Selling BS to the world disguised as a DREAM. Ruthless depredation of people’s lives from all over the world by getting them sucked in with “blue water and pristine beaches” propaganda. Most of us on this forum know that the blue water and the beaches are for real BUT the...
Be aware of the following;
1. False and Misleading Advertising – this is condoned at all levels. One example is in tourism. The country is promoted as having great beaches. However when you arrive here you will discover that ALL of the beaches in tropical Queensland are...
for two years and I don't like it one bit.
People here are not emotional enough.
Everything is so expensive and it is difficult to make real friends.
I am thinking of leaving soon before I turn 30.
After living in the '*** end of the earth' for three years, I am very happy to have left that country. I grew up there and even I can see how downhill both Sydney and Australia have gone since the 1980's.
I can sum it by these observations:
The cities are too damn expensive to...
"Wog" on this forum.
Wealthy Oriental Gentleman.
Gee! Shucks! Aussies!
You put tears in my eyes.
You're so nice and friendly and appreciative of me.
Aussie! Aussie! Aussie!
Vomit! Vomit! Vomit!
Snake vomit that is.
I've seen enough to make a fair and solid judgement. This country is absolutely not for me.
This country has its upsides and its downsides, but you seldom see any of the downsides from any mainstream media outlet. From what I have seen, Australians tend to completely and...
I am a new member and I would like to vent my frustration.It is healthy to do so.I know that nothing will change, but my purpose is not to bring about change.My need is to release my pent up anger on this forum.I have lived in Australia for 47 years (since 1967).I was born in...
lived here all my life. I'm honest to god sick of it. Sick of all the uncultured, mean, racist bogans. Sick of the misplaced nationalism. Sick of the crap that fills our media. Sick of being made to pay through the nose because I am a young woman who wants to be educated. I hate...
Australia, an innocent man was murdered by a 15 year old who no one wants to be accountable for... really no one seen it coming??
Islamaphobic's don't recognise a problem in their behaviour, what you hate in others...is exactly the same thing they hate!
Muslims say the radicals...
2. Hiya goin, orite.
3. Call Doctors and Presidents "Mite" (mate), instead of "Doctor" or "Sir" or "Mr President".
4. Call women that they don't know "Luv" or "Darl" (darling).
5. Head business letters with "Hi John" instead of "Dear Mr Smith".
6. Children in a school yard that...
I moved here over 6 years ago and am having one hell of a time making friends, finding work, fitting in, not being bored out of my damn mind.............
It wasn't my choice to move here so it's no surprise I'm not happy. I just wish I had friends, that I could confide in, that...
...... I bought a shirt the other day when I was in Australia. It looked nice, but strangely it was uncomfortable at the back of the neck. The source of the discomfort was the label, so I decided to remove it. To my surprise, I discovered that the WaveZone label had actually been...
since coming here in 1978 which I have kept inside of me for far too long. Now I am letting off steam. It is bloody expensive to live here and if you are on a low income or receiving welfare payments you will struggle. This is no ''Lucky Country'' and would recommend anyone...
and most limited culture in the World?
Who are the most boring people in the World?
Which variety of spoken English is the ugliest in the World?
Is it England?
Is it America?
Is it Canada?
Is it New Zealand?
Is it South Africa?
Or is it Australia?
Please someone afford...
Don't ignore me.
I was enjoying being called a 'Wog".
It is a compliment to me.
I am still confused about its meaning.
Wealthy or Wise Oriental Gentleman?
Or is it:
Wealthy or Wise Old Gentleman?
So pretty please mateys.
Call me a "Wog".
I like it.
but the population of the entire country is the same as the state of Texas and a little more than the state of Florida.
If you are familiar with the US, and are curious about Australia, imagine either one of those states spread out over the whole continent. Then subtract all...
Whilst I do love Australia in a lot of respects I increasingly find myself despising the banality of the place- the constant dumbing down of humour and news, the inability of Australians to understand that my kids didn’t support the Wallabies, that I don’t delight in boat...
10 Things I Hate About You:
1. Your fickle, bipolar weather
Ok, I'm referring specifically to Melbourne here but if I hear the description '4 seasons in one day' one more time, I'm going to shoot you in the head. Hot or cold, make up your bloody mind! People moving to Australia...
