There's good and bad in every nationality. It's bloody unfair to tar everyone with the same brush

Be sensible guys

For a thread on manners this thread is getting rather rude. Can we please at least TRY and be polite!

How can anyone not like someone just because of their nationality

Jeez....there's some warped logic going on here, even more surprisingly as it's intelligent people

Take a reality check guys

Not a question of not liking people....simply giving an opinion on the subject under discussion.

I can be ignorant but a lot of people still like me.

At least the fish dont whinge

Rather fancy the rain rather than the whinging at the moment. People losing their homes and we are worried about comparing individuals and generalising about manners??????

Being ignorant is one think Grayling.....but ruling out a nation of people on the basis of a few bad experiences is surely not logical

ZX [Aussie poster above] has never been anything but courteous, he's a lovely fella who happily joins in the banter. How could you be mean to someone who is so non offensive and likeable G

Of course it's a 'them and us' situation Pol. You know it and so does everybody else who has ever said anything detramental about Australia.

I suspect the whole point of posting the thread in the first place was so that all the anti-Oz people could get together and have one of their mutual whinge-fests. I very much doubt if it was meant for it anyone else's eyes at all....
i am not anti-oz, i quite like it here. BUT, i do find manners a little lacking on some fronts. O/H works on-site, his work colleagues (painters/plumbers etc) have also said that ozzies can come across as rude. what is perceived rude to some people, is not rude to others. ie. if it is how it is in australia, they dont see it as being rude. but, from the other side of the world like the UK, it can be seen as rude. the O/P was only pointing out that she finds SOME australians rude in SOME circumstances.

yes, there are other things better to do with ones time rather than argue who you think is rude and who isnt, but, in some peoples opinions, they find australians lacking in the manners department. they are within their right to voice their opinion, as you all are. i am one of them. i will hold my hand up. i also find their staring unnerving. i do however realise that that i am not one to judge, as it is how it is in australia, and we are foreigners in their country..............i still find it grates me though
