I don't want to make every same a joke because they're not funny but you sound so wow
what what what its gonna do
what is going on?
Well the last time we spoke on Friday I think that I was sort of saying that I was getting a bit of a man flow yeah and I think this is page man flu right now
this is unbelievable. You see I said before you sound like you're two years old it's this
weed it'll it'll Seth
it's amazing yeah
I want you to say me You can testify that is in fact I actually sound like there's a comedian I don't know his name but he's got a podcast called the little dumb dumb club I actually just sound like him which is really strange anyway
I'm currently in Paris yeah what's been what's been going on
it's it's we do I'm doing the morning shift 6am just got my coffee nearly I just avoided a massive queue tried he's just trying to punch out there dollar coffees and I got in good but my fact last night I am this this is the kind of shit that he he happening in parents and the guy you don't even like I don't think when you when you not apparent you'd be like oh that sounds ridiculous and it wouldn't even enter your mind this kind of shit happens but last night I was sitting on the couch and Bodie is now saying up and he wants the way whenever he wants to get out he's when he's when he will come up with you when he wants to get to something a bit higher as well and you decide up so you can get up to press something press the marker I've button but last night he said he said up and I was lying on the catch a sort of sitting on the couch on my legs kind of open and he kind of ran into the middle you know ran into my legs so he's in he's in my crotch and he said up and he sort of like put his face flat down onto my crotch and then I started to pull him up and Amy is over in the kitchen and all she hears is may yell yeah
bit my dick
oh my god like and the worst thing was I pulled I pulled him up so quickly and he said I had pants on by the way I wasn't known and I sat him down and he was just he looks so Skaggs I yelled so loudly hurts so much anyway amen looks over. She's going she's going on and he's just looking at me crying and I'm
at that moment the painted subsided and I was feeling so bad but dude he he beat me dig and I've got a Mac he got his journal he goes top to top he's got like can openers and he does nipped it oh my god
is trying to tell
it was horrible I think you did the right thing I think
screaming like you need to you need to express how shocking that is right
oh made now and I didn't care you I not bought him a dig
alongside so what but what did you do from there Can you can you communicate to a nearly two year old
now i mean i just i said sorry cuz I felt bad he looks he was so scared of
hey buddy you're you're apologizing to what sort of hell factor is parenting
Paula guys so scared What did he say what was Amy's view on the whole thing oh she was
us now she's kind of she was she was more concerned of how what I said like because I reacted so I didn't I I didn't even do you know what happened didn't happen so quickly all I could say was you little
do you worry now that like this is now that he got a rise out of you that he knows that this is a thing are you gonna get like reports harm from daycare saying that he's become the dictator in the group
and now I mean he he bites of the keys is actually quite gentle. He just does this thing when he lie when he sort of he runs at you and he falls into you and he just nips your clothes and so he just thought he just thought he was doing that but it was in the wrong wrong place and I came off of legitimately go to mock it's like it almost drew blood it's it's full on never thought this would be happening to me this shit like you don't even think about my kids get a bot My Geek what the fire
Absolutely not. And I never thought that episode 150 I would sound the way that I sound and you'd be telling that story to start up congratulations by the way Episode Episode 150 it feel yeah we've
made it you I mean for people that no one no one else is here it's just me but I can see you look like you're in some like princes lead. You've got like a gold
places you see mirror.
Yeah, it's literally just like a techie cold frame. But ya know where we're in Paris. But the funny thing is, we've caught up with friends for the next one week. And we caught up with them just for dinner just now. And I was adamant to sort of act cool. As if I wasn't sick. Because I feel like the most annoying thing would be especially because they're only away for say four weeks. So I don't want to fuck their trip. So I was just like playing a Dan I'm like, Oh yeah, man. I am. Had the icon on last night. I slept with the air con. I just woke up like this. I think. Um, I think it seems a bit worse than that. What do you think
are? I don't know. I think you're going to so I think you sound better tomorrow. It's it's the end of the day for you. So you've been awful die. You probably you throats tired. You've been you've probably I mean. Yeah, it's just the end of that. You need to have a sleep and hopefully you feel better tomorrow. Do you actually feel horrible or not? Yeah,
no, I do. But I'm trying to complain less because Bree actually had like this sort of sickness when we were touring Auschwitz last week and I just I don't I'm not
I'm not as in tune with that stuff like I forget it takes me to be in the situation for me to them gain the empathy so I feel like I wish in some I wish that it happened the other way around that I was sick first so I could understand how she sure was to then build up the empathy to them look after her because she's been like a champion and being like super nice but I feel like I was a little bit like are you going to be okay like I'm I think you just my solution to everything is I think you haven't turned it off otter which is sort of a really frustrating thing cuz she was drinking so much water a nice piece all the time and I'm like I think it's just it's just too so
the end of the weekend here Amy and I lucked out and we we were looking on Saturday to go and do yoga just very
quickly about lucked out I'm confused with lucked out who's going to bring it up another day but is lucked out mean you got lucky or that you
yeah true true lucked out in in the why I'm using it is like we got lucky. You can say we got lucky we lucked out. He's that
the official but I feel like we can use it either way. Right. But like I feel like people use it.
