1) We have drive through liquor stores, but usually only for beer.
2) Aussies tend to sit up front by the driver if we're the only passenger.
3) Mustard and tomato sauce packets are free at fast food chains, sometimes pay extra for them at small private takeaway stores.
4) Australia has video streaming services, but most people download shows illegally from The Pirate Bay.
5) Most Aussies cut their own lawns.
6) Australia has illegal immigrants who arrive by boat. No idea whether they receive health care or not.
7) Indians mostly work in petrol stations but don't own them.
8) You can sit wherever you like in most Australian cinemas.
9) I have never seen a shoeshiner in Australia.
10) Australian cops can pull you over to breath test you for alcohol, but only at a certain locations. Usually they're professional and courteous about it.
11) Australian supermarkets have been cutting back on plastic bag usage for a number of years. They sell re-usable carry bags for a buck each.
12) Aussie supermarkets don't sell beer, but they sell home grew kits.
13) Aussies pass each other on the left.

Guess they've gone ahead with the Woolies liquor store plan since I was last in Sydney.
I'm in Melbourne and it's actually called Safeway here but they have alcohol. It's separate from the rest of the store because under 18s at registers aren't allowed to touch it. Employees have to be over 18 to even go in the alcohol section.

I can't go to America because I've got a criminal record. You'd have to start the fight, I'd be just in your face abusing you.
Don't need a big arse to hip and shoulder someone.

Thank you so much everyone for your replies. No wonder I run into so many Australians. When I walk toward them they move to their left and I to my right. Bang. Enjoy your new years
