Just thought I'd share some stuff with you all. I realise that most folk here are not from Scotland, but I hope the humour translates. An English female friend once asked what a "sneb" was, and what was the meaning of the phrase "getting a sneb on". Not the sort of thing to say to someone who is already in a bad mood! - it's this :

Here is the answer : "getting a sneb on" =

"It's too early in the morning, your toothpaste has run out, your mascara runs, your makeup won't stick, you can't find a pair of suitable shoes, there are dog hairs all over your new coat, your knickers are too tight (and on back to front), you're restless, fidgety, impatient, growly, grunty, narky, snarky, barky, you are in serious need of fuse lengthener, and you *so* feel the need to trim yer horns and iron yer chins."

I have to tell you, Mr Jim.. I was chuckling over this bit you've posted when my wife walked through the room and asked what was so funny.  I had been up all night, she had just gotten up and was on her way to the coffeepot.  I assume I don't need to tell you what a dangerous time that can be for humor?

It got a laugh out of her.  You have a way with words, sir.

LOL Jim! I hope those backwards knickers weren't thong-style. rofl

Your story puts me in mind of the children's book "Mrs. Biddlebox" - she was definitely getting a sneb on. "...Her tea was dark and bitter, her crumpets hard to chew." [I have often wondered what the heck is a crumpet?]
