Put a zip in it

and to follow from, Maggs. 'Zip yir lip'.

Not so polite - 'Shut yir cakehole'

And not exactly the same idea - and not polite but effective.

'Are yie talkin' tae me or chewin' a brick?'

Don't use the latter on someone who is drunk or whom you suspect might reciprocate with greater aggression.

The one I hear most often is:

'Can you wait a wee minute, I'm watching/listening to this?'

shurrup!

quit yapping

Haud yer wheesht

give your tongue a rest

Haud yer wheesht - I love that one.

So much more interesting than all that 'Talk to the hand' nonsense.

Still it worries me that in my head I immediately see the word 'lassie' tagged onto the end.

I think it must have been directed at me manys a time when I was wee - and not so wee.

Furr the pan breed.......

Like...ah'll pan yer clock in.

:lol:

I've never heard that one, weekie. Or are you just making it up?

It reminds me of the time when my sister cam to live with me when I was about 24 and she was 18. I had to keep asking her what she meant - it was 'clock this' and 'check that'.

After having lived in London for a few years I was a bit out of the picture with regard to current Glaswegian slang. It caused some difficulties.

One night one of my brother's friends, who lived round the corner from us got locked out and he came to our house and asked: "Can I zap out here'. I really got the wind up because I thought that he wanted to take drugs. Now if he had said:'Can I kip on the sofa?" - that would have been fine.
