Default Days off (Forced)

Finally it happened.
Due to the "new economic measurements package" issued by the government, to be implemented from september the first, me along other more than 500 people were fired from our jobs. So I will have some days off.
To take advantage from these days, I think it will be long time off, I started to delete the cluttering from my old working table. I want to install in it my new acquisition, a Triton router that I bought from a colleague from this forum. The router, in accordance with the forwarder's tracking system, is now in customs so it will arraive to my house very soon.
We also want to pay a visit to my son who is living in Chile.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!

There seem to be a lot of dummys here that think Socialism is great. Maybe we should have them call you. Have to say that you seem to be exactly the kind of guy the USA would do well to have immigrate.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

And worst of all, some of the politicians think your country and Zimbabwe are role model states.

... and the expropriation of land, and any property for that matter, without compensation, is currently on the table in our parliament

Western Australia has a much better climate and our jobs growth is increasing.
