    $900 later, and my tooth is now held in place by wires.

    It will fall out again later. The quote was $12,000 to put two implants in there (the other front tooth will also possible die).

    Upper lip is rather well torn up.

    If you need anything mate drop is a line.

    I'd be looking at doing a trip to see an overseas dentist - get some work done and throw in a holiday.

    Hope they catch the bastards.

    Upper jaw is all swollen and sore, so I can't eat much.

    I love custard. It occurred to me that I could consume custard. Screw trying to lose weight, gimme custard. Shitloads of the stuff.

    Stopped by at IGA Leederville.

    For the first time ever, they didn't have any custard tarts.

    Devastated. Emo.

    There's not a whole lot of reason to even exist if you can't get IGA custard tarts.

    Not my best weekend.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Spent yesterday afternoon wasting $900 on putting a tooth back in, despite being told clearly that the tooth will have died and will fall out in a few weeks.

    Wasn't ready yet to accept life without a front tooth (ie the resulting speech problems) so spent the money.

    Extremely uncomfortable time in the dentist's chair. Agony.

    It occurred to me... why the bloody hell don't dentists have foot masseurs?

    For $900 and about half an hour, I want some fringe benefits, dammit.

    Dunno about you lot, but if I had someone massaging the hell out of my feet then it would be a whole lot less painful.

    I need to get rich and be able to afford to take a stripper and masseur to the dentist.

    Is there any health insurance that covers this?

    Yup, the teeth will probably end up being a SE Asia job. Still gonna cost me money, though.

    Catching the bastards: One of my rules is that every destination goes on my TomTom GPS. Dunno the address? Sorry mate, can't drive you. Having the person say the address out aloud also means that it gets recorded by the audio. Which will help with catching this bloke. Smart move on my part.

    The cops went through the house where these four went. The bloke that hit me had vanished, but the police have photographed and documented everyone else in the house. They'll find and arrest this bloke fairly quickly. It's been handled by a detective, instead of the usual junior uniform cops that generally ignore taxi assaults.

    The new cameras that were put in taxis about three years ago are paying off these days. Audio recording, three photos per second, four cameras, etc.

    Someone strangled me in the car in November. He's been busted and can't sidestep it because of camera footage. His lawyer is trying a few tricks to get him a spent conviction, but at least he can't deny what he did.

    People whinge and bitch about the conduct of taxi drivers, but don't realise that many of them are shitting bricks every night because they don't have the skills to deal with this sort of stuff.

    I really need to go find a more peaceful occupation. Maybe something in Iraq or Afghanistan.

    After all the police statement, etc, was done, I did a few bog laps of Northbridge in my taxi.

    Kept making eye contact with other taxi drivers.

    "Don't ya just hate drunk Irish dickheads?" I kept saying to everyone.

    With a smashed lip and dried blood all over my face.

    Some pretty priceless facial expressions from other drivers.

    ----------------------------------------------

    Figured that I'd have a go at eating spaghetti. My only food consumption has been the grand total of two cans of soup since 10pm Friday night (Sunday afternoon now).

    Rather hungry now.

    Dammit, can't even chew spaghetti.

    ----------------------------------------------

    A hottie drunk milf thought I was cute last night. Very amorous and enthusiastic lady.

    She wanted to kiss me on the lips. Screw driver conduct issues, if the woman wants to kiss me then let her.

    Had to fob her off. Upper lip is just one big scab of dried blood.

    Of all the weekends to have a smashed lip.

    Pretty sure that if I rocked up at her place in a few weeks and said, "hey, remember that kiss that you wanted?" she might not be too impressed.

    Dammit.

    Knocked out a front tooth. Can't find a 24 hour dentist in Perth to try and put my tooth back in right now (the Claremont one is closed).

    I'll post the other photos once the police investigation is done.



    Cheap shot while you were still sitting or just getting up?

    Regardless, hope the tooth is sorted and you get some justice.

    There is a list.

    Obviously, the preferred favourite is to stick his head in a workshop vice and then destroy his jaw with a sledge hammer.

    Second choice is to squash his hand in my 18 ton hydraulic press at home, and then have a go at him with a baseball bat. Piñata style.

    If I get to see him again, I'll put it to him that he'll cop a year in jail, that I know plenty of bikies and prison guards, and will have the word spread around that he's actually a kiddy fiddler. Think of me when he's being fucked up the arse every day. Heck, if can confirm his address them info pamphlets might get made and delivered to surrounding letterboxes.

    Naturally, I'll be trying to find out some info about him later on. I want info about his parents. Call them on the phone and explain what their son has been up to, and then send photos to media outlets in that area. Bit of embarrassment and shame for the family, etc.

    ---------------------------------

    Just got a phone call from a cop. The bloke that strangled me in November pleaded guilty this week. Got himself a $1500 fine and a spent conviction. FIFO guy, so including a few grand for a lawyer that's cost him an entire two weeks pay. Damn shame that he got the spent conviction.

    Meanwhile, if I carry something like pepper spray in the car I get charged with carrying a weapon. Lovely.

    The Libs, on the back of giant success in NSW, have decided that they want to tax bank deposits. That's right - taxing the money when you earn it isn't enough, taxing it when you spend it again isn't enough, so let's tax it when it gets put into the bank at the end of the day as well.

    HOORAY!

    Are you sure they are not talking about term deposits?

    If you're correct then that is pretty fucked up right there

    In most states and territories, including NSW, it is illegal to carry or possess pepper spray or mace. These items are classed as prohibited weapons. The only exception is in Western Australia, where pepper spray and mace are defined as controlled weapons, meaning that ownership of them is legal, but is restricted.
    https://www.sydneycriminallawyers.co...-in-australia/

    There are lots of other sources that say the same thing, you have a genuine reason and lawful excuse to carry it on your person, the test would be after using it whether it was a justified and reasonable use of force, I'd rather be charged than injured personally...

    Two problems:

    1) A criminal conviction lasts longer than injuries. Apply for a job five years later that requires a police clearance and you won't get that job. Likewise for travel overseas.

    2) A criminal conviction results in Dept of Transport deciding that the person is no longer a "fit and proper person" for taxi driving. Cancellation of taxi driver's licence results in loss of livelihood.

    Fucked either way.

    Always got to weigh up the pros and cons i guess, I'm only a lowly truck driver so I'm not expected to be fit nor proper...

    The defence when i used it was that it was "a measured response with a predictable outcome and no intent to cause lasting harm" whereas if I'd hit him back the result was not predictable.

    Could be worthy of further investigation anyway, confirm where you stand legally and it could end up making a few taxi drivers safer if it falls on the right side of the law and you spread the word.

    This ^^^ Unless there is some restriction purely put in place regarding taxi drivers or a condition from the taxi board then it is legal to carry the commercially available pepper sprays from surplus stores etc on you and use it for protection I wouldn't go carrying it into a nightclub or pub when going on the piss but it shouldn't be an issue for protection
