I was in South Shields for first job this morning. Further inland the snowier it got but even if it was snow with the very slight wind I'd have still been out. Might have put my hot water on though 🤣

If you met them from up yonder you'd know why 😂

Pit yakkers really with been from pit villages, higher up in the dales we would call them wollybacks

How can you work like that 😱 Your pole clamps are all over the place 🥺

Lad I work with will change the flow controller from 50 to 51, just cause he knows how much it annoys me 😑

With your age are you sure it's not rust

You're high up to us, not personally, just where you live. No pits left and can't really call you that because I live 100 yards from what was Ryhope pit.

Ah, that explains it then. St. Helens is an old mining town. I was once told that it was something to do with them having more money and being able to afford sheepskin coats. Certainly not true nowadays though, old mining towns are some of the poorest places in the country.

Must admit I thought it was people from Wales coming to Merseyside that we used to call Woolybacks. That's coming from a 'Plastic Scouser' 🙂 

Funny how same nick names used in different parts of the UK for different people. 🙂

Yeah,  I get what you the woolyback term maybe used about someone living higher up a rural.

Definitely not tall, remember the day we met up.

You mean a placky scouser (That will only work if you say it in a Scouse accent)

I remember when I was 23ish, on a night out in Liverpool and some bird asks where I'm from. Once I said St. Helens she literally pushed my face with her hand and called me a dirty wool 🤣
