First don't they think people would have thought something smelt fishy:wink: Secondly I am surprised that cases like this don't end up with their visas being revoked:no: THREE European backpackers with champagne tastes have been caught shoving seafood down their pants in a supermarket deli. The German and French nationals, who faced Maroochydore Magistrates Court in Queensland, will be eating "only pasta" after vowing not to steal any more food during their trip Down Under. The trio were arrested on Monday when they were sprung sticking mussels, prawns and other gourmet foodstuffs down their shorts. German tourist Jan Schieck, 20, pleaded guilty to stealing $6.60 worth of mussels from the Woolworths deli about 2pm on Monday. "He placed the item down the front of his pants and left the store without paying," police prosecutor Rick Pallister told the court. "(When questioned) he said they were too expensive." Duty lawyer David Kolbe said his client could pay the $6.60 restitution sought by Woolworths as his client had $200 with him yesterday. Schieck's French travelling buddies, both 22, also pleaded guilty to stealing prawns, gourmet cheese, chocolate, iced coffee and hazelnut spread. Mats David Gabillard was ordered to pay $5.20 for the prawns he smuggled out of the store, along with a chocolate bar. Maxime David Minier was more "Dare-ing", stealing a bottle of iced-coffee, two jars of Nutella and Italian cheese. He was ordered to pay $18. All three escaped further punishment. Outside court the trio, here on tourist and working visas, said they had learnt from a night in the lock-up. "It was very boring. We spent 20 hours and there was nothing to do instead of sleeping," Schieck said. "It was a good experience. Now I think we'll stop the shoplifting." The men admitted Monday's incident had not been their first attempt at a five-finger discount and that they could have afforded the items. "We were really hungry you know, we were just stupid and we didn't want to pay - that was the reason," Schieck said. "We just wanted to cook something. We just thought, yeah, we'll spend a little bit less money (and steal the items). "From now on we'll eat pasta again. Only pasta, nothing else." They also said they hoped to find work in the Brisbane area to finance the rest of their trip.
MARYROSE02 posted a topic in Chewing the fatI 'only' had four schooners too, mixture of Crown Lager, Coopers Pale Ale & Heineken. Glad now that I had to leave most of the last one and double glad I did not stop at the Strawberry Hills as I was walking home.. Strange how the little irritations change into 'Capital' offences when you are feeling 'fragile'. That bloke revving his motorbike up for instance and the ones above me playing drum & bass or something equally vile. I wanted to declare the square kilometre around my unit a noise-free zone. Feel slightly better now I've had what Les Norton calls a 'beer dump'. To think I used to be able to do this for 14 nights solid in Benidorm when I was a youngster! And my bloody friend, who caused me all the shame of being 'asked to leave' the Woolahra, would have been up for work as usual, half a day before me!
I gave a woman a lift home from the beach and she invited me in for a cup of tea. As soon as I saw the kitty litter tray on the balcony - UGH! It turned my stomach. Then she went into paroxyms of passion and pleasure when she saw her cat - which to me looked about as attractive and BIGGER and HAIRIER as Dangerous Davies' dog. I didn't want my tea, just wanted to get the **** out.
