This week's survey 

(These survey questions are sent in by our readers. Please spend a minute to give your answer to this week's survey as one or possibly more of your industry peers thinks this question is important and wishes to see your point of view as well as others in the industry.)  
 

Last week's survey results...
 
  • We operate in several councils. The council rules range from no A-Frames permitted at all (You get asked to remove them) to not permitted in some streets but permitted in others with proper approval and public liability cover. Perhaps there are a couple left that don't worry about A-Frames. 
  • Very strict in our precinct. No A-Frame at all. No window signage for the 2400 high windows and then above that OK but limited colour. No floor signs within 1mtr of window inside if intended to be read from outside. Also no outside signage lights. (Kevin, MMP Dandenong) 
  • Our council (Cassowary Coast Regional Council) would not have a clue! About 15 years ago I sat down with them (Johnstone Shire Council back then) with sign codes I required through the Australian Sign Association and I got no where. The current CCRC does not support local business anyway they just want to rip the residents off with the highest rates in state or even Australia. So I would not give them incentive to add another charge to our local businesses.
  • It doesn't seem to worry our council. No permission required.

(As a publishing practice to protect ourselves from any potential liability, company and individual names that are referred to negatively in any of these comments are removed.

Police Officer Test
How do you tell the difference between an Australian Police Officer, a Canadian Police Officer, an American Police Officer and a Scottish police officer?
The answer is found below. I just know this question has been on your minds for years!  
 
QUESTION:
You're a policeman, on duty by yourself. You are walking on a deserted street late at night.
Suddenly, an armed man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you and screaming something that sounds like obscenities, raises the knife and lunges at you.
 
You are carrying your truncheon and are an expert in using it. However, you have only a split second to react before he reaches you. What do you do?
 
ANSWER:
Australian Police  Officer:
Firstly, the Officer must consider the man's human rights.
1) Does the man look poor and/or oppressed?
2) Is he newly arrived in this country and does not yet understand the law?
3) Is this really a knife or a ceremonial dagger?
4) Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?
5) Am I dressed provocatively?
6) Could I run away?
7) Could I possibly swing my truncheon and knock the knife out of his hand?
8) Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong-doings?
9)  Why am I carrying a truncheon anyway and what kind of message does this send to society?
10) Does he definitely want to kill me or would he be content just to wound me?
11) If I were to grab his knees and hold on, would he still want to stab and kill me?
12) If I raise my truncheon and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself? 
13) If I hurt him and lose the subsequent court case, does he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my family home?
 
Canadian Police  Officer:
BANG !
 
American Police  Officer:
  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG !  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG  !
'Click'...Reload...
BANG ! BANG ! BANG !  BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG ! BANG  !
 
Glasgow Police  Officer:
  "Haw, Jimmie....! Drop the wee knifie reet this minute noo, unless ye want it stuck up yer arse!"
