I mean seriously i'm stood here listening to you please don't take the Michael by asking me to blooming well listen when i'm already listening to you for crying out loud and for heavens sake all at the same time.grinSame applies to people who say 'LOOK' at the start of a conversation.

My DS and I had a "listen" count on Ian Thorpe during the Olympics. He said it A LOT!!!

"Now look here" grin My rather posh grandad used to say this all the time.

Politicians use it a lot as well, I've noticed, usually when dodging questions!
