    Default Waiheke Islanders complaining about ferries

    I dont get it..
    Waiheke Islanders , complaining about ferries : high cost and irregular service.

    They chose to live on an Island, physically separated from Ak's rate race.
    So surely to God , anyone living on an Island way out in the harbour would know ferries arnt cheap to run and will allways be an irregular sort of service : subject to sea/weather issues & breakdowns .
    Cant have it both ways.

    If we moved the island, so it was inland, they would be the first to complain :-)

    Just like the whiners livin' in the wops down south complaining that they don't have birthing services and a hospital at their letterbox.

    You chose to live rurally.

    Shut up.

    nah...they get stuck with the rates too.

    Jokes aside, No doubt they would prefer a helicopter service. Free of course.

    We live rural and the only service we get is a rates bill.

    We get no post, no couriers, no rubbish collection or recycling. So what are we paying for? You live in town while we get ripped off, maybe we should stop paying.

    They chose . . . :-)
    If they tried going to work without the ferries they'd certainly have something to moan about
