So does your ASIC card pay it's way ?

Yo...

So, whats your ASIC card good for ?

Last time I showed mine to a Chubb security guard so I could get a gate code, all I got was "gee sorry mate we can't tell that to anyone ....but ask the fuel blokes they'll tell you.."

OK; practical uses to put into the DOTARS ASIC card info sheet:
(i) a nifty little ruler for making lines on flight plans and trim sheets,
(ii) an easy-to-clean spoon for eating tinned fish when you're out for a day,
(iii) actually using it to pop the latches on security gates if you don't have a knife,
(iv) impressing the supermodel at the Post Office when she needs ID for registered mail, while you just casually mention the word "airport".....
(v) getting a discount on chicken rolls at the food places in the terminal,
(vi) a reason to talk to a good looking AFP babe about where you can get your new card holder and strap from ?

????? Yeah alright, who's got any more ? It's got to be good for something.
No you can't mention anything about getting access anywhere, 'cause you may as well be carrying a $5 scratchy card..

Gee 'Whiz',

Imagine NOT being able to get onto the tarmac at "FTZ INTL"................

Let alone getting BACK to your flying machine at BRM.......

But I guess Millajidee would be OK....

hehehe.......they can be a little bit security minded at Noonkanbah too. the bods at Broome wanted to see it a few times, but I think they're bored there. I aint up that way any longer, so its not problem any longer.

20% off coffee at both Terminals in YBCS - the only handy use for an ASIC when you've got a 4am departure....

Of course you would look like a tosser, bright yellow is sooo yesterday, everyone knows that lime green is the 'IN' colour these days, except Queenslanders it seems!

One that might have been missed ... it allows free entry to The Vic in dn ... but stuffed if it'd be coming out with me! chances of falling off a table and losing it are far to great!

Thumbs down

My ASIC has a name printed on it which is spelled similarly to my own.
Close but not quite...
(but for a paltry $145 you can't expect miracles eh? )

*yes for all you security malcontents out there .......I'm in the lengthy/time consuming process of having the card corrected...
