    One of my co-workers (who didn't strike) went through all my tickets and added a "Bucketman can you please update these?" which is really annoying. I asked him why he did this and he was like "Well you hadn't updated any of them for nearly 2 full weeks!"

    Yeah man, wonder why. What event could have caused me to not updated my tickets for 8 working days? What possibly could it have been? I fucking wonder.

    I know we mostly agreed on no shade at folks at your job who didn't strike because they needed the money, but this shit is a scab-ass move.

    I mean, if we're just collecting a list of countries where people think Bucketmans coworker is a dick, add Denmark to it.

    Bonus point if the final list is printed on a roll of paper so Bucketman can get a proper unfurling on when he presents it. "People from the following countries..."

    The more I have learned about Australian slang, the more I have learned it basically all derived out of exceeding laziness. "Yeah we just cut the word in half and add an "a" to the end" is a thing I've heard.

    Indeed, if someone's dropping trailing consonants and using rhyming slang, it's pretty fucking safe to assume they didn't go to a $30,000 per annum finishing school before attending Eton to read law in the college named after their Great-Grandfather...

    Yes but it's not our slang, which makes it foreign and weird.

    Actual regional slang is not really a thing here in my neck of the woods anymore as far as I can tell.

    You've certainly got your accents and colloquialisms but I can't think of any particular slang thats used here and not everywhere else in the country.

    We say "damn" a lot. Like, a lot. I've gotten to where I'll do it at work so a conversation would go something like this:

    Quality guy: "How'd they run?"

    Me: "Man, the damn cap kept faultin' out every damn time I started the fuckin thing up. Put it in manual, wouldn't damn run, put it in thread, wouldn't damn run. Gave up on the piece of shit and wrote it up for damn maintenance. Let them deal with damn thing."

    Quality guy: "Damn."

    Also a thing that is entirely unique to my workplace is referring to everyone as "Hammer"

    Hey, Hammer. How ya doin', Hammer? That guy's a Hammer.

    Also "aaaaaaay lordy" when receiving mildly inconvenient news.

    The longer you draw out the "ay" the more mildly inconvenienced you are.

    About the only actual regional slang that people genuinely use in Boston is "wicked" to mean "very."

    "Saw them live at Avalon, was wicked fuckin' cool," etc.

    Pittsburgh gets a lot of slang attributed to it that I never once heard while living there. Ditto North Carolina.

    It’s honestly hard to know what cultural influences have spread where and why, so my Postman Pat question was an honest question. (The reason I asked specifically about US people was because both Cello and Tynic had indicated they understood the reference).

    Mori’s been completely unaware of some phrases and words I honestly thought were common across the English-speaking world, and on the flip side he’s recognized TV shows or music I thought wouldn’t have reached US shores.

    And the internet has muddied that all up even more, plus people will be differently influenced depending on the particular social groups they ran in.

    Postman Pat made it to 'Straya via the ABC, which is why Tynic knows it.

    I feel like the Australian English speaking accents are:
    West & South coast
    North coast and Queensland
    NSW, Victorian

    Within each region you have posh, common and Australian Aboriginal variants

    Anyway in jobbo (ey) news I actually got another interview next Thursday

    And it's for another role in the same non-profit, they actually want to interview me for two different positions, and then... I dunno? Seems odd. But still. Can't be bad. This is more engaging with NHS trusts and giving them support in terms of providing responses to people's descriptions of their care experience, which is a bit more responsibility, but would be a good way to start building up a CV that applies to non-profit roles. I had a look into non-profit governance qualifications and there are things you can do in that, which would be cool.
