  1. Done Deal

    My early Monday morning experiences in the city:
    Catch glimpse of ABC breakfast TV show, resident airhead trioli’s usual vacant McHappy smile nowhere in sight
    Come across young Asian mother public-servant of see around the place, went to automatically acknowledge the expected usual plastic charming greeting. Not there, just completely ignored, scowl on face?
    In lift when forty-ish commonwealth public service enters, wearing voluminous red shirt. Doesn’t look left or right, up or down. Turns and face doors, legs stiff, feet wide apart, all the way rocks sideways back and forth, actually lifting each foot, like someone in a trance.
    Two more middle age cardigan type commonwealth publics overheard talking: “I am devasted, I don’t want to talk to anyone from Queensland!, she wasn’t joking. (Commonwealth Public servants all pretty much on a promise for initial 4% wage increase if labor got up.)
    Went into coffee shop next to commonwealth govt building: hard working owner, usually looks harried and overworked. Seemed a bit cheerful, I asked him what he thought of the result. Face lit up with a huge smile, “fantastic”.

    Same people will give you an off-the-cuff lecture on the evils of selfishness.
