no worries

I've been surfin the bb for a while, but i never seem to have enough time to read everything let alone reply.

Most of the time others have already said what i wantd to say, but i must admit jayna's comments kinda riled(?) me up. so i had to reply.

There are a few Kiwi nurses out there i have spied on various threads and i have told several of my online colleagues about this site and we often surf at work on our breaks.

Hi to all, I think the Ause' vs NZ'rs will go on for ever. I think we have our hard workers in both countries, as well as the lazy ones. Not many men dress like farmers, maybe in the movies. I will admit I have been told Australians are more friendly. Ive lived in a city for four years, from the country, saying hi to your neighbours more often gives you a response as if your checking out their place i.e. robber. As for six or sex, who really cares as long as they dont miss out, meaning six for a six pack of beer, that is typical of a Kiwi bloke. We have our + and - in all countries no doubt. Catch u later, wish I was in ause its a cold day today!!

hi there from a real kiwi

an proud of it!

I'm a southlander too so i use the word wee a lot (meaning small)

and i roll my RRRRRRRs. the only place in NZ to have it's own accent!

NZ is a beautiful country and unlike other kiwis who have travelled overseas i have seen a lot of my own country, so i can say this with confidence.

I have also been to oz and it would appear to me that ozzies live for the beach and have more stat days then NZ so who likes to work harder jayna????

any way it's always fun to have some friendly rivalry happening.


Hello KiwiRN.

You wont agree but this is very true. I See it in the outsiders point of view.

Apology for being general in this less harding working story as its not a general matter. It comes to a specific group.

Yes I dare to join this discussion. I'm not about to make any wisecracks about Australia though as it is just too late at night.

Anyway - Greetings from NZ.:roll

Being a Kiwi, I take great offence to some of these comments. Australians are the one's that pronnounce the word six as SEX. My cousins live in Auss now, and can't get over how terrible the language is.

New Zealanders speak the queens english, and unlike our Australian counterparts, we don't have webbed fingers and play the banjo !!

As you can see this is a subject very dear to my heart. As Robert Muldoon said "When New Zealanders migrate to Australia they increase the IQ of both countries"

Anyway, I love to visit Australia but would never class myself as a cousin of aussie.

Hehe... tis fun to stir

Have a great day.
