OOPS ….. WE DON’T EXIST
By Roger Moroney
According to the Auckland media, the sharemarket and Michael (that’s not fair) Fay, we don’t exist.
Because we live south of the border … the Bombay Hills border.
Aucklanders believe that time stops at the border, that commerce, sunshine, entertainment and the quest for a few bob ceases to exist when the magical Bombay line is crossed.
Mind you they’ve got a point.
Avarice, street-fighting, changeable weather and the worst driving habits in the world also stop when you cross the border from Auckland and get back into the real world.
You see what talking about Auckland’s done for me?
I’m getting bitchy … just like the yuppies on Gloss, an Auckland product if ever there was.
But today it’s time to welcome our commerce-caring cousins from north of the border, where they’ve torn themselves away from a series of television adverts for everything from bananas to marital aids.
Last year I made the mistake of mentioning that the Auckland side travel to their various photographic engagements by means of a huge privately owned jet.
Well I was wrong and I apologize to the Aucklanders.
They actually travel separately …. in a jet each.
They have a raffle, so I’m told, and the winner gets to take the cheerleaders along in his jet.
He’s also not expected to play when the jet gets to its destination.
“We don’t want to kill the poor sod”, a spokesman told me.
That’s a caring attitude, and you have to admit, these Gucci-clad, Moet and Chandon swigging tourists are a caring group.
