As a bus/coach driver I have to agree with all of that...
But otherwise all the other posts so far ring bells.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Is perfectly acceptable if it's somebody from Yorkshire calling you 'love'.
I accept it might seem odd, and in other parts of the country could be seen as patronising - up here its a common non-gender-specific colloquialism.

Think I prefer 'love' to 'duck'. Still don't know whether "Eh-up mi duck" is a form of endearment, a greeting, an insult or a command to 'duck' or 'get a move on'. What is the reply to "Eh-up mi duck", is there one? is a reply necessary.

  • litter louts

  • "pop" music or whatever they call it these days

You often see/hear folks try to pronounce them,  without realising its much more subtle and is more of a speech punctuation.
