    Yep, I can imagine it would have been the sort of bloke that would be ‘fixing his truck’. Certainly doesn’t sound like anybody that would move in our circle of friends

      A diesel freak. More Wayne’s type I imagine.

      How very mean-spirited, KB. Be ashamed.

      I would be honoured to have such a good bloke as a friend, truckie or not.

        Dunno about the Barbie dolls though. What are your thoughts on that one? Could be tricky.

          It could well be that the truckie thought Barbie when he thought of dolls. It would be a kind thought, and someone would tell him if these were the wrong dolls for children of that age.

          Barbies are not my favourite dolls, but I don’t credit them with the powers that some people seem to-anyone who thinks that a doll can influence someone’s life and thinking to the extent that these dolls supposedly can must have a poor opinion of the girls who own them.

    Crikey. A truckie acting like father Xmas. Good on him. That’s what NZ is renowned for. But would he help out a hard up Maori family? To add injury to mock insult , I see we are wasting 500 grand finding out whydudes down South roll yer Rrrrrs. Apparently the guy doing the study said multiculturalism is slowly changing that. There we go, Pete. Your cultural heritage and turanagawaewae is under threat. Jeepers, come to think of it, my heritage too…I’m a quarter Scottish.

        fail to see why anyone needs 1/2 million to find out why southerners roll their r’s though.Worse waste than hip hop tours.

    Cute. Perhaps he should have just wandered down the road, put a ‘smile on his dial’, and introduced himself. I know how awkward I feel, when I have to introduce myself to new neighbours, but one just has to get over it. Somebody has to ‘break the ice’, and the unwritten rule is that those who were there first should do it.
