Noticed the Irish, Welsh and English ones are on the go...

So....You burn yourself to a crisp after five minutes being out in the sun.

Pizza from the chip shop comes deep fried.

You deep fry a mars bar grin

MothratheMighty Mon 24-Feb-14 19:28:33

You think the bagpipes are tuneful.

You don't think you or your PFB will melt in the rain.

You find the Edinburgh festival inconvenient.

pictish Mon 24-Feb-14 19:28:43

The phrase 'fuck off' can mean 'really?'

You look at chip shop workers in horror when they offer salt and vinegar not salt and sauce

You spent your childhood summer holidays in North Berwick, Pitlochry or Aviemore.

You don't get odd looks when you mention red cola

OhGoveUckYourself Mon 24-Feb-14 19:29:41

You know all the names of the Broons and love Oor Wullie.

Irn Bru is a tried & tested hangover cure.

pictish Mon 24-Feb-14 19:30:23

How means why.

whohasnickedmyvodka Mon 24-Feb-14 19:30:58

The highlight of your holiday was a haggis supper in the rain at largs smile

When you're drunk and the proclaimers or Loch Lomond comes on, you dance.

MrsMot Mon 24-Feb-14 19:31:07

You know that 'getting the messages' doesn't mean checking your emails.

IrnBruTheNoo Mon 24-Feb-14 19:31:45

You can ask for a FISH SUPPER and not be glared at like you're from outer space.

Oh and the toaster lives on the bunker

IrnBruTheNoo Mon 24-Feb-14 19:32:19

I love the phrase 'getting the messages'! You hardly hear that nowadays MrsMot sad

TheBigBumTheory Mon 24-Feb-14 19:32:37

Everyone takes the piss out of your accent à la miss Jean Brodie when you order a dry white wine.

pictish Mon 24-Feb-14 19:32:51

You can say Auchtermuchty with ease.

whohasnickedmyvodka Mon 24-Feb-14 19:33:01

You ask for well fired rolls

IrnBruTheNoo Mon 24-Feb-14 19:33:06

Oh oh MsInga the bunker! A word that seems to have gone extinct almost sad

'First, please' prompts you to move to a free cashier.

You're regularly called a hen.

Chips n cheese.

IrnBruTheNoo Mon 24-Feb-14 19:34:32

You think that the twinnies fae Auchtermuchty (The Proclaimers) are fantastic.

When you move out of Scotland dreams of battered haggis haunt you for decades. sad

When "hello you big cunt"

Means "gosh , I'm so pleased to see you"

My mum and her family are Scottish and I was born there. My friends always looked baffled when they came for tea and we're told it was ready and waiting on the bunker!
