Safe Driving

I’m a young P plater and if I do say so myself, I’m a very good driver. I got my license on my first try, so I’d have to be good at it. I don’t see anything pointing in the direction of me not being able to drive properly and safely. My parents, however, disagree …

Car Disappointment

Do you ever have those days where literally everything goes wrong? That was my day today. I live in Brighton, a small town in Melbourne, Australia and I got up at 6:00am to go to the beach before work. I work your typical 9:00am-5:00pm job which is okay. I work to live rather than live …

Rushed Car Service

I’m from Melbourne, Australia and I live up to the stereotype that everyone Australian holds about Melbournians. I am footy-mad, love going to the pub on a Saturday night and have a girlfriend who is obsessed with the fact that we live in the shopping capital of Australia. So let me set the scene here. …

Snappy Customer

I thought driving was supposed to be fun. Why else would everyone go through all the cost, effort and bureaucratic rigmarole of getting a license? Sure, people have to get places, but that’s what public transport is for. Driving is for getting around while also having a good time… isn’t it? Please tell me that …

Boats Aren’t Real

People always say the world is getting smaller, and I think that’s a real shame. We used to have such a desire for adventure and discovery as a species, but it just seems to have gone away. Humanity went to the moon, and then we kind of just gave up, decided there wasn’t anything else …

I’m the owner of a wedding car company in Melbourne. Having successfully run this business for over twenty years, I’ve been fortunate enough to experience some of the happiest moments of hundreds of people’s lives. I think in twenty years, I can count on one hand the amount of times anything has gone wrong. Unfortunately, …

Half Empty

I live on a busy road, which offers a whole lot of convenience plus some pretty extreme noise pollution at peak hour. Before moving here, I wouldn’t have thought there were enough people in the area to warrant such a din, but I guess it is the main artery between two towns, and people need …

Silent Car Repair

As the recently-elected mayor of this town, it’s my personal responsibility to drive around town and make sure the regular people are doing well. It’s one of my favourite parts of the job. It means I spend a lot of time in my vehicle though and need regular car servicing. But it is definitely worth …

The Greatest Ever

We’re all familiar with the classics of literature. Shakespeare, Dickens, Tolstoy, Austen, Poe. The thing is, they aren’t the best. That’s just what we’ve been made to believe. There is another, far greater than all of the supposed greats put together. His name was Peter Borris, and he was the greatest author and playwright of …
