    From adelaide myself, no offence intended


    You can make over $100,000 per year and still can't afford a house.

    You never bother looking at the train timetable because you know the
    drivers have never seen it either.

    You order organic fruit and vegetables online, but eat out every
    night anyway.

    You spend more money on your coffee machine than on your washing

    You spend $400+ per week for your room in an apartment with
    stunning harbour and beach views and European appliances; and spend a
    forty hours a week there, of which thirty-seven are spent sleeping.

    You contemplate calling a taxi from your home to where you managed
    to park your car the night before.

    You spend thirty minutes in a traffic jam next to a car that has
    more power going to its speakers than its wheels.

    You know everyone's e-mail and mobile number but not their last
    name or home address.

    You can roll sushi, make pasta and keep your red curry paste
    recipe under lock and key... but couldn't roast a chicken to save your

    Your taxi driver was a micro-surgeon before he emigrated to

    Your co-worker tells you he/she has eight body piercings but none
    is visible.

    You can't remember... is dope illegal?

    You've been to more than one baby shower that has two mothers and
    a sperm donor.

    You have a very strong opinion on where your coffee beans are
    grown, and can taste the difference between Sumatran and Ethiopian.

    A really great parking space can move you to tears.

    You are thinking of taking an adult class but you can't decide
    between yoga, conversational Italian or building your own website.

    A man in full leather regalia and crotchless chaps gets on the bus
    and you don't notice.

    You are genuinely surprised when you meet someone who was actually
    born in Sydney.

    Your hairdresser is straight; your plumber is gay, and your Avon
    lady is a drag queen.
