Don't Take Yourself Too Seriously
One of the first lessons I learned upon arrival in Australia was not to take myself too seriously. Coming from America, we tend to be a little more uptight. We don't even know it but it's in our general culture. Australians enjoy 'ripping' people off, and that's not stealing it's giving one a good natured well intended hard time. Aussies will tell you that if they're not giving you a hard time, that's when you need to be worried. It's part of friendships here. It took me a little while but I really do enjoy the humour here and actively engage in the banter.
