Went to a white European lad who had been assaulted.
I asked what happened and I was told:

"He dissed ma *****. So I goes to him to get some respect but him and is blood slap me up. I gonna shank da...... etc etc."

His mobile rang and he then answered "Oh father! It was awful! I've been assaulted. The Paramedics are here now and I may need to go to hospital."

I asked, again for an explanation as to what had happened, but in real English please.
You should have smacked him in the head- sometimes people who suffer head trauma do have speech impediment...

I heard, the Scottish accent is actually English, but if you add a whole bottle of whisky you get the Scottish accent, the same phenomena occur with the Irish.

I worked a place once where a majority of the people there have convictions on their records hence why they could almost only work there , who did not even speak like this.

The cool "thug life" visage I guess wore off during their years in prison.

Which I found surprising.

full english makes texting far easier to understand. although i do hate it when predictieve text changes the word and you dont notice so you send a message like
" ok. im shaking u up from u.
tony"

quote from a text mum sent me. it came up on my screen like that. u stands for uncle, i didnt realise that.

Your cell phone calling someone without permission. You never know what the person on the other end is listening to or how long.

Is that what's known as "butt dialing", Sarah?
