British Man Calls Out Australians Over The Way They Commonly Talk To Each Other Every Day
| Last updated
A British man has called out the way Australians often speak to each other, having noticed the unusually aggressive way some great one another. Watch his TikTok video about the observation here:
TikToker Ryan Frank (@mvpryan) regularly shares videos on the platform about daily life in Australia after moving over from the UK.
In one of his latest posts, he explained just how ‘normal’ it is to swear Down Under, saying: “There is something actually wrong with Australians.
“I was at the shop, and this is how the two Aussies greeted each other.”
Stepping into character, he continued: “Hey John, you f***ing idiot! Hey Matty, you pr***!”
Ryan then said: “When I saw this, I thought they were going to fight. Then I realised it's actually normal to swear in Australia.
“If you were doing this in Africa or any other place your head would be chopped off.”
…And that’s coming from a Brit, a nation known for its love of expletives.
Commenting on the post, one person said: “We use swearing as a term of endearment.”
Another joked: “The harsher the swear word the closer the relationship," while a third said: “Yeah nah, it's when we're polite that you need to worry.”
A fourth said they were ‘encouraged to swear in our creative essays’ at high school, while someone else added: “I just swore at my teacher this year and she swore back.”
In another earlier video, Ryan had also pondered: “Australians are actually a different breed. What is wrong with these people?
“You can go anywhere else in the world, but Australia will be the only place where you find people swearing at each other as normal – bro, even their kids do this to their parents!”
And in one other post, he noted how Aussies use all sorts of random words to insult one another.
“Australian insults are not normal - like, anything can be an insult,” he said.
“[…] People will call you a muffin, a dingo, a kangaroo, a tool... how do you come up with these things?”
In the caption, Ryan added: “They be built different [I swear to God].”
