It's Australia Day today. I love being an Aussie, but one aspect of our culture gets my goat.
Tall Poppy Syndrome.
I'm certainly not advocating worshipping celebrities and talented people, but just because someone is good at something doesn't mean they're arrogant.
I wish Aussies would stop using jealousy disguised as 'keeping people humble' to cut talented individuals or groups down to size.
Why can't we just say 'well done', instead of trying to dig up dirt?
