Sore finger
An expression often used by Chinese people who own/work in chip shops.
They are actually saying "salt and vinegar?" but if you're not an experienced chip shop go-er you will have no idea what they're on about.

All hands to the pumps
Help! The phrase comes from sailing days when a leak in the hull required immediate help in bailing out the incoming seawater. A variant is “all hands and the cook on deck,” meaning the entire ship's roster was needed in an emergency, even the cook, who was never expected to participate in mariner activities.

Strong in the arm, weak in the head.
(Change to the the city of your choice.)

And you don't get salt and vinegar at the fish and chop shop, Chinese or not. You haven't for years. What you get is a liquid flavored with chemicals and acid that have a similar bite to vinegar. It's lots cheaper. Ask to see the bottle next time. If it's a genuine vinegar bottle, , taste it. Vinegar does not taste salty..

The Police Office initiated on the Thames in 1798. It is the first official police office. It is responsible for:
Police "Station" when the boats were on station; and
"Beat" e.g.the police on the beat, which was the beat of the oars in the water as they policed the pool.

In those days the Thames was so busy, it took 2 months for a ship to be released and get out of London and the police were busy with all sorts of crimes.

I wonder if Liverpool was similar.

"I think the technical term is, schitzo
Dual personality, multiple personality, or Dissociative Identity Disorder, is a mental health disorder in which a patient develops one or more distinct identities or altar egos that alternately take control within the same person"

Interesting Tom, very interesting..........mind if I ask what Arfurs take on your statement is?

The difference is this, Many folks can and have vouched for me, lots know me as a person, Can anyone,,anyone at all,, vouch for you or your other jekyll or hyde ? hey ? hey? no, I think not, Only you, the doctors, carers and Rainhill will know you,

Some people prefer to keep a lower profile than others Tom, I happen to be one them, anyway.....lets get back on topic.

Whats Arfur got to say about your earlier comment? I am going to refrain from using the exact term because, unlike yourself who never considers others I believe some of those unfortunate enough to suffer from the condition may find it offensive.

People use this expression when they want to emphasize that a person will not treat others gently. Rather, that person will be very rough. This can refer to being rough in a physical sense, or simply using harsh words in an argument.
