when you go out as a yoof, knock on the door of your mate's house, then go out together on your merry way.
probably due to the advent of cellular technology, as well as me being an old fart.
but I'm probably 10 years older than you or something and I've never heard this phrase.
I guess you just used to call round, although generally I'd have phoned first, I suppose.
there's loads of variants, see below.
and played computer games.
seems to be a weekly occurrence in my life now, how do the rest of the UK ever express themselves with such a limited dialect?
but I know someone who has
"call for you" instead
like playing rugby
*no need for the word "for" there
either way, it's surely one or the other not both
"I'll call on you later"
"I'll chap you later"
thought you didn't chap?
I retract my offer to chap.
fucking knew that "I don't chap" stuff was pish
just trying to be the big man
'come for'. What time are you coming for me, claire?, is what I would say. I would never say it now but then alas I am no longer An Innocent and neither I daresay is Claire.
when my friend lived in the flat upstairs, I'd always 'I'll just knock on' before going out.
Not everyone knew what I meant.
I'd shoot you on sight at the front gate, even if you were my mate. Always call ahead
I used to be so siable and would welcome a surprise visitor, but now I'm like a highly suspicious crabbit hermit. It's annoying me and needs to change, we should embrace spontaneity (once my cleaner starts and I find somewhere to bury the bodies.)
sign of a proper friendship.
on my old estate people used to "go in for" each other. when I moved to a posh area we had arranged times to go down the lawn tennis and squash club.
(weirdly when I went to secondary school people took to asking if their pals were coming out "to play". also started saying going "up" places. like "comin out to play up scotstoun after school?"
to see if southerners recognise it.
Eeeh, ba 'eck I'm just going to put this vest in me mangle
tell them I'm coming round at about Leeds
