what the heck is this supposed to mean?
you’re ugly but you keep me safe?!

oh right yeah that makes sense
We don’t have this phrase in Northamptonshire
It’s about as polite as saying “were you born in a barn”. I bloody hate that
Are you a serial non door closer Rob

I’ve heard it, but I’ve got no idea what it means.

Give yer arse a chance
really appreciate that you’ve written that how it should be said, very nice

Oh how he laughed.
