Getting ‘rigged’ up, ‘riggy’ or ‘in a rig’.

Sometimes I’ll call my darling partner ‘Jamie Mardy’ when she’s in a bad mood.
Weirdly enough it doesn’t seem to make her mood improve

What I’m taking from this is a lot of places use have a cob on for being angry, but none of them would agree on what a cob is if you’re talking about a bread product.

Used to hear ‘eggy’ quite a bit growing up in Oxford

I also remember ‘have a sken’ for ‘have a look’ and ‘keks’ for trousers (still use this tbf)
