colithian: Can someone explain to me the difference between yobs and chavs? I always thought they were the same thing. Are yobs like frat boys while chavs are white trash?

The thread, dude, the thread. It lurks above you, an insolent sullen gray - and threatening to shower you with knowlege. Don't resist, just let it happen.

I work in a nightclub district in San Francisco, and this is a random Saturday night.

Aquapope: Sorry I posted that last question before reading the thread. If I understand correctly:
Yobs/Yobbos= American White Trash, NASCAR farkheads, "ImaKillmeAhomo" types, assholes.
Chavs=American White Trash, Hipster farkheads, "Ican'tBeliveyouStillListentoThat" types, douchebags.

Is that about right?

I was in London last year, and I really wanted to see the "yobs", but didn't do sufficient research. Everywhere I went all I could find was polite people trying to make my life easier.

My first night there, I didn't realize the tube didn't run all night. I was at a bus stop waiting for 5am because I was too cheap to take a cab. Another guy comes by, we start talking. I was on leave from Kandahar, and we were talking about the Brits on post and their weird little habits like fried toast and beans for breakfast. He says I'm crazy to spend hours waiting until 5am. I tell him it's 4:45am at the moment. He looks at his watch, shrieks, and says he has to be at work at 7. Then he thinks for a second, and tells me if I'm up for it he'll go back to the bar with me because they're open all night and he'd like to buy me a real beer. He had drank a "Stag" at one point in his life, and thought that was what American beer was like.

James, if you're still out there, I wish you and your liver well...

cryinoutloud: wellreadneck: I imagine that even sober it would be difficult to walk in those come-fark-me-pumps.

Ugly, dangerous, and impractical. Probably expensive, too. I don't understand.

At least we understand the phrase "pick up a girl" means just that.

I seem to have lost my Field Guide to British Fauna. Could someone please explain the difference between yobs and chavs so that I might distinguish them in the wild?

Actually, gravity really is weaker in North America than in Europe.

The hell you say.
