AIBU to think this phrase is not used much anymore in this day and age? And if someone did say it, you'd find it mildly amusing?

I like it! I might feel a bit silly saying it though. I dont know, I do say some silly things on a regular basis so I dont think anyone would find me stranger than usual.

I use it occasionally. Especially when I want to sound chaptastic!

I say it now and again, in an exaggerated posh voice.

ReindeerBollocks Thu 15-Nov-12 11:09:03

I say this to mates I haven't see in a while then bump into.

Didn't realise people don't use it.

DH says it when people ring up blush

It's a damn sight better than...

"Alright Fuck Face? How is one?" From my brother.

So your DH uses it in everyday conversation? I can understand you saying it in an exaggerated posh voice, but as general chit chat goes it doesn't fit anymore does it?

grin @ molepoms brother.

Funnily enough I have friends who would greet me like that too..

grin at Molepom's bro.

I use it with certain friends.

We've got one friend who sometimes says this. But it's definitely tongue in cheek when he does. I think I'd find it really weird as an ordinary speech pattern.

My stepsons usual greeting is "wassup fuckers"... hmm

FIL always uses it when he rings up. It is said in a tongue-in-cheek way, yes. DH also uses it on occasion to his brother or mates - they all do a jokey faux-posh thing when they get together.

BF says 'well hello!'

Sounds sort of creepy

Except now DS with his echolalia has started saying it all the time!

'well HELLO'

I'd like it. It would make me smile.
