I met an Aussie guy in a boutique shop last weekend. i needed a favor for buying a jumper (jacket);

So, I asked them, “Have you come to buy clothes?”

The men replied (with a gentle smile), “I am not here to f**k Spiders, lol.”

And it was an unexpected reaction I have ever heard. After a while, I got that it is an Aussie local slang meaning, “I am already doing that.”

Mates, Aussie People like fun in everyday life, and we can notice it in their slang words too, that’s pretty cool, isn’t it??
