From the mouths of Johnny foreigner.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Being well travelled army types, I am sure we have all inculcated some choice or typically British phrases upon the minds of foreigners.

    So what is the most incongruous or bizarre and unexpected English phrase you have heard a foreigner use or have taught them?

    My favourite comes from the mouth of my twin brother's 6 foot tall Russian born, ethnic German model girlfriend.

    I complained to her one day that I had phoned knowing she was in and yet there was no answer.

    She responded ' Vell, I heard ze telephone ringing, but I couldn't be arsed to get up and answer it’.

    Well done girl! I pmsl.

    I have also heard her say to my brother 'G*****, you are az lazy as shuck vater' which is 200% 'Norn Iron'.

    Has anyone else heard any amusing vernacular from the mouths of foreigners?
  2. We had a "Facilities" chap, (the guy who mends the buildings), who I used to refer to as a w@nker. I work with mostly women and there were only a few that I had broken the news to about what that word meant.

    Several months passed and I get a heads up from one of the gals "in the know" that the facilities chap was wandering around calling all the other women w@nkers.

    I took him on one side and asked him if he know what the word meant... He didn't, I explained... The color red was never so red... :lol:
  3. When I first took Mrs Bstard who is a Thai German ethnic home to meet my Mam her English was not good, she did tell my Mam to "Have a good sh1t." when she mentioned that she was off to the khazi.

    My tea burned the inside of my nostrils
  4. arabic student would ask me how i was in very good English and i would reply "awright" is strange to hear an arab talking with a jock accent even more strange is an asian talking like a glaswegian Navid "your a bawbag"
  5. You know, on some mail order bride sights you can get full thai, or even ones that speak English fluently. You should send her back and get a full working order model
  6. Liar, liar, pants on fcuking fire.
  7. I was on chat earlier, and some female person of german origin said : Ach, i am off to the naafi, i haff run out of fags'......

    (sorry sweetheart, i p*ssed myself when you came out with that)
  8. That is quality.

    Well done whatever squaddie has 'educated ' her.

    In Kenya in 97, there was a local walking around that would say he was a cockney w*nker, in a perfect cockney accent. Made me laugh every time I heard him speak.
  15. Miss expat always sends me to work with "laters geezer"
    And answers my phone to my brother "alwhite mate "

    I used to work with an ex black watch/police officer who told me of one African village they came across all the villagers spoke Glaswegian slang.
