Whingers of the week: A rat named Erroll
It’s not often that I come across a single social media whinge that is so odd that it gets its own Whingers of the Week entry. I found one.
Virginia (known as ‘Ginny’ according to her Facebook profile) posted the following complaint on the Qantas Facebook page. If the complaint itself doesn’t get you laughing, some of the comments from Facebook users will…
I don’t know about you, but when I travel with my pet rat I make sure it travels in style in my Louis Vuitton pet carrier. I wouldn’t want the poor dear to travel in steerage with the bags now would I?
