What an interesting word. And so true for me, I am totally skint this month is such an accurate statement for me as well (haha!)
"Skint" is a good word to know in this day and age! Thanks.
Good word, and very apt. I was here for about 5 years before I ran across that one.
Lordy Mike, you must be running in some wealthy circles!! LOL
I like the word not the being broke part. I'm a little skint too,and taxes are coming up! Oh joy!
I love these BWOTD posts! When we had been in London about a month some of the office guys stopped outside my door & had this conversation:"I could really go for a Fag! I've been humping boxes all day!"I was a bit taken aback & it took me awhile to work up the courage to ask someone what they could possibly have meant!
Ahhh ... I love your BWOTD! I'm a HUMONGOUS anglophile. I love british colloquilisms!!! Thanks!
This is one of those words that sounds like it means. Or means like it sounds. It's perfect.
If this economy keeps going to pot, we're all going to be skint in this country.... And that's not funny!!!Hugs,Betsy
Oh, yeah, we are so skint because we are still waiting after 2 months for his unemployment check to come. They keep saying he should get it soon. They made mistakes they are trying to correct.
"Skint" I thought that was a USA 1930's depression or backwoods, redneck, hillbilly word with the same meaning! Too funny, Sarah. Love your words!
Oh yes. In much use at the moment. I am trying to teach the difference between Brummie and Black Country here in return for Manx words. I think I'll get Bostin officially classed as A Manx word soon.
Fellow Brit in the USA here! I'm skint too!
I think just about everybosy will be skint before long. Maybe Barack and Gordon will come up with some bright ideas. One would be giving those obnoxious greedy prats in the banks a good kicking where it hurts, their pockets.
As a scouser over in California everyday life is made interesting every time I open my mouth.
Haha I have often used this word. Great bwotd!
All these words I never even think of until I see them here. Another good one.
