The Italian connection

Fremantlians, I hope you're sitting down. For I have some rather shocking news, straight from the windblown slopes of Beaconsfield.

Viz: Romano's deli now has a ticket machine at its counter to regulate the queue.

Imagine how impressed I was on Sunday when, waddling in for my three slices of Porchetta and small tub of pickled capsicum, I noticed this startling innovation.

Imagine too, how relieved I felt when one of the local nonnas breezed past the machine and, ticketless, stepped to the counter to get served before me.

Reverse racism and reverse ageism in one - and oh, so very Freo.
