    Which idioms of yours has your partner acquired?

    Mine has recently adopted the term “bugger” in the context of “those kittens are cheeky little buggers”.

    Also in frustration. Bugger, while waiting impatiently for a friend who fails to arrive on time.

    We used to teach at the same school. As you know, some words are used in Thai that wouldn't be used in polite company when translated to English, like 'prik kee nu'.

    One morning in rainy season we arrived soaked in the staffroom and the headmaster said 'It's raining pretty heavily out there'.

    My wife replied 'It's absolutely pissing it down'.

    The whole household has seem to adopted the term, "take a dump" in reference to relieving themselves from a number two.

    No surprise there.


    Not really an idiom, but my secretary has mastered the use of "fine". As in "we will not discuss this further, but you will live to regret this".

    My little rose bud has picked up a few;

    Says "What the hell" "Holy Crap" and my favorite is when some driver does something stupid she calls them a Dildo.

    Gotta Love it, my western influence...

    "Silly monkey!" and "Have a banana" she got from me. "It's up to you" [but you're dead if you make the wrong choice] she picked up all by herself.

    I've never told the GF a direct meaning of this word, but she hears it a lot so I do too now

    "Stupid Fok", but it doesn't sound offensive when she says it.
