Americans nicking the 's' off Maths and adding it to the end of Sport.


The word 'guy'. If you're British, any one of the following is acceptable:

Bloke
Fella
Chap
Geezer
Lad

It's never 'this guy' or 'a guy'. Everytime I hear it I feel like I'm in an episode of Friends. "This guy was like, totally rude."

Even worse is somebody addressing a group of people with "Hey guys, can I just grab your attention for a quick 5?"

'Uni'. F*ck right off.
I'm glad they're charging you outrageous fees, you c*nt.....

When a student leaves 'uni' for the misery of unemployment, will they call it 'unem'?

Apparently about 98% of people under 25 or so annoy you then by saying 'uni'...

I think this one must be generational. Is that a word?

I find guy or guys completely acceptable.

Fella on the other hand is totally mockney and gets right up my nose particularly when used to address someone......alright fella? Piss off you Danny Dyer mockney wannabe!

Nothing personal dude....

Mark Saggers on Talksport. Just because you shout your point in a loud manner, does not mean that the point you are making is going to be taken any more seriously. Mainly because your point is non-sensical anyway.

Or dropping the H from herb so it becomes 'erb. Sorry but you're recommending what I should add to this chicken dish not skinning up some chronic with your homies on the project whilst listening to Run DMC

When the whole of Selhurst Park used to sing Eagles Eagles to Amazing Grace on a floodlit midweek game gave me goosebumps it was incredible.

And the New Yorker's habit of dropping the H from human so it becomes youman.

Yep completely agree. If anyone uses 'fella' or 'gezzer' it just sounds so unnatural and like you're trying to be someone you're not. (I should say not everyone sounds stupid saying these words, just the majority - i.e. mockneys).

I know everyone will already know that it's impossible to get the right timer setting, I understand that bit - first round the toaster's on a cold start, second round the toaster's already warmed up. Obvious they're going to come out different. But why do they NEVER toast both sides of the bread the same amount???

Dropping toast on the floor buttered side up, making liars of us all.

If you're watching your weight, don't have a dessert.

Most of those Weight Watchers meals and soups are a con. They're basically half portions with the same calories as normal ready meals.

Getting to the checkout after 10 minutes and then another staff member comes over with some bags or something and stops for a chat with the cashier slagging off either their boss or another customer while you stand there waiting. I know your names Sandra and Jackie, next time I see the man in the cheap suit I'm grassing you see how you like that:D

Hmm i kinda hear you on this. It all started when Neighbours came to british tv in 1987 and Scott and Charlene (kylie) starting banging on about 'going to uni'. After that it's been well and truly at loose in the vocabulary.

The irony being everyone actually at 'uni' at the time would have been watching neighbours religiously every day - nobody else would have had the time for daytime TV.

I think you're crediting Channel 10 script writers with an abbreviation that's been around a lot longer than you suggest.

I was way to stoned to turn the TV on, and everyone else in the house was face down in their own porridge.

No way were english kids saying uni before neighbours. Or maybe it was Home and Away, but Lance wasn't that type of kid.
