If a kid rode their bike over it or something accidental I wouldn't have minded but the guy literally stopped as he was going past, looked at the plant then decided to stomp on it. So moronic and pointless.

Was it Apex gang related? Seems to be flavour of the month for news media & pollies alike.

The sign on the cafe shop front says ALL Funko Pop! Vinyl reduced to $15 each.

So I drop in this cafe & pick up the Pop! Vinyl Sesame Street Big Bird from the shop front glass window, take it to the cashier & introduce myself. After a bit of small talk, including mentioning I was an out of towner, the cafe owner tells me it's 25 bucks.

I pointed at the sign on the shop front glass window with emphasis on the word ALL. "Doesn't apply to larger ones" the cafe owner insists. "They're all 15 bucks each ... (pause) ... just not the one you want".

Here's the kicker. I've wasted his time by being in the cafe & having the nerve to leave empty handed, no food or drink either.

Serves you right for trying to buy a Pop Vinyl.
