Yep Swishman, makes perfect sense to me

PDU, I remember learning about nouns and pro nouns and verbs and adjectives

I have no idea if I spelt it right or what most of them mean

But I get the jist of it, I think

I remember reading about a famous Australian transport identity that spelt probably as good as me or Swishman
He was really embarrassed by this

But as his business grew he got past it and learnt jow spell and read and write better and got passed his embarrassment

The English language must very challenging to new Australians over the years

Some years ago when my step-daughters were at State (Primary) School, I went to a parent-teacher night. The head teacher waxed lyrical about the air-fairy subjects they were teaching. I asked "What about the three R's?"  She said what do you mean? I explained "Reading (w)Riting and aRithmetic."
She replied, "Oh we teach those as well."  I told a friend about it and he said that if gthey do not know what the subjects are, they will not be teaching them.
This was at a school where the teachers used the slang word "Youse" to mean more than one person and where children were taught to pronounce "H" as Haich.

I suggested to my wife that we change schools but as the one involved was the closest to where we lived, I was overruled.
 

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

I could blame my dad as well(?), one of his sayings while working at GMH was:
"Wot for you speak the oi? I no speak the oi!"
It was a reply he would use when people wanted his attention and called out ,'Oi!" to him.

Also it became second nature while working as a print editor for four years.

Much as I can speak pretty good done mighty beaut I also make mistakes - and my sentences do tend to ramble on longer than necessary with prolific use of dots, dashes, commas and brackets (parentheses, often as additional information or asides) just like this sentence! See what I mean? 

NB   No offence was meant to anybody (unless we are referring to fences) and this has given me a chance to add another emoji.

I have never had a chance to use this response but I would love to, when someone whistles at me to get my attention:-
"What do you want me to do, bark or run up and pee on your leg?"

I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Arguing with your wife is like reading a software licence agreement.


Eventually you give up and press "I agree"

Having lived through a pandemic I now understand all the painting of fat people on couches!

Incredible machinist trick: Cube in a cube (youtube.com)

A worldwide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was: "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?" The survey was a huge failure. In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant. In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant. In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant. In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant. In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant. In South America they didn't know what "please" meant. And in the USA they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.

The version I heard was that it was a telephone survey and the Australians hung up/closed the phone as soon as they heard the Indian accent.

I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
