13 and a half hours since the report of the power fault. As usual City Power has yet to give an ETR. I actually don't think they've ever done it.

Toilets that dribble (or have a very weak flush) when you try to flush them, and the turds and paper just swirl around in the bowl.

Second and third flushesdribbles also doesn't help.

I just walk away and leave it for the next person to consider.

Municipal vehicle license department. And to add to it everyone appears to be renewing 10 cars at a time with queries that take half an hour to resolve each

Some law somewhere that says the amount of time wasted in any sort of queue is inversely proportional to your amount of available free time

EG you decide to pop out in your lunch time of 30min ($free_time) to do some $thing, and the person in the queue in front of you have a query, or keep the clerks busy $free_time+30min...

Also applicable to rebooting BillWare - if everybody's reliant on a certain BillWare PoS, it will take years to reboot.

But when it's just a test PC, it'll take a minute (or less) to reboot...
