I don't know whether this person is trying to be funny and failing, or is genuinely asking a really stupid questionWhen I move to New Zealand, how important will it be to purchase a good pair of wellies?
This was posted in a "Wellington" community, which is a city in New Zealand, and wellies is short for Wellingtons, which are called Gumboots over here.
So there are a few potential stupids in this post.
Not realizing Wellington is a city in New Zealand and think the community is dedicated to gumboots/wellies/Wellingtons.
Or they are actually moving here and seriously are asking if they will require gumboots in New Zealand, which they might.....if they were living on a farm like in most other countries.
Or full of fail on a joke about Wellies/Wellington/gumboots
EDIT: so this person is actually moving to wellington, i should've read her profile before posting or something. but i still stand by that it is a silly question to ask. i would hate to be ignorant about a country i am moving too. new zealand isn't all dirt roads and mud huts believe it or not
