    From personal experience I know people here are very very very VERY quick to jump on anyone who dares to ask a question & respond with "WHY DON'T YOU SEARCH".


    At least you're one of those who stuck with that viewpoint & actually did a search instead of waving your arms around demanding attention.


    My wife being from another country, i hear different phrases all the time, even 15+ years in. I just ask what they mean. Usually i can figure out depending on how they're used. I don't start crying over them because i've never heard them before.

    The problem for me was that, instead of explaining it, the OP just repeated it replacing "a**e" with "rear end" which didn't help at all.

    Well, the OP did also include a link to an article that explained the meaning.

    Eventually.

    I'm 'from the north' and had never heard the expression.

    In which part of the country is that?

    Currently Lincs but I work with people from everywhere so location isn't particularly relevant in my case.

    Well I was born in Manchester and have lived all my life in GMR and I've never heard the expression ever. Perhaps having been to grammar school, MGS no less, I've clearly mixed since then with a better class of person.

    I think the whole thing is a bum rap.

    Che?

    I’m from the North too, and haven’t heard it either.

    I’m also sensible enough to know that using a colloquialism without explaining it on a national forum is stupid, despite those desperate to be contrarian and try to support the OP.

    According to the article, "See your !!!!" means "Be annoyed". Apparently it's from Manchester - though I've family from Manchester and I've *never* heard that expression before.

    However, if we we accept the meaning from The Mirror (because The Mirror has never been known to publish falsehoods) it still doesn't make sense in the given context.

    Barclays have, seemingly, withdrawn counter services from post office branches - why does that make them annoyed?

    If you ‘see your a**e’ with someone or something, it means that the someone or something has annoyed you so you don’t speak/deal with them anymore.

    I’m from Manchester, it’s a fairly common saying. I’ve heard people not from here use it too.

    From personal experience I know people here are very very very VERY quick to jump on anyone who dares to ask a question & respond with "WHY DON'T YOU SEARCH".

    I always find that obnoxious, because 99/100 it's quicker just to answer the question than to go "why don't you search? I am very smart. I have never known love."

    The only ones that annoy me are the ones where they ask questions about their accounts which only their bank can answer, or where it would make more sense to call the bank first to ask what's up well before coming to MSE with the question.

    Even more annoying are responses to the question: "How do you do x?"
    with "Why do you want to do x? It would be much better to do y!"

    Grrr!
