So my dad has a seizure at the pub and splits his lip open. It’s closing time, my grandmother is in bed and unable to drive. I’m 17, my sister 14 and my cousin is 22 and also living with my grandparents but still learning to drive. So, while he doesn’t need an ambulance he does need to stitches. We have no money and dad is too drunk to remember his pin number. So…well, my cousin drives us all the the hospital. They fix him up, my cousin drives us home. We all live, although it’s a scary ride. We go home to our mum and she grills us about our trip to dads as usual when she picks us up.

Mum: Did your dad drive?

Me: No. Not at all.

Mum: You sure? (sister), did dad drive?

Sister: No mum, promise.

Mum: Promise?

Me: Yeah promise.

Sister: We promise mum. It was (cousin) that drove us all to the hospital and then Dad was too ill to even go out.

Mum: (cousin) drove you to the hospital? What happened.

(We explain the seizure and the stitches.)

Mum: I didn’t know (cousin) had his license yet.

Sister: He doesn’t. He’s only have seven lessons. It was well scary.

(At this point I go bright red from worry about getting into trouble, my sister goes bright red from realising what she just said and my mother goes bright red from anger but manages to keep her cool while she’s driving. From the screaming over the phone later, my dad got another talking too. She also (calmly) explained to my cousin that next time he should just leave my dad and wait until the next day unless it’s an actual emergency.

I’m sitting at my desk on a very slow day, nothing to do as I’ve finished my work already and triple-checked it like always. And also like always, I’m surfing the Not Always sites.

Me: *reads first line of Not Always Right* Damnit.

Me: *moves on to Not Always Working, reads first line* Damnit!

Me: *continues on to Not Always Romantic, then Related, then the others* Damnit!!

Coworker: What’s the matter?

Me: I’ve already read all the stories on all the Not Always sites. What am I supposed to do now??

Coworker: *laughs at me*

(I have an online friend (female) that doesn’t live far from me (only about an hour and a half and we’re planning on meeting soon). My sister and her boyfriend make fun of me for being a virgin. I’m also a female.) Sister’s bf: She’s just mad that she doesn’t get a dick.

Sister: *runs over to me and whispers* Do you and *online friend’s name* have a secret relationship that no one knows about?

Me: No. . . But she did ask me out on a date.

Sister: *squeals* that’s so cute!

Sydney, Australia | Unfiltered | July 11, 2016

I worked for an home appliance rental company for a short time – 4 days to be exact. My choice I just didn’t want to be getting those who could least afford it into debt.

A client rings up.

Client “I want to pay out my account”

*I hand phone to co-worker

Co-worker “You want to pay out your account?”

Client “Yes I need to know the payout figure”.

Co-worker “Ok let me have your details and I’ll pull up your account to work it out”

*Client gives details

Co-worker “There will be an additional fee as stated in your contract”.

Client “Yes I know I just want to pay the account off and never have to worry about it again”

Co-worker “Um you only have 2 payments left, I wouldn’t recommend you paying it out”.

Client “I want it paid off now”

Co-worker “Ok you have 2 payments of $30 owing and the payout fee is $100, that makes it $160”

Client “Can I send a check?”

Co-worker “Yes but you are paying $100 you don’t need to do, plus a late fee because a cheque won’t get here before this week’s payment is due.

Client “What do you mean?”

Co-worker “You are paying by direct payment now, it comes out weekly. Tomorrow and next week. Why waste $100? As well as any fees the bank will tack on for stopping the payments”

Client “So you are telling me to just keep paying it?”

Co-worker “yes”

Client “Oh ok, goodbye” *click
