Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
They seem to put lots of cones out, needed or not. I've seen them cone kilometers of Kamo bypass when there was one small truck parked there and one guy working 20m off the road, cutting scrub. I've seen them several times drive down the highway at 20-30 km/h while they are not working, no road works near by, but flashing their lights and collecting kilometer long queues; both north and south of Whangarei. I've seen them putting 3 stop and go guys on an intersection that normally works just fine with 80km/h traffic flowing both ways on the highway, after they had closed the road to single lane, 50km/h, one direction only and the work was under way hundreds of meters away.
