Apologies if this has been has posted before but do any of you use military words or phrases in civvy strasse? I have been out 9 yrears and still refer to my wardrobe as my locker and fold my clothes military style. Sad I know.
Oh yes, guilty as charged. I also have let slip with some "Army"style expressions to describe how bad things are such as,
"This account's likliehood of generating profit before the end of this quarter is lower than a submarine's sh!thouse.", or
"You have two hopes of getting that proposal out today, and one is a dead, celebrity golfer."
I also refer to going to the work catering establishment as the cookhouse and that I am off to get some scoff; mundane household chores is admin; someone whose personal hygiene is not what it should be is a grotbag and ugly women are still hippo-croca-pig-dogs!!
"Move yourself spunk bubble" when in the way.
"You're in your own time now" while doing homework.
"You've shi't out" when asking for money.
"Dig in" while out for a jog.
When get a takeaway its from the schnelli (chippy) or the choggywallah (curryhouse).
My wife likes being told to "Brace yourself, I'm going to touch you"
My dog is "as smart as a carrot" in his new collar.
The hamster is "Marking Time" on his wheel again.
Bemused shopkeepers love to search their shelves for "Dhobi-dust" while I wait.
