Words you don't hear anymore no.3127



Just heard someone say 'lackey' which i haven't heard for years.

As in 'I used to be his lackey' he was referring to being a Labourer
Labourers in the yards were called "Patty Lots" - from when the gaffer would get the lads something to eat if the job had to be worked on late. The tradesmen (welders, shipwrights, caulker/burners, platers) would get a fish lot to eat, and the labourers a patty lot.
