AIBU to really dislike that word and be sick of everyone (mainly chavvy people, sorry...:gets ready for backlashsmile banding it around on FB all the time?!

Maybe I'm just unlucky and it's only people I am friends with, but it seems to be the only adjective a lot of people on my FB can use nowadays.

It's always 'Lush meal out for our anniversary' 'Lush day out with the kiddies today' 'Look at my new dog, isn't he Lush'

Arghhh, I just hate it! Also on the list at the moment is 'Bubba' 'Kiddies' and 'Little Man' angry

Yes, I probably am BU!

Don't ever move to South Wales, they use it all the time.

Oh Hun, you ANBU.grin

YY travelling, I think of it as a Welsh word mostly!

Wolfiefan Sat 11-Mar-17 08:34:26

It's a regional thing. Not a chavvy thing. Never heard it where I used to live. It's used all the time round here.

acornsandnuts Sat 11-Mar-17 08:35:22

I was going to ask of you were from Wales OP. It seems to be very overused there.

Unless you're referring to the shop then STFU!

Can I also add the use of "cheeky" in an attempt to make yourself sound rebellious.

E.g. "Just have a cheeky wee vino a cheeky chow mein"... No Susan, you're 42. You're having a glass of wine with a takeaway and no one cares.

User2005103 Sat 11-Mar-17 08:44:40

Nope, not from Wales, maybe if I was I could be slightly more forgiving!

User2005103 Sat 11-Mar-17 08:45:45

Melina, ditto re the cheeky grin

I have only ever heaed it from certain Welsh people and they have been saying it for years and years. I thought it was charming

ReginaGeorgeinSheepsClothing Sat 11-Mar-17 08:48:21

"OMG! Am totes emosh at that...." yet again Susan, you are not on towie/that other one set in London.. you are from Dumfries and Galloway..

Yabu, in South Wales and surrounding area it's a word everyone uses.

MrsMoastyToasty Sat 11-Mar-17 08:50:33

It's a bristolian thing. We even have a company called Beast (sorry, don't know how to do links ) who print t shirts with "Gert Lush" on them.

GeorgeHerbert Sat 11-Mar-17 08:51:04

I grew up in Bristol. Everything was 'lush'. It's a lovely word!

AalyaSecura Sat 11-Mar-17 08:52:01

North east England too. Just another word for great. (but agree on bubba and little man!)

RhinestoneCowgirl Sat 11-Mar-17 08:53:32

I'm in Bristol, lush is dialect here.

MelinaMercury Sat 11-Mar-17 08:55:02

ARGH Bubba, L'il Man and Princess drive me mad too!

AnarchyKitty Sat 11-Mar-17 08:55:32

I'm from the West Country originally. Lush has been ruined for me thanks to Facebook. Also Gawjus. I have a friend who's been a lecturer for 25 years and uses it. I could weep.

MrsMoastyToasty Sat 11-Mar-17 08:55:43

...georgeherbert ...and if it ain't "lush" it's "mint innit? "...

Also Hubby, Hun, Lol, Cheeky whatever, and those Princess on board stickers.
I'm turning into Victor Meldrew in my advancing years 😰

AnarchyKitty Sat 11-Mar-17 08:59:48

I am so getting one of those T Shirts. It will bring back lovely memories of the county show and seeing The Wurzels with a scrumpy in my hand.

Miniwookie Sat 11-Mar-17 09:01:23

South Wales here. I've been saying lush for 30 yrs. I never say Bubba, hunz or any of those other things YABU

MelinaMercury Sat 11-Mar-17 09:02:23

Oh and I the "omg, i'm ACTUALLY freezing"

No Susan, actually you're not. If you were actually frozen then you would be dead. Stop being over dramatic and put something over your crop-top.
