    Doesn't bother me at all. You're making an issue, not me. I'm just pointing out that an Australian definitely knows the 'back of the bus' reference re. racial history. Kind of naive of you not to have picked up on that.

    1) You're the one who brought it up as if it mattered. So you're the one making it an issue.

    2) I'm not saying, nor have I ever said that Australians don't get the reference, I'm just pointing out that it wouldn't necessarily be at the forefront of their minds in the context at issue.

    3) You'r still taking a comedy routine far too seriously, and that's kind of funny.

    (sigh) Scrolling back, looks like I replied when you brought it up. Or were you hoping to be ignored?

    And I'm saying you're wrong.

    I'm not taking it at all seriously. Doesn't mean anything to me. Get your giggles where you can.

    that is all.

    I was a teenager when I met my first deep south transplanted family (they were from Alabama... California was a culture shock, lol). When my boyfriend's sweet mother said to me, "Would you please carry me to the store?" I just stood there with my mouth open, wondering how in the heck she expected me to carry her anywhere, since she outweighed me by at least 80 pounds!!!

    That's when I learned you don't drive or take someone to the store in the south... you "carry" them. Oh, and you don't carry bags or buckets... you "tote" them! I learned a whole new culture from those wonderful folks!
