You're a corker mate! I know how it feels, although I refuse to bet on shitty pokies!

That's why you don't have much money - you waste it on pokies. Probably more entertaining setting $5 notes on fire - you end up with the same result - no money!

I work in the gaming industry in Queensland and although I can say the industry is QOGR regulated and people do win money on pokies, I also must say that there is little appeal for me seeing the actual source of gaming income. What is "Responsible Gambling" meant to mean anyway? Where do you draw the line? Anyway what I would say to you is $40 is a cheap lesson. When I make mistakes that cost me money, I consider the situation to have been a purchase of knowledge. A lesson paid for and learnt. Nothing is free after all, especially experience. It seems more worthwhile when viewed in that light.

How about this... I've been keeping a record of fuel costs over the last month and just now I've tallied it up. Now I live 3 minutes from work by car so keep that in mind. On average I spend $8.40 a day on fuel, that's $58.80 or almost $3,100 per year in petrol alone. To hell with that.

Petrol companies, to you, :moon:

There is always a tomorrow. Work out a budget that accommodates hidden XD related nasties and you'll be happy that you're within your means.

Could be worse digger.
You could be for forking out to fix a busted arse Commodore.......
Better to keep the XD cruising, and forget about the pokies!
Find out what the suspension 'thingy' is and fix it yourself.
Falcon suspension aren't hard to fix, plus you could always spend that
$70 on beers to do the job if you wanted!

oh, poor Phat! Don't beat yourself up, live my my motto "Your here for a good time, not a long time". Did you have fun sticking the $40 in the pokies? I bet you did........so what is the problem? If you were to die tomorrow, at least u were doing something u enjoyed rather than worrying about every last cent. Money aint the be all and end all...................living life with enjoyment is!!
