No bitching from me today.

On Saturday I watched a guy have a heart attack at my local beach, then wait what must have been 15 minutes for an ambulance as the council life guards worked to save his life.

They managed to get a weak pulse, but he died later, either in transit to the hospital or once he was admitted. I think he was late 40’s, looked pretty fit.

Pretty shitty Christmas for his family and friends. Count your blessings peeps ..

The Monday bitch

Here’s your chance to moan to the rapidly growing audience here at Building a Better Bloke about anything and everything that pissed you off about your weekend or yet another crappy Monday at work.

To get the ball rolling, I’m gonna ask the universe to deliver me from my new neighbour – an aging northern beaches surfer with a $5 million dollar house (we live in a flat next door) and the worst taste in BBQ music I’ve yet to encounter.

Yesterday my girlfriend and I were treated to all 14 tracks of Daryl Braithwaite’s 1988 album Edge with said neighbour singin’ along “to the good bits”.

Just when we thought it was over … he stuck it on again. I’m buying some eggs for next weekend.
