I hate paying to park my car
Everything.If I was in charge everything would be free.
I resent paying out for pretty much most things, especially when it comes to Car Tax, Fuel and servicing.
I’m the same, it is unAustralian. I can understand it in the middle of a city like Sydney and Melbourne but Wollongong and Orange?? No wonder the shopping malls thrive with their free parking.
I always go somewhere else.
Using public loos
Not something I do pay for. Therapy. Talking to someone else shouldn’t bankrupt you.
We have a shopping centre here in Perth that charges for parking now. Boom gates to get in an d out.
First 2 hours are free.
As far as I know, Perth only has one pay to use loo, at the Perth Train Station. Fifty cents I think.
I recall being shocked that I had to pay to use the toilet when I was at Kings Cross station in London. I should have known better because my mother always referred to going to the toilet as “spending a penny” and I remember her surprise at Sydney’s Central Station when she found that the toilets were free.
Paying for the loo is something you never see here, I think there would be blood in the streets if people had to pay. Sydney Council installed a couple of very posh toilets near Hyde Park with a 50c fee but I think they ended up removing them after they fell into disrepair because no one used them (anyway they are gone now).
Currently resent paying £8 for a bottle of Waitrose Olive Oil when it used to be £4.35!!
Car tax,Council rates,Parking,Toilets,RV licence,Water rates VAT.
I resent paying a standard charge on my gas and electric meters
Having to pay £75 for a veterinary appointment annoys me,
that’s just the appointment treatment and medication is extra .
It’s quite common and traditional to have to pay here, “spend a penny” !
The one at Paddington station used to be the worst, scrabbling to find a 20p after a long journey . but that’s free now
A lot of tourist towns have loos where you have to tap your debit card at the barrier!
I wanted someone to service my home air conditioner.
The company wanted $141 just to come and have a look, before any work was done.
I never engaged them. The cheek of some people.
Paying £55 in addition to Council Tax to have my green waste bin emptied - it used to be included and now it has to be paid for separately.
Council will get you every which way they can. They need more money to keep their bar flush with grog. Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Do they grow in the UK?
Damn brexshiteers! I always planned to live in Spain for a few years - could have made my own there! (Tho I expect it is much cheaper there anyway!)
Change vets that’s outrageous .
Having said that I dread to take a deep breath at my vets in case they put it on the bill.
