Hey ChelseaDownUnder - please tell us about the 'train ticket'... we're baffled!
ockah-a bit coarse, rough, unsophisticated
i'm over......- I'm not dealing with that
there are sooo many, but see when you try to remember!!! I had to get used to repeating myself, it's become habit now, think i might develop a stutter.....
Everything I tell my aussie neighbour, I get "Far Out" in response.
According to her, my entire life is......"Far Out".
(I wonder if she's meaning my stomach, as its pretty "Far Out" right now! Only 20 more looooong weeks to go!)
Or as my daughter likes to mimic "and I was like, get over yourself, like"
No-one knows what you're talking about if you say "Bank Holiday"
They're "ATMs" not "Cash Points" and you "SMS" someone not "text" them
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
station wagon = estate car
petrol station = servo
dont worry = no dramas
having a drink while your drinig home = a roady
trainers = sneakers
trousers = pants
g-string = g-banger
loads of different sayings
All great, and people coming over, understand that it is a totally different language! Comig from North of Scotland it is really really hard to be understood, especially when you've had a drink or 2!!! My soon to be 8 year old now sounds like a bloody local though, and does a lot of translation for us!! Lol.
The other thing is they replace t's for d's in the middle of words. So if you want a bottle of water, say it as a boddle of wader!!! They'll get you first time!! Haha, always a fave piss take with my son!!!
