To the world at large, Australia is known for exporting precious metals. Unfortunately, the world is dead wrong.
Australia’s number one export?
Douchebags – lots and lots of douchebags, whole families, to be precise.
For the second time in a month, an Australian family has paid the greatest insult they could to a Canadian bellman. Of course, it was the only thing they gave said bellman. To be clear, The Hook was the bellman in question – again!
Many english-speaking Canadians feel their french-speaking brethren are annoying, arrogant goofballs who are responsible for unleashing one of the greatest horrors mankind has ever known – Celine Dion!
That fact notwithstanding, Australians have stepped up their game and surpassed the french by an outback mile. After loading two carts with a wide variety of suitcases, duffle bags, backpacks and a bag that looked like it was meant to carry skis, – in April! – I made my way to the lobby and my inescapable fate.
Sure enough, I received a weak “Cheers, mate!”, and I was left with a choice: attempt to make the douchebags realize they’re douchebags or walk away screaming inside, my soul poisoned once more.
Of course, I walked away, another post bubbling just beneath the surface of my troubled mind.
ONE FINAL NOTE:
While it’s true that 99% of my posts focus on my encounters with some the worst travellers moving across North America today, my life in general is actually pretty sweet. I have a loving family, both my parents are still with us (And one of them is actually involved in my life!), and I work with a great bunch of people.
All of which explains just why I haven’t gone postal and made the world a better place by removing some if it’s more annoying elements! So don’t feel too bad for The Hook, the summer is approaching and that means bigger tips and the most kick-ass event of The Hook’s year, Fan Expo Canada!
