Sometimes I have heard the word Chow being used for food but for goodbye its Ciao,which is an Italian greeting. Certainly you have lots of interesting words there though Snips

Oh,and Cheers Im using all the time.

I have just managed to clean out my shed and soon will be selling off some of the excess crap I have collected. Now though I must get on with printing out some pamphlets for work & answering numerous emails.
Ciao and chow are pronounced the same so I left it that way. I do live in Tappid Valley so most people spell ciao "chow"
Sure you can figure out what Tappid Valley means from what I taught you

Cheers

Fiona, not good that you have to work more due to the boss being away...hope you still manage to get enough rest, you sound very busy indeed!

I know most Ausie slang too, I have a friend that was born in Australia.
I've learned most British and American slang too. I picked up a lot from clients when I was a Stock Broker.
I love the English slang

Since I am the only other person who knows how to do her job...truthfully, things may be hectic but they run smoother when she is gone.

Thanks!

Over two years for this job, before this I worked the floor for 11 years on the night shift. So I have worked for this facility for thirteen years, I know all the secrets.

I get 4 weeks a year for vacation. And I know too much, I would never want to run the place. Besides, I love working with my patients, they are the whole reason I ever became a nurse to begin with.

The only thing that would be better is to run a hospice.
