Which do you prefer?
I went for tits.
I am always delighted to learn about the dialects spoken by those in a lower social strata than me.
The education system in the country hasn't been the same since they abolished compulsory Latin.
It is usually me that points out people's misuse of Latin and Greek plurals.
Is this another one of those slang phrases you poor people use? Which social stratum do you occupy, young man?
which I really shouldn't have been because they just make me angry, and it was about a pair of tits who wanted to move from South East London to the East London. They were "creatives" that worked in advertising and wanted somewhere "edgy" and with a "scene" and everytime they talked I just wanted to throw things. The women was like "I guess we're a bit odd, because we want to move further into London SNAR FNAH FNAH FNAH I figure we have a good three or four years left of enjoying London" as if that was a given that after a certain point in your life you just want to move to fucking Surrey. I didn't watch anymore of it but I hope they ended up in a rat-infested mid-terrace near Hackney Wick with drug dealers for neighbours.
They looked at four-bed family homes (around the £600,000 mark!) in South Woodford, Wanstead and Woodford Green (oddly enough, they looked at the house right next door to where my mum grew up).
They then also looked for an investment property for them, a studio flat that would be out of the price range of most first-time buyers. They went to Hackney Wick, Stratford and Leytonstone.
I literally left the room in a huff around the time they were looking at the second of the studio flats. My girlfriend couldn't understand why I was so annoyed by them - and to be honest, I'm not sure I could put my finger on it exactly - but they were massively winding me up.
"What's the yield? Oh, only 5.6% /I don't really like it, but it would be cool to buy an investment in an up and coming area" etc. RRRAAAA
Urgh. When a home-counties-loving, Clapham stereotype thinks somewhere is ‘trendy,’ you know it’s over and about to be overrun by bellends.
i'd say it's pretty standard for a middle class couple to want to move out of an inner city when they start having a family
tits or I'll shag you up the arse

Documentary looking at the choices facing young women in the UK who live at home with their parents, but have recently come into a sum of money via an unexpected inheritance. Breast enhancement so that they can emulate their WAG idols? Or put a deposit on a starter flat in the East End of that London?
