    Again, that is all the humor we seem to have

    But what do mean taking the piss out of strangers, how?
    Probably like you describe in New York.... I can go into a shop here that I have never been into before and someone behind the counter might start taking the piss out of something I am buying... would never see that in NZ... too polite... 55. But at work or with mates in NZ... yes of course... a piss-take fest.... but piss-taking went to a new level once I arrived in England.
    My only experience was in a pie making factory managing the gravy team

    Well they've been miserable for many thousands of years before America was discovered. Maybe that's the distinction. It's every bloke, woman and child for themselves right out of the crib. There's no grace period.
    I just girl in bar. Buy me one dink?....

    Maybe. When I left New York for California in 1976. They did not appreciate the level of piss take I was reaping on those granola heads....
