MISFORTUNE COMING MY WAY COURTESY OF THE DINGO

A strange thing happened on the way to the office this morning, HA, this sounds like the start of a crappy novel "It was a cold and windswept evening" but I digress, so I'm driving along when suddenly a dingo bolts out fo the bush and tries to attack my car, as I pass it drops in behind my vehicle and continues chasing me down the road. It was a tad surreal, I'd expect a dog to chase my car in the burbs, but a dingo in the bush? Dingo's are notoriously shy animals so this was way out of character. Eventually it gave up and headed back into the bush.
.
I've only ever had one other similar encounter with a dingo, seen a fair few, but they are usually heading in the other direction, swiftly. On this other occasion I learned from the Aboriginal guys with us that when a dingo follows you like that it's a bad omen.
.
Ahhh jeez, just what I need.

dunno man, but it happened to us a few times out at Packsaddle . mind you..all kinds of things went wrong with that project so maybe that isnt as reassuring as i thought P)

out west angelas way i know its bad luck if you kill one (how that squares with the number of doggers in the population i dont know).

guess no gambling for money for you in the near future huh?

Yeah Maja, it was a tad, second time I've seen it so maybe they do it a lot and we just don't notice haha

Reb I think you may be onto something there. I bought two scratchies this morning, both failed, so hopefully I've sorted that out
