    We (my wife, son and myself) have

    now been here just over two years. We have gone through what others have gone through who post on this site but we now treat living in Australia as almost a game. This was brought about recently by having no wi fi for three weeks. I posted on a consumer site how bad Telstra was...

    Yes.  This is a terrible country to live in or even travel to for that matter.  Let me say that I never write posts but I feel so strongly about this and was comforted by hearing the stories of other like-minded people.  Australia truly sucks.I'm a Canadian who's been living...

    Tact - from the dictionary - "adroitness

    Look at how the hole is struggling with its

    Hi there, That's a terrible title to start a post, I've just used it to conform to this forum for those who, like myself, live in Aus and are tired of having to deal with the locals. Im pretty tired. Soon I'll leave to another country, a real country, with real human beings...

    When dealing with Aussies,

    it is important to remain calm and detached. I know that having to deal with them on a daily basis is hard, and they have a confrontational manner about them that gets one's blood boiling. You feel like you want to scream and shout at them, but don't.If they have some position...

    As an immigrant, I understand why lots of people say they hate living in Australia. I don't enjoy living here either, (I know you'd say go back to where you came from then, again. Now bogans, F off), but I now think it is not hate, rather disappointed. Australia has a fairly...

    Word Of Advice For Newcomers

    It IS decent of newcomers to Australia, like opiated and deadjellyfish before her, to defend a culture in which they are a visitor, and which they don't understand. I can't fault that. It is the right thing to do... if one is unsure about a people, it is best to default to...

    Freedom is a Joke In Australia
