Story
Tagline
Bewildered, but glad to know that...
Introduction
Married to Angela, (29yrs) 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. :)

Have we become so weak that this had to happen?
 
Wow, way to be overly sensitive Australia. I suppose when the truth hurts the best way to deal with it is to go bat shit and fire someone.

+Liam Gallagher the same principle that allows you to spout such racist stupidity about Muslims and indigenous Australians without any repercussions is the same principle that let's me call you an inbred racist idiot and the very same principle which is not being respected by firing the SBS presenter. Everyone is entitled to an opinion, even if their opinions are different to ours, shocking I know, and we need to allow people the freedom to express their opinions publicly, even if, like yours, it's only so we can ask be reminded how stupid racism is...

By the way, aboriginals, African Americans, native Americans, Papuans... Hell! Even Muslims fought for the allies in the world wars

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. :)
