I am in the process of travelling from Sydney to Perth of a business trip. Majority of my time has been spent reading business mags and newspaper.

In reading the long list of earnings announcements, I’d like to make a minor change . To make a translation of a sentence I read a number of times . Wherever it now says:

“we were affected by the global financial crisis and adverse foreign exchange”.

It should actually read:

“we just f#@ked up”.

I’d also like to replace:

“we are refocusing on our core markets” with

“we had our eye totally off the ball and lost a sh#@load of market share”.
