32nd of July?

It is the little things that matter…check this full page ad paid for by Auckland Council in the East and Bays Courier…touting a fantastic gym offer that is available until the “32nd July 2012″.

I hope his¬†proposed¬†rail system won’t be using this¬†calendar¬†for their scheduling.

    Is that the best you could find for a Friday morning? Doesn’t seem worth anyone’s time.

        Even funnier is when you learn what Whale Oil Beef Hooked means – try saying it in an Irish acent

      Daniel.    Sometimes such a trivial little error as pointed out by Whale, is really good for a laugh.  In this case, a laugh at the Auckland Council, remember that same organisation that was set up to save millions, and has not delivered one dollar of savings.

      Seems those same exec’s might be producing the scheduling and timetables, no wonder they can’t achieve their savings. ¬† ¬†Great for a laugh.

        It’s kinda like reading the Dumbpost and continually finding poor grammar and primary school level spelling in every page…..

      Hi Daniel, typos are fun, we don’t always have to be serious, do we? Not worth the time? What, 5 seconds? Move on to the next post and be happy :-)

    The Council should not be paying for this. I have heard the Council on the radio advertising some fictitious new year this month, another thing the ratepayer should not be funding!

    I’ll pay my rates on the 32 July, if that helps

    5 out of every 4 Auckland council staff can’t do maths.

      I note that staff numbers have increased by exactly 100% they now have seven!

        ¬†Doubt it – really – it’s not their advert.

    Offer ends 32nd of July?

    Does that mean the offer never ends?
    Some smart bastard nees to keep this paper for a few years and then apply for the offer.
