Yeah I know, hence the frown, i was just being stupid. Perth is a joke for how expensive it is. Great place, but Christ it's expensive. I know Sydney is higher on the list but I believe that's purely based on rent and mortgage factors there. Everything is substantially more expensive here after having spent plenty of time in both places. It's easy to find a good cheap feed and drinks in Sydney, nearly impossible here.

Adelaide isn't that bad as a place, it's nice around Glenelg, from the 3 days I spent there anyway. Place has a nice vibe.

Yea and we don't seem to have to deal with all these natural disasters in the outer states, like last year when your half was on fire and the other was under water.

The fires here weren't really that big of a deal to be honest. With respect to the peeps who lost homes, it was tiny compared to the Vic fires and the Canberra ones 10 or years ago. I was living in Canberra at the time and it was 10x worse.

BTW Australia's cost of living is WAY higher in most parts so of course minimum wage is a lot higher.

Okay so... I start Monday. I had a choice of Picker/puller vs sorter and chose picker. Sorter is mostly standing still and I'd rather walk 10-15 miles a day and lose weight and be doing more activity than stand in the same spot all day looking over orders. So basically I have the scanner gun running around like a mad man grabbing the packages and delivering to the sorters.

I hope I made the right choice! Sorter would have been easier but I truly want to lose some weight and TBH standing 8 hours is a lot more painful than walking 8 hours to me.

I think you're probably correct. Our bodies were made to walk.
