Greetings,

I prefer the words folks, blokes, girls, women and with a full blown passion I detest "guys", especially when females are in the group :twisted:

I love the north east expression "there's a rabbit off" when something is wrong.

TTFN

Grumpy. :lol:

Don’t head darn sarf Hugh. Even in our mid 60’s my wife and I are ‘guys’.....or maybe we just go to the wrong places.
It does make us feel a bit less old though and seems better when our 30 something neighbour calls us that.

Back in the early 70's I'd only ever heard Richard Pryor use the term WTF, and it was meant literally as a question. (As in maybe - What the F*** are you going to do about it ? or WTF does that mean )
Now more often than not, for the younger generation it just seems to mean "I don't understand " or "I have absolutely no comprehention of anything 'cause I ain't learnt sh*t about nothing yet." 8-)

Watching the snooker yesterday and as Ronnie O'Sullivan knocked in a long red the commentator said "well shiver me timbers".

To use a term noted earlier, WTF?

"I'll go to the foot of our stairs"...an expression indicating surprise that I only ever heard in Leicestershire.

another Leicester-ism

"Well, that's pissed on your chips" indicating one's total defeat in an argument, or another irrecoverable failure.
