Dr. Dr. Help Me. My Brane Hurts.
"It’s difficult to understand how a tacit agreement to keep prices high within Australia would revive their fortunes."
After seeing what a bunch of underhanded, weak minded "fundamentally stupid people" my local "chamber of commerce" is composed of, the old "Shop Local" mantra has worn thin...
A few of them will lie to your face, most of them back stab at every opportunity, some of them try to rip you off if they think you are not wise to them, and when one of them gets caught out giving lousy service or trying to bullshit their way into or out of something, they all band together to cover up for each other.... and then they get together at the monthly meetings to piss and moan that many people choose to shop elsewhere.
Awwwwwwwww Tsk, Tsk, Tsk..... Aren't they just so hard done by.
LOL- The Chamber of Commerce - stand up, yank the chain and walk out the door.
The NARTA members engaging in price rigging?

Scam me? = Deal Breaker.
