whingeing pom

For the last two or three months, I've been calling a certain person who shall remain nameless on regular weekly basis. And the telephone conversation? Whining and whingeing from this person. Thanks to last night's Today Tonight, there's a Whingeing magazine very suitable for this person: Whingeing POM.

Whingeing Pom magazine

Macquarie Dictionary has an entry on whingeing pom.
whingeing Pom: a British immigrant, thought to be always criticising and complaining about life in Australia.

You can find out more about the Whingeing POM magazine at their website.

I somehow happen to know a number of people whom are best known for their whining and whingeing abilities.

Should this "nameless" person:
(a) Accept that his mobile phone charge will run out during the usual one hour plus call. OR
(b) Not say much at all and listen to the incoherrent ramblings at the other end of the line. OR
(c) Just not answer any calls on a Saturday morning around 10:30 ?

Does this "nameless" person also have to put up with how he's "fat", "poor", and "black"? Hell, does he/she even post comments on Ant's blog?

LOL @ DAVE....all of the above!

This "nameless" person should:
(d) makes sure he charges his mobile phone Friday night. AND
(e) gets a new battery for his mobile phone. AND
(f) be ready by 10.30am for the phone call.

If anything, you should show your friend Skype instead. THere's no need to charge batteries or spend something like six dollars on a one-hour call.

That "nameless" person was the one told me to use Skype. We mostly communicate in typing over the Skype network.
The cost of the mobile phone call to that "nameless" person is not $6. Vodafone to Vodafone is free per minutes, and now I have $300-something monthly credit in my iPhone 3G plan, I got to use it somehow.

Why would someone "type" to a "nameless" person on Skype ,when voice is enabled on that service?
I heard the "nameless" person is very kind and easy-going, but often misunderstood by the mobile phone stalker. Sometimes is pays not to have modern communication devices IMO.

Ant seems to like things that:
* are expensive
* are flashy When will he realize he's wasting money?

What's your problem Dave? Just because I don't like to get or use your beloved Microsoft products?
Posted by Antony Shen on 28 March 2009 1:06 PM.
Hey Vista Ultimate MSRP's at around $300. Apple OS X v10.5 retails at around $130. It's not Microsoft vs. Apple here. In some ways Apple is cheaper, in other ways Microsoft, and again, in even other ways others are cheaper. I'm talking about in general. You usually will get the higher priced "name brand" product instead of the cheaper "store brand" product.

Simply by not buying Microsoft products or not buying the cheapest products that are low quality in general and don't last long (yes, I am talking about in general) means that I am wasting money?
