I spend a fair amount of time out on the road in my ute (pickup) seeing suppliers or customers, and picking up or delivering jobs. I sit in a lot of yards with huge semi trailers waiting to be loaded or unloaded.
There is a fraternity of sorts that is nice. Everyone in the yard is part of it for the time of the visit, from the truckies regardless of the size of truck, to store men and forklift operators. Even if you've never been to that particular place before, you are immediately welcomed into a very blokey world of swearing, joking and laughter. It's blue collar drivers club. An Aussie accent is a bonus, not to exclude others, but the use of colloquialisms is thick on the ground.
"G'day Mate. Look, we've had a problem and your jobs Gunna be bout 20 minutes. Press f**ked up 'n we hadda getta sparky out"
"No worries mate, probly the heat. Gunna be a f**cken stinka I reckon"
"My Oath! She'll be hot all right. Offer ya a coffee but the stuff tastes like shit"
"Fair Dinkum? S'no good if ya can't getta decent cuppa for smoko"
"Ah bugger it. Too hot for coffee. Get a cold one on the way home this Arvo and she'll be right"
I love it.
