The Aussie invasion

One big problem with the States at the moment: too many Aussies! Sitting down to lunch at The Cheesecake Factory on the top floor of Macy's (soup and salad hold the cheesecake for me)I could have been back in Melbourne, with the broad accents emanating from two tables. I heard them on the cable car that afternoon, in the lift this morning, and according to a lot of shop assistants we're buying up big all over town. Later in Walgreens looking for gloves, two blokes come towards me: "Nah mate- just buy a whole lotta t-shirts then ya got no washin'" & with the price of many things so much cheaper, and the AUD close to parity, it seems we're all doing that over here.
