Astonished that many DiSers haven’t heard the word ‘nesh’ before. Especially you s_a_d.

Still laugh every time an English person on here says “jobbie”.

I too was unfamiliar with it in spite of co-opting stuff that Northerners say into my every day bant stock. Words such as

Radge - being pissed off
Rangooned - drunk

And the like.

When you say local, where exactly is it local to?

i met a man who claimed to be from the midlands
is this a real place??

East Midlands and bits of South Yorkshire

In my experience


#9

Yes.


#10

Suspected that might be the case.

Used to go all over the East Mids at work, and there’s a few of that sort who work here. Never heard it.


#11

Bullshit word.

When we’re back to tribal living in the next 5-6 years I’m going to ban its use.