I don't I have never heard anyone say in reference to not having any more luck. Like you've we've run out of luck. Okay we lucked out with
Yeah, you're correct. I've just looked it up. This can be a word of the day
even though it's more of a phrase lucked out to like it out to experience. great luck to be extremely fortunate. Lucky. So there you go. So you
Tom, it's not Yeah. So we told you. We were looking on said I have a walk away and do what can we do with Bodie? Where can we take him? Is there anything I started looking up you know, family to receive contractions. Fact May. I was looking at bas couple of years ago
I'm looking at where we can go so I landed on I found this place called fairy Park and it was like it's so bizarre it's this place in just outside of July and it's this week it would be like if some eccentric dude who loved sort of like make believe world had a property in built this thing called fairy Park
Jackson is probably like it's bizarre anyway I didn't end up going there but I I'll get to that a bit later I went down this rabbit hole of reading reviews on TripAdvisor about this park that's another story but so what we decided to do was to go to Sky High in Danny know which is a look at that just looks back toward Melbourne. Oh no. Sorry. Sorry
you gotta stop fucking confusing people. So for instance, national listeners. This happened to people I know who came from Europe to Australia on a business trip and I am an only met them while I was at while they are in Australia so I couldn't help them it was after they did this that they told me but there's a big difference between the dandy knowns and dandy known tanti known in Australia. I grew up knee there so I can say this. It's a beer. If I can dingy, it's like you don't want to go past gestation. And the dandy dongs is this beautiful fucking like a forest where you've got this amazing view so these poor people from Europe had come to Melbourne and ended up at fucking dead on station trying to find out where the viewpoint is probably speaking to some dandy known is the area in which Nicole who we had on did his first it That's right right that gives you a pain that paints a picture of the sort of you know the world that dandy donkeys so go on So you went to the Daniels
and we went to the Danny the dandy nouns which are the season Linda so Tina different sub not even it's not even Daniel thank you thank you for correcting me that so yeah we went up there and it like you could see the storm clouds where we were when we were driving from incubators is bit called those simply sky but you could see these like rolling just storm clouds brewing towards where we're going and so we're driving towards the storm we drove party parents place on North Road Josh just yeah we should have went up the back way through Belgrave and it's I mean it's only about 40 minutes from sea level and so you bet you start going up into the up into the mountain so it gets nice and cold and it was it was really chilly and we got up to to right near sky high which you pay seven bucks to get into mind you I was always I was looking
and sky high also has the the big chairs who don't have a few yeah try
pay seven bucks to get in. Which was one of the things that I I didn't go to ferry Park because it was I think it's $16 to get in each and. And it Yeah. Anyway, it looks terrible. But I'm just kind of pay for
their century. Well, I don't know if next century guy actually owns it.
I've painted the basis. I got wrong with this. Or anyway. So we roll up and it it basically started snowing at Scott and this is not like we're not we're not at the snow. We're not at the mountains. Where does this and so we lock that in terms of it started writing and the rain. It wasn't it was like sleet. But it blanketed Holland. So it looked like this it looks like we were at the snow and the end the ground was washed. And it was just it was unbelievable. And the reason I say that like that because I'd always heard of it snowing in these areas. Right. But it's very it's like rare. Yeah. And it would be timing and you just need a bait and I always thought okay, as soon as I hear it's going to be snowing out. Now. I'm going to go up like when it's getting really call and it's going to Ryan so we got out. It was unbelievable. It was like you could see the storm the cloud rolling in. And then it just started like slate and it was amazing. And so we're so slate
is sleep like is this essentially hail?
