Unusual freebies from customers

Recommended Posts

That is bizarre, do you think the attitude to L.A and those working in behalf of is same in NZ as UK i.e we the tax payer pay your wages you don't deserve anymore.

 

When I've been in NZ. Have our Bach(2nd home for holidays, often a rickety old shed) for a week, take this, take that.

 

I don't think so. Like I say, old school and farmers are out with the tea and stickies and lunch but most other places it just doesn't seem to be in the psyche. It's not ignorance or people being rude. I gave a spare box of beers to the rubbish collection guys last year and they looked at me like it might be poisoned. I had to convince them it was OK and it was just in thanks for not chucking my rubbish down the road every week. I get the same attitude be it from my private customers or when I'm working my council job. It's worse in the cities and towns. You get used to it but it's far different from being in the UK (at least IMO) when we got fed and watered nearly every job.
