Peter Haynes: Cry baby of the week

Our cry baby of the week is Peter Haynes, the Labour/Green aligned Albert Eden Local Board chairman who is concerned that a newer and bigger supermarket will mean he has to walk further to do his shopping.

Renovations to one of Auckland’s busiest supermarkets, expanded by a third to now be a half hectare, will be marked at an event next week but a community leader says the store is now too big.

Countdown Mt Eden, the Valley Rd shop with an average weekly customer count of 33,000, has been pushed out from 3560sq m to 5000sq m or a half-hectare.

Wiebe van der Veen, store manager, said another 50 people had been employed to staff the larger supermarket, operating in the expanded format since September.   Read more »

Cry Baby of the Week

This whinging cry baby isn’t identified by a complicit media, but they are a cry baby nonetheless, running off to the Human Rights Commission to complain about their rights being infringed…by a bank.

HSBC New Zealand is closing bank accounts with balances under $100,000 in a move one customer has blasted as discriminatory.

Local clients of the global bank have been told that “non-premier” banking services are being withdrawn.

A minimum of $100,000 in savings or $500,000 in home lending is required to qualify for HSBC Premier.

The customer told the Business Herald that he had been banking with HSBC in Auckland for “umpteen years”.

“I feel that I’ve been a victim and discriminated [against],” he said.

“To me, a bank should provide services to the public and help the needy, but not to bully those whose accounts do not hold a minimum balance of $100,000 at any one time.”

The customer said he had approached the Human Rights Commission over the matter.

Pleurnichard of the Week

We have a winner for crybaby of the week, or pleurnichard as the Cheese Eating Surrender Monkeys would say.

A Frenchman whose attempts to hitchhike out of the West Coast landed him in court says New Zealand should be renamed “Nazi Zealand”.

Cedric Claude Rene Rault-Verpre, 27, appeared in Greymouth District Court this morning charged with wilful damage after his disastrous four-day mission to get out of Punakaiki. Rault-Verpre pleaded guilty to damaging road signs.

He was ordered to surrender his passport as part of his bail conditions and remanded to appear in Christchurch on Friday.

In court, Rault-Verpre said he had spent four days on the side of State highway 6 at Punakaiki and no one had bothered to even offer him water.

Locals contacted police yesterday alleging Rault-Verpre took his frustration out on road signs at Punakaiki.   Read more »

And here was me thinking Maori were the warrior race

Maori have portrayed themselves as the warrior race for many, many years.

But it seems they have become emasculated and become a pathetic girly race of half-people, upset over words and stories told in the wrong way.

A report by Mediaworks presenter Heather du Plessis-Allan that likened Maori sites of cultural significance to “rubbish dumps” has been deemed insensitive.

The item, which appeared on Story which du Plessis-Allan co-hosts with Duncan Garner, looked at how purchasers of Auckland homes near areas of cultural significance may need to get consent from iwi before undertaking structural building work.

During the piece du Plessis-Allan reported from an empty field.

“It’s where back in the old days Maori used to throw the shells when they’d finished eating their seafood. So it’s pretty much a rubbish dump.

“We looked it up – ‘midden’ is an old Danish word for ‘domestic rubbish dump’.”

Following the piece a member of the public, Ross Carter, complained to the Broadcasting Standards Authority (BSA) that it was racist and denigrating of Maori culture.

Crybaby of the Week and the case of the overdue library book

Some parents really don’t deserve the label.

Take this week’s Crybaby of the Week who is moaning because her daughter copped a library fine for an overdue library book.

Children can be liable for overdue library books – something 9-year-old Gabriella Harris found out the hard way.

The Shelly Park Primary School pupil took out a book on horses from Botany Library in East Auckland for a school project, and was hit with a $30 fine when it was returned two months overdue.

Her mother, Rochelle Harris, said she was shocked when told she would have to pay for the tardy return.

“We were in the middle of moving house and Gabriella had packed it away. When we found it we took it back, and they told us ‘Tough luck’.

“We always understood that if the child had the book out on a child’s library card then there wouldn’t be a fine. I was stunned.”

Crybaby apologises, and so should the Herald

Yesterday the NZ Herald ran a crybaby story about some tart who didn’t like her tattoo. They lifted the story out of Facebook.

Fairfax ran a far better story that showed how the Herald’s “shock horror story” had now meant that the tattoo business was receiving death threats and staff were terrified as a result of a social media pile on.