Yeah. Yes. define it hail but it like I was out in it. And I had my jacket on and and you how they got wet. Because it was all frozen hitting the ground. And it was so so intense. And so quick. And if you you if you're from a country where it snows just in winter, you probably think this is a dumb story. But it's very novel here. And so. But here's the thing. I was the one excited about it. I was the only one to go out of the car boat. He was asleep. And it was just too cold.
I was out playing playing in the slate by myself.
I was so happy when I saw the Insta stories because we had a chat during the week where you're talking about. Yeah. And in fact, all on the weekend type of thing. Was this sort of an active effort to get out and about, have you had any sort of reflections on you know, like, was it worth I differentiate, I think
the thing with having a kid is it's on the weekend it can go very quickly because you just you sort of looking after the baby putting him to bed and you just, you know, fading them and just and it just goes you just try and almost kill the time and it's a lot of effort to get out of the house. It sounds sounds like a bad excuse. But it is It's so tiring
road trips I guess a good in the sense of if you like get them in the car and then you just then you drive it like a road trips. A good thing to do with as parents or is it depends
he's really good in the car. We just check on the week he loves the wheel Yeah.
Why can't fucking
and then we went after we went. We went to
he was in a Ned Kelly. Remember Ned Kelly? The
what? How would you
say yeah, this is the thing right so we've got international listeners This is almost going into the territory of when the the person in in Krakoff asked me what the tallest mountain in Australia was. Which is cozy Oscar I'm never gonna forget the way I'm remembering that by the way he's I'm thinking cozy as invaders I don't know why but anyway but he was a Ned Kelly was a ranger who had some like fucking team thing on he was a bad guy shot cops and stuff and he was was he he was hung in Pinterest
yeah although he was an ad like an Australian bush Ranger how gang leader and convicted police murderer so I mean he's painted painted as you
can you try and sound a little bit more authentic when you're just reading during
one of the last blush ranges and by far the most famous he's best known for wearing a suit of armor that's Ned Kelly Josh yeah
yeah he said I wonder where is that team of people can look it up themselves but I think it's on
Saturday all male and job the dude thought you is fucking Iron Man okay built some crazy like body suit armor. But it all ended up bad for him in any any got hung. But anyway, that thing
and I just worked out that's another word of the day. The the past tense if you've been if you hang
up because he's already he's he's doing Yeah. Any
you don't say hung. I don't know why
he died at 25. That's the weirdest thing like these people in history. Just side note, these people in history that were like monumental figures. They like that so young. And I was
he had such a big be me or my think you have some. So he was essentially done a full circle like he's the epitome of a barista hipster. barista. He's in college. Jason Fox,
Dr. Jason Fox, we had on the paga
Ned Kelly vibe that is, so
he does have that sort of, maybe that could be Jason doesn't a word every year or an archetype every year that he sort of that helps him guide how he's gonna pay throughout the year. I wonder if Nick being Ned Kelly is has some some form of good qualities. I guess. Just getting out there. Yeah.
Done. I mean, potentially good qualities. I'm just looking here at the Wikipedia it says convictions. Murder, assault, fifth armed robbery,
it was a wild motherfucker. And anyway, it's actually good looking Rooster and in up in. The reason I bring up Ned is because there's a there's a place called Kelly's at just Rodney. sky high. It's like this pub. I mean, I have done a similar trip up there before. And this was, I think, last year grand final day. I mean, I just went with Bodie. Me. Yeah, we went to go on lunch at this place called Kelly's. And it's so funny like this place. Kelly's was last time we had this bad experience too and it's funny like how you somehow convince yourself that it's good to go back to a place that you had a bad experience and it's like yeah oh just go there I don't know like I think what we like about it is there's it's like an old like wood cabin style pub and so there's actually section where there's like this nice fireplace and it feels like you're in the log cabin is like exposed Long's on the wall. And it Yes, we should go. We'll do a little road trip with the with the the wives will go up there. Anyway, it's need Kelly's sister. She lived there. And there's an insert I've kept like the area that it was an extended out to the side. But they say that Ned Kelly actually visited that place. And, and he Yeah, so he says to live there. Anyway. So we went back there. And we had another band experience from the moment we walked in. But, um, so what happened? It's one of the things that I I don't know if I own the restaurant, I would be fucking row bubble. If my staff did this. And it's when you say it was five? It was.
