You are all dreadfully uncouth.

It is breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, supper (this being a late evening repast).

Edit tea is a hot drink

Savages.

Unfortunately living in Canada ( US lite...)you get inundated with wanky phrases

Awesome has lost its meaning ; to the point that something quite mundane can be described as awesome ; coffee etc ( caawfee )

Rock my world etc

I miss the effect of the word "twat"

Can you be more 'Pacific'...(also tw*ts on message boards who do'...'for effect - 'I'll get my coat'...).

Rapid edit: I didn't notice your use of '...', which is perfectly acceptable and was refering to one of my own on another thread. Tw*tted.

Maybe no quite a "wanky phrase" and i know it shouldnt wind me up, but "not actual game footage" in adverts for computer games. The whole point of an advert for a game is to show you what you can do in it

"Helicopter View"

"In Real Terms"

"Footsoldier" (makes me cringe that one)

East Stand (naw it's the feckin Celtic end for us auld C*nts)

West Stand (naw it's the feckin Rangers end for us auld C*nts)

"Ditto" (was good in the movie Ghost, but not in general conversation)

Oooft. Agreed with just about everything on this thread until I read two of yours. Celtic end and Rangers end my arse. I suspect that I'm every bit as auld as you, but it's the east and west stands!!! In fact I'd put Rangers end and Celtic end on my list of annoying phrases.

Anyway, my offering is the classic Davie Provanism "vey decent", as in "that was a very decent cross". Get yersel tae feck Davie. Doesn't he realise he's basically saying that cross was absolutely alright.

The worst one for me at the moment is "reach out". As in I am going to reach out to others on this...just means speak to or get in touch.

Gets right on my tits.

I'm in a unique position where all of my friends here and including my wife are speaking like me instead of me picking up their words. Two big sayings that are common now in my local pubs and my house are the word and the term for sake. Also, pubs are pubs now and not bars. Most people realise they are doing it now and stare at me when they know where they have picked it up from. :-))

Pretty sure that they are all also regularly using : 'coo', 'tractor', fermer', 'ploughed field', and '####in Saints'. Pure speculation on my part, admittedly.

It wasn't even that two years ago. But now on a Saturday night it's not uncommon to hear friends of mine going the whole hog and saying it outright.

"niggah"

I inadvertently watched a fight on you tube between a bunch of fat white Americans in a garage... They were all calling each other "niggahs" while knocking out of each other. Maybe it is the end of times after all.
