Not really a note, but I once had a customer give his waiter a picture of a steak to show me rather than specifying a temperature.

Gosh...

I had someone today ask for their poached eggs to be over easy. Wha... Seriously???

That's the kind of request that you just stare blankly, not really sure if they're taking the mickey or not. Lol

they're taking the mickey...

 

Colorful local phrase, Jaidyn, but you're going to have to explain it us non-Diggers.

 

Thanks,

 

Mike

Lol, not really sure how... It's when somebody is discreetly making a joke about you or at your expense. I wasn't sure wether this fellow was doing that or not. smile.gif

Thanks, Jaidyn...  it's a nice, idiomatic slang phrase, but I guess I can't use it around here since nobody will have any idea what I'm talking about.

 

I guess our phrase that best matches that is "pulling your leg."

 

It's fun how slang varies from country to country, and even between regions in the same country.

edit: I didn't do too well, slang-wise: I had the idea that "diggers" referred to Aussies generally, but looking it up, I see it's specifically soldiers.

Haha, yep "pulling my leg" is exactly what I meant.

Strangely enough, I still knew what you meant by diggers. Technically it referred to soldiers from WW1 and WW2 that used to dig the trenches, and it just stuck.

Slang is pretty interesting, yea. I'm pretty sure taking the mickey originated somewhat from the UK. I've heard Bear Grylls say it a lot.

OoohhhhKay...

 

Tell us about "sappers." 

 

I know the military engineers definition, but I suppose that's not what you have in mind.