Could you imagine having a restaurant just quickly what a cluster fuck that would be. It's just dealing with people. And we don't have any staff. Just remember. I feel like that was a big thing with them. Ma Tommy with his cafe. Just trying to get like, stuff that a good and shit like, that sounds like.
And so my thing is when you go to Okay, so with 510 when we walked in the door, and that's kind of early for dinner. There was no one in the restaurant. There's one elderly couple by the fire. I thought you pricks. You got the fire spot. Fuck you. But you can have it. You probably are new. I am anyway.
Yeah. That's been there for 30 years. That just happened. The services so bad. No one. They haven't gotten the bill. Yeah. And just whining.
And so we walked in. And the front of house this young lady. She said, oh, we're full.
fully booked. We're fully booked. I just looked at it.
It was one of those moments where I was just like, Fuck, what time are bookings? And she got all are they from from six will perfect will be done by then. She said, Oh, yeah, sure. But it's like she was about to knock ass back. And she didn't like what do you think? Well, we had a we had Bodie with us. So maybe we can get
it's not like there's a huge amount of options
again. Yeah, we don't want to be there for two hours. And so it's it anyway. So she, she ended up saying, Oh, okay. But we had to push it actually get a seat. And so she was a bit standoffish. And then she lightened up and she was absolutely lovely. And she was like, giving body special attention by the bitter bitter to know I'm Jackie.
But then she started letting all these other people in after us. It was like she had this moment, which is a fact I can, sir, I can see people up until the time that the table then gets occupied. Who would have known and so
it's so funny. You mentioned that story. Cuz Bray had a situation a couple of days ago where she went in to a Mani pedi place in Poland. And there was no one in the shop and Bray asked if she could get a pedicure at the light. He said that they were fully booked. Not a single person.
Amen. Praise, just giving commentary. Now, she said she was just the lady was on her face.
This mentioned how much money has been lost across the world in restaurants that people have done this. Yeah, I think it could be young staff. Because when we walked in last time into the same Kelly's plays, the woman said to us, we said, Oh, we just wanted to grab some lunch. He's like, the kitchens closing in 10 as like, just, it was like, meaning, get the fuck out. We don't want to help you. And it was like, Well,
if you're the funny thing is, is it's like, it seems really bad. But after you've been to Italy, like your perspective, changes on what's fact. Because those those guys it's like, you know, a 10 to three. And it's like, oh, no, we can't serve. Like, it was so difficult because I like having two meals a day having the first meal around 10 second meal around 330. And it just didn't work out in Italy. Like we ended up just fucking carb loading and eating so much. Because the Yeah, they just they have all of their their naps and shit for the what's I caught. See today. Ces
was there for a month. I should know. Yeah. But they they would. Yeah, that would have those big sort of closing times. So I feel like this is less less bad then. Yeah, Italy?
Yeah. Well, the first time we went to the Kelly's, but I had to push her as well as well if we put through another now. Will that be okay because the bow wasn't the place wasn't closing it was just the kitchen and sounds like anyway, I would go back there. It's this weird thing where it's like a like the venue enough No,
I yeah, I'm very much like when I've had a bad experience. I just taught them off and some way around a Linder actually. Oh, I don't know if it's a Linda it's um the picture which is just is the thousand steps which you you've made a video on they forgot my eggs once and I was eating my meal and I realized at the end and when I said to them I'd gotten aside of sausage I was doing keto at the time aside a sausage and at the end of the meals like are like my mate was like are you don't have your eggs and so I I was waiting to get their attention but kept eating at the same time finished my meal I said are you the meal came with eggs it wasn't even that on I said look just just take off the the sausage that I don't so he just like our sorry we can't do that because we'll have to bring you out the eggs that's what we can do. So he brought me a fucking mug with poached eggs and a spoon and I the fucking poached eggs like some sort of baby that's hilarious It was so I'm just never and then we heard behind us there were people who had a $100 voucher for this place they were having breakfast their their bill came to like $50 and they were told that they had to use the entire voucher then in there so that just spin 50 fucking dollars we read
the fact that people yeah
yeah that that's that's enough to not go back but we should go back to that place Kelly's and then do with a third review see if there's if we have a bad I mean yeah this is the thing you go back into these places if you've ever had a bad experience and then you really conscious you looking for any moment where they just you fact out you know
well just imagine how I felt after giving the lady at the hotel Nikko review and then having to stay there for today I was fucking turning around looking around any opportunity I'm what she's going to steal our identity we need to take our passports everywhere I need to check out credit cards and was it was so I'll tell you about this the review rabbit hole that I went on because I did think of you because I
