Crack of dawn

For the first time ever I had to take the 6:05am sailing from Waiheke. A posse of about 50 people had turned up for that first boat. But 6:05 came and went. At first I thought it was a dastardly ploy to drum up business for the Matiatia coffee shop (tell everyone the boat leaves at 6:05 but routinely depart late), but then we were told that Starflyte had broken down en route to Waiheke and had had to run back to Auckland. So we had to cram on the 6:40am instead, with its usual load of passengers. Thanks Fullers for a missed appointment.
Oh, and Quickcat still offers a sorry sight, all moored up where the Kestrel used to be. Perhaps they could lease it out to the Cloud to handle the overflow of revelling punters. Maybe offer a jazz band of an evening. She ain't going nowhere fast either.

Oh dear what can the matter be?
Fullers AGAIN?
A disservice to Waiheke?
*Star*flytes only delusionally?
When will it get sorted out?

Rhetorical question really isn't it?
I guess only when Auckland council especially A.T care enough
or one of John Key's American mates or ministers miss an appointment too?
but then they can probably afford helicopters.

Dear Hans

Why does this blog and Mr Versulys 'support' (for lack of a better word) Hitler, doing a basic look through Mr Versluys social media sites, he has liked etc many nazi related things, you would think a openly gay man such as himself would not support such things, I also agree with other comments from people who also went Anonymous, just because something is a meme or socially acceptable does not make it right, such as the others have pointed out 'cut4biber' etc, even looking back at the past at the type of hegemony society use to place on people of different ethnicity or sexual orientations, and when he is trolled or have things pointed out to him, all he does is accuse his critiques of working for fullers, he is a weak pathic small man, and the way he acts is frankly makes me pity what a small minded arrogant nazi loving man.

I can only hope one day you become smart enough to realizes your actions and at the very least do not make them so pubic I hope you feel ashamed by the type of blatant disregard you have shown to those affected by the events of WW2 and Hitler

Gosh, what sensitive bits we must have touched to elicit such response to a humorous and to the point satire.

Oh, and Ms Pearl, Godwinning a thread about Hitler is really straight out of 'Trolling for Dummies'.
