Man with kids in ute drives in Rundle Mall
Kids on board as man drives ute down Rundle Mall
Rundle Mall not drive-thru anymore
A rather silly breeder has been caught driving his ute through Rundle Mall, Adelaide SA with his two little kids in tow.
Earlier, the drongo dad had been involved in a minor collision, where he fled the scene without exchanging his deets. Minutes later, drongo dad was driving through Rundle Mall. For those of you that don’t know, Rundle Mall is like a street mall with shops down either side. You’re not supposed to drive through it, even though it looks like a street. The mall was in full swing with Sunday shoppers, and they fled out of the drongo dad’s path.
Drongo dad was arrested in a nearby street and charged with driving without due care, driving in a dangerous manner, acts to endanger life, and failing to exchange details at the scene of an accident. His ute has been impounded for 28 days and he’ll appear in court on a later date. I don’t know what became of the children, but I hope their mother has more sense than their drongo dad.
How much do you want to bet that alcohol and/or drugs were involved?
**Aussie Sabbath’s native natterings** A mall in Australia is not like a mall in the US. The term “Mall” applies to a street mall like Rundle Mall, where it’s a street lined with shops. These are usually closed to vehicles, hence why drongo dad wasn’t allowed to drive there. We call the US “mall” a shopping centre or a complex. We have big ones here, some like Erina Fair, Shellharbour Square, Charlestown Square and quite a few in Sydney are absolutely huge. There is a “mall” near where I live, that wasn’t too long ago opened to vehicular traffic. I drove through there on Christmas Eve, which felt really weird because the last time I’d been there, cars weren’t supposed to drive through it.
**Extra nattering** A “ute” is short for “utility vehicle” i.e. a truck with a flat bed bit on the back. A “drongo” is a stupid person, it’s like calling someone a moron. It can be used as a noun or an adjective.
Boy, 7, found driving by police
Drink-driving with the kids
I thought during the Australia Day long weekend that there’d be something going on involving kids and alcohol. Aussies tend to get drunk and crazy on Aus day. But no, it’s been quiet. Shame the same can’t be said for our cousins across the ditch! Here is a tale of two Kiwis who were caught boozing it up while driving.
An Auckland grandbreeder has been charged with allowing his 7 year old grandson to drive, as well as a few drink driving charges and child neglect charges. Tehere Maihi Maaka (49) was charged with dangerous driving, driving with excess breath alcohol and allowing his grandson to drive on a public road. Even though the boy was behind the wheel of the car, Maaka was still charged with reckless driving and drink-driving because it was presumed that he had driven the car at some stage in the day. They were pulled over by police around lunchtime (!!!) just 500m from Maaka’s house and when they breathalysed him, they found him to be nearly three times the legal NZ limit. At lunchtime!!! So if he was drunk, what was he doing driving and why was he looking after the boy while drunk??? Well, Mr. Maaka’s son has denied that his Daddy dearest has done anything wrong! He denies that the boy was driving and that his dad is hurting and going through a bad time at the moment. So, did the cops just make up lies about who they saw driving? I don’t think so. This might explain why the boy was allowed to be supervised by a drunk, because his DNA donor doesn’t give a shit! Maaka has been remanded on bail without plea and will re-appear in court next month.
Our second sloshed story involves an egg-warmer by the name of Georgina Sheila Walters (30). She was busted with an open can of bourbon and coke beside the driver’s seat with her 9 and 11 year old daughters in the car with her. Hmmm I wonder if that drink belonged to the kiddies? Probably not, because bourbon is one of the most vile things I’ve ever drunk. It’s not even nice with coke. The cops clocked her at twice the legal limit and she told them that she’d drunk a bottle of wine and two beers before driving home. Is she insane? That would have me feeling very dizzy, let alone being able to drive. And where did she get the booze from? Did she go to the pub and down them in front of her daughters? Or did she get them from the bottlo and guzzle them out of a paper bag like the classy bitch she is? She managed to dodge the slammer and was sentenced to 100 hours of community service and disqualified from driving indefinitely. This is her THIRD drink-driving offence, that should mean jail time because she obviously didn’t learn the first two times! Sadly, her daughters remain in her “care” and family members have expressed concern for their safety and wellbeing as long as they remain with her because Ms. Walters has had ongoing problems with the grog. I hope that should anything happen, that the family will be willing to care for the girls and give them the safety and stability they deserve.
Both matters have been reported to Child, Youth and Family services.
I got into an argument about welfare sanctioning with some lefty socialist greenies the other day. I suggested that Australia/New Zealand should adopt the US model of food stamps and EBT cards to prevent benefits from being wasted on booze and drugs. They told me that people should be allowed to “self-medicate” and then called me a racist because I said that people should work and be resourceful in times of adversity, like our ancestors did. I basically told them to go chain themselves to a coal loader and get squished between the gears, because this kind of thinking is dangerous and produces the welfare entitled drug and alcohol addicts that think the world should lift them up and wipe their arses for them. Drug and alcohol problems don’t just hurt the addict, they hurt those around them. No more enabling. No more excuses.
