"The same country that gives sex lessons to miners..."
Surely if they are old enough to work in the mines, they shouldn't need sex lessons. Or are Aussie mine workers lacking in nookie related didactic dilligence?

You want some of this?
What is it?
How do you eat that?
First you cut off the head and the tail.
Then you gut it.
It's all a matter of the sauce.
You don't just plop down warm rodent on a plate and say:
''Here's your river rat. Would you like white or red wine?''
I worked for a brief time at a call center in California for what was then Cellular One, later to be bought out by AT&T. Our call center was posh. Our bosses treated us like kings and queens because they realized we were what all the marketing in the world couldn't be...the company's REAL identity to a customer. So whenever a caller would start in on us we had a standard, company backed policy: 'Sir/Madam, if you continue to verbally abuse me that way I will hang up'. We'd repeat it once and if the caller continued their abuse we would terminate the call, comment the account and the next time they called in there would be a nice big note saying 'Caller is abusive. Escalate to management.' One time during a side by side with my supervisor, a caller started in on me. My SUPE was the one who discontinued the call. Now that's empowerment :)
Rufus, it's not your fault...you just need a policy that management supports allowing you to be rude. Just don't do it on your own. :P
