Vas, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaate ,

"About 6k to fix and give the whole thing a fresh up.
Or about 14k for the 5 speed."

Ouch ....sounds painful on the old hip pocket. Although it sounds like you were preparing for this eventuality, so I suppose you have been saving up your pennies like a good boy to pay for it.

Imagine the fun i had language wise with my coworkers @ the previous gig
One Ozzy next to me
One Northern english other side
One Glaswegian Scottish
And the rest of the building
2 Edinbourough Scottish
Russian
Ukrainian
South African
NZ
American from Oklahoma
American from LA
Mexican
etc etc

i can't really do em on my own, can't remember the details to well, but i'll but i can pick up on those accents and adapt to em in minutes..
Even on the phone, typically by the end of the call, i'm speaking the other guy's accent.
I don't really have an english accent of my own..

last year , somebody from norther england visited my uncle, and i was there.
Ended up talking with em, and they asked if i had lived in Leeds or something, because i had the accent and sayings nailed down so well. (best mate at previous work was from Leeds).

Welp, time to strap on the dreaded logging boots and go to the place I detest for a few more hours. I can't wait till someone buys my house so I can semi retire and fully retire from the auto industry................

we did do that, i brought bee'ah

And decent beer too, Piraat, Duvel, Achel, Chouf, stuff that looks like ordinary beer, goes down like slightly better beer, but hits you like a ton of bricks.

There was a charity auction as well , auctioning off old hardware(worked for computer company).. Some were so drunk, they kept bidding and ended up with like 7 monitors when they really needed 1 pc.

I converted many folks to the ways of the Belgian brew.. Made True believers out of em.

Typical trick when a forner came to visit, was to take him to the pub, and we'de all drink Duvel.. all trained, the forner never stood a chance thinking it was just pils.

Then in the morning, we wait and see what time the forner made it.. usually they didn't make it till noon.

OK I have to ask.

Urban Dictionary: maggot-bag

The Urban dictionary does not have an answer.

Maggot pie = meat pie
Maggot bag = a bag of maggots ??

So I assume the meat in the meat pie is small chunks and some of the chunks look like a maggot.

I understand a bag of maggots would be a disgusting thing. Does it have some special meaning to a baker? Please explain to a clueless Okie.
