    Why, in Australia, does 'yeah, nah...' mean 'no', and 'nah, yeah' mean 'yes'?

    With regard to road rage, there's been quite a bit of research done on the phenomenon. I can't be bothered looking for it right now, but there's something relating to the idea of 'personal space' extending to your entire vehicle, combined with the fact that you're personally removed from other drivers as a PP mentioned (in much the same way as you're more likely to abuse someone online than in person).

    Random thought: I keep a very large hairy animal in my house, with no particular function, and somehow this seems normal. She's currently laying in my backyard watching birds. We feed her, look after her etc. in order that she can do this :P

    Oh don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not immune to the occasional road rage outburst myself.. and that's what got me thinking, I'd never yell or swear at a stranger outside my car, but behind the wheel the beast is unleashed

    On road rage, I might have a mumble to myself but there is really only one time I actually, no twice actually, that I have gotten out of my car in anger. The first time was when an older lady ran is of the road. We were in a big white duck off 4x4 and she was in a small sedan and how the heck she never saw us as she was changing lanes I don't know. She also happened to be going to the same place we were so I jumped out of the car full steam to tell her how blind she is and how we had to try really hard not to slam into a concrete barrier because of her but she took off into that shop never to be seen again. How disappointed I was! And the second time was when dd2 was just a teeny tiny baby and a car rammed up the back of us while we were stationery. Dd2 head got whipped her forward BECAUSE she was rear facing. That driver was lucky I got shunted across the tracks before the train came so she was stuck on the other side of the crossing!

    I take it as "yeah I hear what you're saying but nah I think you're wrong / I disagree" and "nah you're right, but yeah I'm gunna do what I want anyway" :-)

    OMG. I hope no one thinks that of me when I do it.

    My local (well close to kids school) never has enough manned registers. I have 5 kids in there with me I want out not to wait 30 mins in a long line with kids begging for chocolate and lollipops that tease them at counter.

    We are the same, never enough "manned" registers and when they are the 15 year olds put my paper with the milk... or bread and milk together... or bananas and potaotes... grrr. Id rather do it myself.

    I go through the self-serve with a full trolley. It's quicker, and it keeps DD entertained. She's happy to watch and pass me items at the self-selve, but if I waited for 5 minutes at a manned register she'd be getting pretty cranky.
