quicko: things i'm getting really tired of australians saying to me

--Are you Canadian?
--Well, you certainly still have your accent!
--Who'd you vote for?

The first one is because we know that Canadians can get rather peeved at being mistaken for being USA citizens. I avoid it by simply asking, "Where are you from?"

As for no. 3, this is because we expect to vote when we're overseas unless either (a) the election has been called too close to the date of the poll to get a postal vote or (b) we've been out of the country for so long that the electoral commission has decided that we're ineligible to vote. However, it seems that it's not actually compulsory for us to have our names ticked off the electoral role (turn up to vote / do a postal vote) if we're overseas.
