*sigh*

Oops, two weeks since the latest entry...that must be a record.

So. Still in Hillston, for maybe a week and a half more. Was supposed to work today but some f***ing idiots decided to take the car out yesterday evening while drunk and ended up crashing it. The guys are fine, the car isn't, thus we have no transport to work. The boss has gone down to Mildura to try and get another car so I don't know if there's work tomorrow either. It pisses me off so badly, we were doing really well and making good money and then these childish people ruin it for everyone. I'm really hoping they'll get fired but knowing our boss, they won't. He's a complete loser when it comes to these things. I don't even know if they have to pay for the car to get fixed.

So yeah, it's interesting here. The boss keeps us well supplied with beer, every single day in fact. Which of course goes down well with the aforementioned idiots (these are new people by the way, who arrived last week and were not a part of the original group) who get drunk every day, are really loud and piss off the motel manager who's threatened to throw everyone out at least five times by now. It's not good since it affects people who haven't done anything like that. Argh.

But other than these people being a pain in our collective asses, we're still having a good time here, though starting to feel a little claustrophobic. I do not know how anyone could live here long term, and it's so completely landlocked as well...I need my beach!

Gah! There's always some who feel the need to spoil it for everyone else *glares*

They need to man up and realize that *gasp* they can still have fun without always being drunk, belligerent assholes.

Hope you get your car soon!

Sadly, not in Australia. It's all about the booze, which is pathetic. People think they're not having fun unless they're paralytic.

Unfortunately, it's not just an Australian thing.

Even as I was reading about the Drunken People, I was thinking "Maaaan, I bet they're American..."

Hehe.

Hmm. I was thinking they were either Australian, South African, British or German. They're the worst of the lot. Though Americans can't handle Australian alcohol.

Americans are just as bad. I cannot tell you how many of my guy frinds don't think they are having fun unless they are almost passed out from drunkeness.

Over here it's the girls as well. As in, they're drunk and puking outside bars. It's disgusting.

The drunken people in this case are from Germany and Northern Ireland. I seriously don't know how anyone can drink that much every single day. Huh.

Yeah, we have another car now.
I wish they'd realize that, I really do but I don't think they will...they're a bunch of 19-year-olds who think being drunk makes them cool.

Welcome to Australia. Beer, beer and more frigging beer. No wonder they're behaving like yobbos if the boss is supplying them. Morons.

I have your Medicare card, btw. Let me know where to send it.

I accidentally opened it, because I'd forgotten you were getting it sent to me! Argh.

I can't drink beer. Every time I have even one can, I wake up the next morning with an upset stomach. Can't handle it.
Probably no time to send it here...not sure yet where I'm going next but I might come down to Melbourne briefly again and pick it up then.

**thwaps the stupids**

Glad that despite them you're still having a good time. :)

At least the work is going well and you are making money. That is a positive!

I hate idiots who ruin things for everyone else. Hopefully, they will move on soon.
