    It is frustrating, maybe it's time to update the guidlines to include first to reply first right to buy ? Maybe not maybe we just need to suck it up.
    Totally agree no one likes to miss out on a deal but in the long run there's always another.....usually when I can't justify the $$$$$

    Then perhaps when they list something they should mention they'll only "sell to who ever they like" So the rest of us know it's not for sale to us and get a bit pissed when it appears your'e first it's actually sold to someone else further down the line because you weren't on the like list? Either way as has been mentioned what you want more often than not will appear on here again and more often than not when you can't afford it or able to cover your tracks from the other half if you do! I'm not losing sleep over it , just like the Aucklanders having to pay our fuel prices for a change. Suck it up and move on. Not losing any sleep over that either

Pm'd next day when I could get on the computer and guess who missed out! My fault as I've had a coupe of good things happen this week so three was pushing it I guess. Not sure of all the etiquette on here but thought first in to say yes had it unless deal fell over before next in line stepped up? Not really upset but a wee bit disappointing as this was my third attempt and for other reasons missed out previously. Would be nice if the phone app could be made to allow PM possible and an easier way of up loading photos would be good as I don't do it often and it takes ages to rmbr how to do it.

I seriously suspect the clown that invented work might have had his hand in this whole aging thing. It's got government department written all over it as who else would come up with , much less implement such ideas?

    First wave of the day and I pulled my Hammie, carried on for about another hour but could not turn of my back foot, and the surf wasn't big either.

    Being woken up at zero dark o'clock with dogs growling and barking and one hell of a commotion in the living area. Roared out to find neighbors pet possum sitting on kitchen bench (some fur had been let out getting there) must have come in the dog door then up the stairs. Went to grab it to stop a murder to have it run up my bloody arm and sit on my shoulder. Marched it back home put in their open window and jammed it shut!!!

    I know. But if there's issue's with people commenting rather than privately messaging and missing out then maybe there should be some clarification on which is prioritized with regards to who is first.

    When you hear that the big pig you caught and then carried out whole with a work mate has and the back straps disappear, eye fillets vanish and the belly has been given away. Still yet to see any of it

    Last time I will let the third fella singe the pig.

    Ha. One would imagine it'd be under koha heading. One back steak was cos his son singed the pig. Which is what my mate and I could have easily done. He ate one.

    And the belly he gave to a mate because they give each other pigs and fish all the time.

    Only saving grace is the legs aren't bruised from the dogs cos they were on its ears.
