Away Jackie
« on: Dec 23, 2008, 13:34 »
Hello

A storm has arisen at work relating to the above term "Away Jackie" and i was hoping the members of this forum would be able to put the issue to bed once and for all.

My wife assures me that when she used to work at Team Valley a number of her colleagues used to refer to each other as "Jackie", eg "hurry up Jackie", "Away Jackie" etc.

My tormentor who claims to be a true Geordie assures me that this a absolute rubbish and has such bet £10 that i cannot find people within 25 miles of Newcastle who refer to people as "Jackie"

Please help!

You're born alone, you die alone.  Anything in between is make believe.

Thanks!

Does that mean you're aware of the term/phrase?

Yes (which is prob a bit odd since I'm not from the NE at all. Attention to detail, I guess) and I know it's not about the drink, of course, but I always think of my beloved Jackie when I hear the phrase. I reckon your missus could be right, though. Women are cunny.

Don't mean to sound pushy but does the lack of responses mean i'm going to have to payout?  73 views and only 1 reply id not looking good.  Please reply if you know what i'm rabbiting on about.
Cheers

Right...  I dont know if this will help ??

Anyway...  a young lad I know " Jackie"  works for a big company and I thought that was his name...

Sadly not....    apperently his got a double barrelled first name....   about 6 middle names then his surname

Just for ease....  he was nickname "whoah" (our) Jackie

Its been his known name for years and he always responds to it and  to be honest I dont know his real name

So Yes  I think in some areas  if you have a stupid or repative name...  some of the old schoool will call you Jackie

Also if your delivering onto building sites...  it common for the leccy  to shout  "ower he Jackie"    drop it off here   ??

Hope this helps ?
