Getting Used to Life Down Under: Shopping barefoot and more

I'm approaching three years of living Down Under (Australia and New Zealand). Time sure does have wings... There aren't too many things to complain about living on this end of the globe but there are definitely a number of things that I'm still getting used to.  

Cars vs Pedestrians
Pedestrians have to yield to cars at all times - in parking lots, crossing laneways, you name it... It becomes quite clear super quickly that drivers don't have much regard for pedestrians. Street lights tend to work a bit differently as a result. For example, right hand turns in Canada are generally permitted once you've given way to pedestrians. Down Under, pedestrians have to wait out lights for  left hand turns before they're permitted to cross. I've found this difference to be very hard to get used to and not one I particularly like.

They need these signs in more places