After she posted the photo, hundreds of others sent her messages to her with their own experiences at the studio, she said.

“I never wanted them to get them shut down, it’s the stupidest thing I’ve ever done, but I don’t think putting it on Facebook was wrong because it made all these other people come out of the woodwork.”

Epic Ink tattooist Joel Parkinson said they had fallen victim to an “unfair, one-sided battle” and were were now receiving violent threats.

“We had to take all the equipment home last night, out of the studio. We’ve had violent threats against my father, about breaking limbs. Dad didn’t sleep last night, the family are worried, and my sister left the house and went and stayed somewhere else.

“She doesn’t understand what she has done.”   Read more »

Crybaby of the Week

dud-tattoo

How on earth can the Herald justify pimping this idiot trollop’s story at the expense of the business on the back end of it?

The only thing disgusting in this is the idiot woman’s behaviour and her complete lack of accountability…and her crybaby attitude.

A $400 Cinderella and Snow White tattoo which left the recipient “utterly disgusted and embarrassed” was only partially done, according to the tattoo store.

Christchurch woman Sarah Blackley shared photos online of the tattoo on her left arm. It has black outlines of a Cinderella and Snow White, and black and purple lines.

The Cinderella figure has a black mouth, no eyeballs and is holding a knife, while the Snow White figure also has no eyeballs and a black mouth.

“I recently got this tattoo and I am so utterly disgusted and embarrassed,” Ms Blackley posted on Facebook.

“$400 for what?! I refuse to wear short sleeves… This is on my skin forever.”

Cry Baby of the Week – On a Monday!

SCCZEN_260216NZHJOBLUES27a_480x270

It’s only Monday but this has to be cry baby of the week.

One of two men removed from Eden Park by security after streaking during Friday’s Super Rugby opener between the Blues and Highlanders has laid a complaint against a guard, reports Mediaworks.

The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, was apprehended by three guards and claims he was assaulted by one after he was taken out of public view following his removal from the field.

A police complaint has been filed, as the streaker required several stitches after he claims one of the guards punched him several times.

A spokesman for Eden Park told Mediaworks they would look into the incident, after only being made aware of the complaint today.

“We don’t condone streakers but we certainly don’t condone that sort of behaviour either,” they said.

“We’ve taken this up with Platform 4 Group (the security company) and they will be proceeding with the matter with the staff involved.”

What a complete cry baby.

He gets his kit off, breaks the law, streaks through a rugby game…presumably pissed, no sober person would do that…and he claims he was assaulted?

Plus the gutless little twerp wants to remain anonymous and the equally gutless Herald plays along with it.

Definite Cry Baby of the Week and on a Monday too.

“Cry Baby” Shona Maiden is not a victim – also charged with assault

via 3 News

via 3 News

Two days ago, you may recall, Whaleoil ran a Cry Baby of the Week post about Shona Maiden and her claim she was punched in the mouth for speaking Te Reo.

She ran to the NZ Herald who were very happy to assist her with twisting her sorry story.

At the time, it set off my BS radar and I did some digging.  One of the interesting things is that the number of teeth that came out changed depending on who she talked to.   But I also spoke to some sources closer to the incident.  Late yesterday the rest of the media caught up as the Police released this statement:

Police have investigated an incident that occurred outside the 123 Karaoke bar in Howick on Friday 1 January 2016 and a decision has been made to prosecute a 46-year-old female and a 43-year-old male.

As part of the investigation, police have viewed CCTV footage of the alleged incident.

The version of events given by the 46-year-old female is not substantiated by this footage.

It has been educational to watch commenters on our blog, and even on other pathetic tumbleweed blogs,  go straight for the “Cam Slater is victim blaming” angle without taking any of the known facts into account or doing some of their own investigating.   Read more »

Cry baby of the Week: Shona Maiden

via NZ Herald

via NZ Herald – not beyond using kids for a story

Cry Baby:  

Shona Maiden

The Incident:

Shona Maiden was heading home after celebrating New Year’s Eve with friends at her local bar – 123 Casino Karaoke Bar, in Howick – when she was assaulted, she says.

A police spokeswoman confirmed they are investigating the assault of a woman, aged 46, outside the establishment in the early hours of New Year’s Day.

At the bar’s closing time, Ms Maiden, who is of European and Maori descent, said she said “ka kite ano” (see you later) to people who had been standing outside. The mother-of-four, who lives in Howick, said a man then swore and yelled at her, questioning why a “palagi” would use such words. Read more »
