    I was thinking through some global persona scenarios today.

    However, instead manifesting as bumping in to someone.

    If you bump in to an Aussie he will say "you right mate?"

    You bump into an Aussie who has been drinking bundy rum and he will say "you wanna go mate, I'll ****en smash ya"

    You bump into a Canadian and he will apologize to you.

    A Dutch man will walk backwards into you, bump you and knock you over and expect you to apologize to them.


    It sounds a far stretch but that is how the Dutch are

      If you bump into a person from Redfern, they will likely stab you.

      If you bump into a German in Australia, they will apologize relentlessly. If you bump into a German in Germany, you better have a good explanation.

      If you ever bump into me, be sure to say G'day :)

        I'm that ugly that I take random bumping as affection, and old enough to be grateful.
