Alert! Alert!

I was in the Melbourne Central food court yesterday at lunchtime, pondering food court etiquette. The cleaners there seem to be very quick in leaping into action to clear and wipe tables. So should I take my tray away myself? Perhaps. Perhaps not.

They also seemed to be equipped with radios. Very handy, cleaners having two way radios. You can imagine the messages they get.

"Attention all cleaning operatives! Table 43A is sticky!"

"Alert! Alert! Vomit emergency in sector 12!"

I walked back through Chinatown. Number 146 Little Bourke Street is undergoing renovations, getting fitted out. A sign in the window proclaimed "Coming soon: Asian restaurant!"

NO! WOW! INCREDIBLE! Jeez, there aren’t any of them around Chinatown!… they could corner the market!
