Tim Tams have a chemical which is also used in paint stripper in them. They are very bad for you. Chicken salt has ground bones and all this extra shite in it, so again, very bad for you.....

Dirt bikes, burn outs, animal welfare, constant loud music from next door, floods, cesspit overflows, naked kids in filthy nappies in shopping trolleys, no eye contact, the mad max driving ................ get me home now !!!!!

ps but I will miss the scenery and winter (not summer) weather............and the beaches........

What's with everybody hating the bag packing thing?? I know some of them are not very good at it but it's got to be better than some miserable mole firing them down the end of the counter where you have to then pack them asap before the next persons stuff comes flying down...doesn't it??

I don't think so no. I also find the checkouts here quite claustrophobic and some conveyors are so dated & filthy they barely move.

Conveyors that barely move..that must be terrible. Never mind you'll be back home away from them all soon enough. Good Luck.

I will miss the windy beach days when you cant open your eyes because they will be pebble-dashed.
The dog shit in the parks.
The crap lagers and imported draught beers that taste crap as they have gone off on the long journey over.
The bloody flies.
The dire TV and constant adverts for penile disfunction and viagra.
Being almost stabbed or beaten to death in Northbridge on a few occasions.
(Northbridge is a war zone, and even on the off chance you do manage to avoid being beaten or robbed, then you can just end up like me and be ejected for no reason by bouncers and police who are understandably paranoid about the entire situation)
Will miss the low wages and working my butt off 6 days a week for what I earn in the UK in 3 days.
Yes will miss the flat barren mind- numbing Perth so much
