Jarrod had signed up his neighbours to their new contracts on Quantum's online client system, bypassing even New Business so only he received a commission. Word therefore spread along two distinct tangents - he was a villainous traitor to the New Business staff and a heroic trailblazer to everybody else. Soon enough Quantum employees everywhere began harassing neighbours, friends and relatives in desperate attempts to replicate Jarrod's celebrated success.
A month later it was time for the council's biannual waste collection. The usually pristine front lawns of Magenta Circuit slowly became littered with broken furniture, rusty bikes and barbeques, mouldy clothing, soiled mattresses and an assortment of other formerly hidden-away junk.
Jarrod's dilemma had come thick and fast. It was intolerable and exhausting, commanding his every inner thought and outer action. He could not escape it and he could barely even make sense of it. Life was unfair and it was barely even his fault. Nights were short and the days agonisingly long.
Getting to work and back was the most difficult part. It mean walking out the front door in plain view, then down the street to the bus stop where goodness-knows what familiar faces awaited him. Since many of the neighbours were now without cars it felt like everybody was forever catching the bus. It used to be only Jarrod and sometimes Mr. Brown and very occasionally his elderly mother, a retired mathematician who Jarrod would politely discuss Pythagoras with.
THE DOOBIE BROTHERS
These Californian juggernauts began their days playing good old fashioned rock and roll to bikie crowds, but with a change of lead vocalists morphed into a blue-eyed soul group, most evident in the Grammy-winning "What a Fool Believes", co-written with none other than the ever-amazing Kenny Loggins.
Playing radical, off-the-cuff punk rock smash hits since the mid-1980s, THE OFFSPRING remain an incomparable oddity. They reached the zenith of success that 1990s punk rock bands could only dream of with their breakthrough Smash album.

You reach a point in your career where you don’t audition anymore. People audition you. They call and say ‘Hey, we’ve got this part, we think you’d be great for it’ like they know you, when you’ve met once and pressed palms at one of those award nights that none of us care about and even less see their validity. Which awards? That’s not important. What’s important is you look the part. Or maybe the part looks you since you’re so in vogue at the moment. Blonde is out. Skinny’s in. And black, well they’re far too self-conscious to go there.
With the Avengers movie being as popular as it is the topic of superpowers is on the table again, where people discuss what power they would choose if they were ever faced with the decision. Everybody has a different preference and their own reasons, but today I am going to share my thoughts on the topic.
I think super strength would be fun for a little while. Just being able to have the ability to go upto the biggest wankers ever and abuse them and then when they think they could easily take you, just beat them down. That would be so great.
“You’ve come here to do a documentary about me?”
Toadfish was incredulous at the very idea.
“Not exactly,” said television’s Lawrence Leung. “I’ll be doing a profile of a number of people in the local area for a project that I’m working on and you’ll only take up a small part of that if you’re willing to be involved.
Lawrence was stumbling over his words for some reason, his usual flowing speech faltering from the odd distraction of Toadfish Rebecchi who was sprawled across his coach wearing a crumpled brown suit with his tie loosened around the girth of his neck.
“Well, I’ll have to think about it, I guess.

It was raining in Erinsborough. Toadfish stood by the window in the lounge room of 30 Ramsay Street and looked solemnly outside – his face stricken with concern.
“Jarrod, you can’t let your neighbours judge what’s happened between us and let them dictate your life forever. This is just too important for that!” said Lawrence.

Getting a free feed at maccas
When you're out for dinner at maccas with your friends, you wait for them to order and head back to the table. Once they're back with the food, you quickly run up and let one of the workers know that they "forgot one large Big Mac meal" (or whatever you feel like eating) from the order.
