The etiquette of ‘shouting’
According to Australion drinking etiquette, it is decidedly poor form to drink by one’s self!
This first rule of social intercourse gave rise to the peculiar Australian tradition of ‘shouting’, or buying drinks for all others in close proximity, possibly in an attempt to entice them to join company.
The unspoken, but well known rules of ‘shouting’ are:
- dont accept a ‘shout’ unless you are prepared to follow suit in your turn
- never upgrade your drink of preference on another’s ‘shout’
- keep pace with others in company - dont ‘drag the chain’
- maintain your turn - avoid at all cost, being reminded that it is your ‘shout’
- keep the ‘shouts’ income and gender neutral
