Going off on a tangent here after seeing the word cludgie up above, but has anyone here ever heard the saying "That'll be chocolate"? Meaning "aye, that'll be right"?
 


Yes my family use that expression and have done as long as I can remember. Unsurprisingly I’ve not heard it used by anyone else.

Twenty seven shillings for a newspaper? Jings, crivens and help ma boab!

I still judge the price of everything compared to what it was when I first started having to budget my pocket money,

Crips - 30p

Mars Bar or similar confectionary - 30p

Milky Way - 12p

Taz/Freddo - 5p

Fritter roll - 40p

 

Somehow I am still shocked when things cost more than this.

"That's not music, that's just noise", is definitely not a phrase I uttered the other day whilst my daughters were listening to some current chart nonsense. Nope, definitely not!

I may or may not have referred to the music as a 'record' too.

Thank you.


You just listen to the musical stylings of a far right bawsack?

The Bloods reckon that way too expensive.

I only buy music and films on CD. I stream music in work, though. 

I also have one of those egg cutters. How else do folk slice an egg? :wacko:

You are firmly still living in the year 1690.

Still using shoelaces? :lol: You absolute heathen.

I've been wearing these to work for the past year.

Never felt freer in my whole life.

 

As well as being a double-knotter, I still wear socks.  Going out without any and rolling the trousers up a little just to really show off the lack of sockage just strikes me as a cry for help.

Eta: I also have one of those egg slicers (inherited) and haven't moved on from CDs / DVDs other than streaming music.

Always ask people behind tills 'can I pay by card?'

You can pay by card bloody everywhere nowadays but I can't shake the habit.

I suspect the majority of contributors to this thread will be from Fife or outwith the West in general. I'm 100% sure Fifers still have box TV's and VHS for their entertainment. 

Best thing ever moving to the west coast to get to some modern civilisation when I was a wean.
