    ^I think it's Uber in the UK. Grab (taxis, grab food, etc) is in SE Asia & owned by a Malaysian company.

    It looks dreary in Scotland. But I'm glad you got your full English (Scottish) breakfast!

    Bolt is the one you want in the UK and much of Europe. Usually quite a bit cheaper than an Uber even.

    Live on the wild side though and download both apps.

    You sound like my mum.

    I'll bet you get some funny looks in those truckers' canteens when you pull your M&S quiche out.

    You raving homo.

    ^ I've heard that those truckers like to pull out each other's 'quiches' when they get together.

    Mendy, a bit like your biz the mining/ exploration is full of un predictable shit and whenever there were delays or fuckups out of my control that were beneficial to me I took full advantage. Eg. Qantas Kununurra to Perth 20 minutes in I see out the windows 1 engine on fire. Told the gay bloke about it then the captain came on Nd said sorry were turning around and going to Darwin, beauty, never been to Darwin so saw it for 6 nights on Qantas, motel and food on them . Enjoyed Darwin

    I've never heard it used outside of Manchester, but Wiki simply describes it as used in various Scottish and northern English dialects.

    Surprised to hear you say it.

    I don't know.

    I saw a couple of rabbits and some mole hills, but nothing else.

    Funnily enough, it came up as Yorkshire slang when I did another google after posting this.

    At least I didn't have to suffer the shame of seeing a fellow Englisher writing "mom" in this post.

    He is a bit of a unit and would take some grabbing hold of I reckon especially on the way back dripping in all that sweat and those smack heads would probably look at Mendy with his Asda bags full of bland cheese and deplete of alcohol and most likely do a quick risk and reward assessment and target the returning tourists with the suitcases of dirty laundry or the SAS lone wolf and his kit bag