personally I haven't ever left a review on any one of these you know TripAdvisor is platforms to be clear you leave one you've you've left enough to be the review guy so out of you and I you know there you go but that fairy fairy Park it's an unbelievable because what I like to do is the TripAdvisor breaks it down and there's like you know how they've got like you know amazing like average or good and so they break into sections and you can see how many pages yeah Paul terrible and then you can see how many comments or how many reviews have been left in that section then you can click on to it and it breaks it down to see just that section so I clicked on to the the one style if you will but they call it terrible that's the actually that you stop and applause anyway this one is creepy disturbing relic from another era and what the hell and so I'll just read excuse quickly just read and
I visited fairy park with grandchildren and ended up feeling that I'd subjected them to an extremely damaging experience the majority of characters as supersized and with grotesque hideous faces and expressions the play equipment is incredibly old and outdated and certainly doesn't look like it would comply with 2015 safety requirements overall a horrible day and the kids degrade
which is a grade was fighting saying
what blew my mind was the responses from fairy park so they and and it's funny it's one of those things like that you know I've spoke about is you know responding to only negative feedback and not like saying you know thanks so much for the amazing review it's like they've gone through and responded to all of the really bad reviews and so
let me just read the response wall we hate reading reviews like this because we obviously want people to have an adventurous fun family day at we've never heard of our beautiful characters having grown tix grotesque faces before however everyone is entitled to their own opinion thankfully most people love their day here and take away happy memories is this place they don't feel like dive in quotation marks been subjected to an extremely damaging experience price playground does comply with safety standards we take responsibility series Thank you for taking the time to review now I will decide that is that doesn't highlight what I wanted to point out here because that's but yeah
a for and what I've noticed an extremely damaging experience I want an extremely damaging experience try a poached eggs on the mug.
That's what I
noticed though is these the the massive denial like the accusations that have been put out like I was reading through and so a lot of them are just coming back with like it's like that woman denied the experience of that hotel was anything like you would say it's if we'd tactic of actually just get inside
a fake news, it's a
sandpit I don't think it's the best approach or I can that that let me that response was actually quite great but all the others to them alike we we highly highly you know contradict what you were saying like they fully just going what you were saying is wrong or that's not true it's such a weird way to respond to these things it'd be like if i
mean i think it says a lot about those people right like if that's the if that's how they respond to reviews in saying that we are lucky that we plan yeah the bass bass so we have you know, we deal with you 2030 clients a year and it's all business to business we don't deal with crazy consume it like imagine the sorts of crazies that you'd get at restaurants at parks or that sort of thing as well and and
not everyone's a bit tweaked being at the ferry part anyway the on age if kids just be a dick and they fucking
looking for anything to just get fucking hyped up about and
I mean, if you are going if you're spending your weekend at the ferry Park, you probably a little bit more sort of inclined to leave a negative review even if you have a good experience. So
I know you know what, though, I actually want to go because I want to save it leaves up to the negative reviews but
maybe we could do a whole whole pace Well, you know, I've spoken about the idea I've had for a while which is doing a video series on one star reviews where we basically take the one star review speak to the person who gave the review, speak to the arena maybe do like a catfish esque meetup where they are, they meet each other
and we made them before we make the meeting the Princess Princess as Hades at the top of the top of the fun Park and then I have to ride the desk.
It's a daily talk show everyone you know, this is Episode 150 a milestone and I would just like to thank everyone who has sent in emails we've had some reviews of later well through podcasts or iTunes thank you for that. And yeah, we've enjoyed I still say you know we get a few hundred listeners every single episode you know, 10,000 downloads we did last month and it just keeps growing so it's exciting to think that the people who are listening now I can be of that sort of hardcore group that in five years time we'll be looking back at me like then those were good time
yeah it's I mean that that reality of me getting a tattoo because we've got to the thousand Episode Episode is is feeling like it could become reality.
Yeah. Hundred percent. I found I've been going down sort of an astrologer
tunnel or rabbit hole and looking at podcast I used to listen to years and years and years ago, and you say that they're up to Episode 3000. Oh, wow. I I can definitely see us going on well and beyond 1000 episodes. So thank you to everyone for listening. I'm in Paris. Tomorrow I'll be heading to the south of France. So we'll be picking it up there. But otherwise, have a good Monday and we'll see tomorrow you
