You know you are in Sydney when...

Your co-worker tells you they have 8 body piercings but none are
You make over $100,000 and still can't afford a house.
You take a bus and are shocked at 2 people carrying on a conversation in
You never bother looking at the train schedule because you know the
drivers have never seen it.
You can't remember. is dope illegal?
You have a very strong opinion where your coffee beans are grown and can
taste the difference between Sumatra and Ethiopian.
Getting a really great parking space can move you to tears. (This
happened to me at Manly last week- I still can't get over it!!!)
Your child's 3rd grade teacher has two pierced ears, a nose ring and is
named "Breeze." And, after telling that to a friend, they still need to
ask if the teacher is male or female.
A man walks on the bus in full leather regalia and crotchless chaps.
You don't notice.
You think any guy with a George Clooney haircut must be visiting from
the North Shore.
You spent more money on your coffee machine than on your washing
You spend $400 p. w. for your studio apartment with stunning
harbour/beach views and European appliances; and then spend a total of
40 hours each week there (37 of which you are sleeping).
You contemplate calling a cab from your home to where you managed to
park the car the night before.
You spend 30 minutes in a traffic jam next to a car with more power to
its speakers than its wheels.
You meet friends for coffee at 1am at your local Netcafe/ Laundramat/
Bookstore/ Bar/ Alternative healing centre and go for drinks and pool at
nine in the morning.
You go out each Saturday for breakfast and the paper at 3pm.
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 life.
Your cab driver was a micro-surgeon before he moved to Australia.

i sincerely hope not....the only time i have been to syderney the cabbie from the airport didnt know where the furamar hotel was. i really wouldnt want him poking around the insde of my head. especially after witnessing the arguement between him and head office over the issue. :oo1:

i think he may have been an investment banker instead. from bangladesh. where there are no investments. or banks. or anything much really. except taxi drivers who dont know the major hotels of their chosen city.

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
