I am all in a quandry. Whatever shall I do? Please help.

I can understand the not gloating about the election result.

But what I am not clear on is the collecting of winning bets.

See, months back I made a bet in a bar in Melbourne with a fellow for $10000 that the Libs would get up. We shook hands and everything. He was not a buddy of mine but was introduced to me that evening. I was there with my buddy Pieman and he was a witness. In fact Pieman asked me straight - 'Are you good for it?' and I replied 'Yes. Yes I am.'

Should I contact this fellow to remind him of his bet and demand to collect?

Orruno.

And do you why I am indecisive?

Because as the evening in the bar wore on the fellow and I began to not see eye to eye about things. Him, a redheaded freckled older gent somehow started talking about Aboriginals, and I did not genuflect at the sheer greatness of the Aborigines of Oz instead pointing out how the ATSIC policy on immigration is nil, which shits me and he was appalled and communicated his affection by placing his hand on his heart and declaring 'They are my people.'

Red headed and freckled, readers.

Well.

It ended with him stomping off and declaring he could not possibly talk to me any more and I seem to recall yelling after him 'Yeah well good riddance cos nobody likes a patronising racist scumbag' or words to that effect.

Ahh.

Good times.

Anyhoo, whatdyareckon? Should I buzz and ask for my money? I think what I might do is write to Pieman and get his view. Yes. That will help things along.

Sure would like the cash, but. $10000 could get me some very nice shoes.
