When I went to Australia in 87 they called me a “wog” (which means someone of Arab descent) but our Aussie friends knew no better because they called all Mediterranean people; like Italians, Greeks, or Cyps, wogs! :)

We had the darker hair and olive skin complexion so we were “wogs” to them.

Anyway, it’s never easy being away from home for *all* of us.

I will never know because nobody says anything to your face but the fact that I would always end up with a bundle of failed applications before actually landing a job, may be an indicator.

What is it with you guys?
You do realize this isn't the UK?

A little advise for the foreign fu**s who think this a EU benefit free for all.
It aint.

Over here, you gotto earn your bread.
If you can't, you move onto collapsing socialist states like the UK.

Kapish??

At least you are eligible.You have rights. Something I wish I have too. I would much prefer that they rejected my application because I am not fit for the job or I did not meet all the qualifications rather than nothing at all. But anyway this whining of mine has gone too far. I am just frustrated and disappointed that a qualified person like me was denied because of my nationality. But you know, its your country not mine. I am just a lowly foreign student. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I am well aware of that Sir. But how can I do that if I were denied to work for that bread? :?: :?: :?:

The people are of the island.
That means you need to get with the program and assimilate with the locals... or get lost.
They aint gonna change millenia of civilization to suite your superiority complex.

Is that the *only* application you were waiting for because I would apply by the dozens… :)

You do realize it’s a numbers game; much like cracking onto women, sooner or later you’ll crack onto one that *does* like you! :wink: :lol:
