Thank you so much for answering my question!!!:biggrin: That is sorta what I thought but wanted to be sure. There are so many phrases that are different than ours and some words that have totally different meanings. Some words that are considered "bad" there don't mean anything here. If I said "[email protected]@dy" here, someone would look for the first-aid kit...LOL. I love it, no one knows what I'm saying!!!
Hi Pam we just had the best holiday ..ooops I mean vacation lol...in america and we stayed with a wonderful american family. We had so much fun and hours and hours of laughter learning each others phrases...even now we can't stop saying 'awesome'!lol
OH MY!!! No wonder the answer was PM'd. Although I am still not above using them now that I know what they really mean...lol
"Are You Being Served" is my all time fave comedies but I also love "Open All Hours", "Last of the Summer Wine", "As Time Goes By", oh my can't forget "Ab. Fab.", and "Keeping Up Appearances". There are so many great ones. We have a local station that shows these every Saturday & Sunday night. I have been watching them all for 10 years now, still tape each one and enjoy them as much as I did the first time I saw them.
Here in Texas we say "that don't gee & haw" which means that just won't work. When training a horse you teach them to obey voice commands and gee means to turn left and haw means to turn right. Woa means to stop. Folks is family, all sneakers are called tennie (yes, tennie) shoes, and all soda pop is called coke even if you want a Dr. Pepper. If i say I want a coke someone will ask what kind. We don't wear nickers we wear panties, men wear wear underwear (boxers or jockeys) and babies wear diapers not nappies. There are so many differences because Texas isn't like the rest of the US much like the rest of the world.
We like our men in tight Wranglers (jeans), boots, a little bow-legged, smooth talking and good dancing. Yes we wear cowboy hats, drive pickup trucks, ride horses and talk slow enough to for Christmas to come around twice but damn we're fun. Yall (you guys) ask me whatever you want, this is cool learning about each other.
