Australian letter of the year

Just B

Recommended Posts

A fabulous characteristic of Australians is that they are far more

>> direct and outspoken than others when dealing with the sort of elected

>> w*nker who wouldn't otherwise get the full drift of what we were trying

>> to communicate.


>> Below is one such wonderful communication...


>> Dear Mr. Minister,

>> I'm in the process of renewing my passport, and still cannot believe

>> this.

>> How is it that K-Mart has my address and telephone number, and knows

>> that I bought a Television Set and Golf Clubs from them back in 1997,

>> and yet, the Federal Government is still asking me where I was born and

>> on what date.


>> For Goodness sakes, do you guys do this by hand?


>> My birth date you have in my Medicare information, and it is on all the

>> income tax forms I've filed for the past 40 years. It is on my driver's

>> licence, on the last eight passports I've ever had, on all those stupid

>> customs declaration forms I've had to fill out before being allowed off

>> the planes over the last 30 years, and all those insufferable census

>> forms that I've filled out every 5 years since 1966.


>> Also..would somebody please take note, once and for all, that my

>> mother's name is Audrey, my Father's name is Jack, and I'd be absolutely

>> f*cking astounded if that ever changed between now and when I drop

>> dead!!!...

>> SH*T!

>> I apologize, Mr. Minister. But I'm really p*ssed off this morning.

>> Between you an' me, I've had enough of all this bullsh*t! You send the

>> application to my house, then you ask me for my f*cking address!! What

>> the hell is going on with your mob? Have you got a gang of mindless

>> Neanderthal a*seholes workin' there!


>> And another thing, look at my damn picture. Do I look like Bin Laden? I

>> can't even grow a beard for goodness sakes. I just want to go to New

>> Zealand and see my new granddaughter. (Yes, my son interbred with a

>> Kiwi girl). And would someone please tell me, why would you give a sh*t

>> whether I plan on visiting a farm in the next 15 days? If I ever got

>> the urge to do something weird to a sheep or a horse, believe you me,

>> I'd sure as hell not want to tell anyone!


>> Well, I have to go now, 'cause I have to go to the other end of the

>> city, and get another f*cking copy of my birth certificate, and to part

>> with another $80 for the privilege of accessing MY OWN INFORMATION!


>> Would it be so complicated to have all the services in the same spot, to

>> assist in the issuance of a new passport on the same day?? Nooooo..

>> that'd be too f*cking easy and makes far too much sense. You would much

>> prefer to have us running all over the place like chickens with our

>> f*cking heads cut off, and then having to find some high society w*nker

>> to confirm that it's really me in the goddamn photo! You know the

>> photo..the one where we're not allowed to smile?! ...you f*cking morons


>> Signed - An Irate Australian Citizen.


>> P.S Remember what I said above about the picture, and getting someone in

>> high-society to confirm that it's me? Well, my family has been in this

>> country since before 1850! In 1856, one of my forefathers took up arms

>> with Peter Lalor. (You do remember the Eureka Stockade!!) I have also

>> served in both the CMF and regular Army something over 30 years (I went

>> to Vietnam in 1967), and still have high security clearances. I'm also a

>> personal friend of the president of the RSL.. and Lt General Peter

>> Cosgrove sends me a Christmas card each year.


>> However, your rules require that I have to get someone 'important' to

>> verify who I am; You know.. someone like my doctor; WHO WAS BORN AND

>> RAISED IN F*CKING PAKISTAN !!!......a country where they either

>> assassinate or hang their ex-Prime Ministers, and are suspended from the

>> Commonwealth for not having the 'right sort of government.'


>> You are all F*cking idiots

Yeah the thing about Aus is that if it is in the rule book and it probably is, then thats the way you have to do it, whether it makes sense or not. Cause its the law!!!

Thank you. Had a good laugh. The writer has a point though.

The writer might have a point, but there is a way to get your point across without lowering your intelligence to resort to this sort of demeaning language.

I reckon he's been watching too many Hollywood films with all the coarse language that seems to sell movies in America today.

No wonder other races in America are calling them "White trash" when using language like that . . . . as seem to be depicted all the time by Hollywood. . . . . and an Aussie ought to know better!

I tell my kids they can either only ever amount to being second rate Yanks in mimicing what comes out of America nowadays, or they can be first grade true blue, dinkie die Australians. . . . and proud of it!

They've chosen to talk like true Aussies. . . . without every other word being an "f . . . " or a "c. . ." as in American films.

Well, I was horrified (and amused, ok) watching a dvd of the Aussie comedian Kevin Bloody Wilson, whose every other word is a "f . . . " or a "c. . ." Glad to hear that's not the norm!!

Yeah, well . . . . . there are some Aussies nowadays that exist on a steady diet of American sitcoms and absorb the American culture like a sponge.

Instead of "chips" they say "fries", to be super trendy.

I tell my kids to be proud of being Australian.

Personally, I consider Australians to be better than Americans in the way they care about each other on a social level and how they operate.

I've told my kids they can either be 100% true blue fair dinkum Aussies . . . . . and be proud of it . . . . . . or be a second rate, copy version of an American and that is all they will ever be!

I wish more Australians would take more pride in who they are, what history they have and where they have come from in the past 220 years.

Sadly, with the multi cultural, pluralistic, "anything goes" society we have today, Australia's history and the people that made this country what it is today with its values of a "fair go" are being placed in the background.

We seem to be following America over the edge of the cliff.
