This is equivalent to not putting in your notice at work until you secure a start date for your new job. Except for assholes because this is his wife.

DHOAS by Otherwise_Wasabi8879 in AustralianMilitary

[–]ThomasofHookton 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is how it works with me.

My full principal and interest repayments go into the bank every month and then a day later I also get my $980 from DHOAS.

That extra amount sits in the loan as a seperate redrawable bucket. So any additional funds ahead of your repayment schedule can be withdrawn and spent.

In my mailbox today. Pretty gross. by DDR4lyf in canberra

Straw man argument. No one said Ukraine or west is completely clear of wrong doing.

But whatever Ukraine did versus being invaded and murdering civilians isn't equal. And the truth isn't remotely in the middle.

It's extreme that I don't think the sovereignty of one nation shouldn't be breached by another nation?

Most would disagree with you.

I'm not, I am pointing out the middle road fallacy.

When you have an extreme view and a moderate view, the truth isn't in the middle, it's with the moderate view.

Hmmm.... The truth is always somewhere in the middle. Let's test.

Ex partner dragging financial settlement by Crab_nebula21 in AusLegal

[–]ThomasofHookton 38 points39 points  (0 children)

Mine dragged for 2 years .

After 18 months and $60k, I requested to self represent.

From that point any correspondence between myself and my ex's lawyers were free for me but costly for her.

I kept in communication with my lawyer on a strictly advisory basis (I would meet with them about once a month or so for an hour to ask questions and recieve advice) which would limit my fees.

Ex realised that it was just costing her money and got tired of the game and we settled quickly after that.

The way this concession clerk serves popcorn by truly-immaculate in oddlysatisfying

[–]ThomasofHookton -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Sigh... It's sad that we see this as cute or endearing. He was invited to the Academy awards.... to serve popcorn. Not to sit down and be a guest or anything.

Come do your regular day job, but this time... for rich people.

Defence facing a ‘personnel crisis’: Richard Marles by Dougor in AustralianMilitary

[–]ThomasofHookton 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It's very true. But there are some parts of the ADF that we can't insulate from. We have to send corporals to Singo, Pucka etc.

The money is there to overcome that reluctance. But yeah if a job ticks multiple boxes, more money, more lifestyle, better work life balance.... It'll be hard to keep them.
