it happens in threes?

well last night i got home from work to find my gas hotwater system has died (cost $1060 for a new one fitted) so i decided to go check what a new one was worth on the net at the servo up the road as i dont have net at home yet.

well on the way i got done by the cops for 81 in a 50 zone theres no houses around that area but still thats the rules as the cop said i just put my foot down at the wrong time.(cost 3pts and $150.00)

then i came back to find that someone has tried to break into my house unsecesfully though.

so much for new rims for the XR

81 in a 50 zone thats bloody good to get away with a fine like that...in melbourne we lose our license for doing 25 or more over the limit. However dude I wish you all the best in getting ur hotwater system fixed and glad nothing was stolen (the guy not getting in is better news)

Ahh sorry to hear the news 61sg. Hope luck picks up for you real soon. I've had my fair share of happening in 3's hate to say it but it happens to everyone.

In regards to speeding, i've done a simialr offence a few years back and copped 3 points. I have to say the police i dealt with was decent as i was speeding on the highway not residential and basically i got my licence saved.
