SAD BUT SO VERY TRUE ...

Paul from Pukete

SAD BUT SO VERY TRUE .....
After dinner a teacher started checking homework done by her students. Her husband is strolling around with a smart phone playing his favorite game ‘Candy Crush Saga’.
When reading the last homework notes, the wife starts crying with silent tears....

Her husband saw this and asked, ‘Why are you crying dear? What happened?’

Wife: ‘Yesterday I gave homework to my 1st Standard students, to write something on the topic ... 'MY WISH ’

Husband: ‘OK, but why are you crying?’

Wife: ‘Today while checking the last notes, it made me cry.’

Husband curiously: ‘What’s written in the notes that makes you cry?’

Wife: LISTEN......

My wish is to become a smart phone.

My parents love their smart phone very much.

They care about their smart phone so much that sometimes they forget to care for me.

When my father comes from the office tired, he has time for his smart phone but not for me.

When my parents are doing some important work and smart phone is ringing, within single ring they attend the phone, but not to me...

even if I am crying.

They play games on their smart phones not with me.

When they are talking to someone on their smart phone, they never listen to me even if I am telling them something important.

So, MY WISH is to become a smart phone.

After listening to the note my husband got emotional and asked the wife, ‘Who wrote this??’.

Wife: ‘OUR SON ’......

Gadgets are beneficial, but they are for our ease not to cease the love amongst family and loved ones.

Children see and feel everything what happens with & around them. Things get imprinted on their mind with an everlasting effect. Let’s take due care, so that they do not grow with any false impressions...

Do police need to tighten the Auckland-Waikato border case cases rise?

Todd Niall Reporter from Community News

Kia ora neighbours, With Covid-19 daily cases in Auckland forecast to double, police won't say whether boundary controls have tightened since rural locals reported higher volumes of traffic on cross-boundary back roads. Read the story below:

damned if they do and damned if they don't.

I have sat back and watched everyone rant about yesterday's NZ Government announcement regarding mandatory Covid-19 vaccinations for all adults working in the education section, early childhood education sector and healthcare and can't believe the language some are using and the abuse being levelled.
The Government has not taken your rights away to decide if you are vaccinated or not. You still have that CHOICE. What they have done is say if you work in these JOBS (education, early childhood centres, the health sector) you need to be vaccinated as you are working with a group of people in NZ who due to their age are not able to have the vaccination or are vulnerable due to ill health or old age.
They are trying to protect our children and elderly and the vulnerable.

If you don't want to have the vaccinations great that is your CHOICE. You aren't going to jail for it. You have the freedom to make that CHOICE What is affected is your ability to work in your CHOOSEN job. So CHOOSE not to have a vaccination and look for a job in another industry. It is your CHOICE.

We teach our children that CHOICES and ACTIONS have consequences but as soon as something like this happens I have been shocked at the number of adults throwing temper tantrums about “it’s not fair”.

I am not sure why everyone feels the need to abuse the government on Facebook when all they are trying to do is protect the majority of NZ.

Would you rather they sat back open the borders completely, remove all restrictions and watch NZers get sick and you not be able to access medical services for any illness apart from Covid because the hospitals and doctors are overrun.

The Government is damned if they do and damned if they don't.

The opposition are in favour of opening the country up and removing all restrictions. I respect your choice not to get the vaccine, I don't respect your choice to be on Facebook and throw abuse at a group of people trying to do their best in a situation we have not had to face previously.
