Contact in Australia Needed
« on: June 05, 2018, 07:43:45 pm »
Can one of you guys that lives in Australia help me get in touch with someone in Victoria? I have the name and telephone number of a person I need to reach. I called, but I had a hard time understand Australian and the call ended before we could finish our conversation. I'm hoping that one of you guys could get in touch with this person by phone, explain what I was trying to say, and get back to me with some information. Please PM me if you can help and I'll share the name and telephone number.

I'm just a happy to know I'm not the only one with this affliction...

I've tried to talk to the KIWI who now owns my old 71 Mach and can't understand half of what he says. 

Recently went out to eat with my niece from Southern Louisiana and I thought she was trying to order "baked stork"... turns out it was Becks Dark. ;) ;D

I take it that's an Aussie insult?

     Same idea here, we need a translation. Best that I can come up with is a "bar tender" but at least here that isn't derogatory. Maybe a "bar fly" is a closer translation? Should we do a poll or just let the kids sort it out? :D

Just say it fast. Politically Correct way of calling him a b*****d without actually coming out and saying so...

Strewth, you fella's are sure on our case!
However, you've got buckley's of ever getting us to pack a sad.
We might look like a bunch of plonka's in budgie smugglers, but we're sure set to give the stanga's a flogging at the drop of a hat.
So, pull your socks up and Robert will be your mother's brother.
