Would the expression "okey pokey" annoy you if someone was saying it e.g. "okey pokey lets get your coat on and go". AIBU to get irrationally irritated and annoyed by such a phrase?

I've never even heard that before. Okey Dokey?

Haha no I know what you mean certain phrases grind on me. My mum funnily enough has this way of say 'really' and me and DH just look at each other when she says it as we both know how much it grinds on us. sad

Unless it was directed at you, yes yabu.

It would make my teeth itch (to use an MN expression!)


PenguinBear Mon 22-Apr-13 20:09:43

Not okey dokey no, 'okey pokey' . Maybe it was just the way it was said/ interpreted hmm

Never heard it used. However I did know someone once who said 'good gravy' instead of good grief about 20 times a day and it used to drive me round the fricking bend.

"Okey dokey, piggedy pokey!"

Remember Pauline from The League Of Gentlemen?

Jon Arbuckle says 'okey pokey'.

lovesherdogstoomuch Mon 22-Apr-13 20:11:44

yep annoying.

Every time I read the words "chow down" in an article I want to growl..

shaggymaggy Mon 22-Apr-13 20:12:17

"Fricking" annoys me, sorry *2cats". Also "freaking"

YouTheCat Mon 22-Apr-13 20:12:25

Unless it's 'Okey dokey pig in a pokey, jobseekers' in a League of Gentlemen way, YANBU. It would annoy me too.

X post with Mrs Rajesh grin

I would want to kick the backside of someone who said this, HARD. Similarly, people who say "how're ya diddling?" Or talk about yummy, scummy dinners.
But I'm fairly intolerant all round really!
Oh god, just remembered the twat who led a training session who kept saying "ladles and jellyspoons" instead of ladies and gentlemen.

StuffezLaYoni Mon 22-Apr-13 20:14:25

Shit, scrummy, not scummy!

squoosh Mon 22-Apr-13 20:14:36

All these pale to nothingness when set against the horror that is NOM NOM.

What's wrong with 'yum' you fools?

squoosh Mon 22-Apr-13 20:15:29

'Ladies and jellyspoons'??

Take them out and have them executed.

squoosh Mon 22-Apr-13 20:16:52

There was a thread a while ago where someone described receiving an invitation for 'nibbles and sipsies'. That kind of wankery will haunt me on my death bed.

YouTheCat Mon 22-Apr-13 20:18:18

'Sipsies'? hmm

That would put me right off, I prefer to glug or quaff. grin

JeanBodel Mon 22-Apr-13 20:18:28

It's not okey pokey, surely, it's okey cokey. It is around here, anyway.

Sometimes it's 'okey cokey artichokey' (sorry if this makes your head explode with rage).

StuffezLaYoni Mon 22-Apr-13 20:19:50

Squish it was LADLES, so even more irritating.
Nibbles and sipsies has won it for me tho. SIPSIES??

Don't care for "drinkies" either, as in "drinkies with the girlies tonight woo"

PlumSykes Mon 22-Apr-13 20:21:48

Nibbles and sipsies has made me slightly hysterical.

Growlithe Mon 22-Apr-13 20:33:03

What about having a 'cheeky' anything? As in 'just having a cheeky gin and tonic', 'Just off for a cheeky run'.

How about a cheeky foot up your arse you idiot?

PenguinBear Mon 22-Apr-13 20:44:27

Im afraid it was 'okey pokey' that was said <twitch>. In a very soft, gentle voice too, makes it even worse imo!

wiganwagonwheelworks Mon 22-Apr-13 20:48:16

I say okey pokey. I suspect YANBU. But please no-one kick me sad. Or execute me.
