via various companies and every now and then, one of our suppliers slips up and sends something via Couriers Please, despite our instructions. Whenever an item goes missing or is late, it's almost always Couriers Please. There was yet another incident today. That's why I am finally writing this review. :) If I could think of a motto based on more than a decade of unfortunate dealings with this company, it might be, "Stay safe, stay away from Couriers Please". :)

This hotel is a bargain if you choose your room carefully. Don't stay on the bottom floors if you do not like the sound of a train going past. You won't hear them on the higher floors, though, especially those with Harbour Bridge views on the opposite side of the hotel. Service is determined and faultless. :)

We wash our own cars but every now and then we call Fab to give them all some special love. It's great. Fab was here a few weeks ago but we still feel like we're driving around in new cars. BTW - when I said "all", I meant my sons' cars as well. We've only got one each. :)
