    Can anyone explain why we suddenly need two separate places to Introdooce Yourself?

    Maybe i am blindsighted because I work at a pawnbrokers, and we don't have three balls (have i alluded to that on here, because i don't think i have)

    Or maybe I am just nowhere near as clever as I like to think. Little help? haha.
    You did write a story about working for a usurious money-lender. In my book, that's someone like Cash Converters, who are pawnbrokers.



    Cheers.

    Subsequent therapy helped me sort out the more annoying behavior at least to the extent people tolerate me now.
    Let me know how that works out, Roger. I may try it for myself. Meanwhile I sit here waiting for stories to be posted in the Workshop, my gut twisting in the wind. So, what’s holding you up? Old age?

    I read the back of rat poison carton this morning. I’m running out of material.

    Welcome

    When I was much younger I would occasionally read the fine print on toilet paper wrapping. I especially remember the health warning about the risk of lead poisoning from using newspaper for the job. *thinks - maybe there's a story there somewhere*

    Come on Smartass, I expect more thorough research from you. I posted that comment, before I put up the piece of writing about Cashies. And Yes it is CashConverters.

    Heehee. Oh OX you sure can make me giggle. Thanks for that.
    Typos are very important to all written form. It gives the reader something to look for so they aren't distracted by the total lack of content in your writing.
