Last Wednesday was, well, interesting.
On my elated way from a meeting where I had brokered a potentially large and beneficial housing partnership between my council and a large university, I received a call from Kristen from Telstra, telling me that I had been selected from 2500 entrants to be one of 25 social reviewers of the HTC Desire.
As I tried to maintain my composure at the news, I arrived at the point where my car should have been. I checked the street signs. Right street, right spot. I checked the parking signs. SHIT. Clearway from 4pm. I looked at my watch. 4.10pm. SHIT. I had been towed!
Four hours and $450 later, I had my car back. And a new phone.
Swings and roundabouts, indeed.
