Here are some British words that most people should know:
- wanker (noun): Technically, someone who enjoys getting off with only themselves present. It’s a good insult. For example, if your colleague says something totally inappropriate, you could say: Don’t be such a wanker!
- rubber (noun): An eraser. OR each hand in a game of cards is also called a rubber.
- bollocks (expletive): Technically, bollocks means balls. However, there are multiple uses. You can use it when you would normally say: No way! or Bullshit! As in: What a load of bollocks! You can also use it when you would normally exclaim: Damn! or Oh shit! As in: If you spilled coffee over your presentation for the boss, you would exclaim: Bollocks!
- ass hat (noun): From the popular insult “to have your head up your ass”.
