Send-A-Slab to say thanks!

(2 votes)

In an extremely stressful industry dominated by males, saying sorry or expressing gratitude with a gift is not common practice. Those in the mining industry have all made blunders and have all exceeded expectations at some point in time with little or no recognition, but that may be about to change.

Send A Slab knows the way to a mate’s heart is through beer. The new business venture makes it very easy to send a case of beer to a colleague or boss to say thanks. Or sorry for a blunder, if necessary. Whether it’s a mate’s birthday, a family barbeque or a Christmas gift, sending a slab of beer just got easier.

Send A Slab beer gifting service allows you to purchase and send a case of beer online to a friend anywhere in Australia. The process is as simple as choosing a beer and choosing a mate. It will then be delivered to their door within 2-5 days by Australia Post.

Shayne Tilley, creator of Send A Slab says “Men often have trouble finding the right way to say ‘thanks’ to a mate, or to ‘shout’ a beer to a friend who may be living in the country or in a different state – a problem we’ve now solved with Send A Slab.” He adds “There is no doubt that the site has a definite male, or ‘blokey’ feel about it.”

The Sandringham, Victoria based company offers cases of beer in three varieties suggesting what type of person the recipient is, either an ‘average bloke’, a ‘good bloke’ or a ‘great bloke’ with appropriately matched beer.

Those who work extra hours or go out of their way for their mates can even use the website to request a slab from someone else. Send A Slab will deliver the message to your chosen friend, then all you have to do is wait to see if they pull through.

Both the sender and receiver must be over 18 years of age to comply with Australian liquor control regulations.

For fly-in fly-out miners in particular who are away for extended periods of time and are isolated from family and friends, this new way of sending a case to anywhere in the country is sure to be a hit. A kind gesture to say sorry for the stuff-up at work is just a mouse click away.

Is the mining boom in Australia over?

Is the mining boom in Australia over?

No, it's just media hype.
Yes as a result of lower demand.
There will be a second boom.
Still plenty of resources.
