There were two grumpy Aussie guys sitting behind me on the bus yesterday, the new arrival and the weary veteran.
"What's the deal with the weather over here mate?"
"It's shit. And soon it will be dark. Shit and dark."
"What does everyone do then? Watch telly? Go down the pub?"
"What else can you do when it's shit and dark?"
"Aww man. I'm gunna miss the summer. I was only thinking today I haven't had decent bit of fruit since I got here."
"That's because they can't grow anything here because it's shit and dark."
"Yeah. We are lucky to be from Australia."
"Yeah. Wish I could get my visa extended, but."
