    Default Foreign sayings creeping into your daily lives

    We're largely an international community on here and as such I've caught myself saying things that I used to normally never say. Mate for example is something I never said unless I was doing a Crocodile Dundee or Steve Irwin impersonation. Anybody else catch themselves being influenced by our international DJTT members?

    I went from getting my panties in a bunch to getting my knickers in a twist.

    Banger used to mean a hot track. Now it means link sausage.

    It's all smiTTTen's fault.

    Things have gone from being 'really good' to 'well good'... also a certain 'c' word seems to have made it's way in to rather liberal use, I should probably be careful about that lol.

    Also picked up some italian expressions but that's not the fault of DJTT forums

    I've seen "mate" creep into my spoken vocabulary too.
