Re: when your accent becomes a figure of speech

What are some of the current Austalianisms (old and new) still in use ? Have any fallen out of favour over the decades ?

Re: when your accent becomes a figure of speech

The problem with being an old duffer, and I speak from experience, is that that's very difficult to know when one's expressions are démodé.

Re: when your accent becomes a figure of speech

It's weird that that's such a tell for the Canadian accent. How does it get retained, I wonder. I could understand if it were limited to the Maratimes, but it seems to be countrywide.

Re: Trump Trump Trump

How many days until the Orange One posts ? I'll say be Wednesday the 23rd. (Apparently he has said he is going to stick with his Truth Social). At least he will be good entertainment value.

Re: Pierre Poilievre

On second thought, after speaking to a neighbor, you might be on to something there.

Re: Pierre Poilievre

Despite the voting base, I really don't think it came down to colour. I hope not. I think it was Truss' hyper populism and Mrs T tribute show.

The Disgusted of TB might not be on Insta but...

Re: Pierre Poilievre

Well the discussion was about how social media has come to dominate politics, and so all the leaders (or rising stars) calibrate their political stances to what will play well on social media. It's...

Re: Pierre Poilievre

There's talk of the era of serious political leaders being gone. Social media being all too powerful.

Re: Pierre Poilievre

Thanks for doing the heavy lifting. Could listening to his wacky ideas, although occasionally I'll give him a few minutes on GB News. Entertainment purposes, not news !

Re: Pierre Poilievre

Obviously not a regular form of contraception, and as you point out, abortion as contraception is a contradiction in terms. It's clearly a major procedure for a woman so not meant to be undertaken...

No problem, although it was you that raised the question in the first place.

Re: Pierre Poilievre

Yes, an acceptable form of contraception in the early weeks. On child support, I think if the mother chooses not to terminate against the father's wishes, then it would depend on the nature of the...

Re: Tip nudges, tipping, etc

I don't why people are rude to service staff. Have never understood that.

So would you say about 1 in 3 people leave some kind of tip ?

Re: Pierre Poilievre

That many of us are around to argue the fine points of vaccine efficacy is largely due to those vaccines. I agree it's nuanced though, that's why I find the term "pro bodily autonomy" misleading. ...

Re: Pierre Poilievre

Judging by the popular support he gets, that may be wishful thinking. Like Trump, he knows how to push the buttons with utter tosh.

Re: Tip nudges, tipping, etc

That's good to know. Do most customers tip at your FF place? What's the usual percentage.
Why are the people horrid, are they rude/aggressive? It must be tough.

Re: Tip nudges, tipping, etc

$13 divide by 1.48 = £8.78 Yikes ! London pints are £6-7 which is already pricey.

Re: Tip nudges, tipping, etc

Do the servers typically get the full tip or is it pooled. Anything over 15% does seem a bit of a racket. If they are getting minimum wage and a 15% tip (and in Canada, unlike the US, no healthcare...

That does sound a bit cheeky.
Is it not 15% of the pre-tax bill anymore ?

Tip nudge ! Didn't know there was a name for it (the do you want to add a tip option on card payment devices). What surprised me from the article is oil change places now asking for tip ?!
