A whinge is the aussie word for someone who compains often or loudly about anything & everything! LOL Us aussies have words for everything!
A person with red hair often has the nick name "bluey" for example. Garbo is the slang word for the man who collects the rubbish once a week......."Mossie" is a pesky little mosquito who bite is not pleasant!
Blowies - are huge flies that find our BBQ within seconds of the meat starting to sizzle on the Barby (BBQ)
I could go on forever! We tend to shorten names...or change them I have another friend called Sally....I call her Sals, I have a niece called Kelly....who we call Kels...
I could go on but I don't want to bore you too much!
love, hugs & cheers
