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.
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...
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...
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.
which can be recognised as anti-intellectual it's Australia the stupid country. People here are perhaps the most ignorant. They believe their government's propaganda and they're always following the media whilst disguising their low self esteem. If you are in any way different...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
Thankyou everyone for sharing your stories about what it is really like here
I have lived in australia for the past 13 years
i should probably say here that i cannot speak for every australian, just the ones i have encountered since being here
as beautiful as some of the...
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.
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...
before I decided to visit there for a month. In world events, especially those showing faults of a country, I've often seen Aussies the most on there bagging the other countries (doubly so for the U.S.) and claiming they don't have those problems and that their country is the...
(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...
there's something you need to know about oozies:they value "toughness".You've got to be seen as "tough" or else you won't fit in.Several posters on this forum complained how "weak" migrants and "ethnics" are.The worst fear an oozie has is to be accused of being "weak" and...
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...
for 4 years, and I hate this place so much.
Australians are cold and distant, and do not give themselves freely.
As soon as I conclude my university degree, I will leave this horrible country forever.
I should have never migrated here. That was a huge mistake.
They think that I hijacked this forum for my personal gripes against Australians and Australia.
If you don't want me to hang around this forum anymore, I'll go away permanently.
Just remember one thing:
It will be very boring without me on this forum.
I was the life of...
...... 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...
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?
In an attempt not to generalise all Australians, I'm going to use the term 'aussie' only for those who identify with being 'true blue', are proudly ignorant and full of social weirdness. There are even foreigners who suck up the redneck culture so easily I'd call them aussie as...
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...
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...
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...
'Australian visa has been granted! Look forward visiting Perth for launch new party: Australian Liberty Alliance!'
Poor Malcolm tried to stop the visa like he did Chris Brown and Troy Newman unfortunately it was unsuccessful.
The Australian Liberty Alliance may...
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...
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...
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...
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...
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...
I came to australia on a working holiday visa from the uk about three months ago. I am literally sickened by their racism, their rudeness and open discrimination towards all other cultures including my own. I paid for a whv and was hoping to find some sort of semi skilled work...
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...
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?

- I am divorcing you.
15 Years of good times and bad times, and I have made the decision to leave you for good. Took me a long time to get to this point, again and again you lured me into staying, giving it another go, trying to see the good things about you... but I can;t...
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...
A relative of mine migratred to Brazil some years ago.
At the begining, he did not like his job nor did he like Brazil.
His work mates recognised his issue, and immediately approached him and invited him to discuss this issue with them.
The Brazilians did not tell him "To fu...
