Europe is not any better, the stupid just takes on different shapes.
Individual humans are interesting and often quit intelligent, lots of humans together are stupid beyond belief.

True, but at least Europe isn't Australia, plus it's cooler weather over there :P

Well theres the original kind of Australian ;

" Aarrgh pass tha goon there braaaa"
- spoken in an aboriginal tone.

OR.

There's the 2010 newest brand ; which consist mainly of Asian, Indian, & Bogan.

But the kind I was talking about ; is the part where you understand at least the different between 3 & 30. You know, basic needs to live in Australia. I would say english, but I'm pretty sure majority of this place isn't Aussie anymore ; yet other countries.

I think we have discussed this somewhere in this forum before...
What is an 'Aussie'? What people often don't realize is that statements such as:
Quote by Dann.:
I'm pretty sure majority of this place isn't Aussie anymore
simply don't apply. An Aussie always (last 150 years) has been an immigrants from somewhere in the world, initial colonization was very Anglo-Saxon, but ever since then its a mix of everything. Australia as a nation is not old enough and hasn't been through enough shit to truly have a 'National Identity', the stereotype of what an Aussie is that we sell overseas is designed to attract tourist, and is also what many people would like to believe they but the wast majority of people living in Australia are not blond blue eyed surf dudes (master race anyone?).

The concept of an Aussie is ever changing and evolving, but all Aussies have one thing in common, they are immigrants to this country (excluding the Indigenous they have been here for about 40 - 60,000 years), difference is mainly the country of origin.

Dann. told me today at work she isn't talking to me anymore.

I asked why, and she said she wasn't allowed to.  Some sort of decree from management perhaps?  =(

- No. I said she wasn't aloud to serve you. I was in charge. Rule is not aloud to serve. Meant to be 'watching registers, making sure it runs smoothly' ; which I think is near impossible, with it being Goodna and never having enough staff.

One question - what are you going to do when I quit woolworths? My course finishes end of May. Oh no! You'll have to stalk me when I find a new job. Or you'll just keep harrassing the other staff members.

I'm going to start a forum one day about the bald head man that always comes in. Hes a good photographer though, & is helping me alot (=

So I was shopping at the local Woolies this evening, and one of the girls ran over to show me her new hair.  It was a delightful shade of reddish orange with lighter highlights.  I had to touch it, and it felt aaaaaaawesome.

But management, apparently, does not approve.  She's been told to change it, and on Friday she'll be doing exactly that. 

So I invited her back to my place for a little Thursday night photoshootery after work. 

Pics soon!

I can't believe that in this day and age a company such as Woolies objects to someones hair colour, and it's not even crazy hair! I mean people like Pat and Josh manage to get a job, and they have ridiculous hair!

It's a interesting concept though.
'Let's make someone change their hair colour because we don't approve of it.'

Doeas that mean that if I become a manager at Woolies that I can make all the fat people exercise? And all the ugly people get surgery? Because it's a simple extension of what they're doing here...

On some levels I agree with their point: You may not really want people with 47 nose-rings ringing up the things you're gonna eat, and I'd prefer not to see things through a clerk's earlobes if I can avoid it.

So there's a line, and it seems red hair is beyond the Woolies line.  A bit sad, but it's hard to seriously condemn an action that, were it a more egregious transgression, I would support.

The thing is; they have a strict policy on piercings, I'm fairly sure that you're allowed nothing more than a certain amount in the ears. But hair colour is something which cannot be quantified. The way it is now leaves the field open to a manager who doesn't like an employee discriminating against them.

Until you can assign hairstyles a certain value, you shouldn't be able to say that certain colours like this which you'd have to call 'on the line' inappropriate.

Subject: More Woolies Girls
Tonight I walked up to the plainclothes security guy at Woolies and said "I'm sorry sir, I'm going to have to ask you to leave.  Oh, and please empty your pockets on the way out."


A few nights ago I went up to the cashier to pay for my stuff, and as I approached her counter she looks at me and says "boobs."

Well naturally I thought this was pretty great, and I told her that she seemed to be very well trained indeed.  She replied that she didn't need to be trained, she was always like this.  Outside of the store, she assured me, she was able to turn anything I might say into something dirty.  "I'm like a man" she says.

I told her I wasn't really sure I was quite as keen on her boobs anymore.


Tonight a different girl was ringing up my stuff, including a few bags of honey coated cashews we're taking to Japan, and she commented on the amount of nuts.  I said "I'll thank you to stop talking about my nuts" and she laughed.  I think it's the first time she's ever laughed immediately after I said something, normally she stares for a moment, says "I don't get it."  then laughts, stops, and says "No, wait, I still don't get it."

Tonight, she got it.

Subject: Ahh, the Woolies girls...
So tonight there's no food in the house, and I made a quick trip to Woolies for some provisions.

First, one girl (the redhead above) bounces up and demands 'presents from China'.  All well and good, but I was in Japan.  She doesn't care, she wants presents.  From China. 

And the girl who served me ranted on for some time about her new bra, and was unhappy that no one would let her show it off at work.  I do not know what sort of mesmerizing collection of lace and flowers and underwires were contained beneath her shirt, but I am led to believe they are amazing.

On the way out, one girl showed me something.  Here's the backstory:

Me: Oh, and I guess I kinda look forward to some people in Australia... I guess.
Her: the woolworthsians!
Me: Oh yeah! Definitely worth coming back for that.
Her: i have somthing to show you :)
Me: Oh that's right, you're 18 now! It's not illegal!

Well, tonight she showed me a rather large tattoo beneath her ribs.  She was also on crutches, 'cause of a failed backflip.  "I didn't know you could...  Oh, no, you obviously can't backflip, can you" I said.

It's good to be back.  =D
