Darren Tomlinson spent the first 40 years of his humble life in the vast, but ultimately forgiving Queensland desert – where he learned to say please and thank you.
However, like most young his age, curiosity got the better of him.
Rather than falling for the many flash ringer’s tale of Europe, complete with a smattering of broken French and a wry smile, Darren said he thoroughly enjoy his time in Thailand.
“Oi but, they could pretty much understand English, so it was sweet,” he said.
“Yeah, but nah. Phuket is our language is seriously ‘Fuck it’ – which is pretty much the attitude of the caste of Australian who goes there.”
Trying his hardest to answer questiong between fits of Phuket-induced laughter, Darren remarked that he’s cracked the joke seven times since being back.
All seven have declined to provide comment.
More to come.