I keep telling them not to watch television, and read newspapers, and listen to radio talk back, and be skeptical of most alternative news on the Internet ... but they simply don't listen.
Who cares about Australians anyway.
I give up.
Go ahead and keep repeating...
environment in Sydney:
1. Giday "John"! hiya goin mite (mate),orite?
2. "John" answers ... good mite (mate), yirself?
3. "John" is not really well. He has skin cancer growing on his face, and he has arthritis, and walks with a limp. He needs a job to pay for the high cost of...
and know that I am not alone. I hate Australia as I am bored out of my mind here.
I came to Australia excited and with high expectations from my now fiancée who is born and raised in Sydney. He has a skewed view of Australia as this perfect almost Utopian place - as I have come...
(And Why I hate it)
I was born in a really **** part of England. There were robberies, gangs rife, the streets were dangerous and a majority of the muslim people in our town despised us (even though we were BORN there) and so it goes on, and on, and on.
Now, I live in sunny WA...
I did a lot of night shift work.
Therefore, I was compelled to use taxis to and from work. The organisation paid for the taxi fares.
Nine times out of ten the Sydney taxi drivers asked me the following questions:
1. What nationality are you?
2. What religion do you follow?
Do not bother debating any issues with Australians on a one to one basis on this forum.
By all means, do post your experiences and your feelings on living (dying) in Australia, but please do not bother to reply to the comments of Australians on this forum.
Of course, I am...
appreciated' as PM as time goes by.... He really is crazy, it's a frightening memory that he was our PM, Australian politics are just a joke
to get telephone calls from canvassers.
The first thing that they used to say is ... "How are you today?".
Do you see the stupidity and the immaturity of Australians.
Here we are:
Two complete strangers and he asks me "How I am?"... as if he really cared how I really am.
2. Level 4 of Secondary School Students.
3. Disrespectful of Learned People.
4. Call everyone "Mite" (Mate), including "High Profile Individuals".
6. Babies running around with the "hiya goin mite" or "how are ya, good" on their "Impulsive and Habitual" lips...
Indoctrination of Australia starts at an early age.
They are getting thought from early age to shut their mouth and comply with the rules or else. The “Else=Prosecution” methods will go as far as banning them from school, banning them out of the system and denying them the...
Anglo-Irish family. I lived there till I was in my 20s when I decided to experience living overseas. I wound up spending 12 years overseas and pretty much travelling the world. After a long absence I decided to return to my native country, which turned out to be possibly the...
I hope that all is well with you, and your husband.
If your husband were treating me, I would address him as "Dr Smith" e.g.
I would never call him a mate.
Only "Intellectually Dead Australians" would call a Doctor "Mite" (mate).
I am not surprised.
movie. In the beginning of your tale, you move into a "beautiful" house, with the belief that you are "privileged" and "lucky". Nice, isolated house, by the ocean, fresh air and sunny beaches! For a few days you REALLY enjoy it, you overlook a few "small" flaws, some shady and...
All people have got something in common in this Blog!
Except the Aussie xenophobe, talking !
I am biased when I say this because I am from a non-Anglo background, but I honestly believe that the all-consuming misguided Australian believe that you are only an real Ozzy if you are...
I am an emigrant. I am disgusted by this country of bogan sheep minded people...and I am using that word loosely. Tradespeople are not skilled..build to a price and down to a standard seems to be the ethos. The intelligentsia .... well there isn't any more since Whitlam walked...
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...
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...
and Australians) that the Anglo Australian culutre is "Fantastically Boring", when it is compared to many other cultures in the World.
Australians en masse refuse to admit this fact, and it is a fact.
The English language alone is boring and depressing to hear.
and the people around them know nothing. Experiences over the past week:
1. Micromanaging and repetition
Stupid boss keeps coming and saying the same thing every 5min.
"You'll just need to figure out when client will be able to meet and let me know. Keep me informed".
somewhere without feeling like I am going to be stabbed, or told to eff off. I have been living here all my life and every single year has been depressing rollercoaster. It has taken me a while to realise I don't belong in this dump land, but somewhere where I am welcomed for...
and admit the truth.
Many a word has been uttered on this forum for and against "Living in Australia".
The sad truth of the matter is that the Anglo Australian culutre is remerkably limited in variety and incorrigibly boring.
Do the maths.
Compare the Anglo Australian culture...
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...
