#26: Sarah Hayes

Furst Media colleague, 2005-2007

Sarah Hayes is who I think of when I think of the most Australian person I've ever known. She had a drawling aussie country accent so thick you'd need to subtitle it if she was in a movie, and the dry, dusty 'she'll be right' sense of humour to match.

Aussies love nicknames, and Sarah was the master in our office. Nicko, Davo, Jezza, Stevo, Robbo, no-one could escape. She called me 'Tobaroo' and I felt a little bit proud.
