A new symbol for working class Australia has now been discovered, the green text bubble.
Much like a tan in the 1800s, once viewed as a symbol for working class, manual, agricultural labour; the green text bubble is being viewed by some as the 21 century marker for being working class.
While some are saying the connection between phone choice and class standing is a bit far-fetched, much of the Australian public also agrees with this idea.
“If I’m talking to a guy and I see a green text, there’s a good chance that I will stop talking, it’s so povo.” Explained Sarah Homles(22), A French Quarter “Creative”.
“Yeah I can’t lie, I only hire blokes with green text on my construction site, they’ve just got more grit y’know?” Said Paul Leeroy (55), proud man of working class heritage that owns a construction company.
When Betoota Advocate reporters were able to track down an Android user, they were met with a frantic, unhinged rant on why Android is actually the sensible choice in phones, and were unable to get a solid response on their working class connection.
“IT’S SO MUCH BETTER I CAN’T BELIEVE YOU STILL USE AN IPHONE IT’S OVERPRICED ANDROID IS BETTER IN EVERYWAY I DON’T THINK YOU UNDERSTAND THAT I CAN INCREASE MY STORAGE SIZE JUST BY CHANGING THE SD CARD YOU CAN’T DO THAT WITH AN IPHONE-” said the crazed Android owner frothing at the mouth.
While the Advocates reporters were left rattled by the encounter, they are back to safety and were unharmed.
