All right, let's compromise - maybe Dobby's Canadian. Can anyone with a long memory remember if there's ever been a Canadian with an overactive sense of entitlement getting narked at the responses here?

Narked enough to leave for a few months, perhaps?

<i>I wonder why so many people think Dobby is a "he".</i>

Well, look at the latest photo in "his" profile — assuming that's really Dobby, of course. ;-)

Just in case anyone is wondering the photo is of Harry Styles

Maybe the Dobmeister is Taylor Swift in disguise - eh Dobby?

Harry is from Cheshire, which was my fist instinct on the location of Dobby's "vacation flat".

I also could not see a teen boy wasting this kind of time winding up a bunch of 50-something Americans.

Well spotted, sofarsogood! One or two of Dobby's previous profile pictures were of Harry Styles as well, and can be seen in Google Images.

"Life is what you make it anywhere you go.>

Then why shell out all the cash to travel? Might as well stay home."

Well, that wasn't what I meant, but make of it whatever you will.

I got your point michigan. If it helps. I think most people here understood what you meant as well.

so good you posted twice, Patrick!

no, I'm not wound up.

Sad that someone is wasting their time like this, but not wound up.

"Anne" + "Wound up" is an oxymoron!

Are posts are 100% true. I am 18 years old. Why would I keep this going since May 2012? I'm American (in case anyone is wondering). And what ''British useages'' am I using? And when did I say I had little interaction with other people??? You're all just making stuff up.

But anyway I change my mind about coming back next year. I might get a flat in Australia What do you think??

Btw is it rude to let someone skip you in line? I didn't have my money ready so I let this other guy skip me, when I said he could skip me he looked over at me like I had two heads.

Maybe he didn't know what "skip me" meant

"a flat" would be a "British useage"

Dobby I just can't resist this. Pleeease try the flat in Australia. I believe there are some very nice ones in Alice Springs and Darwin is good as well.

TipsyGus, a very good recommendation, but I think that Oodnadatta or Marble Bar would be better.

I am not familiar with the term "skip me." I would say I let someone "go ahead of me." Must be some regional American term.
