My old pal Stephen Tait made contact with me through my blog this morning from Brisbane, on the way to the North Shore area of Sydney.
Excuse my ignorance but I assume that’s like the Trinity of Sydney, although Stephen will no doubt profess to it being a horrendous slum.
He never changes. A sample of the things he was saying to me in his email are.
“Crippled with debt.”
“Working 14 hour days”
His next comment is just plain bloody stupid…
“A pint in the Diggers watching Hearts would be a welcome break….but only for 90mins.”
Anyway I thought I’d look into the crippling hard working life in Australia. And here is what I found.
Och, poor wee Stephen, my heart bleeds for you. It’s so bloody stressful you’ve had to convert to Buddhism. Say one or me will ya?
Is that a bottle of Castlemaine xxxx by the way, or is he in serious need of a visit to the local clinic?
Buddah’s got a funny look in that area too.
Must be the pressure.
Poor old Tracie!
