Or your car, local shops, or even house can be wrapped up in it!A puzzled (along with the rest of us) minstrel states the 'begged' question :Their time will come....its workforce soon ! Out into the big bad world ;-)So, I think i've solved the riddle of Mx3's ("Makes Mental" Matauri) logic!Odd people, these Aussies - most of that post sort of makes sense (at least for "Makes Mental" Matauri), although the part about "students have finished exams and it's 'schoolie' time" confuses me - wouldn't schoolie time be when they go to school rather than when they're on summer break? The one I really don't get is the bit about hiding the toilet paper - when the kids are home from school up here, I buy more toilet paper - I dread to think of what they would do if we ran out...
Yar, the students haven't had time to 'workforce' yet, so they can't just go into a nearby store and purchase their own T.P.
That means don't give them any money, if they want something, buy it for them.
Yar, so to prevent 'schoolies' from just taking T.P. from their bathroom at home, hide it all.
Minstrel makes an interesting point. Solution: You know where you hid it, no problem. For the 'schoolies', give them one roll each for 'personal' use and it has to last the week!
It's easy, minstrel, Once you learn to get inside the head of this aussie thinking. Does make your psychiatric diagnosis more difficult though.
